Dinner Diva Menu Week of 11/1

Funny how the very first post on this blog was 1/11, and now here we are on 11/1. Time flies and has a tendency to flip flop on us.

Sunday: Caramelized Onion Chicken, roasted green beans, steamed brown rice

(I think this recipe should be called Raspberry Chicken, but who am I to say?) I do want to try it with the black currant too at some point.

Monday: ribs, sauteed apples, steamed broccoli

Tuesday: hot dogs/brats on the grill, baked beans, steamed edamame
(Tuesdays are kid-food days. I let mine make their own hot dogs in the microwave.)

Wednesday: Meal Swap Day, Kary's turn to cook

Thursday: Meal Swap Day, my turn to cook
Chicken Stew in bread bowls, fruit salad

Here's an article on how to make your own bread bowls from frozen bread dough:

Friday: Sweet Orange Salmon, spinach salad, Wheat Pilaf
I make this one alot, because it's so easy, so good and everyone in my house loves it. Look for Wheat Pilaf in a box by Near East. It might be in the ethnic section or by the Rice-A-Roni. (Substitute a hearty rice a roni, like a wild rice version, if you can't find wheat pilaf.)

Saturday: pizza night
