Dinner Diva Delves into '12

Regardless of what will likely happen in subsequent weeks, this week we're starting out with healthy meals, exercise, good attitudes, plenty of sleep, and a strong work ethic applied to household chores and homeschool academics. . . Well, a girl can dream. At least I have a small say over the meals. Handily, this month's Food Network Magazine is dedicated to great food, light. It is here inspiration for the week will be found. Come hungry to the table, my family, and I will cheerfully feed you well.

Monday: Bobby Deen's Baked Spaghetti, Whole Wheat French Bread, Romaine Salad

Tuesday: Lemon Salmon with Lima Beans, baked potatoes

Wednesday: Cajun Stuffed Peppers, Whole Wheat Garlic Toast

(Use the leftover bread from Monday. Slice, spread with nonfat plain yogurt and sprinkle with garlic powder. Broil for just a few minutes until toasty.)

Thursday: Grilled Chicken with Basil Dressing, Steamed Brown Rice, Baked Sweet Potatoes

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: pizza

Sunday: Beef and Barley Soup, whole wheat crackers
