Monday – Salmon, hummus and goat cheese salad
Tuesday – The Habit – Dine out Fundraiser
Wednesday- Tuscan Baked Chicken and Beans (October Cooking Light Magazine)
Thursday- Celebrating my brother’s Birthday
So an easy cooking week for me. We have a fundraiser on Tuesday for Sofia’s preschool. Thursday we go to my brother’s house for pasta and salad. Then the weekend is up in the air because we are waiting to hear if the grapes are ready for harvest which would mean Bobby will be away for the weekend and we might have eggs for dinner. We also have tickets to the Dodger game on Saturday night. So who knows what we will be enjoying.
The extremely hot weather makes me not want to turn on the stove or the oven. So I thought I would start the week with a salad and go from there. Hoping for the best of course.

After 2, 3 day school weeks, this is the first week that the kids will be on a regular 5 day schedule. I am looking forward to a normal schedule. Here’s our menu for the week:
Monday: Chef’s salad for me, BLT for the kids
Tuesday: Baked Macaroni and cheese with tomatoes (back to school night and this is an easy dish to make ahead)
Wednesday: Blackened fish taco salad
Thursday: Slow roasted carnitas tacos, rice, guacamole and salsa, of course
Friday: Pizza – ham and pineapple, pepperoni
Saturday: celebrating Yom Kippur with friends (this will be our first time and we are hoping there is some kugel involved)
Sunday: Eat out

Monday – Dining out (We are painting all day so no cooking for me)
Tuesday – Chicken, apple and goat cheese salad
Wednesday – Prosciutto Roasted bass with Autumn Vegetables (Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics)
Thursday – Turkey Paninis and Cannellini soup
Another short school week but I think we will be able to stay with this menu. Last week my menu went smoothly. And at dinner on Friday I had Roy’s Butterfish with Sizzling Soy Sauce. I quickly searched for, and found, the recipe and am hoping to test it out this coming weekend.

Getting back into a more normal schedule for us as the kids head back to school. I also want to cut back our calories by alot to try and lose some of this holiday weight. So this is the plan for the week:
Sunday: leftovers. whole wheat pasta, turkey meatballs and homemade sauce. (Haven’t been to the store yet so this will have to do.)
Monday: chicken soup. I’ll share the recipe on Wednesday.
Tuesday: salmon, goat cheese and hummus salad
Wednesday: chicken tostadas (using leftover chicken from Monday)
Thursday: BBQ pork sandwiches with WW apple and carrot slaw
Friday: Homemade pizza; pepperoni and ??
Saturday: eat out or leftover pizza
Planning to do a major clean out of the kitchen this week. Lots of junk food to get rid of and I need to go back to the things that work for me. Also lots of healthy snacks for the kids. I think I’ll bake something to have when they get home from school, some kind of apple cake. Looking forward to the first week of the new year.
