Menu Plan Monday



I guess I must subconciously feel bad for feeding my family such simple meals last week, because this week I've decide to be a little more industrious in the kitchen. What can I say? I like to cook!

However, I'm planning in one night to eat out. Every girl needs a break, right? Plus we have found this great restaraunt where all four of us can eat, and eat heartily, for about $10 total! Gotta love that Arabic food!! Cheap and healthy!!

This week's recipe, for Cobb Salad, is a perfect summer meal - light and refreshing with a delicious citrusy dressing. Try it!

Sunday - Chicken and Onions with Creamy Wine Sauce, rice and salad

Monday - Lasagna, caesar salad and garlic breadsticks

Tuesday - Koosa Mahshi (Stuffed Zucchini), tabbouleh

Wednesday - Arabic Meatloaf and a chopped salad

Thursday - Cobb Salad (recipe below)

Friday - Barbeque (of course!)

Saturday - Eat out!!

Cobb Salad

Lemon Vinaigrette

Combine the following ingredients in a tightly lidded jar:

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 T. red wine vinegar
  • 2 t. sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. dry mustard
  • 1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/ t. pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced

Refrigerate while you prepare the salad.

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 head of lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup diced chicken or turkey (I use thickly sliced deli turkey torn up - it's easy!)
  • 1 cup diced ham (again, I use it from the deli!)
  • 3 chopped hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 chopped medium tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 4 slices of crisply cooked bacon, crumbled (I use turkey bacon)

Arrange lettuce in a wide dish. Place meats, eggs, and tomatoes in attractive rows across the lettuce. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon and top with the vinaigrette. Serve!!
