Sunday--Homemade vegetable soup, rolls
Tuesday--Turkey roast, baked potatoes, veggie
Wednesday--Fish and sides
I based these on the recipe from Melissa D'Arabian from Ten Dollar Dinners on FoodNetwork.com.
- 8 flour tortillas (5-inch) (I used whole wheat flour tortillas)
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup prepared chunky salsa, divided
- 3/4 cup cooked black beans
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar, pepper jack would be good, too)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut off the outer edge of each tortilla and remove so that the tortillas fit snugly into the muffin tin cups. Brush both sides of the tortillas lightly with the melted butter and sprinkle with salt. Press the tortillas into the muffin tin, creating little tortilla cups. (I had larger tortillas and cut each into quarters, fitting two quarters into each muffin section. I did not brush with butter or sprinkle with salt, but did spray each tin to prevent sticking.)
In a small bowl, mix half the salsa with the black beans and season with salt and pepper. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each tortilla cup. Crack an egg into each of the eight cups. Bake until barely set, about 8 minutes. Top with cheese, cover with aluminum foil (I did not cover), and then bake for 6 to 7 minutes more. To serve, spoon sour cream and remaining salsa on top of the eggs.
We ate this with cornbread (I use the recipe on the Quaker yellow corn meal container) and orange slices.
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 pkg. chocolate chips (12 oz.)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 T. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
For crust: Mix together butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda and oatmeal. Pat 2/3 of mixture onto bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Reserve remaining mixture.
For filling: Melt chocolate chips (in double boiler or microwave). Add sweetened condensed milk, butter, salt and vanilla. Pour over the oatmeal layer. Drop pieces of remaining oatmeal mixture over the top. Drop with teaspoons. Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Sunday--Chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing
Monday--Fish, rice, cole slaw
Tuesday--Roast, carrots and potatoes
Wednesday--Chicken patties, sides TBD
Thursday--Pork stir fry with brown rice
2 cups all-purpose flour for coating (I did not coat the chicken in flour, just browned the chicken in oil)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces (I used chicken drumsticks)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped (I used different colored peppers)
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup white wine (I used apple juice)
2 cups fresh mushrooms, quartered
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Shake the chicken pieces in flour until coated. Heat the oil in a large skillet (one that has a cover/lid). Fry the chicken pieces until they are browned on both sides. Remove from skillet.
Add the onion, garlic and bell pepper to the skillet and saute until the onion is slightly browned.
Return the chicken to the skillet and add the tomatoes, oregano and wine. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes over medium low heat.
Add the mushrooms and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 more minutes.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and carrots and sauté over medium heat until onion is translucent.

I read reviews that compared the kale chips to potato chips. Other than the crispiness, I didn't get the similarity. Maybe some day we'll try again, but not for awhile!
Sunday--Cheddarwurst, kale chips (fail!) and canned tropical fruit
Monday--Turkey wraps on sun dried tomato and basil tortillas, Stonyfield vanilla yogurt with raspberries, raw sugar snap peas
Tuesday--Pizza hot dish, salad
