Have you ever gotten to a day on your menu and said, "Meh?" All of us ditched Saturday pizza. We just weren't feeling it. I had some extra eggs, a few wheat tortillas left, I picked some hash brown potatoes up at the grocery and defrosted some turkey bacon and some wheat bagels. Voila! Breakfast wraps and potatoes for dinner.
Here goes for this week:
Sunday/Monday: Vegetarian wheat pasta lasagna with steamed broccoli and salad
Tuesday/Wednesday: I'm on my own. There will be lasagna left over for at least Tuesday. Wednesday can be a veggie burger.
Thursday: Toasted cheese sandwiches and soup. (Arts and Literature Festival at school. We need something not terribly involved.)
Friday: It's Hubs' Birthday! Baked Chicken with cornbread dressing, rolls, some other vegetable and salad. Oooo! And Jello cake! (His favorite!)
Saturday: Chicken sausage, a vegetable and salad.
I should add that this was the first time I've made lasagna (I haven't made many, though) without cooking the noodles. The directions said not to cook them, though I didn't read the directions thoroughly. The noodles still seemed stiff after cooking for the length of period specified. When re-reading, I realized that I was to head the spaghetti sauce, which I hadn't done. I figured that crunchy noodles needed more moisture, so on a few different occasions, I added some extra water to the top and I kept the lasagna cooking. (Covered with foil.) In the end, I think I may have saved it! At least it is puffed up with a cooked noodle type consistency when poked with a toothpick. Next time, I will cook the sauce.
Have a great week!
