menu plan monday - july 18

We've been trying new recipes around here ~ some we are really in love with! This past week we tried a figure friendly chicken fried rice and a strawberry spinach salad. When Greg asked why I bought the lemons that were in the fruit bowl, I told him it was for the strawberry spinach salad dressing. And then one night he asked what was for dinner and I told him strawberry spinach salad. Every single time I mentioned that meal he said, "Why do you keep saying those two words together?" Turns out, he l.o.v.e.d. it! Even though Stephanie was skeptical about the spinach leaves altogether, she thought it was pretty good. I highly recommend it! So light and refreshing.

This week we are trying a couple of new recipes as well. Some are familiar dishes with a new spin. Hopefully these will be just a delicious as the ones we've tried recently.

  • chicken marsala (new recipe)
  • green chile-chicken casserole (new recipe)
  • classic spaghetti & meatballs (new recipe)
  • southwest salad with cilantro lime dressing
  • chicken quesadilla with corn salad (new recipe)
  • vegetable barley soup
