menu planning monday 01.26.09

Our weightloss this week was a little less than previous weeks, but using lower-calorie recipes and portion control is still working for us.  I will add in calorie counts after they are all determined.  Here is to another great healthy-eating week!

MondaySalmon Cakes (125 calories each) with fresh steamed asparagus (2 calories each) and baked sweet potato (50 calories); Prep: make pumpkin bread for lunchboxes
Tuesday: Teriyaki Chicken Thighs with soup and bamboo rice (80 cal/ .5 cup).  Blueberry-Banana Smoothies for our Bible Reading group dessert.

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: Dinner at church will be Chicken stir-fry, fried rice, salad and dessert. Prep: make oatmeal bars for lunchboxes

Thursday: Dan Dan Noodles with pickled cucumbers (450 calories) 

FridayFish Tacos (290 calories each) with Tijuana Kitchen Rice (200 calories/cup); Prep:  Make white chocolate-macadamia nut cookies and rice krispies treats for a college care package

Sous-chef Saturday: We are going to rotisserie a couple of cornish game hens and use the Mimi's Sticky Chicken seasonings, julienne and saute some zucchini, and cook up a little pasta.

Hospitality Sunday: Beef Stew and cornbread to share with friends after church.
