Menu Plan Monday 2-6-2012

I am feeling very "Eyore-ish" this morning.  Despite disaster, the sun rises and life goes on.  I won't lie that I am thoroughly disappointed in my beloved Patriots, and this game could have been theirs had they just been a but sharper on the receivers.  I am trying desperately to hold to the ideal I had a week ago that win or lose they made it and some one has to go home without a trophy.  Unfortunately it is us today.  no good.

So here is my menu plan for the week.  Simple because I need to get rid of ALL this left over food.  YIKES.

Monday:  BBQ kielbasa with mashed potatoes and spinach

Tuesday:  Spaghetti and meatballs

Wednesday: Greek chicken thighs with lemon and potatoes with green beans
Chicken with lemon -- Kotopoulo Lemonato
2 to 3lb. ready to cook, quartered Roaster
1/2 cup Butter
juice of 1 1/2 Lemon
1/2 cup hot Water
2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
5 Large potatoes quartered length wise
1 tbls oregano
Saute chicken in frying pan in hot butter until golden on all sides; remove to 3 quart casserole.Add potatoes, pour over the strained lemon juice and water. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and oregano. Bake covered for 1 hour, or until chicken is tender, basting every 20 minutes. Remove chicken to heated platter; pour sauce over chicken. 

Thursday: Hamburger Helper 

Friday:  Crockpot Lasagna - my Pinterest project

Saturday: Leftovers

Nothing exciting, but that's going to be the tone of the week.  I can only hope a good score from my coupon guy may lighten the mood.

PS.  Redtinis?  not terribly impressed...maybe we made them wrong.  Kateena and I added more liquid and by liquid I mean vodka, but nothing really to write home about.  hmmmm
