Weekly Menu Plan: May 24- 30, 2010



This week I am revisiting some StoneGable standby recipes. They are easy, delicious and one's that are tried and true family favorites! A recent favorite is a wonderful pizza from Faithfulness Farm. My family thinks this pizza is the best! Thanks Mrs. P!

It would not be a good cooking week however, if I didn't have a couple of new things on the menu. I love to peruse all the great dishes posted on Foodie Friday. This week I just couldn't resist the sound of Orzo Asparagus Salad and Kickin' Pasta Sauce.  Both are from very talented cooks in bloggland.

Monday:
Shrimp Scampi with Bowtie Pasta
Ceaser Salad

Recipe: Shrimp Scampi with Bowtie Pasta
This is a wonderfu and tasty recipe from the Barefoot Contessa. I find her recipes consistently delicious and
quite do-able. Click HERE for recipe. I am making it with bowtie pasta instead of linguini.

Tuesday:
Grilled Chicken in StoneGable Marinade
Orzo Asparagus Salad

Recipe: Grilled Chicken in StoneGable Marinade
My go-to marinade will work wonders on chicken breasts or tenders. Click HERE and find this fabulous and my very favorite marinade recipe under Tuesday's menu.

Put chicken in a zip lock bag with marinade. Marinade for 30 minutes to 8 hours. Remove chicken from the bag and discard marinade. Grill chicken.

Recipe: Orzo Asparagus Salad
This recipe comes from Red Couch Recipes, a blog I am smitten with. I think this dish sounds so delicious and I can't wait to give it a try. Click HERE for this spring inspired recipe.

Wednesday:
Ravioli with Kickin' Pasta Sauce
Greek Salad

Recipe: Ravioli with Kickin" Pasta Sauce
I really excited to try this yummy sounding pasta sauce that comes from Delightful Country Cookin'! This is not a delicate or whimpy sauce, but one that has meat and full flavors. Oh, this sounds perfect! I am putting it over store bought cheese ravioli. Click HERE to get this soon to be favorite recipe.

Recipe: Greek Salad
I could make this salad with my eyes closed. Very rich and satisfying and full of great  and vibrant flavors! I love this for lunch and have it often. But my family craves it for dinner too. Click HERE for a salad you are sure to love too!
