MPM - Week of 4/7/08

Once again, last week's plan got derailed at some point. Probably due to the frenzy of cleaning, due to the open house we had today. The open house where one person showed up. At least that's better than the last open house. And it only takes one buyer, right?

Anyway, two of the items for this week's menu plan are carried over from last week - the sticky chicken and the chicken quesadillas. So, without further ado...

Menu for the week of 4/7/08
Monday: Sticky Chicken with stuffing and green beans
Tuesday: Quesadillas, using the left-over Sticky Chicken, with corn and chips
Wednesday: Up for Grabs
Thursday: Pork BBQ in slow cooker with french fries and veggies
Friday: Grilled marinated steak (see below for marinade recipe)
Saturday: Sweet and Spicy Chicken in slow cooker (I am modifying this recipe, by using it with bone-in chicken breasts instead of wings)
Sunday: Up for Grabs

By the way, I made this recipe for teriyaki chicken last week and it was a hit! It's definitely one to keep in the recipe file. Go to to look at more great menus!

Steak Marinade
1/3 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup salad oil (I usually use olive oil)
1/8 cup Worcestershire
1 tbsp dry mustard
2 tsp salt
1 tsp parsley
1 1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 crushed garlic clove
1/4 cup lemon juice

Blend all ingredients together in blender for 1/2 minute. Marinade steak to your heart's content. Grill. Enjoy.

Sounds like a great week. I've seen tons of people making the sticky chicken this week. I guess I'll have to try it one of these days. Enjoy all your yummy food.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
