Menu Plan Monday

This week we go back to school so I thought we might have a little fun with dinner and try some new recipes.  All of the recipes will be from Jamie Oliver's cookbook The Return of the Naked Chef

We are also going to have a few families over for our school's observed "Back to School Night" - we don't actually start until Thursday.

Monday - Stracci (Homemade Pasta w/veggies) and Mozzarella & Grilled Chili Salad
Tuesday - "Back to School Night" Hot Dogs, Chips & Hot Sauce, and Salads
Wednesday - Roasted Garlic & Thyme Risotto with Watercress & Pear Salad
Thursday - Fantastic Roasted Chicken w/ Potatoes & Celeriac and Baked Carrots w/Cumin
Friday - Date Night

This is part of Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.


  1. I have never heard of Stracci. Sounds like a good way to get rid of some of the eggplant that I have been overwhemingly blessed with.

  2. Howdy Ms. Cathy! This will be my first time to ever make pasta. We love eggplant. If you cook it like in ratatouille, you can freeze it. Thanks for stopping by!
