Menu 8/15 to 8/21

It's menu plan Monday
Here is what our meals are looking like this week:
We will be rotating much of the same.
We will probably have eggs quite a few times because we got some fresh, organic eggs from a friend last week. We currently have three dozen eggs in our refrigerator. Glad the whole family likes eggs.
We will also eat cereal, waffles, pancakes, french toast, fruit, sausage, bacon . . . you get the picture.

We continue to rotate our favorites.
Grilled cheese with peaches
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with apple slices
Macaroni and cheese with gummies
Leftovers from dinner the night before

Monday - We will get take out pizza because I have a meeting with my graduate school advisor and won't be home until after 7. Tim and George will be at our church's skating night, so we will have to get something quick that takes no preparation.
Tuesday - Salmon (recipe we love at the end of this post), Ranch roasted potatoes, and salad.
Wednesday - Hot dogs on the grill, egg noodles with burned butter, and tomato and mozerella salad (also known as Caprese salad)
Thursday - Hamburgers on the grill, twice baked potatoes, and steamed broccoli
Friday - Take out from somewhere because we will be getting ready for Ethan's first birthday on Saturday
Saturday - Ethan's birthday party:) We will be eating dinner there.
Sunday - Pasta with Tim's secret sauce.

Here is the best and easiest salmon recipe I have ever come across:
2 cloves of garlic (I use 2 teaspoons of the chopped, jarred stuff)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of dried basil
1 teaspooon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of parsley (I use dried also)
2 (6 ounce) fillets of salmon

What to do:
1. Prepare marinade by mixing first seven ingredients.
2. Place salmon fillets in a medium glass baking dish and cover with marinade. Marinate in refrigerator about an hour, turning occasionally.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
4. Place fillets in aluminum foil, cover with marinade, and seal. (I have also just covered the dish with foil and left the salmon in the dish. It works fine both ways.) Place the sealed salmon in the glass dish, and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until easily flaked with a fork.

It is so yummy!!! Let me know if you try it. Salmon is on sale for $7.99 a pound this week at Publix.
