Menu plan 5/28/12

Happy Memorial Day.  I hope that you had some time to spend with some loved ones, here and passed.

Memorial weekend Sunday we had a cook out and had a bunch of people over for a family get together.  Jaimie made lamb and chicken over a fire pit, covered by a canvas tarp.  We also had Waldorf salad made by my MIL, Texas sheet cake, also by my MIL, fruit salad, and deviled eggs.  Since I knew we'd have leftover lamb and chicken, this week's menu is based on that.

Monday: Shawarma - made with leftover smoked lamb from our triple birthday party (marinated in yogurt, garlic, ras al hanut powder and lemon juice), put in a pita pocket and topped with tzatziki (Jaimie makes his with plain yogurt and cucumbers, with some onion and garlic), tomatoes, onion, and garlic hummus.

Tuesday:  BBQ chicken sandwiches, onion rings, and pickled veggies

Wednesday:  South west chicken in couscous with tomatoes and cilantro from the garden

Thursday:  A whole chicken (it's already thawed, so it's got to be cooked), potato fries, corn on the cob, and maybe a blooming onion (I found an onion cutting contraption at the thrift store and the menu book includes an Outback style onion and sauce).

Friday:  Oriental style salad (lots of lettuce in the garden) with chicken, mandarin oranges, sunflower seeds and whatever else we toss in there.

Saturday:  Pasta.  Any remaining meat can be tossed into the sauce or used for next week's plan.  Generally, we don't eat meat every day, but I hate to waste.

Have a great week.
