What’s For Dinner?

Here’s this week’s menu.  I’m trying several new recipes which I hope I’ll be able to share with you soon.  I’m especially anxious to make the Pretzel-crusted chicken.  It looks and sounds delicious!

1-
Chicken & Orzo Soup with Spinach and Lemon
Italian Peasant Bread (bread machine instructions, too)

 2-
Pretzel Crusted Chicken With Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Broccoli Rice Pilaf

 3-
Best Ever Meat Loaf
Herbed Potato Casserole
Green Beans
Cheddar and Herb Biscuits

NOTE:  I made the meat loaf and the potato casserole earlier in the day and put them in the refrigerator until baking time.  I also made the Cheddar and Herb Biscuit batter earlier but I didn’t actually cook them until right before serving time.  All that preparation made dinner time must easier!

4-
Cheesy Manicotti
Salad
Italian Bread

 5-
Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Fries & Green Beans

NOTE:  I always cook the chicken ahead of time, shred it in my Kitchen-Aid or with my
hand mixer (Hate Shredding Chicken? Don’t Have a Kitchen-Aid? This is For You! or Believe It Or Not, You Can Shred Chicken in your Kitchen-Aid!) and then put the chicken and barbecue sauce in my 2.5 quart crock pot.  It’s one less thing I have to do at dinner time.
