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!

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

Pretzel Crusted Chicken With Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Broccoli Rice Pilaf

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!

Cheesy Manicotti
Italian Bread

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.
