At Cafe' Faye this week we are serving chicken parmesan, creamy baked chicken, teriyaki tofu and veggie stir fry and more!

What's on your menu this week?

 

 


Monday

Easy Chicken Parmesan
Click HERE for the Chicken Parmesan recipe. In addition to the listed recipe ingredients, I added a 4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms drained, ½ green pepper diced, ¼ onion diced, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and pepper to taste. Chicken was on sale at Lowes Foods for $1.99/lb. I also cut the chicken breasts in half and it still took 40 minutes to cook.

Whole wheat pasta (free at HT during last Super Doubles)

Veggie tray with light ranch for dipping including baby carrots, cucumber slices, green pepper slices and grape tomatoes (most of the produce is on sale at HT through 8/28). My youngest doesn’t like “salad” but loves a veggie tray with all the same salad veggies except lettuce.

Canary melon slices (sister-in-law gave it to us because her weekly CSA produce box had too many for her to use. If you have never had a canary melon, it’s similar to a cantaloupe, although this one did not have a lot of taste).

Tuesday

Creamy Italian Garlic Baked Chicken (baked in 1 container of Philly Italian Herb cooking cream with added garlic and pepper and 4 oz shredded cheese added during last 10 minutes). I made this at the same time I made the chicken parmesan from Monday night’s menu. Why run the oven twice when I can batch cook all at once?!

Rice

Steamed carrots with a touch of butter and Parmesan cheese

Wednesday

Teriyaki stir fry tofu

Stir fry vegetables (mushrooms, onions, zucchini, green pepper)

Rice

Kahiki egg rolls (BOGO at HT and used coupon that Kahiki mailed to me upon request)

Fruit (waiting to see what is on sale on Wednesday)
