New recipes and Meal plan for the week.

This post is a little late, but better late than never.  I'll be trying 2 new recipes this week: Zucchini Casserole from Kirsta's Kitchen and Cilantro Chicken from the 2010 Taste of Home Annual Recipes book.

Sunday: Grilled cheese and baked fries (quick and easy)
Monday: Zucchini Casserole with salad
Tuesday Italian Sausage sandwiches with pierogies and broccoli
Wednesday: Cilantro Chicken with Saffron Rice and cauliflower (YUM!)
Thursday: Filet steaks with baked potatoes (sweet and regular) and salad. These steaks were a steal at Acme last week. $4.99 a pound. Paid $12 for 7 steaks.
Friday: we eat with my mom.
Saturday Grilled turkey burgers- a staple at our house once a week in the summer. :)

Cilantro Chicken recipe:
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp pepper
4 tbsp. butter, divided
2 large onions, sliced
1/2 c lemon juice
1/4 c minced fresh cilantro
hot cooked rice

Sprinkle chicken with salt, cumin and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook and stir the chicken in 2 tbsp butter until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, saute onions in remaining butter until tender and golden brown. Return chicken to the pan. Stir in the lemon juice and cilantro, bring to a boil. Serve with rice.
Prep/Total time: 30 min. Recipe by Mary Pipkin featured in Taste of Home.
Hope you are inspired to try at least 1 new recipe this week. Enjoy your week!
