Last weeks Monday Menu was such a hit we are going to keep going every Monday  – and give away an advance copy of THE WHAT’S FOR DINNER SOLUTION every Monday until October 1st when the book comes out.

I have to say, I LOVED your menus last week. As one poster said “I want to go live at their houses…”  So this week, I’m going to give you two chances to win: 1. Your first chance to win is by posting your menu. 2. If you share one of your favorite recipes in the comments, I will enter you again.

Here in my menu for Monday – Friday

Monday: Eating out (after our weigh in – yep – that’s when we eat it up…)

Tuesday: Sushi (because Roger is at a meeting and he hates sushi…)

Wednesday: Chicken Marsala and Mashed New Potatoes, Asparagas

Thursday: Curry chicken and veggies, on Jasmine Rice

Friday: BBQ Chicken, BBQ Corn, Baked Potatoes

So since I’m asking you to share some of your favorite recipes, I’m re-sharing one of mine. I’m doing this one on Saturday night when we start our Sabbath.

When I shared this recipe before, two people commented that they didn’t have any of these ingredients in their homes and it would be a waste. I don’t want to be wasteful, but once you try this recipe you will want to have it every week. Don’t worry. These ingredients will be used up…

Don’t forget to enter to win!
