Menu Plan for December 20

It is like deja vu all over again with this week's menu plan.  Needless to say, we totally didn't stick to the menu plan.  Between needing to work late one night (blech), Mr. Gooch's exams (and related studying), a trip to the auto shop (transmission!) and an all around busy week, we didn't cook much in the evenings last week.  I think we cooked only twice, once the taco pasta and once with a fab salad concocted by Mr. Gooch (posting to come shortly).

But on the positive side, that means that we still have all the fixings for this week's menu in the freezer and the recipes already picked out so prep will be kept to a minimum. 

One nice thing about this week's recipes is that they utilize marinades so you can actually mix the marinade the night before and just throw them on the grill, Griddler, or Foreman Grill when you get home.  This helps to keep cooking time to a minimum. 

So for this week we have on the menu

Monday:  WW Chicken Breast Peruvian (modified from this recipe)
Tuesday:  WW Honey Teriyaki Salmon

Wednesday:  Tri-Tip on the Grill using this preparation
Thursday: Forage in the Fridge
Friday:  Christmas Eve Party at Mom & Dad Gooch's house
Saturday:  Leftovers from Christmas Eve party

Don't forget to head over to to see what others have planned for the week.
