Menu Plan Monday- Oct.26th, 08

So last week was far from disastrous, but we were flexible because Edwin got sick with Vertigo! We had our cheese soup and garlic sausage spaghetti, but that's all I cooked for the week. Edwin's diet consisted of chicken noodle soup! At least I dont have to get much from the store for this week!

Sunday- Garlic pepper pork chops with corn on the cob and broccoli. 
Monday- Rigatoni pasta in a lemon cream sauce topped with sausage(shout out to the food network), and pumpkin pie spice balls.
Tuesday-Homemade chicken and dumplings (first attempt. I"m going to Jessica's house during the day to learn how to cook them!)
Wednesday- Kid's choice. Tuna salad sandwiches for Edwin and I (we didn't have it last week)
Thursday- Lemon Chicken with potato parmesan treasure coins 
Friday- If you can find it, eat it! Probably bbq chicken wings (frozen freezer section, but they're so yum!), then we're off to our halloween festivities! 
Saturday- Saturday night date night please! (plug for Edwin) haha
Dessert- Cookie doggie bones
Doggie bones-¾ sugar, ½ melted shortening, 2 eggs, beaten, 1 ts. Vanilla, 2 cups flour, 2 ts. Baking powder, ½ ts. Salt

blend sugar with shortening. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Sift together in another bowl; flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the eggs and shortening mixture. Mix well and chill until its easy to handle. Place the dough on a lightly floured piece of waxed paper. Roll to 1/8 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter or shape into dog bones with a knife. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Ice with frosting if desired.

Add several potato rounds to the bag at a time; and shake to coat potatoes. Place potatoes on top of butter in baking pan. Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Turn potatoes over and sprinkle with italian seasoning. Bake another 30 minutes. 

Lemon cream sauce (to top any pasta)- 1 T garlic, 1 T oil, 2 cups heavy whipping cream, zest of 2 lemons, juice of 2 lemons, 1 ts. pepper, 2 ts. salt

Stir and simmer all ingredients. Top pasta, and top with cheese! 

Pumpkin pie spice balls - ¼ cup sugar (or colored sugar for seasonal décor!), ½ ts. Pumpkin pie spice, 1 11.5 ounce refriegerated breadsticks
