Menu Time 2.6.11

Here's the menu for the coming week:

* Beef Stroganoff (remaining from last week's menu)
* Tuna-Pasta Casserole (new recipe from Eat Better America)
* Creamy Chicken Enchiladas (another new recipe from Eat Better America)

I seem to on average only be cooking three planned meals per week, so I see no need for more than that.  We usually end up improvising with quick meals or eating separately once or twice per week.

And here are my ratings of last week's recipes:

* Broiled Parmesan Tilapia - The tilapia came out yummy, as usual.  As for the rest of the meal, well...I was not thinking and just made plain brown rice with no seasoning (boring!) and then I steamed broccoli as a veggie but I'm never sure what to put on steamed broccoli to flavor it so that was bland too.  So 2/3 of the meal was bland.  So overall it wasn't exactly a stellar meal.  Oh well.
* Spinach-Ricotta Skillet Lasagna - This was pretty yummy.  I think I'll make it again. :)
* Homemade chicken nuggets - These were ok-tasting, and they had broccoli as part of the breading which is obviously a big bonus health-wise.  However, I didn't really enjoy the breading process.  I'm not really a fan of making anything that has to be breaded, so I don't know why I thought this would be different.  I just always end up covered in egg and the pieces of chicken (or whatever I'm breading) always end up naked in the skillet surrounded by a sea of breading crumbs.  Although I did get some pieces of chicken to stay covered for this meal, I still ended up covered in egg, and there were still tons of breading crumbs loose in the skillet.  So I'm thinking this will not be a repeat recipe.  Not because it wasn't good, but because I'm just not a good breader.
