It is time again for the weekly menu update. My goal is to get this list up on sunday nights and also to have my shopping for the week done on sundays. Unfortunately that did not happen last night. The menu for this week is...
Monday: Left overs from eating out this weekend.
Tuesday: Our favorite pasta/ easy pasta
2 cups of macaroni pasta
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves of garlic minced
3-4 roma tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup of chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup of cubed fresh mozzarella cheese
Cook the pasta according to the directions. While the pasta is cooking
in a skillet heat olive oil put in minced garlic and cook until fragrent.
Add the chopped tomatoes to olive oil and cook until soft, about 5
minutes. Drain the pasta and add to the skillet. Add basil and cheese.
I always play around with the measurements. I like alot of garlic so I
put in more garlic. If you like more of anything in there like cheese or
basil add it. You can't go wrong. Enjoy!
Wednesday: Dinner with the gates
Thursday: Chicken Cordon Blu with broccoli
Here's a new way to cook broccoli.
1 cup of frozen broccoli
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove of garlic (minced)
pinch of red pepper flakes
handful of fresh parmesan cheese (however much you like)
Heat olive oil in a skillet at medium high heat. Add minced garlic
and red pepper flakes. Once the oil is fragrant add frozen broccoli.
Cover and stir occasionally. Cook until broccoli is done (usually
about 5 minutes). Once the broccoli is done sprinkle with desired
amount of parmesan cheese.
Friday, Saturday, & Sunday: College Station for first game of the season!
