~YUM~ (My weekly menu).. and the bread lady

Menu for the week:
*Golden Chicken w/ Noodles (Crock pot), salad
*Baked Fusilli w/ Italian Sausage, garlicky broccoli and cauliflower
Oven Fried Chicken Fingers, Green Beans, Roasted Red Potatoes
Cheese ravioli, salad, garlic bread
Pork Chops (BBQ), baked beans and cole slaw

The items with (*) are recipes from some cookbooks that I have. If they turn out good I'll post the recipe! When I plan a menu for the week (which I have gotten out of the habit of doing) I usually only plan 5 meals because the other are nights (usually church nights) when we just eat a sandwhich or left overs. Occasionally we might go out to eat but that's rare!

~Update- I saved this menu this morning before I went to the grocery store. The second item, which is from a Paula Deen magazine has been changed to 'Baked Rigate w/ Italian Sausage'. Even my beloved Publix didn't have fusilli pasta! Oh and I added garlic bread to the cheese ravioli because the lady at the bakery pressured me into another loaf. ;) Sometimes I just can't help myself. It didn't help that she gave Luke a cookie right before she went into her bread spill. Let's give the kid a cookie and maybe his mom will buy some bread! I don't think she remembered me from just 2 days ago!

Do you ever watch Paula Deen? She was in Birmingham recently dining at a place called "The Local". Pretty neat!
