Menu Plan Monday-Sept 15

Since it's been a while since I shared our family meal plan (I always have one, but I've not been very good about posting it), and things have been pretty uneventful in our home, I thought I would post our very uneventful menu for the week....I guess "uneventful" has been the theme of our house for the past couple of days. :-)

Monday--Rosemary Chicken w/couscous and steamed broccoli
Tuesday--Sesame Beef Stir-Fry
Wednesday--Potstickers (does it impress you that I'll be making them from scratch?)
Thursday--Bourbon Chicken w/jasmine rice and edemame (this has become a favorite of ours)
Friday--Leftover Bourbon Chicken
Saturday--Leftover Potstickers
Sunday--"whatever you can find in the fridge"

Please let me come over for dinner on Wednesday. Please, please, please? I have been craving potstickers. I actually want to go to China for some truly authentic ones, but I don't see that in the cards. Do you have a recipe you could link me to? Thanks!

Sure, Meghan, you are *more* than welcome to come for's only a 26 hour drive. ;-)

Funny you should ask about a recipe. A friend of mine, who is Chinese, gave me a tutorial a couple of weeks ago. And while I wrote EVERYTHING down, she didn't have *exact* measurements for the seasonings, oil, etc (soooo not the way that I cook--I need specifics). I hope that she will be able to help me again, so that I can put together a bit more exact recipe. :-) I'll send you what I have after Wednesday. :-)

I knew that you like to have specifics. You're the recipe queen, and I definitely benefit from it. The best nights this week are definitely the bourbon chicken (I loved it when you made it for me) and edamame, our favorite! Why don't you do the leftover potstickers on Thursday and the bourbon chicken on friday? Is it better not to cook on the weekends? Just curious.
