Sunday — roast chicken (shred 2 cups for Tuesday), cornbread stuffing, and fresh kale or turnip greens*
Monday — Spaghetti Squash with basil pesto (purchase a tub)**, Texas toast (frozen), and tossed green salad
Tuesday — chicken tacos with the works***
Wednesday — pasta with meat sauce****, baby spinach salad with mushrooms
Thursday — fish fillets with sesame seeds*****, rice, and fresh asparagus
Friday — grilled or broiled pork tenderloin and peach halves******, heat-and-serve polenta (purchase tube), and sugar snap peas
Saturday — lamb chops, marmalade sweet potatoes*******, and broccoli
*Vitamin-packed kale and turnip greens are also a great source of nondairy calcium. Buy 1 1/2 lb to serve 4. Cook as you would spinach.
**Prick squash all over.Boil 35 minutes or until tender. Cut in half, discard seeds. Loosen strands with a fork; toss with pesto sprinkle with grated cheese.
***Moisten shredded cooked chicken (from Sunday) with canned taco sauce.
Heat; spoon into warm taco shells. Serve with chopped avocado, tomato, onion and sour cream, shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese and more taco sauce.
****Brown 12 oz lean ground beef and 2 tsp minced garlic in 1 Tbsp oil. Add a 15-oz jar spaghetti sauce; simmer 15 minutes.
Serve over hot pasta with grated Parmesan cheese.
*****Dip fish in beaten egg white, then in sesame seeds to coat. Panfry in a nonstick skillet coated with nonstick spray, turning once, until cooked through.
******Stir mustard into bottled duck sauce or apricot basting sauce. Brush on tenderloin and peach halves during grilling or broiling.
*******Cut peeled sweet potatoes into bite-size pieces.Cook in water to cover 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and stir in 1 Tbsp each butter and orange marmalade.
