Menu: Week of January 17-23

For Menu Plan Explanation, click here.

Monday: Macaroni and Cheese - you'll never buy the boxed kind again!
Tuesday: Chicken and Pears over Arugula - something light after that mac and cheese!
Wednesday: Spicy Tuscan Soup and Butter Rolls- this recipe promises to be better than the Zuppa at Olive Garden
Thursday: Leftover/Takeout Night
Friday: Pizza Bread with Marinara Sauce - a favorite from my childhood
Saturday: Lemon Chicken - a new twist on chicken and rice
Sunday: Braciole - I've been wanting to make this ever since I saw that Everybody Loves Raymond episode
Family Night Treat: Apple Cinnamon Bread - Chunks of apple, streusel topping, yummy!

Sounds great, huh? Let's get shopping!
