Chicken tostadas (this recipe is so good and easy – I make the sauce and then mix it with chicken breasts I had baked then shredded or rotisserie chicken and then whatever toppings we already have on hand – usually lettuce, black beans and corn tortillas I keep in the freezer) http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/bestof/toprecipes/bestchickenrecipes/recipes/food/views/Chicken-Tostadas-242826  

Monday –
Easy Sole Meuniere (I use ½ the butter it calls for) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/easy-sole-meuniere-recipe/index.html
Cannellini beans (canned white beans) w/ rosemary & olive oil
1. 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil in a sauté pan w/ a whole rosemary sprig (from the garden) – heat for 2 minutes
2. then add cannellini beans that have been washed/strained and warm for 3-5 minutes
3. then sprinkle with s/p and take sprig out– I am addicted. Don’t over warm the beans or they will be mushy!
