Mix together roll into small balls and freeze.

Sunday –
Grilled Chicken with Nectarine Chutney (I use chicken breast tenders so I don’t have to pound them and half the curry powder it calls for) http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/reviews/Grilled-Chicken-Palliards-with-Nectarine-Chutney-105216
Steamed basmati white rice
Steamed green beans

Sausage and kale pasta (ok – is this not perfect for a “what’s in my pantry dinner”? I always have frozen chicken sausage or turkey sausage in my freezer and if you haven’t noticed kale stays well in the fridge for 2-3 weeks!)

Tuesday –
Thai salmon with coconut milk and vegetables http://www.dinneralovestory.com/salmon-for-people-who-are-sick-of-salmon/
Steamed brown rice

Wednesday –
Cutting board dinner http://livingwell7.typepad.com/blog/2010/03/cutting-board-dinners.html (not sure if we are going Italian or French…) Our kids love this – so fun!

Thursday –
Chicken lettuce wraps (so good – make them if you haven’t tried it yet!) http://overcocktails.blogspot.com/2009/10/healthy-lettuce-wraps.html
Asparagus with soy and butter – http://overcocktails.blogspot.com/2009/04/asparagus-has-arrived.html
Cabbage with hot sauce (we use siracha instead of sambal)  http://orangette.blogspot.com/2009/01/best-we-can-hope-for.html  

Friday – out

Lemon Rosemary grilled halibut (anyone can make this- I promise! I marinate for 2 hours – don’t forget to sprinkle with salt/pepper before putting on the grill or serving) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/lemon-rosemary-marinated-grilled-halibut-recipe/index.html
Grilled ciabatta bread (cut into 1 inch slices, brush both sides with olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper– put directly on the BBQ and turn after 1-2 minutes then rub with a garlic clove)
Grilled Caesar salad (been obsessed with throwing the big romaine leaves right on the BBQ until they have some grill marks, throwing them on a platter then drizzling with this yummy healthy dressing
Healthy Caesar recipe (stays well in fridge for 2 weeks)
5 garlic cloves minced
1tbls Dijon mustard
3 dashes Worcestershire
3 dashes tobasco
2 tsp anchovy paste (optional)
Salt to taste
Good amount of fresh pepper
2 Lemons squeezed
½ cup olive oil
**Food process together
