Day 1: Shrimp with Capers, Lemon, and Feta on Orzo

Total time: 25 minutes 
  Shrimp with a Mediterranean flavor: capers, lemon, feta, black olives, served on a bed of herbed orzo.

Day 2: Braised Veal with Garlic  

Total time: 60 minutes 
     Mediterranean cuisine uses a lot of garlic.  The Spanish like it raw, rubbed on bread.  The French like it whole, cooked to a beautiful, smooth creamy purée, which is what we are doing here.  I peeled the garlic cloves... but it's really not necessary.  Just pinch the cooked garlic out of the skin to eat.. As is so often the case, this will be enough for 4 persons or 2 meals.

Day 3: Sausage and Spinach Lasagne

Total time: 50 minutes
    This is a hearty lasagne, a bit more familiar, but with a few flavor twists: fresh spinach, sausage and a bit of green pepper.  Using no-cook noodles makes it all easy.

Day 4: Turkey Cutlets with Sherry and Almonds

Total time: 15 minutes
     Much more economical than the traditional veal cutlets, breaded turkey with a light sherry and almond sauce is an impressive, but simple dish.

Day 5:  Braised Savory Pork Chops

Total time: 30 minutes
     There are a lot of intense flavors in the sauce for these chops; best served with simple side dishes.  The sauce is reduced at the end, to thicken slightly.

Day 6: Egg Fu Yung (Chinese Pancakes with Cabbage & Brown Rice)

Total time: 35 minutes 
    If you cook the rice with water or vegetable stock, you have a lovely vegetarian main course.  The rice adds 'substance' to the egg although you really can't tell that it's there.  The cabbage retains just enough crunch.  They go together quickly if the rice is cooked in advance.
