Main Course Menu Plan: Week 11  Fall I

Day 1: Salmon, Smoked Salmon and Spinach Risotto

Total time: 30 minutes
    The smoked salmon lends a dinner party note to this risotto; the melted goat cheese makes it incredibly creamy.

Day 2: Lamb Chops with White Beans

Total time: 30 minutes
      Some people always serve mint sauce with lamb.  I prefer lentils or white beans.   You can substitute Pork Chops, if you prefer, just cook a bit longer, although even pork can be faintly pink inside...

Day 3: Mushroom, Pimento and Chicken Lasagne

Total time: 50 minutes
   A layer of sautéed mushrooms, a layer of crushed tomatoes and one of shredded chicken and sliced red peppers makes this is a colorful lasagne with surprise flavors in each bite.

Day 4: Spinach Burgers with Mushroom Sauce

Total time: 30 minutes
     Don't let the greenish tinge to these burgers put you off.  They fry up to a lovely dark, proper burger color, they taste fantastic and you get a healthy dose of vegetables almost without noticing!

Day 5:  Pork Chops with Ginger Caper Sauce

Total time: 30 minutes
   Fry the chops, then kept warm while the sauce is quickly made. Remember, slightly pink pork is okay, and keeps it tender and moist.

Day 6: Stir-fried Sesame Chicken

Total time: 30 minutes
    Peanut butter adds a creaminess to stir fries, as well as a subtle, almost sesame flavor.  The finish of toasted sesame seeds carries the flavor through.  You can buy toasted sesame seeds or toast them yourself in minutes.
