Can’t think of any meals for the week?

Maybe a few of you have some suggestions because i always come home from the store with the same things. I’m not too picky, as long as the dish has a good amount of meat in it. And i don’t mind cooking meals that are worth the quality. Any suggestions?

Here are some things I have cooked in the last couple weeks
maybe it will give you an idea.

grilled pork chops, grilled zucchini with onions,
minute steaks, egg plant au gratin
baked orange roughy, fried potatoes, aspargus
homemade chicken pot pie
chinese cheeseburgers
smoked sausage
mexican layer dip (its a meal)

This is so good, I use broccoli instead of mixed vege.

CHICKEN POT PIE

1 can veg-all mixed vegetables
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1 or 2 large chicken breast cut into chunks
salt and pepper to taste
2 9-inch deep dish unbaked pie crust

Saute chicken in 2 tablespoons olive oil for about 3 minute until light brown, add chicken to the first 4 ingredients.
Mix together and pour into pie crust. Put top crust on pie, cut 4 slits in the crust. Brush with beaten egg wash.

Bake on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 45 minutes

    This is a great family meal:

    Beef and Noodle Casserole

    2 cups cooked egg noodles
    1 pound ground beef
    1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced
    salt and pepper
    1 package (4 oz.) cream cheese, softened
    1 cup sour cream
    2 green onions, chopped
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Spread cooked noodles in the bottom of a medium casserole dish (2 quart).

    In a frying pan brown ground beef and garlic. Drain and discard fat.

    Add tomato sauce to the meat, heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Pour meat mixture over the noodles in casserole dish.
    In a small bowl combine the cream cheese with the sour cream and mix until smooth. Stir in green onions. Spread over meat mixture.

    Sprinkle cheddar cheese over top of the cream cheese.

    Bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes. (About 4 servings.)

    Though, this one is my favorite:

    Chicken-Fried Steak with Gravy
    2 pounds round steak, trimmed of fat
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1 cup buttermilk
    Vegetable oil for frying
    Gravy (recipe follows)

    Cut steak into serving pieces. Tenderize and pound to 1/4-inch thickness with mallet.

    Place buttermilk in a shallow bowl and set aside.

    Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a bag (or shallow bowl), mixing well. Add the steak and shake well to coat evenly. Remove steak, shaking off excess flour. Dip steak into buttermilk, coating both sides, allow excess to drip off. Place back into flour mixture, tossing to coat well. Remove from flour mixture, shake excess off and chill for 15 minutes before frying.

    Heat 1/4 to 1/2-inch oil to medium-high heat in large frying pan. Fry until brown on both sides. Set aside and keep warm while gravy is prepared.

    Gravy

    2 tablespoons reserved pan drippings
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    3 cups milk, warmed
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Heat dripping in frying pan and melt the butter. Add flour, cook and stir for 1 minute. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until thickened. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Serve ladled over the steak.

    Well since I am a vegetarian you would not like the meals I eat so if I were to give you some suggestions you would say yuck to them but I am going to try. I usually have a bagel with cream cheese for lunch but you could easily replace the cream cheese with salami, that use to be my favorite, and you could have some chips and a diet soda. For dinner I usually have a grape leaf hummus sandwich wrap but you should really give it a try. Sorry I couldnt give you better ones.
