On the Menu 4th Week Of February

Need dinner ideas? I have a week’s worth of scrumptious dinner menu and other must-make delicious recipes, too! Main dish recipes, side dishes, soups, bread recipes, salad recipes, and lots of yummy desserts. Here’s what’s on the menu this week…

This week on the Weekly Wednesday Wishlist, I posted a very easy recipe for Savory And Sweet Air Fryer Salmon. Oh my, it was delicious. The recipe calls for baking it skin side up, but I baked it skin side down, and it was crispy on the outside and perfectly done on the inside. I hope you will give it a try! And if you don’t have an air fryer, think about getting one. Everything I cook in it comes out amazing.

This week’s menu plan is a real winner, with lots of seasonal flavors and a scrumptious sweet treat! Creative dishes that have been tested and approved by hungry families like mine! Let’s see what’s on the menu this week…

I love warm and comforting food like soups and stews! They make our whole home smell scrumptious! On the menu this week are delicious comfort foods that are just perfect to cook and eat this time of year!

 Monday- Slow Cooker Soup Day

We love chili! And this week, it’s on the menu. This White Chicken Chili is the most popular soup on the blog! No wonder it’s easy to make and has a creamy Tex-Mex flavor. It’s supposed to rain all weekend here, so I’m making this soup on Saturday, and we will eat it again on Monday. It’s that tasty!

I serve the chili with lots of toppings like tortilla chips, avocado slices, sharp cheddar cheese, and a big squeeze of lime. White Chicken Chili is a must-try.

I think I’ll make these for lunch on Sunday when my kids and grandchildren come for lunch! I love the idea of wrapping crescent rolls around chicken! So fun and YUMMY! And such an easy and fast meal! They will love this chicken, too! So far, Monday’s soup and today’s Parmesan Chicken Rolls are just too delicious to wait!

I’m serving the rolls with a delicious chopped salad with tiny ditalini pasta, bacon, and feta. The greens are chopped, and then everything is dressed with a Parmesan dressing with a sweet twist. YUM!

From a new-to-me blog, Written Reality! I’m so glad I found this recipe on Pinterest!


LOVE the name of tonight’s featured main dish blog! Foodness Gracious, doesn’t that just about say it all?

I’m a huge fan of pan-fried cod! It’s such a beautiful fish. Light and flaky and loves to be swimming in a sauce like the citrus basil sauce that is glorious! This is another meal that does not take a lot of time and is fuss-free! It’s easy enough for a weeknight but is so company-worthy.

Tonight’s cod is paired with a delicious Israeli couscous infused with garlic and roasted broccoli, sharing the garlic flavor with the addition of lemon. I think this menu is a synergistic delight!

Bobby will be a very happy boy when he comes home tonight and sees this amazing pasta dinner from Julia’s Album because pasta is Bobby’ love language. This is such a scrumptious recipe. The homemade sun-dried tomato sauce is easy to make and creates a creamy base for the chicken and pasta.

Creamy food pairs best with something that has acid in it. It’s all about balance! So I’m making my favorite salad that has a lemon vinaigrette.

I’m so excited about tonight’s main dish. I’ve eaten it for as long as I can remember. It’s what I call a heritage recipe. My Nani made it, and my Mom made it, too. And I’m sure my great-grandmother and her mother made it before her. Sauteed Chicken is such an easy-peasy recipe, and it’s so comforting and delicious.

This is a very old post that I have not updated in almost a decade. However, the recipe is one you will want to make! Nani’s Sauteed Chicken might be your family’s next favorite!

I make this with mashed potatoes because the delicious sauce the chicken simmers in is a perfect match for potatoes. And the asparagus recipe is old too, but very good!




My son’s favorite dish is Shepherd’s Pie. He first ate it on a hunting trip in Vermont when he was 13 and has loved it ever since. I don’t make it often, but it is perfect for a cold weekend meal.

I’ll make double mashed potatoes (from yesterday’s menu) and use them to top the Shepherd’s Pie.

This recipe calls for peas, and I don’t eat peas. But the rest of my family loves them. So, instead of picking all those horrid little peas out, I’ll leave a corner of the casserole pea-free and take a scoop from there. If you make this dish for non-pea eaters, corn works as a substitute.

Shepherd’s Pie is another very old recipe, but a goodie!



I’ve made this scrumptious pork chop dinner before and LOVED it so much I’m making it for Sunday dinner with the family. Just writing about them is making my mouth water. I agree with Kris And Wesley. Buy center-cut, bone-in chops for the best flavor.

I think meat is often all about the sauce! Sauces make everything taste better. This sauce has wonderful aromatic flavors, plus heavy cream. Heavenly!

Treat Of The Week

I love desserts you can make by doctoring the box! The cake mix box! And I know any recipe from On Sutton Place will be delicious. So I call these cake mix cookie bars a huge win/win… and scrumptious, too!

    These recipes look wonderful and I am going to try them. I was wondering if you have any recipes for two?

    1. Hi Patricia, I don’t because when I make dinner for just Bobby and me I love leftovers for lunches. I also freeze them have a an easy dinner when I don’t feel like cooking.
