ON THE MENU WEEK OF JAN 28TH
January is almost over! Cooking with foods of the season is one of life’s great joys! In season everything tastes better! This week I’m featuring lots of warm winter-inspired recipes and flavors! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…

Today’s main dish brings up so many beautiful memories of my Nani! I can still smell how this scrumptious dish wafted through her little home and made me feel so safe and cozy!
It’s peasant cooking at its best!
If you make one thing on the menu this week Nani’s Sauteed Chicken should be it! I know it will become a family favorite!
- NANI’S SAUTEED CHICKEN
- MASHED POTATOES
- PERFECTLY ROASTED ASPARAGUS
TUESDAY- SOUP DAY
I think this soup is so light! Lemon, chicken and, orzo. What a winning combination! I love soup no matter what time of year. But we especially love soup in the winter.
This soup looks so pretty too! Thanks, Closet Kitchen for the soup!
Yum! I love all things salmon! I’ve made salmon in every which way but have never made it into croquettes. These little gems sound so amazing! You can find this recipe at The Pickled Plum.
- SALMON CROQUETTES
- GARLIC FRIED RICE
- ARUGULA SALAD WITH SHAVED PARMESAN, TOASTED PINENUTS IN A LEMON VINAIGRETTE
I adore scallops! And so does Bobby! But one serving (about 6 diver’s scallops) is just not enough for him. So, I make a serving for four and he eats three of them!
Honey, I don’t blame you! They are that good! Just look at these divine scallops from The Recipe Critic!
Friday nights are fun nights at StoneGable. We are expecting company so my sweet little Emma Kate will love these pizza roll-ups she can dip in marinara sauce. She loves “dippy food”!
And because Abigail is gluten free I’ll make two pizza roll-ups. One with regular pizza and one gluten-free! I hope there will be leftovers for lunch on Saturday!
SATURDAY- FAMILY DINNER
I love food with the words “French onion” in them! And when they are “stuffed” even better! I can’t wait to make this delicious pork loin for family who is coming in for the weekend!
Thanks, Natasha from Salt and Lavender!
SUNDAY- SUNDAY DINNER
I love to have the ingredients to make easy and delicious meals like tonight’s dinner! And who doesn’t love bacon! Instead of using heavy cream, I’ll use a one to one ratio of evaporated milk and Greek yogurt to keep the calorie count down.
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK
I made these Banana Bread Scones earlier this month and I was amazed how delicious overripe bananas can be! So if you are tired of using your overripe bananas to make bananas try this recipe and make scones.
HERE ARE A FEW OTHER REICPE TO TRY…
ANOTHER DELICIOUS WINTERY SOUP
THIS TREAT REMINDS ME OF SPRING
A HEATHY AND WW FRIENDLY TEX MEX SOUP
Have a scrumptious week, friend!
The salmon recipe looks delicious. I will be fixing that tonight – it’s a good way to use up my fresh rosemary and thyme, as well as my Trader Joe’s ghee. I don’t like buying a lot of fresh herbs for just one recipe and then have to discard them. I do wash herbs and then wrap them in paper towels and store in ziplock bags. They keep for about 2 weeks that way. Up next will definitely be the lemon chicken soup. It’s been on my recipe “to do” list for a while now.
That’s how I save my herbs too. I just got basil, thyme, and rosemary in little pots and I’m keeping them in a sunny spot in my kitchen. Hopefully, I’ll transplant them to bigger pots to grow all summer long.
OOOH! I just brought some fresh scallops back from St. George Island, FL and can’t wait to use this recipe! This weeks menu looks yummy. I loved your analogy of getting a dog when you were talking about decorating style! After record breaking rain, we are finally getting sunshine and warm weather. The trees are full of blooms and the birds are singing! God is wonderful!
I very much look forward to your menu plans each week. We have similar taste in food; delicious, simple and nutritious!
I’m only sorry that I have waited so long to try Nani’s chicken. It is outstanding! It is what I think of as “supper” food, comforting and so easy that I can easily make it without even having to reference the recipe next time! I served it over brown rice, and my husband and I both loved it.
Definitely going into my meal rotation!
So glad you like Nani’s chicken recipe. She is looking down from heaven and smiling!!! Thanks!
This creamy garlic chicken sounds delicious. I used a lot of the split chicken breasts and this recipe sounds like one’d like served over some whole wheat pasta. The sauteed scallops look very appetizing. We love scallops! I could maybe eat 5!
I’m glad you are finding recipes you want to make Barbara.
Planning to try this chicken recipe tonight, as already took out chicken breasts to thaw. Sounds much better than my plan. Thank you. Enjoy your visit with your sweet family this weekend.
I do especially enjoy your menu posts….however, there are so many ads and pop ups I can hardly find the recipes. It would be great if you would cut back big time on adds.
It sure would make your posts more enjoyable and usable.
Made a big pot of your loaded potato soup yesterday and will be having it for tonight’s meal. Our temperatures here in N.C. were in the teens this morning when I got up so definitely soup weather. I find all your menu recipes that I have tried to be delicious and look forward to more. Have a good last weekend of Jan. I found some blooms on my Hellebores the other day so Spring is coming?
