I steamed the broccoli and chopped it up, chopped up the parsley and stirred all of it into the cooked pasta (we used penne). I also added garlic salt, butter and olive oil. The salad was our standard baby spinach, dried cranberries and croutons.

We didn’t have this meal, for some reason I just didn’t want it!
The chicken and rice were left over from Sunday. So you will heat them both in a skillet, add a couple beaten eggs, allow to cook. Then add stir-fry sauce, and scallions if you wish.

Spread marinara sauce (I always have this on hand) onto Naan, top with cheese, peppers and artichoke hearts. Bake for 8 minutes at 450.

These were GREAT! And so easy.

Seasoned bread crumbs: I had
Potato au gratin mix:         1.00

Coat steaks in mustard, then dredge in bread crumbs. Pan fry in oil until done to your liking.

These were actually really good; I was a little scared about the Dijon mustard. But I really enjoyed the taste, and the crispy breadcrumbs made it even better.
