Menu Plan Monday #14

Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Laura at Organizing Junkie.

In reviewing last week’s recipes, I would have to give five stars to the Deep Dish Ham Pie. Absolutely none of it made it to left-over status. We liked the Chicken Paprikash, but since ours is a low-sodium household, we doubled the powdered spices to make up for the salt. We doubled the spices in the Chunky Potato Soup, too. The Cherry Pork Chops were excellent, but the hubby says he wants them with real cherry pie filling next time, not the light variety.

Monday: The hubby has a meeting, so I will probably have some good, old-fashioned grilled cheese with tomato soup.

Tuesday: Turkey Enchiladas from this recipe

Wednesday: Crockpot Parmesan Chicken

Thursday: Warm Tuna Pita Pockets

Friday: Lemon Herb Roasted Salmon

Saturday: Herbed Pork Tenderloin*(Am. Heart Assoc., recipe below)

Sunday: Carry-in dinner at church

Herbed Pork Tenderloin

1 lb. pork tenderloin, all visible fat and silver skin discarded

1/2 c. fat free or light salad dressing

2 t. dried oregano, crumbled

1 t. grated lemon zest

vegetable oil spray

1/4 t. dried rosemary, crushed, or dried tarragon, crumbled

1/4 t. pepper

1/4 t. paprika

In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine pork, salad dressing, oregano and lemon zest. Seal bag. Turn bag to coat pork completely. Refrigerate for 8-12 hours, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 435. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray foil with vegetable spray.

Remove pork from marinade. Most of marinade will adhere to pork; don’t scrape it off. Discard any marinade still in the bag. Put pork on baking sheet. Sprinkle pork with rosemary, pepper and paprika. Tuck thinner end of pork under for even cooking.

Bake for 24 minutes or until internal temperature of pork measures 155 F and it’s barely pink in the center. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

    I’m glad he liked it. Did you ever try the Asian Crockpot?
