Meal Plan Monday - 11/3/08

We have a lot of carry over from last week. Claron worked late and I was working on Eliza's costume. Also, we ate a lot of leftovers from the fridge. Hopefully, we'll stay on target more this week.

Mon. – Creamy Chicken Casserole with Biscuits and Garlic & Shallot Green Beans

Tues. – Obama's Chili, Cornbread and Apple Cake (recipe below)

Weds. – Eat Out

Thurs. – Honey Glazed Chicken, Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Roasted Acorn Squash

Fri. – Leftovers

Sat. – Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry with Basmati Rice and Naan

Sun. – Homemade Pasta with Italian Sausage and Tomato Basil Sauce (with basil from my garden)

Apple Cake
6 apples
1 tablespoon cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
2 3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a tube pan. Peel, core and chop apples into chunks. Toss with cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together oil, orange juice, sugar and vanilla. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ones, then add eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the bowl to ensure all ingredients are incorporated.
Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread half of apples over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a tester comes out clean.
