Menu Week 59

Do you use fresh parmesan cheese or the stuff in the green can?Okay, so I always use the stuff in the green can. But a few weeks ago I bought a chunk of fresh parm from Sam's Club. Now I don't really know what to use it in. I know there are a million recipes out there that I thought have looked good, but i haven't tried them because I didn't have any fresh parmesan (and I was too cheap to go buy some). Do you have any favorite recipes with fresh parmesan cheese in it that I should try?

Anyway...Here's my menu for this week:

Monday: honey lime enchiladas, trying pork this time

Tuesday: turkey meatballs, maybe w/sweet and sour sauce and rice

Wednesday: chicken rolls, rice a roni

Thursday: Chicken Taco Cornbread Wedges with Ranchero Cilantro Drizzle

Friday: tinfoil dinners if I ever go get a full propane tank, if not, then we'll have tortellini w/some kind of sauce and fresh parmesan cheese

Saturday: eat out

Sunday: crockpot chicken stroganoff

Have a good one. Don't forget to post your menus this week and your parmesan cheese favorites. Thanks!


  1. Alfredo Sauce is best with fresh parmesan. Once you start using fresh (especially in Lasagna) it's hard to go back to the dry. Oh and on top of soups. Mmmmmm
    I enjoy your menus!
    Thnx, Sharon

  2. Yes, I also use it for Fetuccine Alfredo. Very yummy!

  3. I made this recipe for last Valentine's Day. I'm sure it would be fabulous with fresh parm.

  4. I'm such a slacker this week on planning a menu. I got as far as planning lasagna and fajitas and then said forget it! We are going to be gone for most of the week so we may end up with mac & cheese with hot dogs just to save us from having left overs in the fridge while we are gone.

    You have posted those honey lime enchiladas a few times so I may actually have to make them when we get back next week.

  5. oh your menu this week is making me drool.
    monday: turkey tacos' and fresh salsa
    tuesday: flank steak with mushroom cream sauce and rice
    wednesday: honey lime chicken on corn pancakes
    thursday:chicken alfredo
    friday: a new recipe from somewhere. hmmmmm?
    saturday: out
    sunday: roast and patata's

  6. I use to watch Good things utah and now I have switched to watching studio 5. The other day they share this:


  7. Thanks everyone for the recipe ideas!

  8. Hey Jen, I always use fresh for every pasta thing I make... you wrap it up well in plastic wrap and aluminum foil in the fridge and it will last for weeks and weeks... it tastes way better and turns out to be cheaper than buying that other stuff because it lasts so long!
