Food Friday: Meal plan week of Feb 23rd

Hello my friends, our winter thaw is over and the snow is back :(
But it was nice while it lasted. Today is cold and sunny can't really complain about that considering it's still February & winter.
Here's this weeks meal plan ideas:
Monday - Hoisin Pork
I would serve this with Basmati rice and use pork instead of chicken.
Wednesday - Cornflake Tilapia
4 tilapia fillets
2 cups corn flake crumbs
1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/3 of a palmful
1/2 tablespoon ground coriander, half a palmful
1/2 tablespoon paprika, half a palmful
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
-In a shallow dish combine corn flake crumbs, dry mustard, coriander and paprika. Season tilapia fillets with salt and pepper, then coat them thoroughly in the seasoned corn flake crumbs.
-Preheat a large non-stick skillet with 2 turns of the pan of olive oil, about 2 tablespoons, over medium-high heat.
-Once the oil starts to ripple, add the tilapia and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
-Serve with choice of sidedish
Thursday - Shake-n-Bake chicken with Broccoli Salad
Friday - Fricatelli
3 cups cooked rice
1 medium chopped onion
1/2 lb sausage, browned
1 can tomatoe soup
Cheddar Cheese shredded
Pepper to taste

-Cook the sausage (drain fat if necessary, I usually boil mine first)
-Add onions and fry with sausage.
-Then add rice and tomatoe soup, once its heated through, add cheese.
-Mix well and sprinkle pepper on top.
Easy and YUMMY!!

The Tilapia sounds wonderful, if only Jamie liked fish!
