Something beefy to elevate your Tuesday: We like the economy, flavor, and tenderness of chuck steak, but sirloin or any other boneless steak, pounded thin, is excellent, too.

WEDNESDAY: Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

We consider this a deluxe version of everyone's favorite baked pasta -- because bacon makes everything better! And because it has Gouda for sheer cheesiness, Gruyere for sophistication, and Parmesan, well, just because.... This one-pot wonder has wide appeal. It's bound to be gobbled up by everyone from the youngest to the oldest at your table.
