Menu Plan Monday


It has been MONTHS since I’ve done this on my blog.  I belong to a message board for families with lots of kids and I usually try to post a weekly plan there.  Sometimes I stick to it and sometimes it goes right out the window.  I’m hoping by getting back into regular posting here, I will get better at true meal planning.
This week we don’t have a lot of options, most of what is in the freezer is chicken, so my challenge is to cook chicken in different ways that my family will eat without all of us getting completely burned out on chicken in general.
Monday…Easy Burritos with homemade tortillas
Tuesday…Chicken and Rice Stir Fry
Wednesday…Spaghetti with Italian sausage
Thursday…baked chicken and baked potato
Friday…Cheese Enchiladas (looking for a recipe for homemade corn tortillas)
Saturday…homemade chicken strips
Sunday…Chicken Parmesan

We will all be home during the day too, so I've got some tentative ideas for lunches, but no particular day planned for them.  On the other days we will eat leftovers or we may even resort to peanut butter and jelly.

Red Beans and Rice w/Cajun sausage
leftover Penne pasta casserole from last week

omg do you know what I thought of when I saw this? Remember that nursery rhyme about the pie placed before the king... "when the pie was opened the birds began to sing..." LOL I've been hanging out with my grandkids too long! ROFL... Have a great day!
