~Menu Plan Monday~

I think this is the 6th week I am doing the menu plan Monday, hosted by Organizing Junkie. The best thing about this meme and the slow cooker Thursday meme is the enormous amount of recipes I am accumulating. It is so exciting (I guess I need to get a life :o) . I am going to try a few new recipes this week and am listing them. I am hoping that I can reference where I found them, thank you to everyone in advance... I did make a couple of good things this weekend. I tried Sandra's breakfast crock pot casserole. It was great to wake up Saturday morning to breakfast ready! I also made a chocolate chip bundt cake from In the Kitchen. It really reminded me of those big chocolate chip muffins that are so good. This cake was gone in a day!
I like all the organization tips too, and have organized my car... laundry area (sorted a zillion socks)... junk drawer... freezer...
Here's my menu for the week...

Monday: Golden Artichoke Bake, corn on the cob, rolls

Tuesday: Sesame Chicken, rice, broccoli

Wednesday: Make ahead spinach manicotti, green beans with new potatoes, garlic toast

Thursday: Curry Chicken, corn, rice

Friday: Sloppy Joe's, tater tots...

Saturday: Chinese take out!!! (it's tradition :o)

Sunday: San Fransisco Pork served over cooked rice, green beans with new potatoes

I'm not sure at this point how much these recipes make or how much will be leftover. If there is a lot they may cover two meals. If so some of these menu items may be seen again next week!

Hope your week is full of great, healthy meals & overflowing with blessings~

Sounds like a great mix for the week. The spinich manacotti is going to have to be something we try.

In answer to the doo-doo bread question--it doesn't need to rise--just thaw and toss it in fry until golden. And I've got plain veg. oil, but canola would work fine I'm sure.

Have a great week!

My kids love Sloppy Joes. We call them turkey pops because I make them with ground turkey. There never seems to be much leftover when I prepare these!

I have some weird kids, only the boys like sloppy Joes, I can get Princess to eat them without bread and with melted cheese on it but Sweet pea give me fits about them. I still cook them from time to time though because DH and I like them LOL

Cyndi said...
