Okay, so I’m a little late today but it is Monday and time for another Menu Plan Monday hosted by Laura over at Orgjunkie! If you’ve never checked this out you should wander over. There are usually close to 200 (sometimes more) people from all over the globe that post what they are eating this week! You can find some great recipes and it helps keep me focused and make sure I’m menu planning (which in turn helps keep the food costs down!) You’ll notice that several of my recipes have links to the Kraft Foods website. If you have never tried any of their recipes you should give them a try! They are so good, so fast and so easy. Plus, they often use staples that are already in the pantry! Yeah! So without further ado, here’s what we are eating this week!
Monday: quick taco salad This was so good and so easy! The romaine lettuce made it so crispy and tasted so fresh! If you are looking for a quick and easy light supper this is super!!!
Tuesday: Hawaiian Pork roast at mom’s house!
Wednesday: oven-baked chicken parmesean, salad
Thursday: golden mushroom pork chops, baked potatoes, green beans
This is a super easy recipe that I do in the slow-cooker. You take boneless pork chops and put them in the slow cooker with a can (or 2 depending on how much gravy you want) of golden mushroom soup. I then layer on some sliced onion and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook it all day and by the time dinner rolls around pop some potatoes in the microwave. Serve the pork chops with potatoes and the soup as gravy. I love to put the gravy on the potato too! YUMMY!!! I also serve it with green beans to round it out! Enjoy!
Friday: sweet and sour chicken stir-fry
Saturday: egg salad sandwiches, fresh fruit salad
Sunday: Stouffer’s chicken lasagna, salad
Boy have I been slacking lately! I haven’t done a menu plan in about 6 weeks and I have to be honest we’ve been totally lost. I realize now how awesome these plans are with making sure we are eating well and eating early (instead of at 7 or 8 because we had to defrost something!!!!) So without further ado, here’s what we’re eating this week.
Monday: Leftover Easter ham, baked sweet potatoes, fruit salad
Tuesday: dinner at Mom’s
Wednesday: Pinto beans and ham (using Easter ham bone), cornbread
Thursday: Fiesta Chicken Pasta, salad, rolls
Friday: No-Fuss Tex-Mex Roll-Ups, refried beans, mexican rice
Saturday: Stir-fried Rice Pot, pineapple
Sunday: Whatever we didn’t get to eat this week!
Have a great week everybody and happy eating! (Oh, I’ll be posting Easter pics tomorrow so stop in and see what we did this Easter!)
