Menu Plan Monday


It’s Monday again.  I’m really grateful for the structure Menu Plan Monday has given to my weeks as far as meal planning goes.  If you’re like me and don’t enjoy cooking (I know some of you do, since I have friends who do – and this baffles me, yet I’m happy for you!), getting meals on the table 6 days a week (thankfully I take Sundays off) becomes tediously repetitive.

So, I hope you can glean an idea or two here to lighten your load.  This week most of the recipes are from a Pillsbury Bake Off magazine I got for doing a survey or something online.  I just looked through it and wrote down ones that looked good to me.

Monday: Stove Top Chicken Enchilada Lasagna I’ll be modifying this as I see it says it makes 2 servings, each with 970 calories!  Yikes!  For instance, no butter and fat-free cheese and sour cream (many people complain about fat free cheese, but I use it so often it’s normal to me and my family).

Tuesday: Tex Mex Pasta Our zucchini is finally gone, so I’ll have to substitute something else.  After zucchini being so plentiful during the summer, I just can’t pay for it.  Just can’t.

Wednesday: Cheese Topped Taco Pie

Thursday: French’s Onion Chicken Easy and always popular … maybe make mashed potatoes with it and another green veggie …

Friday: Chicken Chimichange with Jalapeno Cream

It’s looking like I was in a Mexican mood when I paged through the book, huh?  Hopefully there will be some winners among those.

Happy cooking, eating, and menu plan Monday-ing to all!

  1. I don’t know how you do it. I so hate cooking, but since I’m alone, it’s not a problem, for which I’m so grateful. I honestly can’t remember the last time I cooked a meal–and I’m not exaggerating. One of the greatest blessings of the single life, in my opinion.
