Monday again – is it just me, or is this menu planning thing getting old? Ah, I know – it’s probably just the drudgery that is January February. What do you do to combat the monotony of coming up with meals to cook each day?
Here’s what the week looks like on this Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: Chicken Enchilada Bake
Tuesday: White Sauce Chicken Lasagna
Wednesday: Tortilla Soup – a quick and easy favorite
16 oz. refried beans
14.5 oz. chicken broth
5 oz. chunk chicken (I usually just cook 1 chicken breast)
15.5 oz. black beans, rinsed
3/4 cup salsa
Combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 min.
Crumble a few tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl.
Ladle soup over chips and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Thursday: Johnny Marzetti – I’ve never made this, but the girls mentioned it being on the school menu so I decided to give it a try …
Friday: Corn Chowder
1/2 c. thinly sliced onion
2 T. butter
1 can mushroom pieces
2 c. diced, cooked potatoes
2 c. diced ham
2 1/2 c. milk
1 can creamed corn
2 cans mushroom soup
1-2 tsp. parsley
1/4 tsp. paprika
That sounds good for a cold day.
