I’ve had friends read my Menu Plan Monday plans and exclaim over how impressed they are. This is funny to me, because honestly I’m not much of a cook. I cook a lot, out of necessity, but most things I make aren’t all that pretty. And often, they don’t even taste too great, although I blame that on the substitutions I make in the name of healthy eating. It’s all about the choices we make, ya know.
But, for all you impressed folks out there, I thought I would share a big ol’ recipe flop from last week. My youngest daughter needs to make microwave fudge for the fair this summer. So, we found a recipe in her 4-H book and made it. It was a total flop. It did not get thick in the least. The girls did eat it, saying it tasted like pudding. But still – not fair-worthy, by a long shot.
Do you want a good (and easy) fudge recipe? Try this one – I made it over Christmas break and it did indeed turn out great.
So, spring break is over and here is how the week looks. If you’re a regular, you may notice a visitor or two from last week that I’m carrying over because they didn’t happen as planned.
Monday: Deep Dish Turkey Pot Pie
Tuesday: Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
Wednesday: Cheeseburger Pie – one of the kids’ favorites
Thursday: fish night – I bake tilapia filets, sprinkled with lemon pepper seasoning, and serve with rice and vegetables
Friday: Chicken Parmesan – easy and yummy
1 jar marinara sauce
4 chicken breast halves
2/3 c. shredded mozzarella
1/4 c. bread crumbs
2 T. olive oil
Pour marinara sauce in bottom of ungreased 12 x 8 dish.
Place chicken over sauce.
In small bowl, mix cheeses, bread crumbs and oil. Sprinkle evenly over chicken.
Bake at 350 30-35 min.
Serve over noodles (I will make homemade noodles).
Happy cooking and eating!
