This should be a fun Menu Plan Monday. First, at my house, my husband is traveling all week, which is great because it means I can relax my cooking a little. Second, Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married this week! and I plan to celebrate a little with my menus. Third, one of my girls has a birthday this week. Too much celebrating for one week, huh?
Here’s the plan:
Monday: Skillet Chicken Nachos
Tuesday: I think I will splurge and get pizza tonight. Woo hoo!
Wednesday: Roasted Chicken and Vegetables – a family favorite.
The house smells great when this is baking! Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a couple of carrots, a couple of potatoes – put in a roasting pan, then top with 1/3 c. olive oil and a packet (actually I use 1/2 packet) of dry onion soup mix. Bake 45 minutes at 450.
I just made this last week, but my daughter wanted it for her birthday so I’m making it again. It’s okay – I love it too! She has requested chocolate cake for dessert :). Welcome to the double digits, daughter #3!
Thursday: Royal Wedding Scones – I tried these last week and they are so yummy! This week, I may try some with chocolate chips and some with fruit (not sure if my crowd will go for blueberries or not).
On a less exciting note, we’ll probably clean up some leftovers as well.
Friday: Cottage Pie, said to be Prince William’s favorite childhood dish. What a fun way to celebrate his wedding day by making this!
For dessert, cupcakes with Kate Middleton cupcake toppers.
