Menu Plan Monday time –Here we are, in the “countdown to Christmas” phase of the year. Fun and exciting to be sure, but also a bit crazy busy. It can be difficult to find easy menus for the month. Here’s my look ahead at a busy week:
Monday: Corn and Cheese Enchiladas – I’ve had this in the ‘to try’ pile for awhile, and this is the week.
Tuesday: Chicken Casserole – commenter Leona pulled out a magazine page for me with this on it (do you exchange “piles” with friends, of things you think the other would enjoy? It’s fun!)
Wednesday: Some type of bread machine bread and soup … it may be canned (yikes!). I have 3 piano students and then the girls and I are visiting the Animal Shelter’s open house, which goes right up until dinner time.
Thursday: leftover buffet … youngest daughter and I are participating in the school choir tour and will eat pizza at that 🙂
Friday: Tortilla Soup – a family 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.
Need a yummy and easy dessert? The girls and I made Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars over the weekend – no baking and delicious!
