Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayMenu Plan Monday time! For many people, the week before Christmas is the busiest of the year. For me, it’s probably this week. I will give 13 piano lessons and practice with most of the 14 band students I’m accompanying at ISSMA solo and ensemble contest this Saturday. It’s busy, but it’s a good busy. But something’s gotta give, and this week, “something” is probably labor-intensive meals. We’re keeping it simple …

Monday: Roast Chicken and Veggies – a favorite, and I’ve made it so many times I could probably prepare it blindfolded:

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.

Tuesday: a Stouffer’s frozen meal. I know, I’m hanging my head (just a bit), but I do have a coupon for a free one, so at least there’s that 🙂

Wednesday: leftover buffet – because the fridge is filling up …

Thursday: Vegetable fried rice – I made this about a month ago. One child loved it. Another threw up (totally unrelated) and says she never wants to see it again. Should be interesting. I’ll probably add chicken.

Friday: Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks – the kids love these. I think they’re pretty great, too (side note: I looked around the blog featuring these when I got the link. Holy cow – lots of yummy food there. Check out her “favorite recipes from 2011 post”).

What are you cooking this week?

  1. I can understand why the daughter who threw up following fried rice doesn’t want to see it again. I had food poisoning years ago following eating in a steakhouse. I still don’t like steak!!!

  2. I LOVE And Then There Were None the book. It was very suspenseful! 🙂 I don’t think I saw the movie! 🙂
    I also adore CS Lewis and would like to read this memoir… as well as re-read some of his books
