Menu Plan Monday! It looks like a great week coming up. That has nothing to do with cooking really, but everything to do with the great weather! 60s and 70s all week … I’m hoping my husband will plow the garden (I have strawberry plants arriving that I ordered last fall), and I need my photographer, model, and designer (those would be my daughters) to do a photo shoot for the cover of the next installment in my Kingdom Kids series. Would you believe the book has been done a couple of months and the release has just been waiting on decent weather to shoot a good cover? Ah, the authoring life :).
Here’s what’s cooking:
Monday: Foil Packet Chicken – the kids love this, and I like the way each packet can be individualized according to what that person likes.
Tuesday: Lasagna Soup – I use 1 sausage rather than a pound (we very rarely eat sausage anyway, so I prefer it more as a condiment than a main meal feature) to keep down the fat. It’s yummy!
Wednesday: Chicken Parmesan – a family favorite, and EASY!
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.
Thursday: Mexican Stuffed Shells – new recipe to me; looks delish.
Friday: Make-Your-Own Pizza – I make the dough, everyone makes their own individual pizza with toppings of choice.
I may have to try this Chocolate Mint Brownies too — just since it’s St. Patrick’s Day 🙂
