Happy Menu Plan Monday after Easter! I hope you were able to enjoy yesterday and reflect on the reason for the celebration. We always attend a family gathering late Sunday afternoon. It’s 4 hours from home, and the girls get on the bus Monday morning prior to 7 a.m., so it’s always a bit stressful — but I’ve learned to roll with it. Baby steps 🙂
So, you’ll notice a few repeats from last week on this week’s menu plan. We got to eat out twice last week!
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: Southwestern Turkey Meatloaf – it’s from the April Better Homes and Gardens; can’t find the recipe online. The girls always request meatloaf but my husband hates it. This sounds good; we’ll see. It has beans in it, which he should like.
Wednesday: BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Sandwiches (minus the bacon)
Thursday: Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos
Friday: Make your own Pizza – I make dough; everyone puts on toppings they like
One note: don’t try the breakfast empanadas I linked to last week. I spent quite a bit of time preparing them, only to have my daughter declare the dough inedible (I’ll admit, it looked pretty crumbly). I’ll have to keep looking for a recipe there.
