But now it’s in the 50s, and most of the snow has melted. It’s a busy week of evenings, so here is my quick and easy menu plan:
Monday: Chicken Lasagna – left from last week; I didn’t get it made then. I did, however, get the chicken cooked for it
Tuesday: Stir fry — I cut up a few carrots, a chicken breast, and add snow peas and cook that in a skillet with soy sauce. Add a package of beans sprouts and served with rice.
Wednesday: Fish (just from a box; my kids don’t like “regular” fish) and couscous
Thursday: Tortilla Soup (an easy 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.
It’s excellent with tortilla chips.
I usually double this, with 3 teens/tweens in the family.
Friday: Slow Cooker Pizza Pasta — I have made this before and it’s good.
