Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayAnother Menu Plan Monday has arrived. Sorry I missed last week — just getting back from a few days away, and coming down with the flu — which I’ve had for the entire week of spring break. Sigh … I hardly ever get sick, but I suppose if I have to, spring break is the time to do it (no piano students around to infect).

So I’m still not feeling that great, and I’d actually love to hire out the cooking this week. But since I doubt that will be happening, here goes:

Monday: Chicken Chimichanga — I was feeling really unmotivated to select recipes this week. Finally, I pulled out a Pillsbury cookbook I’ve had for years and chose a couple of items from it. This is one — apparently I made it in 2009 and liked it, according to a notation in the book.

Tuesday:  Cheesy Rotini — an old family favorite.

Wednesday: Curried Split Pea Soup — I noticed a couple of bags of dry split peas that have been in the pantry a while, so I’ll try this recipe.

Thursday: Chicken Parmesan – a family favorite, 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.

Friday: Quesadilla Quiche  — another from the Pillsbury cookbook.

Little House fans: I also hope to make Ma’s Heart Cakes this week — I’ll post about those later.

Do you use coconut oil when cooking or baking? If so, stop by tomorrow. I have a review and giveaway you’ll want to be part of.

Have a great week of cooking!

  1. Curried split pea soup – hmmm. . . I still have more peas left. 🙂

    Your week looks really good!

  2. I’m dining on Hawaiian Chicken at my home; it is the same recipe I first tried at your place. Yummy and easy!

  3. Hope you’ll be feeling better soon. It’s a bummer to have this miserable flu.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
