Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayMenu Plan Monday has arrived again, after a very busy weekend. We had a fun Saturday celebrating all three girls’ birthdays with relatives who came to visit. One daughter’s actual birthday was on Saturday, and the other two celebrate theirs in the next two weeks.

My sister made a fun polka dot cake at daughter #2’s request:

I think it was a bit of a pain to make, but if you’ve got the time and the motivation (and cake ball pans), look it up on Google or Pinterest and give it a try 🙂

Thankfully, daughter #3 requested a simpler chocolate cake with strawberries. It was yummy, too!

So, on to this week’s dinners:

Monday:  Southwest Turkey Meatloaf — daughter #3’s birthday dinner request. It’s good!

Tuesday: Calico Beans — my husband is always requesting a “bean night.”

Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie — I would eat this every week 🙂

Thursday: Leftover Buffet

Friday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies — easy and smells/tastes great!

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.

  1. Our party day Saturday was extra special this year! That polka dot cake was a show stopper!
    For the day you serve Chicken Pot Pie, try the new recipe I brought. I think I’ll try it this week. Even if I have a good recipe, I still like trying new ways of making it. You can keep improving the wheel.

  2. I want to try the meatloaf! Wish I could eat at your house this week!!!!!

  3. Jill, I often wish I could eat at Susan’s house! Her menu plans are so interesting. Keep up the good work, Susan.

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