Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayHow was everyone’s Christmas? Good, I hope. Now we are in that odd Christmas-is-over-New-Year’s-hasn’t-arrived time. Honestly, it was a little hard to get motivated to come up with a menu plan Monday post this week. But I have done it 🙂 Here goes:

Monday: Parmesan-Crusted Bruschetta Chicken — this printed out at the grocery store, and it has been on a to-try pile for a while. Looks good; we’ll see.

Tuesday: Bountiful Black Bean soup — recipe from the back of a bag of  Bob’d Red Mill Black Bean Soup mix. It was at Big Lots. Woo hoo!

Wednesday: Stir fry — I just cut up and cook a chicken breast in a skillet, then add a few carrots, snap peas, bag of bean sprouts, and soy sauce. Serve with rice.

Thursday: pierogies — as in, frozen in a box from the store where they were recently on sale. We always eat these with marinara sauce, which I have learned from my commenters is quite odd. Hmmmm … how do you eat your pierogies?

Friday: Make your own pizza — in which I make pizza dough and each person adds his/her own choices of toppings on a personal pizza.

I’m sure there will be other goodies made this week as well — it’s New Year! Hoping it is happy for all of you.

What’s on your Menu Plan Monday?

  1. I am staring at a blank week in my life. I just returned from Christmas visiting and will need to shift gears to life alone. I could hibernate all week and not be missed by one soul. When I eat, I will eat Christmas leftovers. I’ve got a truck load!

  2. For the pierogies: saute onions then add enough butter (melted) to make a sauce. (I believe that’s the “traditional” way to serve them.) Or mix one can cream of soup with one can milk in a 9 x 13, add frozen pierogies and stir. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes, stir again. Once they’re heated through, cover with shredded cheese…let that melt in oven. Take it out and sprinkle bacon crumbles and chopped green onions on top. It’s like a baked potato casserole, almost all of the soup gets absorbed.

  3. The Parmesan Crusted Bruschetta Chicken sounds so good! I love Pierogis, I need to remember to make them more often!

  4. I usually saute pierogies in some butter (sometimes adding in some sliced onions) and then serve with a dollop of sour cream. I do, however, from time to time eat them with leftover spaghetti sauce.

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