Happy menu plan Monday! Here, it is another cold, snowy, icy, and freezing cold week. This winter has been much harsher than any year we’ve had for a while. I’m not a fan of cold weather, but I’m hoping that this will result in less garden pests this spring and summer. Is this winter severe where you live as well?
It was easy to plan this week’s dinners, because as ideas came to me during this week, I jotted them onto my menu planner. This afternoon, every spot except one was filled. I like that idea. How do you plan dinners — all on one day, or throughout the week?
Monday: Southwestern Chicken Lasagna — this looks similar to my recipe, although mine takes a can of chili. Maybe that’s in place of the spaghetti sauce in this recipe?
Tuesday: baked tilapia — I like to buy frozen fish when it’s on sale. I’ll also make rice and veggies with this.
Wednesday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies — easy and 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 425.
Thursday: Indian Chick Pea and Vegetable Stew — carried over from last week, when it didn’t happen. Toy Lady speculated last week that this wouldn’t go over at her place due to the cauliflower. That’s a distinct possibility here as well, so I think I’ll just add extra potatoes and leave out the cauliflower — although I hate to because I like cauliflower. Oh well …
Friday: Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan — I have a chicken parmesan recipe I already make and enjoy, but one of my daughters sent me the “pin” of this recipe. I like that it’s done in the crockpot. I will try it.
