Menu Plan Monday time again. My mom is visiting here this week during her spring break, so hopefully she will help some with cooking and even with menu inspiration. Our own spring break is next week, and I am in a bit of a menu rut. It has probably been a long winter most places, but it has been here for sure!
I have a bit of a dilemma. I am totally out of chicken breasts, which is one of the main meats I cook with. I always buy them when they are $2/lb or less, which they often have been at Meijer — until recently. Meijer must be raising their prices, because they haven’t been at that price in quite some time. I saw that they are at a good price at Gordon Food Service this week, so I think I’ll stop in there. Any tips you’ve found for buying chicken cheaply? And no, I don’t like to buy whole chickens — too much work!
Monday: Duggars’ Taco Soup — Mom requested this after seeing it previously on the menu. It is good.
Tuesday: Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Crockpot Casserole — requested frequently, and no wonder because it’s delicious (and I love that it’s easy). I skip the bacon.
Wednesday: Ginger Chicken Stir Fry with Asparagus and Shiitake Mushroom — tore this out of a magazine lately; it looks good. I’ll be leaving out the mushrooms because I hope others will eat it (I’m already taking a chance there with the asparagus … pray for me …)
Thursday: Quesadillas — middle daughter requested them, “just tortillas and cheese.” I’ll probably also have salsa, some chicken — hmmm, any more ideas?
Friday: I have half a bag of Bob’s Red Mill black bean soup mix left — I think I’ll make that along with a loaf of bread in the the bread machine. Spring break begins for us today! How about you?
What’s making up your menu plan Monday this week?
