Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayMenu Plan Monday has arrived, spring break edition.

Spring break is not looking like much of a break — obviously, the kids will all be home. The oldest has planned 3 college visits, none less than 2 hours away. So, that will be fun, but it will make it a challenge to get dinner on the table those three days. Here is the plan:

Monday: Digiorno Pizza — yes, that’s right. Good deals on them lately, and perfect for a night with probably under an hour to get dinner ready.

Tuesday: Chicken and Broccoli Pot Pies — not exactly this recipe, since I don’t like to use store-bought bread dough due to transfats and all that unhealthy stuff. Maybe make my own biscuit dough, and personalize various ones of these for those who don’t eat meat, those who don’t like broccoli, etc …

Wednesday: fish. For the kids, this is some type of breaded fillets. For the adults, baked tilapia.

Thursday: Lasagna Soup — delicious and cozy.

Friday: Hmmm … no ideas yet. What do you think? Baked potatoes maybe?

I have some over-the-hill bananas which I used last night in making chocolate banana bread — really delicious! Note that I use 1/2 whole wheat flour, and substitute 1/2 applesauce and 1/2 canola or olive oil for the butter. This disappeared within 30 minutes of coming out of the oven.

  1. Alas, I failed to eat any fish last week and I am attempting to eat it 2x a week. I must do better this week in that arena.
    For today, I’ve fixed quite a bit of chunks of cooked chicken breasts and added a package of Taco Seasoning & water to same. I fried a new batch of zucchini patties last night. It is an inexpensive food.
    Enjoy your day at Purdue. Will Caroline be wearing black and gold?

  2. Yum haven’t made lasagna soup in years! Might have to do that soon. I posted my Menu’s but naturally two won’t work now! So, who knows! Have a great break

  3. I’m planning on making Taco soup this week. Your chicken and broccoli pot pie recipe looks enticing. I’ve enjoyed my spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce and Italian sausage.
