Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayHappy Menu Plan Monday! It’s a special week as we lead up to Easter and celebrating the Lord’s resurrection. It’s also a really busy week, with several daytime and evening activities. That always makes menu planning a challenge, but it makes me extra glad that I have a plan so that cooking is less stressful on busy days.

Monday: Chicken Parmesan

1 jar marinara sauce

4 chicken breast halves

2/3 c. shredded mozzarella

1/4 c. bread crumbs

2 T. olive oil


Pour marinara sauce in bottom of ungreased 12 x 8 dish.

Place chicken over sauce.

In small bowl, mix cheeses, bread crumbs and oil. Sprinkle evenly over chicken.

Bake at 350 30-35 min.

Serve over noodles.

Tuesday: Baked Rigatoni Primavera – in the family favorites cookbook, although I haven’t made it in a long time.

Wednesday: Chicken and Noodles — no real recipe, but made with chicken breast (cut up), homemade noodles (if I have the time; otherwise I will use ready-made), carrots, celery, broth, etc …

Thursday: Calico Beans — I ate lunch with a friend last week at a place that makes good baked beans and it reminded me to make these again.

Friday: Sweet and Sour Chicken with Rice — copping out and using the Chicken Helper version . It’s pretty good 🙂

Happy Easter, everyone!

  1. Looks like you’ll be eating well this coming week. Here’s a juicy tidbit for you and your readers: I just heard on the TV news that Prince William was presented with a homemade baby shawl or blanket from the lady who made it. Supposedly he told her she may need to be making another soon. Hmmmm??

  2. This looks good, but I have some questions. I don’t see any protein, other than the bit of Parmesan sprinkled over it, in the rigatoni primavera. You have growing girls who need protein. My next question, do you really use calico beans as the entree at your meals? I’m surprised you can get away with that. It would never have flown in my home when we were growing up, but my dad was a farmer, as you know. He would have had to have eaten more than that.

  3. sounds very tasty great ideas I will be borrowing for our meals soon
    come see us.
