Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayHappy Monday, friends. I hope you’ve had a nice week. The fair will be coming up soon here. One of the girls is making yeast rolls this year,  and I think we’re going with this one. This week, I think she’ll try one from a 4-H recipe book, which contains potato flakes and brown sugar. If any of you have a yeast roll recipe that you think is a real winner, feel free to pass it along in the comments. Thanks!

Monday: In honor of Prince William’s 32nd birthday, which was Saturday, how about his favorite recipe: Cottage Pie

Tuesday: Chicken Parmesan – an easy family favorite

1 jar marinara sauce

4 chicken breast halves

2/3 c. shredded mozzarella

1/4 c. bread crumbs

2 T. olive oil

noodles

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.

Wednesday: Garden Pasta Bake – easy; combines pasta and veggies in a meatless dish

Thursday: Calico Beans

On Prince William’s actual birthday, we celebrated with gingerbread scones. Try them; they are delicious!

Friday:

TORTILLA SOUP (yes, it’s summer, but one of the girls requested it and it should be fine, thanks to AC)

16 oz. refried beans

14.5 oz. chicken broth

5 oz. chunk chicken (I usually just cook 1 chicken breast)

15.5 oz. black beans, rinsed

3/4 cup salsa

Combine all ingredients.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 min.

Crumble a few tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl.

Ladle soup over chips and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

What are you cooking this week?

  1. I love your presentation with the scones… Pretty enough for a magazine display, I think.

  2. I am so glad I stopped by here! I didn’t know it was the Prince’s birthday! I am also glad to see your scone recipe! I love scones! Pinning

  3. I missed this somehow, yesterday. Glad to be back on track.

  4. Your recipes always sound good! It is great that you still cook from scratch the old-fashioned way, which also saves money. I actually made a new dish today that is called “Nacho casserole” by the Amish cook’s newspaper article. Joe thought that it was pretty good.
