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


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!

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.
