Menu Plan Monday arrives on what’s a steamy hot week here in the midwest. It’s been a delightfully cool-ish summer for us up to about a week ago, so I shouldn’t complain (and especially not after the winter we experienced). But sitting at the first football game Friday night really felt like being in a sauna.
Last week went fairly well using the crockpot several times. We didn’t really feel any of the recipes I tried were “keepers,” but sometimes that happens. I’ll keep experimenting. But in the meantime, I feel like I should make some things people like “for sure” this week, since last week wasn’t so great. Look out for some family favorites.
Here’s this week’s plan:
Monday: Football Fiesta Casserole — one of the girls’ favorites, and requested for the week.
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: Vegan Crockpot White Chili — left from last week, and no longer vegan as some chicken was added. Probably French bread in the bread machine too.
Thursday: Make your own pizza — I make the dough; each person adds toppings of choice to their own personal pizza.
Friday: Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks — these are really good!
Oh, and a quick note of thanks to daughter #2, who decided she’d make pancakes for our dinner last Friday (my husband was on his final day of a work trip, and he doesn’t like pancakes). Always a treat to get a break from cooking!
