Menu Plan Monday time again! What’s the weather like where you live? My youngest daughter and I helped at a marching band event Saturday, and it was so cold here. Temps in the 40s, but with strong winds, and at times sleet and some even said a bit of snow. Not what I would hope to see in early October, that’s for sure. This week looks a little better. I would like to hold on to the 70-degree days as long as I can.
This week is extra busy cooking-wise, with dinner guests here Friday for the high school football game (we go to watch the band), and on Saturday morning I am hosting the ~25 marching band flutes for breakfast. I did this last year too, and it was fun. The girls are all nice and polite.
Here are the plans:
Monday: Wendy’s chili — the weather is certainly cold enough to start making chili again. I wish I had more garden tomatoes to use in it.
Tuesday: Oven Roasted Chicken and Veggies — easy and tastes great!
Cut up a couple of chicken breasts, a couple of carrots, a couple of potatoes – put in a roasting pan, then top with 1/3 c. olive oil and a packet (actually I use 1/2 packet) of dry onion soup mix. Bake 45 minutes at 425.
I make this recipe a lot, and you can feel free to tweak it: add different vegetables, add more or less oil, adjust the temperature based on your oven, etc.
Wednesday: My husband is gone on a work trip, so — pancakes for dinner! Woo hoo!
Thursday: Poppyseed chicken –– one of the girls’ favorites, and I haven’t made it in a while.
Friday: Cheeseburger Buns
Saturday: Flute Breakfast —
Bacon (I never cook or eat bacon, but it’s a band breakfast tradition. I’ve heard that it’s easiest to bake it. I tried this last year and didn’t think it turned out too great. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes …)
Chocolate Milk, OJ
Fall M&M’s, Candy Corn and Peanuts.
