Menu Plan Monday

Marching band flute breakfast 2014 is history, and I hope the girls enjoyed it as much as I did.

The spread was ready, and it was fun when guests began to pour in. We don’t have a lot of people over to our house, so maybe that’s part of what made this so much fun.

Soon the living room was full of hungry, happy, laughing girls. I was hearing, “Your house is so beautiful” — “You are an amazing cook!” — “Thank you SO much for inviting me over to eat at your house” — and, wow. I might like to have 25 girls over for breakfast every Saturday 🙂

If you’d like to see our menu, I posted recipes at the end of last week’s MPM (by the way — making bacon in the oven worked better this year. Not sure why).

So, on to this week:

Monday: Chicken Stir Fry – I just cook chicken, a bag of alfalfa sprouts, a chopped carrot or two and snap peas (now ready in the garden!) in soy sauce, and serve with rice

Tuesday: Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas — this is a recipe I tore out of a magazine and kept. It’s good.

Wednesday: Freschetta Pizzas (on sale at Meijer last week) — we pick up cake rolls as a band fund raiser tonight and I know it will be busy.

Thursday: Calico Beans

Friday: Chicken and Noodles — guests here for band senior night. Just chicken, noodles (busy week; probably not homemade), carrots, celery, broth — etc.

What is going on in your kitchen this week? More ideas at OrgJunkie‘s.

  1. I am so happy the breakfast came off without a hitch! These may be the best years of your life. I just heard from my niece Rebekah overnight. She said she feels “these are my golden years”, having her children all safe, under their own roof.

  2. I’m so glad your band breakfast came off without a hitch! It sounds like lots of fun! How wonderful for your dd to be a part of such a lovely group. I’m going to look into your chicken and cheese enchilada recipe. The ones I made last week (with homemade sauce!) we’re delicious, but variety is the spice of life, right? 😉

  3. That made me smile about the girls 🙂 Back when the boy was in high school his band mates would be here all. the. time eating … I didn’t mind, really as I know some of the kids didn’t have the best home life or good food choices, so I was fine with that. 😉 I’m making chicken stir fry this week too, using up frozen veggies 🙂 Hopping over from Organized Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday Party!

  4. I like the pretty place cards identifying each of the dishes you made. Sorry they didn’t get to spend a bit more time there.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
