November has arrived for this Menu Plan Monday, and a chilly weekend it was here in the midwest. I spent Saturday outside at marching band semi state finals, where 40-degree temps paired with 20 mph winds made it feel very wintery.
This week is looking a little better, and I’m taking solace from recent reports that this winter will be more “normal” than the mess we experienced last year. How is the weather where you live?
Here’s the week’s menu plan:
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.
Tuesday: fish (out of a box … I know) and mashed potatoes (those, at least, will be homemade).
Wednesday: Wendy’s Chili – (left over from last week — the recipe makes a lot and is even better later).
Thursday: Skillet Lasagna –– this is so much easier than “regular” lasagna that it has pretty much replaced it for me.
Friday: Chicken Noodle Soup — with this weather, soup sounds better and better. No real recipe, but I’ll make homemade noodles and add chicken, carrots, celery, broth, etc
Sunday is the end-of-season band potluck (didn’t I just post about the season kick-off potluck a week or so ago? It went by so quickly!), and I think I will make these. Yum.
