Menu Plan Monday


Happy Menu Plan Monday! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a happy 2015. It has been nice, with Christmas travels, to have a few days off from cooking. But, now we’re back. I asked the girls what they wanted and CHICKEN LASAGNA it was. They requested it AGAIN for this coming week, so you’ll find it on Friday. It’s a good “white” lasagna recipe that I first had when our pastor’s wife made it and brought it over when my oldest daughter was born. We’re still enjoying the recipe.

Monday: Pasta Alla Genovese — Tracy Pollan (married to Michael J. Fox)’s recipe; torn from OK! Magazine — unfortunately, I can’t fine it online to link to. I’ll report whether it’s a keeper or not.

Tuesday: Daughter #2 offered to make dinner — yay! Creamy Baked Potato Soup with Vegan Hamburger Buns as bread, and Vegan Spice Cake for dessert. I am so glad that all three of my girls are good at cooking and baking, and that they even sometimes offer to cook for the family.

Wednesday:  Daughter #1 volunteered to make quesadillas. Not sure what this will involve, but probably just tortillas, cooked, chicken, black olives, and cheese. When someone volunteers to cook, I don’t ask too many questions 🙂

Thursday:  Calico Beans — a favorite around here, and easy to throw into the crockpot. I will also probably make bread dough in the bread machine to make into bread sticks.

Friday: White Chicken Lasagna — requested twice in a week!

  1. So happy to read that your children are cooking this week. Way to go, Susan! Maybe you can get the third one going on it, too. Happy New Year!

  2. I read recently that children can sign up for 4-H on line. Yes, I know this is a blog about cooking – but 4-H & cooking are bed partners, you know!

  3. Everything sounds delicious! And your girls are helping out this week; that’s wonderful! Enjoy the short cooking vacations!

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