Menu Plan Monday

Happy Menu Plan Monday! It is another freezing cold, snowy, windy day here in the midwest. But at least this week will take us to the end of January, and then February is shorter 🙂

In addition to my 17 piano students, this week I’ll be practicing with 10 students I’m accompanying at ISSMA contest the next 2 Saturdays. Two of my girls are also competing. It’s always a fun, exciting contrast to January’s drudgery.

Here is our menu plan for this busy week:

Monday: Pesto Chicken Pizza — new recipe, doesn’t it look good?

Tuesday: Pasta with Mushrooms and Peas — a favorite from years back

8 oz sliced mushrooms

1/4 c. chopped onions

1 clove garlic

16 oz. tomatoes with liquid

10 oz frozen peas

1 T. basil

8 oz. cooked pasta (we like gemelli twists)

In skillet, cook mushrooms, onion and garlic until onion is tender. Add tomatoes, peas, and basil, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 min. Toss with pasta.

Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken Enchiladas — looks easy. That is important this week.

Thursday: BBQ Ranch Chicken Casserole — I’ve made this and it’s great!

Friday: Parmesan Crusted Bruschetta Chicken — I’ve made this as well; a winner.

For the weekend’s Super Bowl party at a friend’s — Cowboy Caviar and chips.

  1. Keep a song in your heart as you cook for your family and be thankful. You have no problem buying good food. You have a wonderful warm clean home to cook in. You are blessed. I am, too!

  2. You are attending a super bowl party, Susan? I am rereading this, trying to decide if I misread it.

  3. Why yes, the whole family (if I can convince them) is headed to the party. Although, it’s much more for the friendship than the game (at least from my perspective; it’s a friend of mine). I actually think I know the teams playing this year — Sea Hawks and Patriots??? 🙂

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