Hello friendly readers and welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! This week has been quite a jumble, with me returning from sunny Florida.
and back again. But, it was wonderful to see green and growing sights, and to not cook for a week was truly a treat.
More to come on the food (and other aspects of the trip) on the blog in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
So, we start the week rolling with some of the kids spending all day Monday at Indianapolis paging for our local representative. A fun day, but very busy again. Here’s how the week’s menu plan shapes up:
Monday: frozen pizza (see paragraph above)
16 oz. refried beans
14.5 oz. chicken broth
5 oz. chunk chicken (I usually just cook 1 chicken breast)
15.5 oz. black beans, rinsed
3/4 cup salsa
Combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 min.
Crumble a few tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl.
Ladle soup over chips and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
You can also cut tortillas into strips and bake them for a few minutes to serve with this.
Wednesday: White Chicken Lasagna — very popular here lately.
Thursday: Healthy Mexican Casserole — new recipe.
Friday: Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti — made it and it’s good.
