Menu Plan Monday

menuplanmondayHappy Menu Plan Monday to all you readers out there! This has been a great week because winter has finally loosened its grip. We saw temperatures near 40 the past few days, and this week may even reach 50. After another long winter, that is cause for celebration. Yesterday I even saw a rabbit exploring the sunflower seed shells beneath the bird feeder!rabbit by bird feederHere is the menu plan for the week:

Monday: tacos. The girls requested these, and it will probably just be easy — bowls with cooked chicken, cheese, olives, salsa, etc.

Tuesday: Fresh Basil and Navy Bean Soup — new recipe pulled from a magazine (looks like you have to register at BHG (free) to view it; sorry).

Wednesday: fish again — trying Crusted Tilapia Florentine (although maybe with salmon)  this week.

Thursday:

TORTILLA SOUP (always a favorite here)

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.

Friday: Cheeseburger and Fries pie — probably with tater tots rather than fries on top. Not the healthiest thing maybe, but it does look good 😉

  1. I believe recently you were fixing baked salmon. I am wondering if that turned out as a plus or a minus?

  2. Last week’s not so exciting, that is why I am trying a different recipe this time … live and learn …

  3. I’m thinking of trying the tortilla soup without the refired beans since I’m not a fan of them. Would it work?

  4. It should — the refried beans just make it more creamy, so without them it would be more “soupy.” Do you not like the flavor of refried beans? If that’s it, leave them out. But if you just don’t like their consistency, don’t worry about that because they do pretty much “melt” in the soup.

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