Welcome to what feels like a very wintry Menu Plan Monday! We got an inch or two of snow yesterday, plus wind, ice, and falling temperatures that brought an abrupt end to a long mild stretch. I was glad that my oldest daughter, who returned to college Saturday after Christmas break, got some snow there too, since she had wanted some.
With my 17 piano students, and this month adding in students I accompany at solo/ensemble contest 1/31, dinner hours are busy. Especially on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, I’m not free to work on food prep until 5:30 or 6. So, I’m trying on those nights to either use the crockpot, or things I can prep early, or things that are just really quick and easy to make. Any suggestions welcome!
Here’s the menu plan for this week:
Monday: Mexican Tamale Pies — I “pinned” these and honestly can’t remember if I’ve made them or not.
Tuesday: BBQ Ranch Chicken Casserole — I’ve made (and loved) this a few times.
Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings — another recipe I’ve pinned that looks good, quick, and easy.
Thursday: Wendy’s Chili — this seems like a good week for chili.
Friday: Chicken, Spinach, and Cannellini Bean Quesadillas — made before; really tasty (pictured at the top of the post). They’re also really easy to individualize for the resident vegetarian, etc.
