Welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! I’m planning menus for the week today with a slight case of the flu, which isn’t the ideal way to do it — but it must be done, so …
The week ahead looks like a good one. Our temperatures should be in the 60s, which is quite a welcome change after — well, winter. I’m hoping this is it for winter this year. I have some seeds I checked out of the “seed library” at a local library branch, and maybe this week I’ll start those (I love the idea of seeds at the library. Of course, you can’t turn them back in — but they ask that you grow vegetables from them, and then if possible return some seeds at the end of harvest for next season). The past few years I haven’t started tomatoes (or most other things) from seeds, but this thing from the library has motivated me to try again.
Here’s the menu plan:
Monday: Skinny Chicken and Spinach Alfredo — made this a few weeks ago, and it was really tasty. I only used one jar of the alfredo sauce, and it was still good (see photo at the top).
Tuesday: Slow Cooker Meatloaf with veggies– tore this out of a Redbook magazine. I can’t find it online. Basically, it looks like I coat potatoes, carrots, and onions with flour and pour broth over them; then form a meatloaf and set it on top, and cook for 6 hours. How about I’ll try it, and if it’s good, I’ll type out the recipe …
Wednesday: Wendy’s Chili — left from last week. I love it when that happens!
Thursday: I think I’ll make a quick-n-easy Hamburger Helper this night 🙂
Friday: Taco Potatoes — new recipe, looks good.
