Menu Plan - Week of 11/8/10

Ahhh….home sweet home. I am glad to be home again with my little family and settling into our routine. I love traveling to see family but it is always sooooo nice to get home, get unpacked, get the house cleaned, and sigh a little “I love my house and my family” sigh.

And part of that routine is menu planning. I haven’t posted a menu plan for weeks and I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things again. Here is what I have planned so far for the upcoming week:

Giant Breakfast Cookies
CrockPot Apple Oatmeal (new recipe)
Cold cereal, toast and bananas
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes (from freezer)

PB&J, raisins, pickles
Cheese quesadillas, carrot sticks with ranch dip
Chicken strips, cottage cheese, apple slices

Stir fry made with leftover grilled pork chops, green beans and mushrooms from Sunday night

BBQ Chicken Drumsticks, Ranch potato wedges, Mixed vegetables, Apple slices

Black Bean Salsa Chicken (new recipe), Chips with salsa and sour cream

Hubby working late – leftovers for me and the kids

Hubby working late again; Three Cheese Garlic Chicken Pasta (new recipe) and fruit for me and the kids

Tator Tot Hotdish (made with ground turkey), lettuce salad, orange slices

Hubby’s choice…probably out to eat!

  1. You have a delicious week here -- I've always wanted to try Laura's three cheese garlic chicken pasta ... can't wait to hear how you liked it!

  2. Hi! Happy MPM! What a great menu you have this week! That chicken pasta dish sounds wonderful! Maybe you can post pics after you try it! Thanks for sharing.

  3. The 3 Cheese Garlic Chicken Pasta stabds out to me. Sounds like something I'll be giving a try for my family. Thanks for sharing!
    And thanks for stopping my to check out my menu too.
    I see you are in the St. Paul area...that's where both of my parents grew up. We're all in North Carolina now :)

  4. Tater hot dish sounds good.. I wonder I could make it and just slice thin slices of fresh potatoes? What do you think? I've never made anything like that before, but it sounds good!
