Monday Menu Plan


Menu for the Week of October 31st, 2011

Monday- Halloween party at a friends house. If we don't eat food there, we will have leftovers. Makes for an easy Monday night!!

Tuesday- Mexican Chicken "Lasagna" 

Wednesday-  Slow Cooker Lentil Rice Casserole  from Katie's "Everything Beans Book" @ kitchenstewardship.org

Thursday-"Wanna Be" Lasagna Skillet Pasta (No boil, no bake lasagna-my kind of meal!) With Joe's Rosemary Bread (AllRecipes.com)

Friday- Herb Crusted Halibut AKA-Mommy's fish stix With a new attempt at homemade tater-tots courtesy

Saturday- Venison Chili (Oh yeah…Never had venison before, we got it from a friend. So excited to try it!)

Sunday-Sandwiches (Again, due to C-boy's AWANA program's ill-timed placement on Sunday nights at 5…Anyone know why they do this to us? Ugh)

That's the weekly round up, it's been fun planning these meals ahead of time, and makes my afternoons less stressful because I know what's in order. Breakfast and Lunches seem to fall nicely into place as well, and I have no need or desire to list them all out for the week. But I can tell you that sourdough pancakes and pumpkin oatmeal are on the breakfast list this week. Be Safe tomorrow night out with the kids (Unless you're like me and don't take kids trick or treating) have a great week!

Monday Menu October 17, 2011



Last week, I did not post a menu due to the fact that the engineer was away on business and I knew it would be a week of leftovers, freezer meals and sandwiches. Here's the lineup for this week. Have a great week and enjoy!
Monday: Turkey Burgers with Jalapeno Potato Poppers
        (Curtesy of Lifeasmom.com)
Tuesday: Chicken Enchiladas with Mexi Rice and Homemade Refried Beans
        (Beans recipes from Kitchenstweardship.org's "Everything beans book" and enchilada recipe is my   own and can be found here in my recipes list)
Wednesday: Rustic Corn Chowder
                (I'm sorry, but this recipe has no link and I don't know what magazine it came from!)
Thursday: Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry with Jasmine Rice
                (America's Test Kitchen Skillet Meals Cookbook)
Friday: Homemade Pizza’s
         (my own recipe)
Saturday: Slow Cooker Meal
         (Not too sure yet, but check out crockpotgirls.com, although many of their recipes call for canned cream of X soups, I make my own and will be subbing that part of the recipe when I figure out                 what recipe I'd like to make)
Sunday: Sandwiches Before AWANA’s

Double Chocolate Magic Bars

Double Chocolate Magic Bars

1 1/2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs (about 1 sleeve)

1/2 c. melted butter

1 c. chocolate chips

1 c. unsweetened, flaked coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk (works fine with the fat free variety)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In 9×13-inch pan, melt butter. Combine with cookie crumbs. Press lightly. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, then coconut. Drizzle sweetened, condensed milk over all. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely and cut into squares. To make ahead, store cut cookies in airtight container, separated by layers of waxed paper, and freeze.

Can I just say these taste fantastic, cold from the freezer? Oh my!
