Menu Planning Monday

Welcome back y'all. I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

Well from looking at what my daughter and I have planned for meals this week, it is the week of the chicken. We've thrown in one fish night for good measure and to throw a curve ball to the guys when they say, "What's for dinner, chicken?" LOL. Can't wait for that one.

As you have probably noticed, we don't repeat a lot of meals often. We like variety and we never get bored trying new recipes. We will pull out a few of our favorite fall and winter recipes from last year. For the most part we will have at least a few recipes that you have not tried. We will always update you the following week if we made any changes to the recipes used.

This week we were in the mood for food with a lot of flavor. I guess it's that whole going from summer to fall transition. We are in the mood for comfort food and our comfort food has a lot of flavor. I am so excited about the fall and winter recipes. I hope y'all will check back to see what we're cooking.

There were no changes to last weeks recipes. We liked everything except the slaw recipe from friday.

Monday-Labor Day Family Get Together

Tuesday-Hoisin Chicken Wraps and sugar snap peas

Wednesday-Bourbon Orange Skillet BBQ Chicken with Cornbread Topper and a side salad

Thursday-Spicy Ginger-and-Orange Chicken with Broccoli, rice and egg rolls

Friday-Fish Tacos with Quick Slaw, Avocado Sauce and Green Rice

Saturday-Dinner Out after church

Sunday Supper-Old-Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings with a side salad

  1. Sounds like a great plan! Your Thursday menu sounds especially delicious!

  2. We always have a ton of chicken on our menu! So I do not think I would have even noticed. Everything sound great and the chicken and dumplings will be just perfect up here in MI soon!

  3. Thanks for the comments Melissa and Shannon.

    Shannon, you are so right about the chicken and dumplings being perfect for MI soon. I use to live in northern Indiana when I was very young.
