Menu Planning Monday
Last weeks menu was a great success. The Hoisin Chicken Wraps on last weeks menu was definitely a family favorite and will be repeated before the year is over. The fish taco menu was also very yummy. Jessica especially liked the green rice. We thought that the Spicy Ginger-and-Orange Chicken with Broccoli was not spicy enough. We will add some crushed red pepper flakes the next time we make that one. We only used a 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper this time.
This week my son Sean has his first football game of the season. He is in 7th grade and we are very excited for him. Because we don't know exactly when we'll be home, sloppy joes will be on the menu. Reheating that will make for a quick gamenight meal.
We are using proteins we already have in the freezer to keep the grocery budget down a little this week. Because we had a lot of chicken last week, I have decided to really mixup the menu this week. I hope you are ready. It's going to be a good one.
Tuesday-Mexican Turkey Casserole
Wednesday-Big Boy Sugo over egg noodles, green beans and rolls (The recipe for the Sugo is from Rachal Ray's Big Orange Book cookbook. After we try it, I will type it up if we feel like it was worth the time it takes to make.)
Thursday-Chicken Sausages, Not Potato Salad, and Cantelope
Saturday-Dinner Out after church
Sunday-Garlic and Rosemary Meatballs in Red Sauce, eggnoodles, and salad
After reading our menu plan, I hope your mouth is watering and you are ready to try something new.
Have you tried any new recipes recently that your family liked? If so, feel free to leave a comment and share some of your favorites.
