Menu Plan Monday: February 23-March1, 2009

February 23, 2009

I can hardly believe it, but for the second week in a row, I stuck to my menu every day, even when that meant that dinner was served quite late in the evening.  I have to remember to check preparation time earlier in the day.

The chicken enchiladas I tried last week turned out well.  I didn’t use the diced green chiles because I didn’t want it to be too spicy for the kids.  Instead, I used half a packet of taco seasoning in the sauce mix.  Sophia LOVED this dish and immediately claimed the leftovers for a future meal.   If I make it again, I will probably use “real” chicken instead of the canned.  Also, 12 ounces of meat isn’t much for a family of four.

Likewise, the black beans turned out well, despite the fact that I’d forgotten to get cilantro at the store.  I used just a dash of cayenne pepper instead of 1/4 teaspoon in order to keep protests to a minimum.

Here’s what’s cooking this week:

Monday Chicken spaghetti:  half for tonight, half to go in the freezer for another time.

Tuesday — Girl Scouts tonight.  I’ll be picking up pizzas for the girls.

Wednesday — A quick dinner before cell group.  I’ll  fix Monterey  Jack Turkey Burgers, served with potato chips and baked beans.

Thursday — To Die for Pot Roast, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies.

Friday — Family movie night.  We’ll make individual pizzas and watch Madagascar 2.

Saturday — Mom’s Night Out!  Dan and the kids are on their own.

Sunday — leftovers or snacking.
