Menu Plan Monday: July 13-19, 2009

July 13, 2009

After a month and a half of being insanely busy, we are finally being treated to a calm, relatively uneventful week.  Please excuse me, I just need to revel in that for a moment…

Ahhhh, that feels soooo good!

This week I’m planning my meals with a focus on ingredients that I already have on hand.  My freezer is packed and I need to use some of the stuff that’s in there.  Here’s what I’m cooking:

Monday — We missed family movie night the last few Fridays so we will have a special Monday edition of Family Movie Night this week.  Make your own pizzas will be the dinner and “Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front” will be the movie.

Tuesday — I’m going to thaw out some pork chops that I cooked and put in the freezer.  Serving with au gratin potatoes and succotash.

Wednesday — Sophia has VBS this evening, so dinner will be simple — chicken sandwiches and crispy ranch fries (recipe from the latest Paula Deen magazine) along with fresh fruit.

Thursday — Sophia has requested chicken enchiladas.  I still haven’t found a recipe that I love, so I’m trying another new one:  this one.  Serving with salad.

Friday — ham, pierogies, mixed vegetables

Saturday — fixing sour cream bacon chicken in the crockpot.  Serving with rice and broccoli.  Will probably halve the recipe as we don’t need 8 servings.

Sunday — leftovers or snacking.



  1. I hope you enjoy the enchilada recipe. We sure like it, and it’s cheap and easy!

    Sour cream bacon chicken sounds delicious. I can’t resist anything with bacon. May have to try it!


  2. […] on last week’s menu: I tried a few new recipes last week.  The Crispy Ranch Fries were good, although not drastically […]
