Menu Plan Monday


Last week there ended up being a couple of changes to the menu for a couple of different reasons, but both meals that we didn't make, i have pushed to this week so it all works out!! And let me tell ya...the brown sugar chicken was AMAZING!!! It was soooo good...a big hit with the whole family!!

This week, hubby's work schedule is changing and he will not be home in the evening's. This is a huge adjustment and so our menu is filled with very simple, quick dinners that make very little mess! This way i can make the necessary adjustments w/o being overwhelmed by a time consuming dinner menu! One more benefit of menu planning......i was able to cater the menu to my family's needs for the week!!!

Monday: Chicken Nuggets w/ mac-n-cheese & mixed veggies

Tuesday: Easy Chicken Parmesan (see recipe below)

Wednesday: Taquitos w/ corn & pinto beans

Thursday: Candied Sausage w/ rice & broccoli

Friday: Baked Potatoes

Saturday: Grilled burgers w/ baked beans & asparagus

Sunday: Take-out/leftovers

Like i said, this week's menu is far from inspiring and not even all that interesting, but it is just what i need for a week like this! And now i will share my dirty little secret for my easy chicken parm!!

Easy Chicken Parmesan

frozen breaded chicken patties

spaghetti noodles

jar of spaghetti sauce

shredded parmesan cheese

*cook chicken patties according to instructions on package

*boil spaghetti noodles and drain

*warm spaghetti sauce over med heat

*layer noodles, chicken, sauce and sprinkle w/ parmesan cheese!!

Ok...so maybe its not dirty and maybe not even really a secret but it is super EASY and the kids LOVE it!!

And as always there is lots of meal time fun to check out over at orgjunkie.com so head on over and be inspired!! Hope you all have a fabulous week!!
