Menu Plan Monday

Today I am ahead of the game!!! I actually am trying to post this on Sunday night! I've added {too many} comments in the posts. . .so enjoy!

Monday- Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts, buns, pesto noodles (pesto recipe-it's home-made. When I make this, I freeze it in ice cube trays and then it goes in a zip-lock in the freezer to pull out whenever I need pesto), salad
(*Please also note, I add salt and mayo and butter to the pesto noodles. I find the recipe link weak {no offense to the one who posted it!}, but a good idea. . .and easy!)

Tuesday-Perogie and Sausage Casserole, corn

Wednesday- BBQ Chicken and Potato Bake (the recipe came from an Air Bake pan). cut veggies
(My frugal tip for today: This recipe is easy and yum. . .and i have to get rid of some of my potatoes. the "potato" part calls for hash browns, but I make my own--cutting up potatoes and putting them in oil, then in the oven at 375 for 20 minute or so. A good way to get rid of too many potatoes. I try to do lots in one day, because it is boring work! I also freeze them in zip-lock bags to use just as hash browns.)

Thursday (Crock-pot Day)-Chili and Buns (or leftovers)

Friday-Crispy Baked Fish with Tropical Fruit Salsa, rice (I know I posted a breaded fish-type of recipe a few weeks back, and I want to apologize for doing so! This recipe, on the other hand, is AMAZING! and not so difficult. I often add other tropical fruits to the salsa, and corn kernels. My kids gobble it up. . .but they call it chicken with the fruit sauce. We don't correct them. If they are eating, they can call it whatever they want to. :)

Snack for Saturday-Birthday celebration over this way. . .so nothing to post yet. . .I have to do some thinking on this one yet. . .come back my way some time soon. . .

Sunday (Breakfast for Supper)- Apple Puff Pancake. My friend, Tara, recommended this one. She recommends some pretty good stuff. I am going to give it a try. The kids love pancakes, the kids love apples. . .what more could you ask for? Looks like a great recipe, and a fantastic blog!

*Go over to for more great MPs!
