Menu Plan Monday

Well, I didn't get to post my menu last week, but I wanted to mention that we had this Honey Chicken Stir-Fry one night and it was really good. Once again, my chef-in-training son made the sauce, so it is a quick and simple recipe that we all enjoyed! Since our hearts were in Ghana due to the week's events, we had Beef Congolaise (the only African dish I know how to make) using the recipe I posted here. It is so good, I encourage you to try it. It's so yummy, and very easy.

Our guys went on a fishing trip last week, so we will be incorporating fish into our weekly menus for awhile. While they were gone, my daughter and I enjoyed Chinese food, Sonic hamburgers and "junk," so I'm glad to be getting back in the kitchen! Here's what we'll be enjoying:

Monday: Ground Beef Baked Beans, tossed salad, hot bread
Tuesday: Baked Catfish, steamed vegetables, rice
Wednesday: Savory Chicken and Broccoli Bake , salad, bread
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Taco Soup with Romaine and Avocado Salad
Weekend: Leftovers, sandwiches, and out-to-eat after church

Taco Soup

2 lbs. ground beef (browned and crumbled)
1 can shoepeg corn
2 cans Rotel (I'll probably just use one)
2 cans pinto beans w/ jalopenos
2 cups water
1pkg taco seasoning
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing

Stir ingredients together until hot and simmer. Serve hot, garnish with shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

I'd love to read what you've got cookin' this week. Visit Laura's to share your menu and to read others. Have a blessed week around your table with those you love!

Oh, I love Catfish. Can I come over for dinner if I bring my own plate? My husband and son arent' fans so I don't serve it at home anymore.
You have a terrific Mother's Day!

Once again it looks like good eatin'. I like the idea of baked catfish. We're really trying to avoid fried foods. I may have to give that a try.
Have a good week Cyndi.
