Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you had a terrific weekend!

Let me just recommend Taste of Home's Southwestern Fish Tacos again. We had them last week, and they are wonderful. The recipe recommends haddock or orange roughy, but I have a fisherman who loves to bring home catfish and sand bass and this recipe works great with those. It is lighter than a beef dish, easy, and very quick! (It would also work great with tilapia fillets.) My husband asked me to write out the recipe for him last week after we had them so he could share it with a fishing buddy whose freezer is also full of fish. (And you know when guys are exchanging recipes, it must be good!) My kids also love them.

Also, this Chicken Spaghetti recipe worked *great* in the crock pot last week. I added extra cans of each of the soups, and added a can of low-sodium chicken broth, and it stayed really creamy until we were ready for dinner (which turned out to be late, as my sweet husband unexpectedly had to work late.) It turned out so good, he took leftovers to work for lunch twice!

Okay, here's what we've got cookin' this week:

Monday: Bar-b-cups, green beans, corn
Tuesday: order pizza
Wednesday: Chicken Pesto Panini sandwiches (on the George Foreman grill), Baked Potato soup
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: African Chicken Treat, rice, stir-fried veggies
Weekend: Leftovers, sandwiches, out to eat after church

Be sure to stop by Laura's for more menu plans, or to share your own. I hope you're stirring up some fun at your house this week!

Everything sounds delicious Cyndi, and as long as you can't actually come and cook for me I may very well try the fish tacos. We love seafood and you make this one sound so good.
Thanks much. Have a blessed week!

I've needed some new ideas for this hot summer weather here in Okinawa. Thank you! They look delicious :)
