Monday Menu



Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I didn't post my menu last week, but here are some of the highlights (for those collecting recipe ideas).

Bar-b-cups (My son requests these every week. Every week.)
Crock Pot Chicken Parmigiana (ALWAYS turns out great!)
Crock Pot Ham and Scalloped Potatoes (from FIFI but this is the same recipe)

Our mozzarella sticks from Deceptively Delicious the week before last turned out great, too. What a fun way to eat cauliflower! We're enjoying this book. It's got great recipes, but also a wealth of nutrition information and suggestions.

Speaking of nutrition, I might not always post it with my recipes, but all of what I cook works with low-fat, healthy choice, low sodium soups, broths, and mixes, whole wheat pasta, whole wheat tortillas, etc. That's all I buy anymore, we've noticed no difference... and things are a bit healthier!

Monday:
B- jelly toast, bacon
L- Baked Potatoes
D- Quick Cheeseburger Bake (made with Bisquick Heart Smart)

Tuesday:
B- whole wheat waffles
L- BBQ brisket, macaroni, mixed veggies
D- Chicken Spaghetti, green beans, salad, bread

Wednesday:
B-sausage biscuits, fruit
L-roast chicken chimichangas (I simplify this recipe and it is SO good!)
D- baked fish

Thursday:
B- cinnamon toast, eggs
L- turkey burgers, sweet potato fries
D- leftovers

Friday:
B- cereal
L- YOYO (you're on you're own)
D- crock pot French Onion Soup <---from my FIFI cookbook, but similar to this recipe

Please visit Laura to share your menu or read others for some great ideas. Have a yummy week!

Wow I have heard great things about that book Deceptively Delicious. I had a friend tell me about it this weekend and mention the mozzerella sticks too! I am going to have to try it out.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comment. I am glad you did so I could find your blog. I am now going to check out your recipes.
Blessings,

Thanks for visiting my site Cyndi. Your menu looks great as well. I love the YOYO thing..I may use that term. We too are trying to change things up nutritionally. I absolutely love chimichangas! Several years ago I found a way to make them at home in my oven and still got the "crispy" taste that I love. Can't wait to browse your site more! Be blessed
