Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday is sponsored by I'm an Organizing Junkie. Won't you join us?

Monday - Texas Chili - It's so easy! Put chicken breasts in the crockpot. Add corn and/or black beans. Cover with Pace Picante Sauce. Turn it on in the morning, and it's ready when you get home. The chicken stays so tender. We eat it with tostadas or white rice and usually put some grated cheese on top.

Tuesday - Grilled tilapia (frozen) and crunchy fish fillets for the kids. We'll have some Velveeta shells and cheese and probably carrots with this.

Wednesday - I'm eating at the hospital because I will be there all day with my mom. The kids have a variety of lovely choices for dinner. Grilled cheese sandwiches and soup. Chicken tenders. Frozen lasagna. Their choice.

Thursday - Grilled chicken wraps. I pan-grill the chicken in a little olive oil with some Italian seasoning. We wrap our chicken in flour tortillas made fresh in the Kroger deli by our house. Add some bell pepper, lettuce, tomato, and ranch dressing. For sides, we'll have rice and maybe green beans.

Friday - I am not cooking! This is pizza night, so we will either order in or go out.

Have a great week everyone! Don't forget to check out other MPM's here.
