Happy Monday everyone! Here is our menu for the week:
Monday: Chili and Cheese Baked Potatoes. I ended up not a making my chili until Saturday night, so we will use the last of the leftovers on potatoes.
Tuesday: Black Bean Soup and Quesadillas. I need to cook up a huge pot of black beans to replenish my freezer stock, so I have this planned for Tuesday and will save a few cups to make this soup. The recipe I am using is from my Vitamix cook book and also calls for a can of garbanzo beans. I only have a bag of dried garbanzos in the pantry, so I guess I will cook those too. (I can make hummus with the leftovers)
Thursday: Creamy Pasta with Chicken and Sun-dried tomatoes. This is just a simple pasta meal I am going to throw together using pre-cooked chicken from the freezer and some Philadelphia Cooking Creme I picked up a few weeks ago.
Friday: We are going to Jason’s Deli with the whole crew and then my hubby and I will go see a movie while Nana and Papa take the kids on a quick shopping trip.
Saturday: Leftovers. We will most likely have the rest of the crockpot chicken in a salad and quesadillas.
Sunday: Merry Christmas! We have a big holiday meal planned. I haven’t been to the store yet, but we are leaning towards ham instead of turkey…
I will be linking up to Menu Plan Monday over at Orgjunkie.com.
