Menu Plan Monday January 3rd - 9th
Make sure you check out Menu Plan Menu at orgjunkie.com!!!
Monday - Since I messed up my menu last week, we had the 40 Clove Slow Cooker Chicken last night. Tonight, we'll have the Wild Rice Chicken with Pearl Onions with green salad.
Tuesday - Crock Pot Roast Chuck with potatoes and carrots
Wednesday - Crab Fettuccine Alfredo
Thursday - BBQ Beef sandwiches with Mom's Buns, green beans, and sweet potato fries. I'll be using the leftover beef, but smothered in bbq sauce from the crock pot for this one and just simmering it in a sauce pan.
To make the sweet potato fries, just slice a few sweet potatoes or yams in thin slices and sprinkle with a little salt (optional, but I like coarse sea salt on mine). Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly brown and slightly crisp, turning over halfway through.
Friday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, served with garlic bread and salad
Saturday - Beef Burritos
I'm making my own flour tortillas!
Sunday - Chicken Fajitas - cut chicken breast or tenders into narrow strips and cook until brown and tender. Add vegies such as bell pepper, sweet onion, celery, carrot strips, etc to a fry pan and sautee on medium heat with a little olive oil that has been heated. Add chicken and toss with coarse sea salt, paprika, and pepper to taste. Add fresh, chopped cilantro to the fajitas just after filling the tortilla with vegie and chicken mixture.
So...what do ya think? Are you going to or thinking of using any of these recipes this week or next? Let me know!
