Menu Plan Monday – Nov. 8
Last week, I mostly stuck to our meal plan. The only thing I didn’t get around to was remaking a beef vegetable bake to be dairy free. Last night I went all out with roasted chicken with caramelized shallots, broccoli and baked potatoes and even made apple crisp! It was all pretty good. The apple crisp wasn’t the best but, it was my first time. All The cooking barely left me with enough energy to eat it all! My kids wear me out, I tell ya.
The southwest chicken pot pie was also pretty good. It came out too soupy so I’ll have to adapt it a little next time. I plan to add this to my freezer cooking menu. I’m going to attempt to collect recipes all this month and do a December freezer cooking menu for my family. It’s harder to find things since I can’t eat dairy right now. If you are interested in freezer cooking, check out my friend’s website, Once a Month Mom. She puts together a freezer cooking menu each month, complete with directions and shopping lists.
I don’t have many links this week as most of my recipes are coming from two cookbooks I got from the library (Saving Dinner: The Menus, Recipes and Shopping Lists to Bring your Family Back to the Table and Family Feasts for $75 a week)
Monday: House Church – taking salad
Tuesday: Mashed Potato Pie, green beans
Wednesday: Garlic Lime Chicken, broccoli and rice
Thursday: White Chicken Chili
Friday: Hamburgers and Cajun oven fries
Saturday: Breakfast –Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal
Dinner – Chicken Cacciatore over egg noodles
