Menu Pan Monday

welcome back to menu plan monday! i'm actually on top of things this week and have my menu finished before the week begins. nice, huh? as i look toward cutting back my hours at work, i'm excited to be more organized at home. that's definitely not my strength, but now that i have "more time," maybe it will happen some . . .

monday -- lemon-pepper chicken, rice and broccoli. michael had this last week while i was "retreating," but it's easy and he likes it, so i can make it again without complaints.

tuesday -- chicken fettuccini alfredo, salad. not the lowest-in-fat, but a definite favorite around our house. i've never tried this recipe, but it got some great reviews.

wednesday -- pepperoni pizza roll, salad. desiree introduced me to this recipe and we enjoyed it. it's pretty simple and my husband loves pepperoni -- it's a winner!

thursday -- texas BBQ chicken, green beans and rolls. my mother-in-law makes a grand appearance in our lovely state thursday afternoon. what better welcome could there be than a good southern home-cooked meal?

friday & saturday -- i'm leaving these open because sometime always happens to throw off my menu. and with momma c in the house, she just might want to do a little cooking herself. or, we'll go out one night. or we'll eat left-overs. you get the idea. if we need, i can throw together a chicken pot pie something.

sunday -- the balsamic chicken and spring vegetables i didn't make last week. miss clappyshoes herself will be making a visit (four adults and one baby will make for a crowded apartment!) for two nights before we're both off to retreat again (this time for three nights!) i'm really looking forward to spending time with her -- and showing off my mad skills in the menu planning/crock potting arena.
