Menu Plan Monday Sept 29th

I feel like we had such a busy weekend, but nothing got done…

I did get my long run in with my cousin, but I had to take Sid with me.  After the run we enjoy some French pastries, because well, we’ve earned it.

I just love his face in this picture.  He kept doing his ‘happy food dance’ every time he took a bite of food.

 

 

Menu Plan 9/29-10/5

Mon: Crispy Chicken with Creamy Italian Pasta

Tues: Cheesy Meatloaf with Roasted Potatoes

Wed: Spaghetti or lasagna

Thr: Pizza

Fri: Leftovers

Sat: Kitchen is Closed!

Sun: 2AM Chili

 I have two things to say about the above chili recipe: 1) my husband said this chili was amazing! 2) that guy’s website/recipes are fantastic and if you haven’t been there go.  Now.  It’s ok, you’re done here.

 

Happy Cooking

Menu Plan Monday Sept 22nd

I have a confession to make: I don’t use cream of anything soup.

Last week‘s menu plan included a recipe for Crock Pot Bacon Ranch Chicken, which calls for cream of chicken soup and sour cream.  I didn’t have any sour cream on hand, and didn’t want to go to the store just for that.  Since I was making my own cream of chicken soup, I figured I could just add the brick of cream cheese I had in the fridge.  While making the soup, I added the cream cheese and cooked until it melted and was incorporated (this is also where I mixed in the Ranch Dressing and stuff).  I threw it all in the crock pot with my frozen chicken and cooked on low all dayish.

It was delicious!  I am sure the sour cream version would still be wonderful, but everyone really enjoyed this alteration.

Maybe I’ll make it again and share the recipe, or maybe I’ll just make it again and eat it.

Menu Plan Monday July 21st

Do you ever feel you need a vacation after  your vacation?

I do. Especially now that I am vacationing with a two-year-old (well almost 2) and a four-year-old.
