weekly menu plan

Remembering I have a blog today so that I can participate in the great menu exchange! :-) This is not meant to be a week of healthy meals, but of tried-and-true family favorites. So here goes!

Monday
Killer White Chili served with crushed tortilla chips and corn bread. This recipe comes from a fabulous bridal shower gift I received 9 years ago...everyone at work put together a recipe book with their favorites, and this has been our fave from the bunch so far.

1 large jar, Great Northern Beans
1 lb chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1 tsp cumin
1 small jar salsa
8 oz pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 can beer (optional)

Throw it all in a crock pot and cook on low all day. Tastes better the 2nd and 3rd time you reheat!

Tuesday
Pizza Pasta Casserole. Make an extra for next week!

Wednesday
Crispy Baked Pesto Chicken.

Thursday
Marvellous Mini Meatloaves. We prefer the Italian and BBQ versions.

Friday
We don't cook on Fridays. It just doesn't happen. Or really much on the weekends, if I'm being honest. But in the spirit of sharing, I'll do my best. :-)

Sweet and Tangy Chicken. Dubbed "chicken meal" in college, it is a long-time favorite for over a decade.

Saturday
Tony's Famous Cheeseburgers. Unfortunately, I can't divulge this secret under penalty of death by my husband. ;-) Here's what I can share: low fat ground beef, bread crumbs, A1, and a little Garlic Garlic or Onion Onion (but not both) from Tastefully Simple. Mix it by hand like a meatloaf, form patties, and grill to medium. Add cheese. Serve on Aunt Millie's wheat buns. I prefer mine with just ketchup and bread & butter pickles. Patties are generally too large for a side, but go great with a pasta salad or wedge fries.

Sunday
One-Pan Pork Roast With Parmesan Fries. Yum.

in love

with my new family photos, courtesy of April Harnish Photography! I signed us up for a Mommy & Me session as a gift to myself for Mother's Day, and then I thought it would be the perfect time to have some pics taken of me with MY mom...so we did! I can't wait to have them printed and framed...but first I have to decide which ones I want! Tough decision!
