Menu Plan Monday (Sunday)

I ended up changing things up a bit last week & instead of my Chicken & Rice bake on Tuesday, we instead ate the leftover rice (that we took to the ILs house the night before) with Pioneer Woman's Ranch-Style Chicken. I had a little leftover bacon & some cheddar, so it seemed like the perfect way to use up things that I already had in the fridge. Friday's plans were kind of sketchy & I ended up doing my first attempt at French Onion Soup using Pioneer Woman's recipe. It must have been good because between Friday's dinner and today's lunch, DH & I ate the whole thing! DH even told me that soups are definitely my specialty...I've now got chicken noodle, vegetable beef & French onion under my belt!

Sunday - I didn't know what to do for dinner (we knew we wanted to do something with chicken) so I typed "crusted chicken" into google and came up with this AWESOME recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken. Seriously - this recipe was amazing, pretty easy & by far the best chicken-finger type recipe I've had! My only complaint is that the recipe for the breading makes SO much & unless you keep it in a separate container (from what you're actually breading the chicken in) & add more as you need it, you'll end up wasting a lot. I might halve the breading recipe next time, because it really made a ton!
Monday - Pasta with marinara, garlic bread & salad
Tuesday - Family night w/ ILs
Wednesday - Wing Wednesday for DH, so I'll be on my own
Thursday - Herbed Chicken & Gravy with rice & salad
Friday - to be determined...maybe a beef stroganoff? Sounds good to me! :)

It's nearly 4pm and I haven't even done a menu plan for this week yet-- arrghh! I'm totally out of routine today. I will get mine put together this evening.

Yours looks great- and I might just have to try that parm chicken!

And by the way, have I mentioned how much I love the new-ish look of your blog? :)

That Parmesan chicken sounds very tasty! I'll have to give it a try. I have plenty of lemons on hand, too!

The rest of he week sounds tasty, too!

Oh....about the curriculum. So far it does not have him trying to string words together. I dictate a word and he writes far just 3 letter words. We slacked off some with hubby home, but we are about half way through it now. Last week Logan really took off with his reading, so I'm trying to keep it going strong. We are doubling up on our days (today we actually did 3) because I think it was moving a bit too slow for him.
