Menu Plan Monday

Gearing up for some good cooking this week! Amidst working on a crazy project for Once a Month Mom. Life is exciting!

Last week‘s highlight: All-American Chili was really good! I still have some leftover I need to use up though.

Lowlight: I was disappointed in the Slow Cooker Orange Chicken, especially since it got great reviews. It was too something–orangey, I guess. Not bad, but not something I would make again. 

I’m going to be at Blissdom on Friday and Saturday nights, so I’m leaving the cooking up to my mother-in-law those nights!


Saturday: London Broil with Buttered Potato and Caramelized Zucchini and Mushrooms (from Rachael Ray 365–it was yummy!) (Here’s a blog that posted the recipe.)

Sunday: leftovers we were stuffed from lunch at Red Lobster, so Mr. V had grilled cheese and I made an omelet. Which is what we always end up doing on Sundays!

Monday: Stewed Lentils and Tomatoes from Barefoot Contessa at Home, leftover London Broil. (Here’s Smitten Kitchen’s adaptation of the lentils.)

Tuesday: Chicken with White and Wild Rice Soup (also from Rachael Ray 365–I use this cookbook ALL THE TIME)

Wednesday: Leftover Buffet

Thursday: Ziti with Italian Sausage, Homemade Bread

  1. You have a delicious sounding week — and, last week — the Wild Rice Soup and Ziti sound like winners. Thanks for the links.

  2. I also didn't care for the flavor of that orange chicken, but I loved the easy prep and the breading. I tried it again doing the same method but using the sauce for Mongolian beef and it was REALLY good.
