Menu Plan Monday – Frugal Novice

Menu Plan Monday

I’ve decided to start participating in Menu Plan Monday. I already do a menu plan each week when I create my grocery list, so I thought it’d be fun to add my list to the… list. (I like lists.)

Monday: Chicken Enchilada Casserole (one of our favorites! You can find the recipe here – I add in sour cream and a can of rotel for a little extra kick)

Tuesday: Casserole leftovers – that recipe makes a good-sized dish! We’ll have it for lunch Tuesday, too.

Wednesday: Chicken Piccata with green beans. We use the Macaroni Grill boxed meal for this – it is SO good! I think most people would never guess it came from a box (except for the chicken, which you provide).

Thursday: Whole-Grain penne pasta with Bertolli Four-Cheese sauce and lean ground beef; glazed carrots (a favorite recipe from Melissa d’Arabian on the Food Network)

Friday: Leftovers – pasta & carrots

Saturday: Kung Pao chicken with peanuts, carrots, & rice

    lol you break the rule in our house- we cant have the same thing two nights in a row, leftovers have to be spaced out! I love to make extra food tho. Used to be when I made extra food, hubby would eat more than he shouldve ! I make sure he doesnt now tho! That or I quickly hide the leftovers in the fridge and then tell him dinner is served lmao Your food sounds awesome ! Have you tried the 100 days of real food challenge?
