Menu Plan 11/16-11/22

I know, I know this is a day late - sorry about that! My husband wrote such a sweet and moving post on our family blog that I decided this was the week to put up the new blog and it took me until today to get around to it - hey, give a 37 week pregnant lady a break already! Here is our menu this week...mostly easy (refer back to the 37 weeks pregnant reference).

Monday: Turkey chili dogs, homemade sweet potato fries and fresh fruit
Tuesday: Tortellini, Salad and bread
Wednesday: Baked Potatoes and Chef salad
Thursday: Sante Fe Soup and cornbread muffins
Friday: Cream Cheese Chicken crescents and salad
Saturday:BBQ Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese and green beans
Sunday: Beef Stew and Crusty Bread

Baking: I think we'll make some classic chocolate chip cookies this week along with some homemade bread for the stew on Sunday. The last time I made homemade bread it was a disaster so here's hoping I can do better this time around!

The new format will be posting the recipe to each item as I make it as well as a review. Some things are old, family favorites and others will be new recipes that we'll decide whether or not to add into the mix! I always welcome any questions, critiques, suggestions, you name it and I look forward to hearing everything ya'll have to say.

I'm not even going to bother with a post about monday's meal - I totally cheated. I didnt get to the grocery store for this week until today so last night I used a package of Turkey Hot Dogs and a can of 98% fat free turkey chili to make chili dogs. I then cut up a sweet potato, tossed it with salt, pepper and garlic powder and tossed it in the oven to make fries. Voila - dinner. Hey, the boys were more than happy to have hot dogs. We'll try to make up for that with the rest of the week.

Happy Cooking!
