Menu Plan Monday

Last week for my new recipe I tried out this Chicken and Rice Casserole. It was so quick to make and yummy! Only problem I had was that I used brown rice instead of white, and I'm finding that the brown doesn't cook up well in casserole dishes. I also made Jello Jigglers (for the first time) with my daughter. What a fun meal time activity! I've got a very busy week coming up, so hopefully I will be able to manage my time wisely and get all of my meals cooked.

Monday~ Chicken nuggets, fries and veggies

Tuesday~ Pasta in a pot *new (recipe below) w/salad

Wednesday~ Marinated pork ribs on the grill, mashed potatoes, and carrots

Thursday~ Homemade macaroni and cheese, Parmesan chicken, peas w/bacon and onions

Friday~ Steak fajitas

Saturday~ Detroit Tigers game @ Yankee stadium ! My first ever major league game! It's an all day affair, so I'm assuming we'll be eating on the go.

Sunday~ Pot Roast

Desserts will be: Blueberry pie and ice cream
