Menu Plan Monday

Monday


Here’s what we are having for dinner this week:

Monday: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (recipe below) – I made TONS, so we will have this several nights this week. My sinuses are feeling MUCH better after the massive amounts of onions, garlic and pepper. :)

Tuesday: Probably leftover soup (to continue to help the sinuses).

Wednesday: Grilled steak, baked potatoes and grilled yellow squash

Thursday: Pan-seared tilapia fillets, rice pilaf (I just put carrots and corn in with the rice), and fruit salad.

Friday: Leftover Chicken Noodle Soup

Saturday: Out to eat for my birthday!! :)

Sunday: Bacon wrapped chicken with cream cheese and jalapenos, mashed potatoes, and salad. (Recipe to come later!)


Here’s how I made my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup:

First I boiled two small whole chickens in a large pot, along with a good amount of sea salt and pepper.

Then I cut up 3 onions, a bag of carrots, 2 yellow squash and a bag of celery. I also minced 1 1/2 bulbs of garlic.

After the chickens were done boiling, I took them out to let them cool and put the onions, carrots, squash, celery and garlic into the pot of boiling broth.

Once I finished deboning the chicken, I put the pieces back into the pot, along with 2 bags of whole wheat spaghetti noodles.

Then I let it cook until the noodles were done.

You can also add extra seasonings such as Thyme or Rosemary if you want to. I chose to just make it with salt and pepper and we LOVED it!

When you have a sinus infection or a cold, it is definitely worth it to take the time to make homemade chicken noodle soup! I’m always glad when I do!

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday


It’s Sunday night again and time to think about what we are going to have this next week. We have saved tons of money since I have been meal planning and I really love it! Most days I forget what we are having and have to read my Menu Plan Monday post again! :)

Monday: Chicken Parmesan with pasta and marinara sauce and green beans

Tuesday: Mac and Cheese and Sausage (mixed together) and broccoli (on the side)

Wednesday: Eating with friends and then watching LOST!  (I watched the first episode of Lost just to see what all the hype was about and I was hooked immediately.  If you want to watch Lost but haven’t started yet, it’s probably best to wait until the show has ended to start because we are in Season 5 now and still have NO CLUE what is going on!!)

Thursday: Layered Tijuana Casserole in the Crock Pot

Friday: Possibly out to eat with an Entertainment Book coupon! (Which you can get at 35% off right now!)

Saturday: The Chicken and Sausage Gumbo that I didn’t make last week. (One of my friends said that she had NEVER had gumbo… have you guys had gumbo before? We had it pretty often growing up.)

Sunday: Leftovers!

  1. Krisi and Adam says:

    I had never had gumbo until I married my husband (who is from Louisiana) – we live in CA now. It is REALLY good.

  2. I love Lost!! Only I don’t have any friends close enough to watch it with (i live in the sticks) Sounds like a fun party though!
