Menu Plan Monday - Too Much Chicken!

Happy Monday!

This week's menu planning was particularly difficult, because as I looked through my freezer, I found chicken, chicken and more chicken...VERY strange for us, as we've had two + years of having half a pig in our freezer, and hubby's family raise beef...

So, I managed to make a menu plan that only had chicken 1 time per day (minus Friday, which we try to do meatless year round)

Monday - Salad with Canned Salmon
Crock pot Moroccan Chicken with Couscous (Split Chicken Breast from SHARE)

Tuesday - Meatless Spaghetti with any leftover salad
Chicken Enchiladas (I don't have a recipe yet...just a baggie of precooked chicken and some green enchilada sauce in the pantry...I'll need to make tortillas for this, too!) with Spanish Rice (from SHARE)

Wednesday - Frozen Pizza with Carrots and Celery (Hubby has training out of town, so this will just be me and the girls)
Marinated Lime Chicken (using boneless, skinless chicken breasts from the freezer) with Crescent Rolls and Veggies

Thursday - Barbecue Crock pot Chicken (rest of boneless skinless chicken breasts) with veggies
Bratwurst (from SHARE) Potato and Sauerkraut Skillet Dinner (I'm making this one up as I go!)

Friday - Pancakes with Fruit
Salmon, Rice-a-roni and Veggies

Saturday - Fend For Yourself/Leftovers

After this menu, I'll be down to one baggie of precooked chicken, a package of bacon, a package of ham hocks and 9 hamburger patties (from SHARE) I guess I may have to do some meat shopping before too long!

More menus up at OrgJunkie!

Hi! Sounds good, I'm so impressed that you make your own tortillas. That sounds difficult to me.

And I'm dying to know about the cast saga. Did the new splint last. How is your little girl?

Tortillas aren't particularly hard...they are just time consuming (that being said, I make flour tortillas and have never attempted corn...too many specialized ingredients for me!)

As for Charlotte's arm, she's doing pretty well. The nice thing about the splint is that we were able to unwrap it and give her a bath (her arm was getting GROSS!) and put on another wrap, so that she has one to wash and one to wear...of course, the one that was clean Saturday night is now gross, so probably tomorrow we'll do the whole bath thing again.

This experience has made me very thankful that I have never been ambitious enough to have baths for the girls as a part of their bedtime routine! I can't imagine trying to bathe a baby with a broken arm every night!

Hi, I came across your site searching for recipes and saw your comments about bathing a baby with a broken arm being tough - it is! My 4 yr old daughter broke her wrist 2 weeks ago and she has a full (purple) arm cast up to her shoulder! I can't wait until it's off on May 1st. I bought a cast cover so she can take a bath without getting it wet, but I'm sure it's getting stinky in there! Hope your baby heals fast!
