Menu Plan Monday

Time for this weeks menu!

We'll be having:

Mexican Penne. This is one of the easiest dishes I make and since I have to run to the grocery store today I want something simple to make when I get home!


Easy Side Potatoes

Today I'd like to share a recipe for a side dish that I love for many reasons; it is easy, I always have the ingredients on hand, and it tastes delicious!

I serve these up when I make steaks, london broil, grilled chicken, even fish, it goes with just about everything.

Here is what you need to get started:


Steak Layered Dinner

Today is Slow Cooking Thursday over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom! Check her blog out for some awesome recipe ideas!

Although I'm a day late, it was also What's on the Menu Wednesday over at Dining with Debbie, and of course Works for me Wednesday at We are THAT Family. There are already a ton of great recipes and ideas on both of those sites from yesterday, check them out!

This is almost crockpot gourmet! I mean, who knew you could have steak, shrimp, potatoes, and corn on the cob out of a slow cooker!? The greatest thing about it was it's simplicity and the ability to sub ingredients for whatever you are in the mood for.

Salisbury Steak From a Packet!!

Today is the Ultimate Recipe Swap over at Life as Mom! She's asked for recipes that use 5 ingredients or less, and I thought I would highlight an old recipe that never fails me!!

This is my all time favorite dinner, no joke. Which is also why I am linking up with It's a Keeper which is being guest hosted over at B & the boy!! I could probably live off of this meal and nothing else! It's funny to realize that now, because growing up my mom made it about once a week and I got so sick of it that I never wanted to eat it! To go straight to the recipe, click here!

The great thing about this recipe is that it takes so little to make something so tasty! Here is what you need:


American Chop Suey

This recipe is a great standby for me because I always have all of the ingredients on hand and it always goes over really well with my boys.

Here is what you need:
  • 1lb ground turkey (or beef)
  • Small chopped onion
  • Chopped medium bell pepper
  • Sprinkle garlic powder
  • Sprinkle paprika 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of cheese
  • 1 can tomato poaste
  • 1 can diced or crushed tomatoes (15oz)
  • 2 cups cooked macaroni


Back to Blogging - Menu Plan Monday

Well, it's been awhile! I took a long break from blogging but I am hoping to get back into the swing of things and what better way than to start off the week with our Menu Plan!

This week we'll be having:


Sweet and Sour Chicken

I've been making this recipe for over a year now and it is by far my favorite sweet n sour chicken recipe - it beats out Wanchai Ferry and any packet you may buy (trust me I've tried quite a few varieties) and it is super easy!! I am linking up (a day late!) with the Tuesday Lineup of Bloggers: Tasty Tuesday, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, and Tuesdays at the Table! Thanks to all of you for hosting!

Here's what you'll need to get started:
Cut up chicken (this is about 1.5lbs), 2 teaspoons cornstarch, 1 egg white. All you'll need to do here is mix the cornstarch and egg white (also can add a little salt here but I always forget) and pour it over the chicken, mix it in well and then let the mix rest for 15 minutes.
