Menu Plan Monday - Week of March 9-15

Ahhh...the menu plan. I can't believe it is time for another week of this! I am happy to report that we did excellent with our plan last week. I am so happy to be out of my rut and to be trying new recipes. I am so grateful to orgjunkie for hosting this - it has been incredibly motivating!

**update:**My husband also informed me (in a nice way) that we need to have more people over for dinner and that I need to stop being obsessed about how clean my house must be in order to do this. Hmmmph. I agree we need fellowship a bit more...so we made an agreement - he will choose someone to invite over every Sunday for dinner. He will help clean on Saturday night and I have to make something decent! We'll see what this does to our budget!

Monday: Taco Salad

Tuesday: I have the Relief Society Birthday dinner at church, so hubby and the kids are going to hit McDonalds!

Wednesday: Meatloaf, twice baked potatoes, green beans (I did a one a month cooking thing and made a TON of twice baked potatoes and they are in the freezer, that is why they are on my menu so much!)

Thursday: Apricot Chicken, Rice, broccoli

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: This is a chuch activity where we are making pizzas - so we are skipping pizza night on Friday. We're bringing a bag of pepperoni!

Sunday: Parmesan chicken (this is a simple baked chicken recipe with chicken breast rolled in a mixture of Ritz crackers, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder), roasted asparagus, rolls of some sort, potatoes of some sort (I'm still working out the details :))

Sounds great! Can you share your twice baked potatoe recipe? Maybe you did and I'm not seeing it.
Thanks!

Liz - my twice baked potatoes are kind of a little bit of this little bit of that recipe.

I bake the potatoes in the oven, scoop out the insides and mash the insides in a bowl.

I add green onions, garlic powder, salt, pepper. I also add sour cream, cream cheese, and/or butter and mix very well.

Then I scoop them back into the potato skins. Then place on a baking sheet, add some grated cheese, and bake until the cheese is melted.

These are way yummy! Good luck.
