Monday Meal Plan
Last weeks meal plan went very well. Every thing I planned for we ate. I did try a new recipe last week Chicken Tetrazzini. The original recipe is from the happy house wife (link posted below). I didn't have some of the ingredients so I did some altering which is listed in blue. This is the sauce before I added the noodles. It was so delicious the best I have had and made. I have really been looking for a yummy white sauce dish like this. Its defiantly going into our family favorites!
Sorry this picture isn't from the same night we ate it. I forgot to get a picture because we were so hungry and baby was crying. That always make for a fast supper, so this is my lunch the next day. I wanted to get a picture because I loved the look of the carrots in this recipe!! Hubby didn't even know there was carrots in it. He thought it was cheese that wasn't melting. For a better picture and the original recipe jump over to the happy house wife.
Also this week I tried to make some bagels. I didn't think that they turned out that great because I had some problems with the bread machine and I didn't follow the recipe. I thought 3 cups of white flour wouldn't be good so I tried to add 1 cup of 12 grain flour. This made the dough very heavy. Needless to say I continued on with the project and got 7 bagels out of the batch. Hubby tried one this morning and actually like them. So I will have to keep trying...any advice??
Also this weekend we had some men over to help my husband build us a new deck. So of course I had to think of a meal that would feed them all. What better then a pot of chili (made in the crock pot allowing me to spend some gal time at the mall) and cornmeal muffins. The recipe I used for the muffins makes 24 large muffins and 12 small ones. They taste very yummy and not to sweet.
So this weeks looks like this...
Sunday: Meeting after church
Monday: Out for supper
Tuesday: BBQ chicken on garlic toast
Wednesday: Meat Loaf, baked potatoes and squash
Thursday: Chili Cheese Fries
Saturday: Out for supper
