Menu Plan Monday: 7/20-7/26

I managed to plan out this week's menu in record time. Lately, I've really had to rack my brain to figure it all out. The main dish isn't such a problem, it's figuring out all the side dishes!

The menu is definitely subject to change this week. Our daughter was supposed to stay with her grandma for several days this week, but that was continent upon a week-long road trip that my son, hubs, and his dad were going on. They were planning on leaving sometime in the middle of the week once they picked a date. But now it looks like there might be a problem with fundage. So they may or may not go, which means I may or may not be flying solo this week.

Monday--Pineapple Beef Kabobs, Cantaloupe, Sliced Zucchini Bake
This is our weekly Family Home Evening night. We'll be learning about keeping the Sabbath Day holy.

Tuesday--Ham Steak & Eggs, Cantaloupe, Mixed Vegetables, Biscuits
Hubs has a meeting at church. Should not interfere with dinner.

Wednesday--Grilled Citrus Chicken, Vegetable Ribbon Salad, BBQ Beans, Corn on the Cob

Thursday--Chicken Broccoli & Cornbread Casserole, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Vegetables Sicily

Friday--Chicken Fingers With Dipping Sauce, Sautee'd Apples, Summer Squash Casserole

Saturday--Slow-Cooked Pork Tacos, Braised Rice, Broccoli & Squash

Sunday--Marinated Shrimp on the Barbie, Garlic Peas, Eggplant Parmesan, Watermelon

  3. Do you have the recipe for Chicken Broccoli & Cornbread Casserole? Sounds yummy!!

  4. Becca,
    The Chicken Broccoli & Cornbread Casserole for this week is actually a pre-made meal that came from one of my monthly orders from Angel Food Ministries, so no recipe. But here's a recipe for a similar meal that I got from a friend:

    Chicken & Broccoli Casserole
    1 pkg stuffing mix (you could use the cornbread-flavored kind)
    cooked, cubed chicken
    broccoli (if fresh, then lightly steam; if frozen, you can thaw it or leave it frozen)
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can cream of celery soup
    sour cream
    shredded cheese
    crushed croutons
    Prepare stuffing as directed; spread into a baking pan. Layer on chicken, then broccoli. In a bowl, mix together both soups plus a large spoonful of sour cream. Spread mixture over broccoli. Add shredded cheese to top, then sprinkle on crushed croutons (optional, but adds a nice crunch). Bake at 350 until hot and bubbly.

  5. I notice you have 3 nights of chicken dishes. We too eat a lot of chicken. My kids don't care for meat, so it's either chicken or fish.

  6. I've tried to limit the amount of red meat dishes we eat to about 1 per week. Hubs, who was a "meat & potatoes" guy when we were first married, made a complete turn-around at some point in our marriage due to all the chicken meals I've made. I can definitely tell the difference if we go out to eat (a very rare occurrence now). Before: steak and potatoes. Now: chicken and salad. I guess that's a compliment; he'd rather eat healthy than clog his arteries with cholesterol. :)
