I meant to post this last night. And life keeps getting in the way of blogging.
We’ve been doing a pretty good job sticking to a plan each week. It’s helping in terms of time management (because we have no time) and with grocery costs. It’s also been fairly healthy. On Sunday, we had planned on making one of the chicken dinners listed below, but it wasn’t thawed in time…and we ended up eating at Zaxby’s. Menu plan fail. (We did, however, eat the grilled chicken at Zaxby’s, if that counts for anything. But then I also tried the fried pickles, so that canceled out all healthiness of the grilled chicken.)
That said, here’s a look at our menu, complete with links to recipes. And one recipe at the end.
Monday – chicken with tomato juice, vegetable (see the end of this post for a recipe. It’s super easy and good.)
Tuesday – Salad. Huge ones.
Wednesday – Company beans and rice
Thursday – Chicken Provencal, using a recipe out of the All You magazine.
Friday – pizza. I’m going to try one slice and see if the baby can handle the cheese. Wish us luck….(We also have a coupon to a local place, which is why we’re trying the pizza. Husband has been dying for pizza and I’m willing to try dairy now that the baby is over 6 months old.)
Saturday – Spaghetti. Red sauce for the husband. Pesto for me.
Chicken with the tomato juice – Place a few boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a pan (we usually do 4.) Cover with tomato juice and then sprinkle garlic powder, oregano and basil on top of the chicken. Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes.
The tomato juice left in the baking pan is good over noodles.
My mom used to make this when we were kids, and I forgot how easy it is to make.
