Meal Plan Monday

by Julie Kohl on January 24, 2011

Last week I mentioned that I would be making a Pork and Chicken Tortilla Casserole.  This was a new recipe for us and I can not say enough good things about it! It was SOOOOO YUMMY! And it was so easy.  I used up some leftover pork from pork tenderloin we had had earlier in the week but I also cooked up one chicken breast because it just wasn’t quite enough pork.  The only change I would recommend from the published recipe is to leave out the 2 cups of chicken broth.  It seems that canned cream soups are much “runnier” than they were a few years ago and that may account for the difference or perhaps I just prefer a “drier” casserole.  We enjoyed this with some refried beans and fresh salsa.  I also topped my serving of casserole with a little sour cream and some cilantro.  The leftovers were also very good!

This week I start teaching art for the after-school program on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Since I wont get home from work until after 5:30 you may notice that Tuesday and Thursday dinner options are either something my husband can get started or something that is very simple and quick to make.

Mon – Ribeyes, Baked Potato, Creamed Spinach and Salad
Tues – TaterTot Casserole (From the freezer) and peas
Wed – Homemade Clam Chowder and Lobster Rolls
Thur – Hot Dogs and Mac&Cheese, Sauerkraut
Fri – chicken strips, loaded roasted potatoes, broccoli
Sat – ??? Richie may be going to a chess tournament in LR so this day is undecided.
Sun – Stuffed Chicken Parmesan, Salad,  fresh bread
