Menu Plan Monday

It is really hard to believe that we are more than half way through January already. Weren't we just on winter break? Life is starting to get busy again as we enter the new year. The kids are in swim lessons, my son plays soccer and is having baseball practice, and my son has been going to youth group with a couple of friends. All but soccer occur during the evening and so we have to be a little creative in timing for meals to allow everyone to get to their activities.

Trying new recipes last week was so much fun and a real taste treat that I decided to do it again this week. There are a few familiar favorites mixed in, but also some new to us recipes. I will post my favorite recipes, the real keepers over on my cooking blog: A Busy Mom of Two in the Kitchen - I just can't promise how quickly they will go up.

It's shaping up to be a cold week here. Glad I put chili and soup on the menu plan this week!

Shrimp in a Creamy Tomato Sauce, with spaghetti


Chili - Skyline chili knock-off recipe

Buffalo Chicken Soup

Breakfast for dinner - Homemade Hash browns and eggs

Parmesan Encrusted Chicken


As we are now back in school, the kids either pack or buy the hot lunch at school. My husband and I rely on leftovers, frozen meals and lunch meetings for lunch.
