Menu Monday

Our menu for the week:

Thursday: Broiled Tilapia, baked sweet potatoes, green beans

Friday: Cheesy Spaghetti Squash, breadsticks
- This was a new recipe for me and while Sydney and I ate it, the boys (the little boys, Ryan wasn't home) wouldn't touch it, but then again, they're pretty picky eaters. I might just go back to serving spaghetti squash with marinara sauce.

Saturday: Leftovers (very exciting, I know)

Monday: Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

Tuesday: Roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, peas
- I shred the leftover chicken and freeze it for use in future dishes. If you want a laugh, you can read about my first experience making this chicken here. I am happy to report that I can now make it without gagging at all.

Wednesday: Green Bean Okazu over rice
- This one sounds like an odd combination of ingredients, but it really does taste good. And it gets my kids to eat fresh green beans which is a miracle.


  1. lol at your first chicken post...without even having to read it again...LOL!

  2. I have a great roasted chicken recipe that I like, but it requires that you cut out the backbone of the chicken. I hate, hate, hate that part. Feels like I'm doing an autopsy. But, the chicken is to die for and we eat off of 1 chicken for at the very least 3 meals. It's awesome. I might have to borrow your "Menu Monday".

  3. Oooh, Jenny, must have that recipe! (I'll make Ryan fix that one, though!)
