Menu Plan Monday...

I can't believe it is Monday already. The weekend went by WAY too fast!! Last week I pretty much used only things we had on hand, aside from some fresh produce, and we are continuing that this week. Last week I made everything on the plan!!

Last week we tried the pretzel crusted chicken with cheddar mustard sauce. I really, really liked it! It does sound a bit strange with the onion and the sliced pickle (I used dill relish), but it was very, very good--and I typically don't like raw onion. I found that the blender worked really well for grinding up the pretzels. I used this mustard and used 3 T. instead of 2. I think it made the cheese sauce better. This will be a repeat in our house!!

*=new recipe
Monday--Swiss steak*, noodles, steamed Normandy veggies

Tuesday--almond chicken dijon*, macaroni and cheese with tomatoes* (just adding a can of drained diced tomatoes to it), green beans, garlic bread

Wednesday--burgers, salad, sweet potato fries

Thursday--pulled pork/steak tostadas (pork for me, steak for hubby--->I have corn tortillas to use up), rice and beans

Friday--Italian chicken, cheesy smashed potatoes*, salad

So, my shopping list for this week is very small--lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, and sour cream.
