First I'll say, I'm having a hell of a time getting it together this week. It seems like I'm repeating myself every other week or so and I'm so tired of it. I love love love MPM, it keeps me organized, it keeps me from spending too much and I get new recipes from the other participants, but what's driving me absolutely batty is the people who don't link or share recipes in the list. I'm not saying share a grilled cheese sandwich recipe. I'm saying share a recipe if the meal's name sounds like something someone can't figure out on their own! I feel like I'm missing out on lots of great meals here!!
Couple of carryovers this week, we went out to dinner with my parents one night and then I forgot that I had plans with friends last night... I can't complain though, carryovers make this weeks menu plan that much easier!!Recipes are below!!
Monday: Bacon Veggie Skillet
Tuesday: Turkey Club Pie
Wednesday: Honey BBQ Chicken Wings
Thursday: Hot Dogs & Macaroni Salad
Friday: Pasta with meat sauce
Saturday: Crockpot Honey Mustard Chicken
Sunday: Pesto Pasta
Once again, breakfasts are usually cold cereal, oatmeal and sometimes Boug just wants toast and a banana! Lunches usually are leftovers or sandwiches paired with yogurt or fruit generally. My meals are usually a bit heavier in meats and chickens as hub is a butcher and brings so much home for free or next to nothing!! Check out more Menu Plan Monday entries at orgjunkie!!
Bacon and Veggie Skillet: (from Kraft)
4 slices cooked chopped bacon
1 med. onion
1 can chicken broth
2 c. elbow macaroni
4 c. mixed veggies
4 oz. cream cheese
2 tbsp. parm cheese
Cook bacon, then cook the onion in the bacon grease. Add 1 c. water, chicken broth and macaroni to skillet. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes. Add in veggies and cream cheese. Cook til melted and heated through. Top with bacon and parm cheese.
Turkey Club Pie:
1.5 c. cut up cooked turkey
8 slices crispy, crumbled, cooked bacon
1 c. cheddar cheese
1/2 c. bisquick
1 c. milk
Preheat oven to 400. Combine turkey, bacon and cheese in a pie plate. Combine bisquick, milk and eggs, pour on top of other ingredients already in pie plate. Bake 30-35 minutes, I like to top mine with sliced tomato and sliced red onion for the last 15 minutes of the bake time.
Honey BBQ Chicken Wings (From MomAdvice)
3 lbs chicken wings (purchased in the frozen section of Aldi)
1 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
Season wings with salt & pepper. Place frozen wings on broiler pan and broil for 12-15 minutes on each side. Transfer wings to the slow cooker. Combine ingredients and pour over wings. Cook on high two hours or low for four hours.Pasta with Meat Sauce:
To be honest I will throw whatever cut of beef that I have in the freezer in the crockpot with a jar of sauce, I let it go about 6-7 hours and by the time I prepare dinner, the beef is all shredded and I just put it on top of some pasta!
Crockpot Honey Mustard Chicken: (from Eat At Home)
1/2 C. Honey
1/4 C. dijon mustard
2-3 lbs chicken (your choice)
salt & pepper to taste
Mix the honey, mustard, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Put the chicken in the crockpot and pour the mixture over the top. Cook on high for 6-8 hours.
