Menu Plan Monday

Another week gone by, and I swear, this new week is the one where I get my act together!! I bought a Gazelle almost two weeks ago, swearing that I'm going to use it religiously and get into shape. I haven't got on it once yet... this is the week.

Recipes are below!!

Sunday: Tomato and Cheese Quesadillas

Monday: Spaghetti Pizza

Tuesday: BLT's

Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken Thighs with Potatoes

Thursday: Crockpot Mac & Cheese

Friday: Bacon Chicken

Saturday: Crockpot Baked Ziti

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!!


Spaghetti Pizza
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 package (16 ounces) cooked spaghetti
1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
1 jar (28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni
1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion
Garlic salt to taste
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Add spaghetti; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with the beef, spaghetti sauce, pepperoni, mushrooms and onion. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

Crock Pot Mac & Cheese
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. minced onion
1/2 tsp. paprika
3 c. milk
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 c. uncooked elbow mac

Spray crock pot with non-stick spray. Combine flour, salt, pepper, onion, paprika and milk in a saucepan. Whisk until there are no lumps, keep heating until starts to thicken and boil. Add cheese and mac. Stir til well mixed and pour into the crock pot. Cook on low 2-3 hours.

Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken (from Full Bellies)
4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (12 pieces)
Bacon slices
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder
chili powder
brown sugar

Cut each breast into 3 pieces, season all the chicken with the spices, then wrap a bacon slice around each piece, roll in brown sugar and place into an oven proof dish....make sure you have some olive oil in the dish too, like 2 or 3 tablespoons is fine. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy.
