Menu Plan Monday

UPDATE- I updated my menu, I'm not sure why because I doubt any of you really care whether or not I changed it. :-) But anyways, my pregnancy brain forgot that I had bought all of the stuff for a chicken casserole (Which is so easy and yummy! Click the link below for the recipe!). I bought enough chicken to make chicken salad! I cut out the tuna melts, which I'm sure we'll have next week.... and we had the chicken wraps for lunch yesterday. No harm, no foul.. actually lots of foul this week.... HAHAHA, get it.. chicken/foul. OK, that was lame.

Well, I'm gonna attempt to start my menu's back today! My grocery budget has gone out the window so I've really got to get back to planning. Since I'm feeling lots better (tummy wise) I've been cooking more... (I am suffering from frequent headaches at the moment though... ahh!!) I actually made green beans (frozen) last week and cut up an onion to put in it. R walked by me as I was chopping the onion and looked at me like I was crazy. I knew he was surprised to actually see me using some form of cooking skill. BTW, have I ever told you how I make green beans? Now, I love me some fresh gb's but I use frozen a lot too. I buy the long whole gb's frozen, heat up some olive oil in a pan, chop an onion (I like big chunks) and normally add fresh garlic, although my taste buds have been keeping me away from the garlic these days. I saute the onion a few minutes and then dump in the green beans w/ some salt & pepper. Put a lid on for 5-7 minutes and then remove the lid for maybe 5 more (this helps to remove moisture, so they are kind of crisp). Sometimes I add a little butter at the end too.. you know, when I'm feeling Paula Deen-ish! Anyway, they are SO good! :)

So here's my menu... mind you, this one was a thrown together at the last minute kind of thing. I've got to get back into the hang of this!

Monday- Chicken Spaghetti, Salad (we had this tonight.. and Luke ate some! I was sooo surprised)

Wednesday- Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Green Beans

Thursday- Mexican Pizza

Friday- Tacos

Saturday- leftovers
