Menu Plan Monday 9.23.13

I struggle so much with menu planning.  Once I do it though, I feel so much better having a plan.  I think it's because I suck at cooking.  There, I said it.  I suck at cooking.  It doesn't help that the kids are so picky and hate everything I make.  That's great for my cooking confidence, right?

This week we are having:

Monday - Cheeseburger Pie

Tuesday - Slow Cooker Hawaiian Luau Pork

Wednesday - Leftovers

Thursday - Some kind of chicken dish - not sure what yet.  Maybe chicken tacos? Will depend on what I have on hand.

Friday - pizza night

Saturday - Leftovers

What's on your menu this week?

Angel Chicken - YUM!

Way back when, I pinned a recipe for Angel Chicken on my pinterest boards.  I finally got around to trying it last week.  Boy, am I sorry I waited!  It was SO good!

As usual, I made way too much.  I pretty much always make enough to feed 3+ families.  It must be my Italian upbringing.  We didn't have enough spaghetti left to have it again as leftovers so we tried something different.  We made quesadillas!  Yep, I just plopped it on some tortilla shells, spread it around and sprinkled some cheddar cheese on it.  It was delicious!!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture, I had to grab a photo quickly before they were gone!

We also had it for lunch - we just rolled it up in some tortilla shells with some lettuce and BAM!  Angel Chicken Wraps. 

Once there wasn't enough left for more than one of us to have - we warmed it up and used it as a dip.  That's right.  DIP!  We dipped tortilla chips and Fritos in it.  This was pretty tasty and I'll have to remember this next time I have to take something to a pot luck. 

Needless to say, this recipe was a HUGE hit in our house.  Everyone loved it and the kids have already asked me to make it again.
