Menu Plan Monday - Sept. 13

Reviews from last week:

The jalapeno popper chicken was awesome! I've recently found the pleasure in jalapenos and have this strange desire to put them in everything. The jalapeno popper chicken was a good combination between spicy, creamy, and salty. Perfect!

The crockpot peppercorn steak was pretty good. I wouldn't say it was my favorite meal of the week, but it wasn't bad. I put red, yellow, orange, and green peppers in it and I think the peppers gave it too much of a sweet taste. There was a lot of the sauce part left, which I froze to use as a base for soup later.

The stuffed shells were very good. The recipe calls for a 9X13 pan. I made two 8x8 pans and froze one. It took me about 30 minutes to prepare and cost around $5.50. That's pretty good for two meals!

I didn't make the crockpot buffalo chicken lasagna last week, but I will try it soon!

I made tuna salad for lunch one day last week and made the most delicious tuna melt out of mine. I toasted tuna and shredded cheese on some bread, then added extra mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Topped with fresh spinach leaves and red onion. The tuna salad also had jalapeno in it. It was amazing!

Every time we've tried to menu plan we have pretty much failed miserably. I'm going to blame Doug on that, of course. ;)

I am planning to make another attempt on Sunday and I'm thinking stuffed shells will be on the list! My mom's lasagna recipe doesn't precook noodles either and I love that.

I rarely follow my menu plan exactly. It's a good week if I follow it 75% of the time. Stuff just comes up, you decide you're not in the mood for what is planned, or your husband decides he doesn't want what you've planned. ;)

I definitely recommend the stuffed shells! They were yummy and they were great leftover the next day!
