Menu Plan for September 22-28

Looking back on last week, we did OK with the plan until the weekend. Then it all went off the plan. Thursday I tried a new salmon dish that I won't even post--it was NOT a hit (and I followed the directions to the letter). Since I can't figure out how to cure it, and salmon is too expensive to ruin more than once, that was the end of that! Friday we had the Hoisin-Molasses Pork. Saturday I made some Wendy's Copycat Chili. Sunday we had Chicken Parmesan with pasta.

On tap for this week...TheDad "may or may not" be here on any given evening, depending on how things go with his dad's surgery today. It's hard to know what to plan, so this plan may go completely out the window as the week goes on. But here's where I'm going to start.

MONDAY: Chicken & dumplings

TUESDAY: Chicken piccata

WEDNESDAY: Pot roast

THURSDAY: Hash-brown quiche (on recommendation of Barbara at Bless Us, O Lord)

FRIDAY: Pasta party for Big Brother's cross-country team. Pasta for 20 teenagers!! Baked ziti, spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread and plain bread, salad and dessert.

SATURDAY: Luau chicken on the grill (never had this last week)

SUNDAY: Fajitas (never had this last week)


  1. Your recipe for Chicken and Dumplings sounds fantastic! I'm planning on baking two whole chickens to use for different meals during the week and now I know one of the meals. Thanks!

  2. Thanks, Tami, but you might want to check my other blog for what the kids planned to DO with the dumplings...

  3. Chicken and dumplings are good, but no one here will eat the dumplings! LOL So we just call ours chicken and noodles. hee hee. Tami, try chicken enchiladas with some of that meat! I have a very simple recipe if you want it. I made Spicy Oven Fried Chicken tonight from FC and posted it on my cooking blog, it was awesome!

  4. Barb! I think your blog is fabulous, so I have given you an award! Here it is, thanks for having such a great blog!

  5. Barb, thanks for sharing your failures as well as the successes. Congrats on the award.

    Now, a question. Would you be interested in being a featured mom of the week on From Dates to Diapers and Beyond? I am featured this week, you can tell them about both of your blogs and anything else you might want to share. I think you'd be a great feature, but I don't want anyone to feel obligated. Let me know if you are comfortable being nominated, and I'll be happy to get to it as soon as I can.
    Oh, and thanks for telling me about my chef guy - I can't tell you how I coveted that little dude. :)

  6. Looks like some delicious meals this week! Thanks for sharing.
