Menu Plan Monday

Greetings all from a very wet middle TN. Well got some interesting news over the week-end. Looks like DH family is having a reunion next Aug. I think it is like the first one ever. Glad to get plenty of notice on this as it is being held in WA state, Puget Sound to be exact. LONG trip for us. We figure five days each way in our RV and at least $1000 in gas for both ways. So need to do much praying on this. We were planning a trip out west in about two years for DS graduation, but maybe we can some now and just do Alaska in two years. Much to think about. Unfortunately I am also thinking that gives me about 272 days to try to get a bit healthier and drop a few pounds. Defiantly need prayers in this area. I am thinking of calling it my "reunion renovation project". LOL Will keep you all posted on some of the food changes I make and new recipes I make. Speaking of new recipes, we had the crock pot chicken taco's last night for dinner - delish! So easy to make to:

1 1/2 lbs. boneless-skinless chicken breast, 1 taco seasoning pk., 14oz. can fire roasted diced tomatoes.
place chicken in bottom of crock pot, mix seasoning and tomatoes together and pour over chicken. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Shredded chicken and serve in soft tortillas with all the taco trimmings!

Here is what is for dinner at our house this week:

Monday: Pasta Parmesan (Held over from last week where it was call on sickness and moved to this week) with Cesar Salad

Tuesday: Tamale Pie with veggie sticks and home made dip

Wednesday: Crock pot sauerkraut and kielbasa w/creamed onions and spice oat muffins

Thursday: HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Deep fried turkey, , home made cranberries, crock pot green bean casserole, crock pot cranapple cider and onion blossoms for appetizers since we are already frying the turkey. Grandma S and Grandpa D are bringing oyster stuffing, mashed potatoes and gray, and the pies! YUMMY!

Friday: White turkey chili (made with leftovers) w/cornbread and salad

Saturday: Crock pot ham 'n cheese soup w/carrot sticks and garlic bread sticks

Sunday: Country corn blakeyed pea casserole (leftovers from week before) w/ smoked sausage and biscuits.
