menu planning monday 09.08.08

For more menu planning ideas, please check out The Organizing Junkie.

Don't forget to check out the previous menus and their reviews by yours truly and Chef D!

Monday: Mimi's Sticky Chicken with whole grain/wild/brown rice and a tossed salad (the chicken did not thaw in time to make it for the previously scheduled day, so we'll have it today)

Tuesday: Sharla's Tortilla Soup 

Apprehension-Free Wednesday: This week's menu at church is Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole, English Peas, Fruit Salad, and dessert.

Thursday: Shrimp Wontons with dipping sauce

: Asian-inspired Salmon, Noodles, and Cole Slaw from Heather's Home Blog.

Saturday: I hope to be serving in the sous-chef role to Chef D who will be preparing a special meal for a special family who will be joining us for dinner.

Sunday: Roast Beef with vegetables (I plan to cook it the longer version as noted in her comment section since it will need to cook for 3 hours while I am at church). This will be our second attempt at preparing a mid-day meal instead of dining out after church. Due to the above-mentioned slow-thawing chicken, it didn't quite work out as planned last week. Our goal is to eventually have this perfected so that we can invite another family over to join us for a home-cooked meal after church each week.

Your menu sounds so good!! We made pork dumplings this past week but I didn't have a recipe so I winged it and it didn't turn out half bad! Since shrimp is in abundance here, I will have to try that recipe!

Your menu looks great. I always love a good Tortilla soup. I'll have to try this one soon.
