My Menu Plan.

I completely miss last weeks menu plan. I wasn't feeling well. Carly was still home, not feeling well. It was just a crazy week. No worries...we still ate. I still planned (in my head) all of our meals. Most often I schedule these ahead of time, but last week and the week before had my head spinning. Funny how a sick kid throws a monkey wrench in everything!!

This weeks menu plan:

Monday: Sloppy Jo's and french fries

Tuesday: Lasagna, garlic bread and salad

Wednesday: Pierogies, and veggies

Thursday: Meatloaf, mac and cheese and veggies

Friday: Pizza

Saturday: Tacos, Spanish rice and corn cake casserole

Sunday: Roasted chicken and potatoes with veggies

Last week I baked a ton of chicken breasts for one of our meals. That way, I had plenty of left overs for another meal. I thought I'd share my Cheaters Chicken and Dumplings. This is every bit as good as making them with biscuit mix. Less messy. Less time consuming. Easy and yummy.

Cheaters Chicken and Dumplings:

2 large cans of Swanson chicken broth (I think the cans are 32oz)
2 cans of Pillsbury biscuits. (I used Grands)
4 cups of chicken, de-boned and chunked or diced. I did mine kind of small and chunky.
1/4 - 1/2 cups of sliced carrots. (you can add more or less or none!)
1/4 cup flour and water...for thickening. ( I never measure the flour & water) More or less, depending on how thick you want your broth to get.

Boil chicken broth in large pot. Take biscuits out of tubes. Cut in half and then quarter each half.
Once broth is boiling good. Add the biscuits. Add thickening and stir quickly add chicken and carrots. Cover and boil for 10 minutes.
Quick, easy and tasty too!

Making me hungry again. You make it seem so easy to do. I'm trying to make a menu plan too to make grocery shopping easier plus less thinking of what to make for dinner each day. Do you come up with a menu plan every week or do you plan 2 weeks out? What would you suggest is better?
