monday menu

this menu i am putting in some lunch options because 1.) i asked the kids to help me with the menu and most of their suggestions were more lunch-appropriate and 2.) the kids are home all day, so i really need a better lunch menu than i do when they're not all home.
so, in no particular order or organization:
  • chicken/broccoli/rice casserole
  • L> hot dogs
  • L> sandwiches
  • home made chicken fingers (never made them before.  testing out this recipe) with sour creamed potatoes and peas
  • L> chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwiches
  • spaghetti with cottage cheese on the side
  • french toast maybe with bacon (if otter pop's home that night)
  • nana's baked fried chicken with mashed potaters and buttered garlicky corn
  • cobb salad
  • won't be single for long vodka creme pasta -i haven't made this in FOREVER, so perhaps it'll make it on a friday food post!  (especially since the only recipe i have for it is on a piece of loose paper!)
  • hamburger ramen
  • crock pot apricot chicken with rice and oriental green salad (the kind when the salad is made with ramen noodles)
  • ground beef and spinach lasagna roll ups (pg 31 in hamburger book but tweaked with jumbo pasta shells maybe instead)
  • hamburger biscuits (a nicole special but made with leftover -frozen- pulled pork) HERE is a link with the recipe she gave me.
  • cheddar barbecue biscuits (pg 40 in hamburger book)
ps.  why isn't barbecue spelled barbeQue (not necessarily with a capital q)?!  i almost ALWAYS misspell that word!!!!
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
