Menu Plan Monday

This Saturday is the day we kick my children out of the house, with my husband so I can do an all day cooking day with Amy from A Foodie Fairytale. We have quite the list and it will be the first time we attempt something like this. We have changed around the recipes a couple of times...ok, Amy didn't, I changed a couple of mine! I had 3 or 4 different recipes using flour tortillas, which is normally fine, but I didn't want it to start all tasting the same. Then I picked a recipe call Chicken Tortilla Casserole thinking it was like a Mexican Lasagna...actually no it uses tortilla chips which would not freeze well so I swapped that recipe out too. Sorry for all the changes Amy! I'm sure this being the first time we do this there will be some more kinks to work out! I hope to finish grabbing the rest of my groceries on monday so we will be set for Saturday and come up with something for lunch. 

Here is our list:
Pumpkin French Toast Sticks
Blueberry Banana Pancakes
Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls
Breakfast Burritos
Cornmeal Blueberry Scones
Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Monterey Jack Burgers (with homemade burger buns)
Tequila Lime Chicken
Spanish Rice
Vegetable Lasagna
Mango-Cranberry Chicken
Sausage/Onion/Pepper Calzones
Denise's Black Beans w/ Kielbasa
Sloppy Joe's (with homemade rolls)
Three Cheese Baked Spaghetti
Pineapple Chicken Fajitas

So that is a total of 16 meals that will be doubled for 32 meals! 

As for what we are eating until then...

-Apple Muffins with Maple glaze
-Cinnamon Roll Bread

-Corn Dog Muffins
-Thai Pizza on the grill
-Hula Bagel Melts
-Honey Ginger Chicken Stir fry

There may be more in the mix so stay tuned for new recipes!
