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:
Breakfasts:
Pumpkin French Toast Sticks
Blueberry Banana Pancakes
Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls
Breakfast Burritos
Cornmeal Blueberry Scones
Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Dinners:
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...

Breakfast/Baking:
-Apple Muffins with Maple glaze
-Cinnamon Roll Bread

Dinner-
-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!
