Menu Plan Monday

Last week I actually heard from someone that had tried one of the recipes from our menu!  How exciting!  Jill Woodruff Lawson, you made my day.  So, if you try one of the recipes, give me a shout out and maybe you will get your name published on my blog as well!!!  :-)

Well, this week we are having some oldies, but goodies!

Sunday - Taco Soup (recipe following)

Monday - Honey Mustard Chicken Strips

Tuesday - Baked Ziti w/ Spinach
                 Zucchini Rounds

Wednesday - Leftovers

Thursday - Spaghetti
                  Olive Garden Salad

Friday - Chicken Bake

Saturday - Roast
                 Potatoes and Carrots

My taco soup recipe is kind of one of those oopsies!  I was following a recipe from a cookbook, and didn't quite read it right and BOOM!  A new soup was discovered!  So, here is this VERY difficult soup.

KaKi' Taco Soup

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can corn
1 can kidney beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 pkg. taco seasoning

After draining the meat, add the taco seasoning and let it heat up a bit.  Then add the rest of the ingredients, juice and all.  Let it come to a boil, turn heat to low and simmer 20 minutes.  We eat it plain, with sour cream, with chips, however we feel like it or our calories for the day allow!!

Hope you like this week's menu, let me know if you try one out!


  1. Kaki, I made the chicken bake tonight, and it was way better than I thought it would be. That Italian seasoning really dressed it up, and I plan to do it again - EASY!

    1. Oh good! I know, when I first made it, I was like....uh....I don't know. But it is really tasty!! Glad you like it!
