Menu Plan Monday: August 31st (and Crab Dip recipe)

This week for lunch I am making Chimichangas with guacamole for me and Egg Salad for Stu to take to work. Here are our dinners:

Barbecue Chicken Burritos, fries, and steamed mixed vegetables

Chicken Milan, buttered noodles, and steamed broccoli

Crab Rangoon searved with sweet and sour sauce, fried rice

Broccoli Soup with dinner rolls and Ritz crackers

I will also be making this Crab Dip with the leftover crab:

1 package of cream cheese
4 oz. imitation crab meat, flaked
1/4 cup favorite salsa

Roughly chop the crab and then mix with the cream cheese and salsa. Serve with Wheat Thins. So yummy!

Menu Plan Monday: August 24th

I'm back after two weeks in North Carolina on vacation and I have to say: It's nice to get back into the meal planning and cooking thing. I've just started posting my meal plans a few weeks ago, but I've been meal planning for over a year now. I don't know what we ever ate before that!

So, here's what we're having this week:

Pita pizzas with salad/ sliced fresh tomatoes

Chicken Enchiladas with Chili Cream Sauce, steamed white rice, and a salad

Baked Chimichangas on a bed of chopped lettuce, steamed rice, steamed mixed veggies
(for the chimichangas, I'm using the linked recipe, but instead of frying them, I now brush them lightly with veg. oil and bake them on a cookie sheet, turning once, at 400 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. My husband and I both agree they're even better this way, and it saves tons of empty calories by not frying them.)

Taco Soup with Ritz crackers

Cheeseburger Pie and steamed broccoli
