Menu Monday

It's time for another Menu Monday post.

Here's what we'll be eating this week...

Mon: Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Packs

We used to eat these at my grandma's house growing up and they were called mystery packs. It's not so much of a mystery when you have to make it yourself. These are really easy and you can pretty much put anything in them. This looked different with the stuffing in it. I've never had a stuffing mystery pack.

Tues: Easy Fish in a Bag

I bought a big bag of fish because we didn't have any left in the freezer and we've been eating this non stop. It's really easy and KB really likes fish. We'll be having it with corn and green beans from various people's gardens.

Wed: Herbed Up Spring Chicken Packet

It's a whole week of packets! Our tommy toe is the only tomato plant that has really done anything this year. We have a ton of them and I'm always looking for ways to use them up. This looks like a pretty good way to use up some of them.

Thurs: Huevos Rancheros

I've made this recipe a few times and it's amazing every time. You don't even really need a recipe for huevos rancheros. It's just a lot of Mexican goodness with eggs.

Bonus Recipes!

KB's aunts came over for dinner on Saturday and I made this:

Slow Roasted Cilantro Lime Butter Chicken

This was pretty easy (for roast chicken) and tasted really good. I cranked up the heat the last little bit of cooking time and the skin came out really crispy.

Herbed Potato Salad

I was right in the middle of making this when I figured out I didn't have any olive oil, so I ended up making it with mayonaisse instead. It turned out pretty good. KB's aunts really like it, but my family wasn't so much on it. I chopped up lots of herbs that we have growing in our yard, so it was a little strong.

Lemonade Cake

This cake was pretty good (and kind of hard to make). It's really lemony, so if you don't really like lemon flavor you probably won't like it. It tastes really good with a glass of milk.

What will you be cooking and eating this week???
