Menu Monday

We're right in the middle of a HUGE project in our yard involving lots of stone blocks and sand, so dinners will be pretty quick and easy this week.  Here's what we're having...

Mon: French Onion Soup Casserole

I love french onion soup. It's so cheesy and oniony and delicious. I also love casseroles. They are easy and warm and gooey. I'm hoping this will be as delicious as french onion soup. If so, I'll definitely be making it again.

Tues: Tomato Soup Mac and Cheese with a Salad

The last time I made mac and cheese it didn't exactly turn out right. I'm hoping that this version turns out better. It sounds a little weird to put tomato soup in maccaroni and cheese, but I think it's going to taste really good. Kind of like dipping a grilled cheese into tomato soup.

Wed: Crock Pot Sweet and Tangy Meatballs with Rice

I made these during the spring and KB liked them so much that he asked for them again. They are so easy and really do taste really good. I cut the recipe in half this time, so I'll probably put them in a dish down inside the Crock Pot instead of just in the Crock Pot itself so they don't overcook.

Thurs: Parmesan Basil Chicken Salad  (recipe on Pin)

Chicken salad and tuna salad are my jams. They are so creamy and delicious and wonderful. Our neighbor gave me a ton of lemon basil and regular basil and I need to use it up. I think this will be a delightful way!


Cinnamon French Toast Bake

I'm not a huge fan of french toast. I think it's because I'm not a huge fan of syrup. I really like cinnamon rolls though. I made this yesterday morning for breakfast and it was really good. I used just regular milk instead of heavy cream and it turned out fine.

What will you be eating this week???

    Also, did you see that my mac and cheese this week used tomato soup? It's the perfect addition!

  5. it took me forever, but i finally found my mac & cheese go-to recipe. and i make it in individual ramekins so we can't eat 100 lbs of it. it is on my pinterest is amazing and creamy and doesn't get all congealed.
