Menu Planning Mondays!

Menu planning in our house is back!! Knowing what is for dinner everyday really is a time saver...yes I know I am a stay at home mom but believe it or not I AM BUSY ...BUSY PEOPLE!! Keeping up with a 4 year old is work, add to that housekeeper, accountant, chef,personal assistant,nurse and my day is a never-ending to- do list everyday! I have also learned that keeping up menu planning helps me to not cook the same meals week in and week out.Along with menu planning and with a little bit of help ( maybe addiction) to pinterest I am also "trying" a new recipe a week and thought it might be fun to share and then update if it is a "hit or miss". You never know you might just find something that your family will love or I'm hoping at least mine will.

Menu Plan 1/2-1/8/2012
Monday- Bacon wrapped chicken with mashed potatoes , corn and broccoli

Tuesday-The hubs will be having leftovers and I will be making ham and swiss cresant roll-ups for us girls :)

Wednesday-Spaghetti and meatballs, salad and garlic bread

Thursday- **New recipe**Sour cream enchiladas, spanish rice and black beans

Friday- Corn and potato chowder and garlic cheese biscuits(G, you should be happy...CORN!!)

Saturday- leftover day!!

Sunday- Hubs favorite....Steak, rice beans and carrot salad 

I will also be baking some banana bread this week and Sunday dinner will be complete with a homemade coconut cream pie!

Simple Sour Cream Enchiladas
2 chicken breasts, fully cooked & shredded
1 dozen white corn tortillas
1 8.0. can green enchilada sauce
1 ounces additional green chiles
7 oz. sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese (Jack or Mexican blend)
*using nonfat sour cream and lowfat cheese will decrease the calories!

Mix all ingredients together, reserving 3/4 cup cheese, 1 ounces green chile sauce, and 1.5 ounces sour cream for topping.  Heat corn tortillas 4 or 5 at a time in microwave on high for 30 seconds, then spoon 3 tablespoons of the mixture into the heated tortillas.  (Heating them helps avoid cracking when you roll them up!)  

Spray a large Pyrex or glass dish with cooking spray (you may need an extra dish), then align enchiladas in a row inside.  Blend remaining sour cream and green chile sauce together and spoon over enchiladas.  Top with remaining shredded cheese.Cover with aluminum foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.   Makes 10-12 enchiladas.
Garnish with fresh cilantro

Have a great night!


  1. I take umbrage to the corn comment Kateena, umbrage.

  2. Just found y'all - so good to see another pair of moms bloggin' it up!
    oh those enchiladas look great - I think you could do them in a crockpot for ultimate easiness...

  3. Welcome Liberty!! So glad to have you! I noticed the home school resource on your page. Do you homeschool, I would love too, but I am terrified of the idea.
