Pesto Chicken Sandwich

Welcome to The Monday Menu. We have had a lot of illness and inability to cook in our house in the last week and a half, so I’m feeling a little half-hearted about the menu this week. I figure I need to plan it out anyways, and if food ends up in the freezer then so be it. I didn’t get a chance to make my chicken and rice last week so it’s first up this week. If we’re feeling well enough we’ll be taking dinner to a family who recently had a baby on Wednesday, so I’m looking forward to that. Any suggestions on what I should make them for dessert? Here’s the tentative food plan for the week:

Monday – Chili Lime Chicken with Mexican Rice and corn tortillas
Tuesday – Hamburgers with parmesan potato rounds
Wednesday – Pasta Lasagna with garlic bread and fresh veggies
Thursday – Homemade Pizza with organic packaged salad
Friday – Penne with Tomato, Feta, and Basil with organic packaged salad
Saturday – Pesto Chicken Sandwiches with fresh fruit

What’s on your menu this week?

    Recovering from almost a week of visitors in the house, so a menu is a big guess at this point. Also trying to be more reasonable and figure friendly to hopefully lose a few before this body gets out of hand. BORING! :) Gotta get in the right mindset.
    Dessert…. If you haven’t tried the Bon Appetit Brown Butter Brownies, those are amazing! Tried and true is chocolate chip cookies. I like taking a few baked and then also giving a container of dough with cooking instructions so they can have fresh when wanted.

    Monday: grilled chicken, black beans, avacado, tomato (salad style tossed with a lime vinaigrette)
    Tuesday: fajita salad
    Wednesday: white bean & kale soup, maybe with chicken sausage
    Thursday: pizza and salad (spinach dough, chicken, feta, olives, tomatoes)
    Friday: peppered thai beef salad

    Get well soon!
