Menu Plan - May 16

Our menu plan last week had a smattering of new recipes.  But, the week did not start off on a good note --  rotten chicken and moldy mushrooms.  Since I didn't have time to get to the store, we improvised.  Chicken cordon bleu became "cordon bleu" sans the chicken.  Chicken Marsala ravioli became pizza margherita.  The pizza turned out to be a smashing hit -- so, in a way, I'm thankful for the dinner that almost wasn't.  

The rest of the week was the "birthday special" for Frog Prince -- who, believe it or not, turned 29 last week!

B - Buttermilk Pancakes {freezer}, apple-y topping
D - Potato Soup, bread

L - Baked Veggie Sandwich, oven potatoes
D - Pizza Pasta {new}
Dessert for LOST - Apple Rhubarb Crumble {new}

B - Granola, dried fruit
L - Clean out the fridge
D - Sandwiches, carrots, wheat olive oil crackers {new}

Celebrating with my sister!!

Hope you have a great week -- I'll try to post some new recipes before the weekend, but my posting Thursday-Sunday might be sparse so we can enjoy time with family.


  1. Looks like a great menu for the week, even with it being a short one. I hope you have fun celebrating with your sister! The mac and cheese sounds delicious...I'm making a version of it this week too, but next time I'm going to give yours a try. Heck, if it snagged someone a husband, it must be good!!

  2. Nice looking menu, the chicken cordon blue in the crock pot looks interesting, thanks!

  3. sounds like a tasty week and hopefully no more mishaps in the food dept.

    oh and ive already made the oreos, here is the recipe!

  4. mmm sounds good! :) We're making your Three Cheese Ziti this week--I can't wait to try it!

  5. I made your white cheddar mac and cheese a while ago and was really disappointed in the flavor. But I think I used a cheese that was too mild. What type of white cheddar do you use?

  6. Looks wonderful! I'll be over on your next pizza night. Yum!

  7. Yum! Love chicken cordon bleu!! :D We're trying out the buns this week with some burgers.

    Have a great week!!

  10. Your pictures always make me sooo hungry! Especially the pizza photo! Mmmmm!

  11. The chicken and potato medley looks great. Did you post the recipe?

  12. Tit for tat, that I made you hungary - that Pizza Margarita is making my mouth water! I think homemade pizzas will be in my next menu plan!

  13. Great menu plan for the week. Hope you have a great time with your sister.
