In my last week's menu plan I have to say that the vegetable lasagna and the chili mac both turned out nicely. I never got a chance to make the chicken tortilla soup, so you will see that yet again this week!
Monday- I have a half block of random leftover Velveeta (from a cheese dip recipe) and I happened upon this recipe in an old issue of Kraft food and family magazine (and by the way, did they stop making that in print form?). It is great because it uses a random box of manicotti that I have had for a while and that half block of Velveeta. Yay! Here is the recipe for Shortcut Chicken Manicotti.
Tuesday- The good ol' Chicken Tortilla Soup again :)
Wednesday- Salmon filets are on sale at Acme this week and I'm really craving salmon for some reason. I'll make that with broccoli and rice.
Thursday- Leftovers! There will already be a'plenty.
Friday- I just got Rachael Ray's Express Lane Meals cookbook and I can't wait to try some of the recipes, as they mostly use pantry items and I love that :) She has one called Drunken Tuscan pasta which uses greens, pancetta and spaghetti that was cooked in red wine. I will definitely not be cooking my spaghetti in a whole bottle of red wine, but I will still try the recipe as I love no-sauce pastas.
Sunday- We really love chili in our house, and this is the recipe that I have made for years. It is so easy and it is also easy to freeze a batch. Here is the recipe for Spicy Freezer Chili (but it's really not that spicy!)
