Menu Plan Monday July 18, 2011

It is that time of week again...Menu Plan Monday which is actually being hosted over at Finding Joy in My Kitchen this week!  I'm in transition right now amending when I sit down to plan my menu and buy groceries...but more on that another day.

Sunday: Vegetable Soup. This is a great recipe to use up veggies that need to be used and might be nearing expiration!  I don't really have a recipe for this, so here is a quick summary of how I make it.
Put a few TBSP of butter in pot. Add onions and celery. Saute for a few minutes.  Add chopped carrots, potatoes, red or green peppers, and any other veggies that take awhile to cook.  Add water, enough to cover veggies.  Add a variety of spices that you would like. I usually lean towards Italian type seasonings. This batch I added Italian seasoning and 1 garlic clove chopped. Add can of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce or juice (whichever one you have on hand).  Let it cook for 5 minutes.  Add any other veggies you have on hand that are more tender and do not require much time to cook. I added squash, fresh green beans, corn to this batch.  Cook for 10 minutes or so till veggies are tender.

Monday: Leftover Soup.  Brenden had a very healthy dinner, grilled hot dogs, since he wont eat veggies.

Tuesday: Taco Salad

Wednesday: Chicken Nuggets. Tossed Salad.

Thursday: Chicken Skewers

Friday: Homemade Pizza. We are putting pepperoni, ham, and bacon on our pizza. Tossed Salad.

Saturday: Tortellini, garlic break, and tossed salad
