Menu Plan Monday - Sept 15th

Wow - another Monday already? Time seems to fly by faster all the time. We actually did pretty well last week - I had to shuffle some things around because the chicken didn't find it's way to the refrigerator to thaw in time for Wednesday's dinner, so that got pushed to Friday. I ended up doing a homemade pizza instead, and we never quite got around to the Chicken Stew...so that has made a repeat appearance on this week's menu.

The Mimi's Sticky chicken was a HUGE hit! We ended up having a couple of surprise guests on Friday so I whipped up some instant mashed potatoes and there was plenty to go around. I also made some chicken stock from what *little* was left of the carcass, and the seasonings from the chicken made it quite yummy. Though I have decided that carrots hate me. It doesn't matter what I do - steam, bake, roast...in the pan with the chicken...for FIVE HOURS...they always stay too raw and never soft and yummy like my mom used to do. Someday I will solve the carrot mystery..for now I will keep subjecting them to my culinary experiments.

So here's this week's menu - mostly easy with a few leftovers, I plan on making some Banana muffins to add to breakfast, and I will be making another batch of Bee Rocks for the freezer as well!
