Last week’s menu plan got all MESSED UP! We ended up with SO MANY leftovers from the week before and then ended up on an impromptu date on Thursday so I hardly had to cook at all. NOT that I’m complaining in the least.
So Sunday night we ended up having the planned Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas from Tuesday night. OH MY! They were SO GOOD! I highly recommend this recipe. I took Amy’s advice and cooked my own black beans by soaking them all day and then cooking them for several hours on the stove.
I had never cooked dried beans before. Ummmm… they SERIOUSLY EXPAND as they soak and cook. If you’ve never cooked dried beans and plan to, USE A LARGER POT than you think you need so you are not having to transfer them in the middle of the cooking process because they are cooking over. Just a bit of advice there.
Now, on to this week’s menu…
MONDAY: Small Group (not cooking – WHOOP!)
TUESDAY: (Soccer Practice) Hot Dogs, veggies, chips
WEDNESDAY: Girl’s Night (WHOOP!) Leftovers for those at home
FRIDAY: Bingo Night at School – Pizza!
SATURDAY: Pork Dumplings (Gonna try something new – wish me luck!)
SUNDAY: Breakfast for dinner.
What are you making this week? Do you menu plan? If not, DO IT! You’ll save time, money, and your sanity – PROMISE!
