Menu Plan for the week of March 22nd-28th


Here is my menu plan for the week. I will post recipes as they are made. :)

I am not accounting for leftovers right now because the kids are off for Spring break so more might be eaten for lunch than usual. So I'll have to see how it goes.

My menu plan got thrown off a bit last week because of my husband's surgery. He is gradually getting better. Thank you for your prayers! So I have moved some things to this week that we didn't get to make last week. Plus some simple things in there to make things easy this week. Hopefully things will be back to normal next week.

My mom brought us some beef filets over to cook. We all enjoy steak. So that was a really nice treat. I fixed baked potatoes to go with it.

five cheese bread (peppridge farms, frozen)

Easy Chicken pot pie

Enchilada Casserole
tex mex rice
creamy corn, avocado and tomato salad

hamburger helper

chicken tenders
mac n cheese
green beans

refried beans
fried potatoes

Have a blessed day!
God bless,


Oooh, I would love to see that creamy corn salad recipe!

Your menu look yummy. What is a Miga? I don't think I've ever heard of that before.
Yum, your menu looks great! I love steak too but we rarely have it around here, unless I can find it on sale.

Thanks for welcoming me to MPM. Your menu looks delicious. I haven't made an enchilada casserole in a long time. I think it might be time. However, the rest of the gang doesn't really like casserole type dishes, so I guess I would have it all to myself lol.

Sounds like a yummy week, I will check back to see some recipes.
I've never had Migas but it looked so yummy on another blog I found. Here's the post that explains what it is and has a picture. It looks yummy!

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

½ stick of butter
1 tbsp oilive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 yellow onions, diced
2 12oz jars of quartered artichoke hearts in water (drained, rinsed and diced)
2-3 lemons
2-3 cups of cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 tsp of dried oregano
8 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups of half & half
Salt and pepper to taste

In a 5-6 qt. stockpot over medium heat, melt butter and add the olive oil. Sauté the onions until translucent, add the garlic and then cook for a minute more. Add the artichoke hearts and salt and pepper if desired and cook for 3-5 minutes. Next, add your chicken stock. Allow this to come to a boil,…

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
