Menu Planning Monday

So most of you who know me know that I love to plan (I have to plan everything!!!!) and I love to cook (and eat!). I've been stalking a blog that does menu planning every week. While I've been planning my own meals, I have yet to share on the blog so this will be my first week sharing. :) We're eating out of our pantry and from stuff we already have on hand this week. I'll post links to some of the recipes. :)

Monday- Black bean soup and home fries
Tuesday- Ultimate Grilled Cheese(we might use the filling as a quesadilla filling instead) and green beans
Wednesday- Potato soup (see below) and garlic muffins (I can't remember where I got this recipe!!)
Thurday- Chicken burrito soup (New recipe for me) with tortilla strips
Friday-Sunday we might be out of town so nothing planned.

Jayne shared this recipe with me!
Potato Soup

1 30 oz bag of frozen hash browns
2 can chicken broth
1 pkg McCormicks Country Gravy

Brown hash browns in Pam, add chicken broth. Prepare gravy as directed and add to soup. Simmer.
**I add some extra spices and goodies to this. But it's a super easy and yummy soup just as it is!

  2. That Chicken Burrito Soup looks really yummy and different. Hubby and I love soup - will have to give it a try.

  3. Welcome to MPM, I love it as it saves me money and it's fun too! Great menu, looks like a yummy week.

    Cheers, Kiy
