Menu Plan Monday

I am miles away from being caught up on work, home issues, and thank you cards but we have to eat dinner don't we? And what would we do without our handy dandy Menu Plan Monday!? You have transformed our life, Menu Plan Monday.

Monday -Chicken Packets my word Gretel has been having a fit to have these and I planned to have them on Saturday but chicken patties won my tired bones over., broccoli and cheese

Chicken Packets-
This is a tribute to my dear friend, Tanya who taught me how to make these. I miss you!

crescent rolls
1/3 package cream cheese
1 lb. chopped (I use my mini food processor) boiled chicken breast
couple of T of green onions
Italian Bread Crumbs

Basically, you combine the chopped chicken, cream cheese and green onions, salt and pepper if you wish. You roll an 1/8th of your mixture into a crescent roll triangle. Sprinkle or dredge with butter and roll in Italian Bread Crumbs. They are a little salty if you mix too much so use according to your taste buds.

My seven year old loves to make these and has enjoyed making these for awhile. It is a fairly easy straight-forward recipe that is fairly healthy.
Tuesday -
Spaghetti and Meatballs (Night One) - my daughter loves meatballs and my son loves spaghetti, green beans and french bread
Wednesday - Hamburgers and Cauliflower Bake
Thursday - Chicken Pot Pie
Friday - Turkey Chili; crackers, cheese
Saturday - Race for the Cure; leftovers
Sunday - Hansel's 9th Birthday
Heart-Shaped Waffles or Peanut Butter Pancakes and sausage for breakfast
(Hansel's favorite food) Spaghetti (Night Two), green beans spiked with brown sugar and butter
and rolls

Funny Story: One evening I fixed, I kid you not, Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce out of a can with no hamburger meat or any added spices. I made some spaghetti noodles and handed it to eight year old Hansel on a plate. After he was finished oohing and awing after every bite he told me it was the best food I had ever made and he was going to leave me a tip! I laughed so hard I cried. I love an easy to please eater! :)

I enjoy the chicken packets for the most part, but I second the motion that they can be on the salty side.
