Menu Plan Monday!

A new week is here..yea! Somehow, the weekend is never long enough, is it?

Here is what is on the menu for our home this week:

Monday: Rachael Ray's Indian Summer Chili
Tuesday: Chicken soft tacos
Wednesday: Ziti Bake
Thursday: Crock pot Thursday: Pork chops and potatoes
Friday: going out

I had a request to post the recipe for the oh-so-tasty chicken/green bean and potatoes dish I made the other night (that was quite a fiasco)!

Potato-Green Bean-Chicken Dish

4-6 large chicken breasts (thawed)
3 large baking potatoes (pealed and cut up) or several sliced red potatoes
2-3 cans of green beans (drained)
1 stick butter
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup water
2 packages Good Season Italian Dressing Mix
Black pepper, salt and parsley flakes (optional)


Preheat over to 225. Put all above ingredients into a large casserole dish.
Mix butter, oil, water and seasoning mix together in a bowl.
Pour seasoning mixture over the chicken, potatoes, and green beans. Garnish with parsley, add salt and pepper.
Cover with foil. Bake at 225 for 2 hours. Then, turn up oven to 350 and cook for an additional 30-45 mins just to make sure that the chicken is well cooked and potatoes are soft. Or, you can slow cook this dish for 5-6 hours on 225.

I have a busy week ahead - kiddos are home from school today and I am enjoying my day with them! Thank you to all my new blogging friends and all the sweet comments...I will catch up on everything with you very soon!

Thanks for the inspiration. I have some wild boar chops I need to cook up. Your pork chops reminded me of that! :) How do you prepare your chops?

Your menu planning is great with listing of ingredients. I have been trying to cook more and having the meals written out helps so much. The potato recipe sounds yummy.

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
