Menu Plan Monday

Note: After much debate in my own mind, I have changed my menu plan a bit ok, alot this week.  I realized that I have some items already in my fridge that need to be used. That being the main reason and the second it will make for much more interesting meals this week.

I survived the 2 1/2 hour drive one way to stand in the wind and a bit of rain to watch my son run for 17:04 minutes.  I would not have missed it for anything.  He did really well.  My girls found an acorn tree and they thought that was pretty neat to collect the acorns.  We had never seen them in real life before.  It was a gorgeous drive through the mountains with all the fall colors.  You would all be proud of me because I packed us veggies, apples and stuff to make sandwiches with so we would not have to eat out.  So atleast I was thinking for once.  It was a good family day.  Now on to the crazy week. 
This week  for my new recipe I am trying Chicken Bacon Cheese Pockets.  They sound delicious.  I will let yo know how it goes.
This weeks Menu
Monday: Shredded Beef Enchiladas (leftover roast from yesterday. Hopefully I get to it before my husband does.)
Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff
Thursday: Picnic Night
Friday: Sausage & Potatoes
Saturday: Random Night - Dad cooks. 
Sunday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

A little update: I made the Black & White Brownies last week.  I ended up being quite disappointed.  So I will continue the search for a better recipe.  It was brownies with a cream cheese mixture baked with them.  If anyone has a good recipe please send it my way.  There is just something about mixing cream cheese and brownies together that sounds so delish!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
