Menu Plan Monday

We had a wonderful Easter celebration inspite of my daughter getting the flu and being sick all night.  Thank goodness by around noon she was feeling better.  I hope everyone else enjoyed such a wonderful day. 
This week is Spring Break for my children, unfortunately we are not able to go somewhere warm and not rainy!! (I really do like the rain..just not the wind!). My plan is to do fun things with the kids this week.  Things we don't normally do.  We will see what happens.  Due to this fact my menu is not set in stone, but these are the things I am planning on cooking this week:
Cheeseburger Braid
Tortilla Rollups
Chicken Alfredo

We have lots of leftovers from our Easter feast.  I am going to see how far I can stretch those!!
Don't forget to enter my giveaway here!!
Have a FABULOUS week!!

Check out other plans for this week at Menu Plan Monday!!


  1. So sorry to hear about your daughter and hope she is back to normal today.

    Your menu for the week sounds great! I made scalloped potatoes yesterday and they were a disaster. I've made them the same way for many years but, used Yukon gold potatoes instead of russets yesterday. No one ate them, including me! They not only tasted strange and horrible but, even looked really weird. So, do not use Yukon gold for yours!

    I'm sure you will find fun things to do with your children, rain or not. It's supposed to rain here also for a couple of days.

    Have a great spring break week!

  2. Your menu looks great! The cheeseburger braid sounds very good!

  3. Have a great Spring Break! When my sons were young, I would let them pick a whole day to write the menu and I would cook whatever they wanted with their assistance. As they got older, they tried to out do each other by planning weird things, like Vienna sausages and lemon pie. Still, we had some really fun times cooking together.
    Have a great week!

  4. We're on Spring Break here as well and no plans to do anything either, other than stay near the house!

    everything here looks so yummy! Got any suggestions on how I can get the droll outta my keyboard?!?

    Thanks for your comment today! happy spring break!

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.
