Menu Plan Monday

Fall has arrived in our area.  We finally shut all the windows and my daughter complained all morning how cold she was (it was so dramatic!).   I will take the cold mornings because the afternoons are beautiful not to mention I love the changing colors that fall brings.  This week is a bit crazy, I am working full time this week (days yay!!), we are preparing for Kody's cross country sub-district race and homecoming dance (dinner at our house, so wish me luck!!). 
This Week's Menu
Monday: Bacon Mac & Cheese
Tuesday:  Surprise Meatloaf
Wednesday: Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Thursday: Picnic Night
Saturday: Homecoming Dinner TBD
Happy Fall Y'All!!


  1. Love the menu planner, I keep thinking I should do that for myself! Surprise Meatloaf sounds interesting... Have a great week:@)

  2. Yummy menu for the week! Picnic night sounds fun! :-)

  3. Fall is the one time of year when I really miss the changing seasons that we lack in Phoenix. It is supposed to be a little rainy this week here and the high on Wednesday will be 78 degrees so that's something. Your homecoming dance dinner will be fabulous. Those are some lucky kids!

  4. I just make crock pot chicken enchilada casserole...great minds! Wish I could have taken a picture of it for the website...that would require my camera! :)

    Having a crock pot recipe contest this week. Come check it out.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  5. Good luck with your busy week!! I don't know how you do it all! Tell Kody good luck and have fun at the dance!

  6. I have your blog under my favorites. Because I love a good recipe. ALL of your recipes look and sound delicious. I had to laugh about your daughter. Mine has been complaining too. I say put on a sweater. lol


  7. It's getting cold here, also. We've been loading up on wood and already have had to use the wood stove. I'm enjoying the colors of the trees, they are amazing.

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.
