Meal Plan Monday~ Sept 12, 2011

Happy Monday!


Well, our first week of grade 1 went splendidly! Mr.B is very content being back at school and loves his teacher. He told me the other night that she was nice, fun and beautiful. I think this may be his first teacher crush, LOL. We get to meet Ms.Maxwell in a few week at the school pizza dinner and meet & greet. Getting back into our routine wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Though, by Saturday I was exhausted and happy to be able to relax and read my book, most of the day.


This week will be a long one, since Hubby has to work until Saturday. This weekend is his weekend off and his last day off was Thursday. So, we will both be happy to see the weekend arrive. Nothing too fancy on the menu this week. It's the second half of our grocery run, so I'm working with what's in the freezer and pantry. I think it'll still be some pretty good eats though. Here is the plan, in no particular order
  • Baked sole with lemon rice and peas
  • Peameal bacon sandwiches with black bean and corn salad (new recipe)
  • Country casserole
  • Fettuccine with chicken, fennel and lemon (new recipe)
  • Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken (new recipe) and vegetable chop suey (new recipe)
  • Pizza with Caesar salad
  • leftovers
Head on over to OrgJunkie.com, for more great meal plans, for the week!

    Thanks for stopping by. I haven't tried the black bean and corn salad recipe yet, but it's from Rachael Ray, so I have high hopes, LOL.

    Black Bean and Corn Salad

    1 can, 14 ounces, black beans, rinsed and drained
    2 cups frozen corn kernels
    1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1/2 red onion, chopped
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin, half a palm full
    2 teaspoons hot sauce, just eyeball the amount (recommended: Tabasco)
    1 lime, juiced
    2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, eyeball it
    Salt and pepper


    Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Let stand at least 15 minutes for corn to fully defrost and flavors to combine, then toss and serve. The corn will also place a quick-chill on this easy side-salad as it defrosts -- no need to refrigerate!

    wow, you are so organized! I should be more organized. Your muffins in your previous post look fabulous. I would love one large one right now.

    Hi Cindy!

    It's "Mrs. Burgess" Congratulations on such a successful career... you r awesome! I finally baked those individual apple and strawberry rhubarb pies last night and fell in LOVE with the tasty treats! I shared two of the four! lol

    Do you have the recipe on your site or do you sell them? You could make a living out of selling pies alone! Glad to hear Braiden has settled into Grade one so well! Say hi to him for me!

    Hi Kim!!

    What a wonderful surprise this morning. You really made Braiden's day by leaving a comment!

    I am so glad you enjoyed the pies. I do have the recipe on my blog and have yet to venture into the selling aspect of cooking yet. Here is the link to the blog post, for the pies.


    Thanks again for stopping by and if you ever need desserts for a special event, keep me in mind :o).
