Menu Plan Monday - Denise tries something new!

I've prepared the same basic meals for 26 years, give or take, and have reached a point where I want to try some new dishes. Well, I'm jumping in with both feet this week and plan to try two that I've found recently. Hopefully, I'll actually get them made and we'll enjoy them.

So without further hullabaloo, here's the menu for the coming week.

Tonight we're having broiled barbecued beef short ribs with baked beans and salad. If there are any ribs leftover I'll take the meat off the bone, cut it into small pieces, and use it in soup. Wednesday night we'll have whatever I make at my mother's house, presuming I go over that day.

Assuming there are no ribs left to make soup, the rest of the week we'll have, in no particular order:

Crockpot Cheese and Vegetables with homemade wheat rolls

Corn chip chili pie, one of my all time cold weather favorites

Meatloaf Casserole with green beans and salad

Baked chicken tenders with steamed spinach and salad

And that's it for the week, short and sweet, easy and tasty...I hope!

Hop on over to Menu Plan Monday and add your menu for the week. It's always fun to see what others are serving and I've gotten some fantastic recipes that way.

Oooooh, the meatloaf casserole looks real good. Yes, it's a week for meatloaf. Back to the basics after the holiday season!

I try to make at least one or two new things each month. Tonight we had artichoke chicken breast for the first time - not fantastic so I won't make them again.

Manuela, I'm going to try to do the same - make a couple of new dishes each month. I have so many recipes saved but just don't get around to trying them. I'll work on it, though!
