Menu Plan Monday

It’s Monday, the start of a new week and hopefully another week of avoiding that expensive drive through. I have a couple of favorites on the list this week, like Friday’s tacos and Thursday’s roast. I also have a few new recipes to try. I’ve had Dorie’s new book since it was released, but have yet to try anything from its beautiful pages. So this week I’ll be trying my had at a chicken, a stew and a broccoli side recipe from there. Wednesday’s is new too, so it should be an interesting week! Have you planned your menu?

Monday – Chicken Breast Diable – from Around My French Table page 217, serving with Garlicky Crumb Coated Broccoli, same book page 334

Tuesday – Beef Daube (stew) – from Around My French Table page 244

Wednesday – Macaroni and Cheese with Ham, Peas and Shallots – I have some ham in the freezer and a box of elbow macaroni, so I thought I’d give this recipe a whirl.

Thursday – To Die For Pot Roast – This is an old favorite. So very good and only a few ingredients.

Friday – Something with ground beef Tacos probably, or maybe sloppy joe.

Saturday – Pasta of some sort, something easy

Sunday – Leftover night
