Food, Glorious Food

After a week of no plan and a couple of weeks with half-hearted plans, I'm so happy to have my menu ready to go this week...

We're back into the fall swing of things and even though no one at our house is currently in school, things definitely all started again last week. We're trying to make things that work as leftovers. I need to be out of the house at 6:30 tonight and Thursday, so that means that both those dinners need to be leftover meals (or super fast meals). With a change in hours for me and J, Alex is going to be taking on more of the cooking and we're trying to keep dinner simple...

Monday: Cashew chicken sans cashews but with celery (leftovers)

Tuesday: Chili (leftovers)

Wednesday: Channa Masala

Thursday: Channa Masala (or other leftovers)

Friday: Dinner out with Alex and J

Saturday: Tex-Mex Chicken and Beans

Sunday: BBQ with friends at their house

More fall menu ideas over at I'm an Organizing Junkie.


  1. Looks like a great menu! I followed your link for the Tex Mex Chicken and Beans and it looks fabulous! I'll be trying that soon! Thanks! :)

  2. @Alison - I love that chicken. It makes its way onto our plates regularly - probably a couple of times a month. I usually double the beans and use chicken broth instead of's yummy with rice or in a wrap with Monterey Jack cheese...

  3. Oh...and double the liquid if you double the beans otherwise you will have a yucky, dried out mess...
