Menu Plan Monday: February 23rd-28th

Hmmm...What to cook this week...that's sort of how I feel this morning. It's been a super busy (but good!) weekend and I am a little behind on the dinner plans for the week.

A couple of my menus got bumped (yet again) last week, so at least there's a couple of nights already planned. I'm putting the bumped menus at the beginning of the week this time so they don't get bumped again:)

The cookbook from my *collection* that I'll be using this week is Among Friends: Keeping Good Company. If you haven't seen their cookbooks, you should check them out. They not only have delicious recipes, but they are so beautiful to look at. Each recipe is a work of art!

I'm also getting brave and trying my Grandma Tapp's chicken & dumpling recipe. I love chicken & dumplings and unless my mom makes them it's hard to get a good bowl. I hesitate to order it in restaurants, because it's always so disappointing to get it made with canned chicken. It just doesn't taste the same. So, I'm going to try making my own this week.

So here's what's cookin'....

Monday: Marlboro Man sandwiches and onion strings
Tuesday: Chicken fajitas and rice
Wednesday: Grandma's Chicken & Dumplings*
Thursday: Pinto Beans & Buttermilk Cornbread
Friday: {Small Group/Pasta Nite} Incredible Cavatini for a Crowd* (from Among Friends)
Saturday: Loaded BBQ Potato Casserole (from the freezer)

*Recipes to be shared later this week

Mmmm...I haven't made chicken and dumplings in years! That sounds so yummy! That sandwich you are having tonight is making my mouth water!...The Mister would love that!

Ohhhh, those Marlboro Man sandwiches look awesome! I printed the recipe to try sometime!

Your menu looks great! I've been diligent about keeping up with mine, but haven't had a chance to post them for awhile. WIll get back to that someday!

On his birthday last March my son asked that I cook chicken and dumplings for him. Yum. They aren't something I cook very often. Good luck. I know you can do it!

I make those dumplins all the time. They are very good.
