Menu Plan Monday: Sept 27th

Since I pretty much took the week off from cooking last week, I guess I'd better be on top of things this week! What can I say though: my family spoiled me for my birthday (and I loved every minute of it:)!

My hubby and kiddos took me to PF Chang's on my birthday (I have got to learn how to make those lettuce wraps!! Has anyone tried it?). Then my parents and sister took me to my fave local Italian place a couple of nights later~so yummy and fun (I think we got pretty loud laughing at Mr. B's new *funny faces*)! If you count all the leftovers we brought home, that was a couple more meals! And let's just not mention all the meals that I just ate those birthday cupcakes and the cake my parents got me. I definitely must start working out again!!

This week I'm making a few new-ish things. I'm just ready for something different, especially now that the weather is cooling off. I'm trying out my homemade pesto with grilled salmon this week for a change. I'm looking for different ways to use all this pesto other than just with pasta. If you have a favorite way to use it, I'd love to hear about it!

Monday: Red Hot Chili with Buttermilk Cornbread
Tuesday: {moms nite out} Loaded Chili Dogs
Wednesday: Ranch Mac & Cheese with Veggies
Thursday: Grilled Salmon with Pesto, Baked Potatoes and a veggie
Friday: {small group} not sure yet...the menu has yet to be announced
Saturday: Slow Cooker 20-Garlic Chicken with Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Peas

Just stopping by from Org. Junkie. Your Garlic Chicken sounds great.
Thank You...

Yum! I love Pesto as well. Some other ways to use it are spread on sandwiches (in place of mayo) and stirred into steamed veggies (for lots more flavor!)
