Menu Plan Monday

Tonight: Leftover Chicken made into a pasta dish. It's an experiment. On friday I took some chicken tenderloins and marinated them in a couple packets of Garlic, Herb and Wine marinade. Then I baked them cut them up and served it over a huge salad it was a DELICIOUS!!!  Well I have a good bit of chicken and the sauce leftover so I am going to saute' some baby portabello mushrooms and mix the mushrooms with the leftover chicken and sauce and serve it over rotini pasta and sprinkle it with parmesan cheese. I'm hoping it will turn out ok, if not there's plenty of other leftovers in the fridge that can stand in if no one likes the chicken pasta.

Tuesday: Ham, fried potatoes, corn and lima beans

Wednesday: Spaghetti

Thursay: Beef and Snow Pea stir fry, over rice

Friday: Hm pizza and bread sticks

Saturday: Cub Scout End Of Year Picnic

Sunday: Beef Roast- not sure if we want it pot roasted or just roasted, so it will either be served with mashed potatoes, or baked potatoes.


  1. Your chicken sound good. I hope everyone likes it. We did salmon this evening which was kinda a flop. No one here really likes fish but I thought maybe with a new recipe we might like it. Well, everyone ate(a little) but I won't be trying fish again for several months. Maybe one day though I'll come across something we like. Fish is supposed to be so good for us. Enjoy your day and God bless.

    1. Salmon is one of my husband and mine's absolute favorites!! I think with fish you either love it or you don't. I know several folks who don't care for fish at all.

      Enjoy your evening!!!

  2. Your meals sound good. How did the chicken pasta turn out. It sounds good.

    Have a wonderful day.


    1. Cheryl it was really good. I don't think it would be something my husband would crave and ask for but it was really good. He's more of a meat and potatoes guy not a pasta guy but he gave it a good go and said it was tastey!!

      The marinade I used in case your interested was actually one I've had on hand for quite sometime it was a McCormick Grill Mates marinade that was Garlic, Wine and Herb or Garlic Herb and Wine, you get the idea. All I had to add was olive oil and white vinegar. I baked the chicken originally and used the excess marinade poured over the chicken when I baked it, giving me a "sauce". Then when I used the leftovers I just took a pat of butter, melted it in a pan added the sliced portobello mushrooms and let them cook a bit and then cut the chicken up in chunks and added it into the mushrooms, and then scraped all the "sauce" into the pan as well and let it get hot, I took a coffee cup of the pasta cooking water and added that as well then served the concoction over mini rotini pasta and sprinkled it with parmesan cheese. I liked it.
