Menu Plan Monday for February 16

After a long day, I finally go around to planning my menu. Usually I like to think ahead about a few things that I want to make, and then after I get everything at the store, I finish making the plan, but I didn't get to go to the store yet, so I'm having to use my imagination a little. So this plan is sort of tentative.

By the way, I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day. Ours was pretty good. We went to Cracker Barrel to eat. (I know it's not that romantic, but I love that place!) Then Sunday afternoon we worked at the the annual chocolate festival. It's a very fun event. Representatives from some of the local restaurants come down, set up booths, and hand out coupons/menus and serve samples of their best desserts. They also have musical entertainment and door prizes, as well as prizes for the competing restuarants. Visitors pay $10 at the door to get in to this all you can eat dessert extravaganza, and all the money goes to the The ARC. My mom sets up the O'Charley's booth every year, and for the second year in a row my husband and I have helped her set up and serve. (Last year I wrote a post about the chocolate cake and The ARC. Here's a link if you want to read it: Why Eat Cake When You Can Eat Chocolate Chocolate Cake?)

I wish you could have seen our table! We served chocolate cake, key lime pie, and Magic Fluff (a secret recipe known only to a privileged few and served exclusively at this festival). And the decorations were very pretty. But since SOMEONE (me) forgot to bring her camera, I have no pictures! (urgh) So just imagine, a lovely light green table cloth with a big light green flower arrangement in the middle, some glittery red hearts, red heart garland, a spread of Valentine napkins, and three tiered-trays (two clear glass, and one ruby red) of yummy sweets! It was very nice!

Now onto this week's menu:

Breakfasts: Biscuits, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Bagel-Fuls.

Lunches: Grilled Chicken Salad, Baked Potato, Spinach Dip w/ chips, Spaghetti Os, Leftovers from dinner

Monday - Pepper Fried Chicken w/ leftover sour cream gravy, alfredo pasta sides, peas
Tuesday - Shake & Bake Chicken w/ peas & corn
Wednesday - Red Beans & Rice, corn, & crescent rolls
Thursday - Tacos
Friday - Chicken Stir-Fry with Asian Fried Rice (homestyle bake)
Saturday - Beef Stew
Sunday - Chicken Poulet

    Sherry, it was great. My mom took some pictures. If I think about it, I'll try to get a few from her so that I can post them.

    The pepper fried chicken was delicious. I'll post the recipe soon.

    April - I love Shake n Bake too. It's so easy, and when I can't think of anything to make, it's a fast solution! I also use it as a coating when I make buffalo chicken.

    Kristin - Thanks for visiting. I hope you'll come back soon!

    Barbara - Your welcome! The poulet is awesome. I make it about once a month. My husband loves it! He jokes that he's going to start selling it to people.
