Menu Plan Monday

Hello Folks, It's that time of the week's my Menu Plan for this week:

Monday: Honey Garlic Chicken Thighs with Roasted Red potatoes, asparagus and a Green Salad.

Tuesday: Meatloaf with Sidekick Noodles, cream corn and a Tomato/Cucumber Salad.

Wednesday: Tuna Melts and a Caesar Salad.

Thursday: Chicken Cacciatore with a Greek Salad.

Friday: Lasagna, Garlic Toast and Caesar Salad.

Saturday: Shredded BBQ Beef with Broccoli Cauliflower salad.

Sunday: Chili and buns

Here's the Recipe for the BBQ Beef from

5 lbs. chuck roast
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
2 c. water
2 3/4 c. catsup
1 tbsp. dry mustard
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced

Cut chuck roast in 3 to 4 inch cubes. Combine the beef, brown sugar, vinegar and water in a crockpot. Cook on Hi for several hours, then turn on low. When beef is very tender, remove beef from crockpot and pour off some of the liquid into a separate container. Shred beef with a knife. Return beef to crockpot and add catsup, mustard, onion and garlic and enough liquid beef water cooked in to make a nice consistency (like sloppy joes). Stir to blend. Cook on low until ready to serve. Serve on buns. Yield: 12 to 14 servings.
The Honey Garlic Chicken thighs are super easy...I am using this chicken wings recipe from and just substituting the Wings for Thighs...

1/2 cup liquid honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup water
3 tbsp ketchup
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp ground ginger

Combine all ingredients in sauce pan. Heat to boiling and simmer for 5 minutes.

Place 3 lbs chicken wings separated into a 9x13 baking dish. Pour sauce over wings. Marinate for 2 hrs.

Bake at 400 F for 1 hour, turning once.

I'm so jealous of those who can cook a square meal and have their kids and husbands eat it! Lovely meal plan...

How cute, I love the little button you featured. The Honey Garlic Chicken and Roasted Red Potatoes sounds like a real winner. I love potatoes and chicken.
