Menu Plan Monday – 1/25

It’s a short menu this week since the kids and my hubby will be going out of town this weekend.  While they’re gone, I may try a new recipe or two.  Or, more realistically, I’ll just fend for myself from the pantry/freezer/fridge for the weekend since I don’t “have” to cook.

Monday – Asian Chicken Salad (recipe below) with breadsticks

Tuesday – Spaghetti (with sauce from the freezer), salad, and yeast rolls (I’ll make a big batch of rolls and freeze the leftovers for later meals.)

Wednesday – Chili (E has dance classes – 3 of them – on Wednesday’s so we eat from the crock pot.)  I’ll have tortilla chips and crackers on hand to be served with the chili.
