I'm not doing well for menu plans this week but thought I'd at least start the September thread ...

September 5-11
  • Sunday ~ Leftover chicken and salad
  • Monday ~ Too much snacking while watching tennis so didn't make dinner.
  • Tuesday ~ Cabbage Patch Stew (with ground turkey ... trying to use less red meat)
  • Wednesday ~ Sausalito sandwiches, corn on the cob (so good this time of year)
  • Thursday ~ Shrimp and salad
  • Friday (travel day) - Local Myth Pizza
  • Saturday ~ Chelan burgers

Thanks for the reminder! I jotted mine down, but not sure how closely I'll follow it this week. Things keep getting in the way ...

Monday -- leftover Italian pasta salad from the dock party (it has salami, pepperoni, and cheese cubes in it, so there is some protein)
Tuesday -- grilled chicken, veggie skewers (storm blew in, so it wound up being baked, and it did corn on the cob, instead of skewers)
Wednesday -- Italian sausage in the crock pot, with peppers and onions, pasta salad
Thursday -- group get-together
Friday -- pizza, salad
Saturday -- (open)
Sunday -- (open)

In front of my computer
Monday-Taco bowls but the place had a sign on the door closed so we hit up another place. I had Hawaii Tacos --pork and mango. Probably the best taco I have ever had that wasn't beef.
Tuesday- BBQ ribs (another best I have ever made in my life), pea salad, the last of our tomatoes and cucumbers. (took some to stepmom)
Wednesday- Ham, sweet potatoes and coleslaw (taking some to stepmom)
Thursday-I just ate lunch gluten free General Tso chicken from Aldi's frozen food dest-very good so nothing comes to mind for menus right now. lol

Would you share your recipe. This sounds good.

Crock Pot Apple Cranberry Chicken Breasts

boneless skinless chicken breasts
Layer each with --
diced green onions (or use thinly sliced onion as a substitute)​
a sprinkle of dried sweetened cranberries​
dried apples, chopped (or substitute fresh sliced or diced apples)​
chopped garlic (or a sprinkle of garlic powder)​
a teaspoon of brown sugar​
a thin slice of butter​

Add to the crock: 2 tablespoons water and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. I've also substituted a splash or orange juice or a splash of pineapple juice. I'm sure apple cider would work well, too.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours. I like to serve over a bed of wild rice.

That sounds so good. Love the little extra kick suggestions.
Some of the ingredients are not regular staples in my house, so I substitute what I have on hand. I'm a single person household and a bunch of green onions would be all slime before I used them all. Enjoy!
