    I haven't done my weekly menu yet.
    I made Jessica's Spicy Sausage Pasta. I didn't have a can of Ro-tel so I used Taco Bell's Verde Salsa. It was wonderful. Oh I used Italian Sausage. Thank you Jessica for sharing the recipe years ago (March 2015)

    Glad you enjoyed it!

    I think we may just order pizza tonight and then I need to make my meal plan for the rest of the week and go to the Commissary.

    Lucie, Hachis looks like a good way to use up leftover chicken.

    Exactly Diedra. You cut potatoes in squares, cook them (not too tender), flush water, add a can of Brown gravy (esta sauce), with chopped up bell peppers and cooked chicken and heat up. Easy-peasy

    I pulled out some frozen BBQ Beef from the freezer. I made Dh and DD with cheese, pickles and some onion. I had onions and pickled jalapeños. Tossed on some chips for a well balanced meal. lol

    DH and I ended up going out to dinner last night at Outback. The food was good but the service was crap. I love Outback but i'm about done with the location closest to us. The past few times we've been there it has been crappy service.

    Sorry to hear that, MrsSoup! Nothing like paying $$$ for a meal and then having to deal with something like that!

    I made lasagna this weekend - some for the freezer and some for us!

    Tonight I am getting a turkey out of the chest freezer to start thawing. I need the room for cookies!!! LOL We will make it this weekend and I'll make a couple of sides to go with - I'm thinking roasted butternut squash (I have some in the freezer) and Rhodes rolls (from you guessed it - the freezer) :D

    I've been rotten with a menu this week. Tonight I had down to make potato pancakes but Dh took a late nap. He didn't get up until after 6 so I picked up mexican take out. Cheese enchiladas and hard shell tacos for sleepyhead. I'll move the potato pancakes to Friday. Thursday I think LC22 will be here so I'll make something she wants. Yesterday I made a dish my stepson invented when he was about 15. Polish sausage, sliced potatoes, broccoli with cheese. Very good.

    For this weeks menu I give out a big Thanks to Lana. She was posting on FB when I was hungry and making my menu.

    Monday-Japanese Rice Bowl and Mushroom Tempura--(we call this Lick your plate dinner) Thanks to Blue Apron.
    Tuesday-BBQ Chicken Sliders (something Lana posted on FB) and I'll fix a Kale Salad.
    Wednesday-Cabbage and Noodles (Lana's FB) It has pasta, cabbage and Kielbasa.
    Thursday-will have to ask DD what she wants (probably Culver's or Mexican)
    Friday and Saturday-I'm waiting to see if LC22 is coming to see what she wants to make
    Sunday-Leftovers or Soup made from the leftovers in the refrig

    I tend to adjust the ingredients on this recipe. I fry sweet potatoes, Asparagus, mushrooms and shrimp but no meat works well too.

    I haven't tried any of the four recipes but Dh picked the BBQ Chicken one. Next I want to try the Breakfast ones. Thanks Lana!

    My hubby is gone this week so I can make things for my brother and I that I wouldn't normally make.

    Tonight we had creamed cauliflower soup
    Tomorrow we're having pumpkin alfredo and pasta.
    Wednesday night I think I'll do a make your own chef salad with the guest I have coming over. I do the works...bacon, eggs, cheese, beets, green onions, tomatoes and whatever else they may want to add.

    I made the BBQ Chicken Sliders for dinner tonight. They were great. I'll make them again. I had Dh pick up a roasted chicken for them and now I have the bones in the Instant Pot. Will probably use the broth for Sunday's dinner.

    I have made a menu for this week (not something I usually do) and am waiting for DH to return home form chiropractor to give him shopping list. (I just texted him and he (he called) was already at the store so gave him the list.

    Alright, it's a busy work week so I will commit to making this last tomorrow. I'll be gone for almost 11 hours each day probably so I need to do a freezer sweep and see what I've already made in small quantities since it's only 2 of us for the week. I'll be back tomorrow with a menu.
