Menu Plan Monday

It's another week of new recipes for us. I think I might have been too ambitious this week- some of these recipes had some pretty unusual ingredients I had to pick up yesterday. Once again, I came in way under budget for groceries, which is great because we ate out twice this weekend, and next week I'll have to pick up formula. Warren is finally eating more food than formula though, so that should be tapering off soon...Feb 25 can't get here soon enough! Do you have any idea how much cheaper than formula a gallon of whole milk is?
Anyway, here's what Team Engelbrecht will eating this week.
Sunday: quesadillas (carry over from last week bc we never made it)

Monday: chicken vindaloo (new recipe from an old Cooking Light magazine-looks sorta like a stew. Here's hoping I didn't overestimate my culinary skills...)

Tuesday: pretzel chicken with cheddar mustard sauce seriously, so good. It's probably my favorite dish, my signature. I used to make it all the time until the kids got scared of the food processor bc it was so loud, but then we got a new processor that's a LOT more quiet, so I guess I'll get to make it more often. Deep fried food is good on weight watchers, right?

Wednesday: chili not to overuse the word, but seriously. This is so good! Since I started cooking about five years ago, I've tried at least ten different chili recipes, and this one is hands down the best. I do tweak it just a tiny bit though, email me if you want to know the changes we make.

Thursday: whatever we take for OCF

Friday: chicken and basil calzones (new from another Cooking Light magazine)

Saturday: shepard's pie (new recipe from that old 'weeknight dinners' cookbook that I bought when we first moved in. I lost it, but we've been doing some serious cleaning and I found it last week! How great!)

So what's on your menu this week? If you need any ideas, head over here for some inspiration!
