Menu Plan Monday

Well, it is that time of the week again! Last week, I was successful with my menus- I only changed up the order a little bit. And, we did not eat out for dinner on Wednesday! For those that are interested, here is the recipe for the Kikkoman Chicken I made last week. It turned out great and I changed it up a little from how I usually make it. We also really like the potatoes, but probably would eat them with something else next time.

Recipes from last week:
Kikkoman Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/3 c. mayonaise
4 tsp. distilled white vinegar
1 lg. garlic clove (this is worth it if you have it- if not I have used garlic powder or garlic salt, but it was not as good)

Blend the marinade and pour into a large plastic storage bag with the chicken. Marinate for 20 minutes, turning bag occasionally. Broil chicken 7 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center. Time: 35 minutes Serves: 4

When I broil it, as I always have in the past, it always ends up setting off my smoke alarm and it has always taken more than 7 minutes. This time, I put it in a 9x13 baking dish, poured some of the marinade on top and baked it at 400 for about 40 minutes. Again, until it is done in the center. (I turned it over about half way through and poured more marinade on top.) Then, I turned on the broiler for about 2 minutes until it looked golden and caramelized on top. It looks prettier that way. It was done at the same time as my potatoes and was much easier to clean up!

OK- on to this week's menu:

Monday: Enchilada Casserole with Chips

Tuesday: Breakfast- Hash Brown Casserole, Biscuits

Wednesday: Caesar Pork Chops, Seasoned Potato Wedges, Cheddar Biscuit Cups

Thursday: Root Hog (The term Andrew's family used growing up for leftovers- it has kinda stuck)

Friday: Bonfire with the college group at Don and Nancy's house.

Recipes for this week:

Enchilada Casserole
1 lb ground beef
19 oz can of Enchilada sauce
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Flour Tortillas
Tortilla Chips
Sour Cream

Heat oven to 350. Brown the hamburger and drain. Add 1/2 - 3/4 of enchilada sauce and about 1 cup of cheese (or how much you want- I usually just add until it is kind of stringy). Mix until the cheese is melted. Spoon mixture into flour tortillas, roll, and place in a 9x13 baking dish. Repeat and line until the dish is filled- there should be some of the mixture left over. Spoon the rest of the mixture and sauce over the enchiladas in the pan. Top with cheese. Bake about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into squares and serve.

Caesar Pork Chops
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 c. Kraft Creamy Caesar Salad Dressing
4 center cut, bone in pork chops (1/2 in. thick)
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Mix flour and Italian seasoning in one dish. Place dressing in another dish. Coat thawed pork chops with flour mixture and then dressing. Place in a greased glass baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until no longer pink in the center. (about 35-40 minutes)

Other recipes will be posted if they turn out well.
