menu plan monday ~ september 23, 2013

My cat Zak had surgery to remove two injured toes last Wednesday. He came home Thursday and has spent the rest of the week sleeping in a box in the craft/scrapbook room. He still can’t quite figure out what that big blue thing is on his leg. It causes him all kinds of trouble when he tries to stand up.

He has tried every conceivable configuration of his body in the box to find a comfortable spot.

He seems to be doing fine, though sleeping a lot. He goes back to the vet this week for a check up.

I’ve been incapacitated the past few days with having to elevate my leg. This week, I hope I can get up and do more. I love the fall season. Cooler days mean I can begin to add soups back into the menu. The Chicken Taco Chili on Saturday’s menu is really delicious. I hope you’ll give it a try. It can be made in the crock pot as done in the original recipe, or made stove top, as I do.

Cheesy Potato/Sausage Soup

Ham and Beans
Sliced Tomatoes

Cheese Tortellini with Mushroom Sauce
Garlic Bread
Garden Salad

Crock Pot Brown Sugar Chicken ~ Didn’t get to this last week, so am adding it to this week’s menu.
Peas and Carrots
Garden Salad

Turkey and/or Ham Sandwiches
Homemade Buns
Garden Salad
White Bean Dip with Homemade Pita Chips

Lunch ~ Chicken Taco Chili
Supper ~ Homemade Pizza

Baked Spaghetti and Meatballs made with my own spaghetti sauce.
Garden Salad
Jiffy Corn Casserole
Steamed Sugar Snap Peas
