What’s on the Menu? Menu Monday!

What I’m drinking – Joe’s Coffee Decaf, from Trader Joe’s

Happy Tuesday (oops!)

Yep, I’m a lazy tooshie… I had the menu written on time but neglected to write a post!

I’m going to have a brag about what we had on Sunday night!  We had one of my favorites for comfort food.  We had vegetarian chicken with a mushroom cream sauce (just a splash of half n half).  This time I added some pine nuts and wilted the rest of a bag of swiss chard that I had on hand.  So yummy!  Then, I used some potatoes I had on hand to make mashed potatoes.  Instead of mashing it with butter or heavy cream, I used broth.  I’m so proud that I even thought of that!  Then the mushroom sauce paired perfectly with the potatoes as gravy.  I had the leftovers Monday afternoon with some veggie chicken strips.

So, anyway, here’s what we are eating for dinner this week!  My parents are in town this weekend, so I planned a repeat meal because it was so good! For more information on how I menu plan, see my previous blog post!
