Menu Plan July 11-17

This was an interesting week with food.  Things that I did not think would work, worked and some never fails, failed!  Oh, well.  I guess that is what happens when you cook for a husband and three little Beanes.  Our Fourth of July dinner with my mom went well.  Everyone loved the fried chicken and the Little Beanes were hit or miss on the side items. It was the Potato Kielbasa that was such a surprise.  Stirng Beane loved it!  It had some spinach in it so I was just hoping for the best and prayed that no one would notice.  Turns out, String Beane has been watching some Popeye cartoons lately and was siked to try the spinach to see if it would work!  Who says TV is bad for children?  He ate it up and happily went off to T-Ball practice to test his newly acquired strength.  Pizza night was the usual hit with most of us.  Butter Beane ate his and asked for more.  String Beane was indifferent.  That was a first for him and pizza night.  Can't win them all!  Blue Plate Beef Patties are a family favorite and went over well.  The Cheesecake Factory Madeira Chicken was sort of a flop this time.  I had made this before and it went over well.  I think I over cooked the chicken this time.  It was a little tough.  The upside was, I got to eat a lot of asparagus!  I love that veggie.  So here is my plan for this week.  Let's hope for the best and see what happens.

Turkey Tostadas
Mexican Rice

Sausage Pancakes

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole (recipe to come)

Taco Skillet Recipe

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Fresh corn on the cob
