Menu Monday February 13 – Sunday February 19

Yep! Late again.  I think I am going to change my menu dates….but I know most people do their grocery shopping over the weekend.  Gotta work on being HELPFUL!!!


Salsa Con Queso Chicken

1 box chicken stuffing mix

4 chicken breasts (I was out of chicken breasts)

1/2 cup salsa con queso

4 oz cream cheese

1 can cream of . . .  soup

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Layer bottom of 9×13 baking dish with stuffing mix.  Next, layer the chicken breasts.
  3. Combine queso, cream cheese, and soup til well mixed.  Pour over chicken.
  4. Cover with foil.  Bake for 30 minutes, or til cooking thermometer reads 165 degrees inserted at thickest point of chicken breast (another tip, but hard to tell with this recipe, when the juices from the chicken run clear when speared).  Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Serve with garlic green beans and corn.


Ham and Vegetable Soup

This is a great time to use up all those veggies from last week that didn’t get used

Saute onion, celery and ham for deeper flavor.  Throw in diced potatoes and carrots.  Let simmer 30 minutes.  Add frozen corn and canned tomatoes for 5 minutes.  Add herbs to your liking. Serve with cheese chunks and olives:)




Salsa Chicken

Here is another easy, no hassle recipe.  Unfortunately salsa and chicken twice in one week!! Sorry guys…..but I let my husband help in the planning, and variety isn’t his concern:)  But this is a great crock pot recipe.  Throw it in before you go to work and it is ready when you get home!!!
