Meal Plan Monday 5/6

Last week I completely underestimated the time it would take to thaw a whole chicken.  By Saturday it still wasn't completely thawed, so I added the recipe to this week's menu.  

I've been looking for some new lunch ideas and I can't wait to try the veggie bites and strawberry walnut muffins!  Here's our menu for this week:

Cereal, Bananas
Homemade Instant Oatmeal Packets
French Toast Casserole
Scrambled Eggs, Toast

Veggie Bites, Applesauce
Turkey & Cheese Sandwiches, Carrot Sticks w/Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Strawberry Walnut Muffins (add 1 cup strawberries and shredded carrots to recipe), Yogurt
SunButter & Jelly Sandwiches, Applesauce, Carrot Sticks

    Roast Sticky Chicken--Rotisserie Style, Rice, Green Beans, Biscuits

    Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole (with leftover roast chicken), Leftover Biscuits

I agree! My favorite recipe is their homemade fettucine alfredo.
