Menu Planning Monday. Jan. 30

Vintage Brown Plate from a Charlotte Antique Store

  Well, the menu planning is going well. Last week's Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken was a huge hit! My son tried it and asked for seconds (this rarely happens, so I was thrilled)!

Here's what's cooking in my kitchen this week!

Monday- Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken from Mel's Kitchen Cafe blog. Serve with salad and wheat rolls.
Tuesday- Sunday's leftover Vegetarian "Meat"loaf from Branny Boils Over
Wednesday- Beef Daube Provenal. Serve with salad and bread.
Thursday- Tex-Mex Fajitas . Serve with black beans and fresh fruit.
Friday-Take-Out from our favorite sushi spot!
Saturday- Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos from Pennies on a Platter Serve with a salad.
Sunday -Super Bowl Party

I feel like I should add a disclaimer to my menu planning posts. Both of my children are picky eaters. Some of these meals I've planned will be teamed with peanut butter&jelly or Kraft Mac and Cheese:)

Hope you all have a fantastic week! What's cooking in your kitchen? I'd love to know!

I'm linking up with Menu Plan Monday !


  1. Confession:I LOVE meal planning! I get such satisfaction out of scouting out healthful recipes that my family will enjoy, filling the kitchen with yummy smells, and setting a nice table. I think it's all just fun. :-)
    Your meals look delicious!! Thanks for giving me some ideas! I keep these running lists on Evernote (recipes attached) of things I want to try, my meal plan, etc.

    This week, we be having...
    Funkadelic Chili Mac (Hungry Girl... Her recipes are so yummy, healthful, and family friendly, but the names make me laugh :-))

  3. I've got to rush over and look at this vegetarian meatloaf! I've always wanted to find a recipe for that. Probably could have, but forgot about it until you wrote about it.

  9. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your lovely blog. I loved that name, Polka Dot Skies and came here instantly upon seeing it. I call Carolina home these days and enjoy connecting with other bloggers from the area. Hope to visit you regularly from now on.

  10. Hi Teacup Moments! Thank you for stopping by! I just hopped over to your blog and instantly spotted your photos from Asheville and Charleston--two of our favorite places!

  12. I'm so happy to have you here! Thanks for taking time to say hello!

  13. Did they like the pasta on Monday?

  14. Katy, My hubby and I enjoyed it! The kids would not try it. One day, they will realize what they are missing. I could not bring myself to use two cups of heavy cream! I made a roux, hoping to thicken it, it was good, but the cream would have made it heavenly. I'll go all out next time!


Thanks for taking time to say hello! Instead of sending emails, I always leave replies in the comment section. So if you have a question, check back here for the answer:)
