Menu Plan Monday. June 18th

Happy Monday! My precious nephews arrived on Saturday and all the cousins are having lots of fun! (This post will be quick because they are all at camp this morning and I need to get some chores finished while I have a chance!) This is one of my favorite weeks every summer. Waking up each morning to all the cousins laughing is my kind of alarm clock!

What will I be cooking this week? 
 Veggie Lasagna (my sister sent this with my nephews!) , salad & garlic bread.
Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken with potatoes and green peas.
Sundried Tomato Pasta Salad ( a recipe from a friend--I'll ask her if I can share it with you all!)
Thursday- Baked Creamy Chicken Taquitos  with fresh fruit and black beans.
Friday- takeout from our favorite sushi place
Saturday- Cottage Cheese Noodles (another recipe from a friend) with salad.
Sunday- leftovers

Also, I have a fantastic brownie recipe to share with you. It's from my dear friend, Ashley. Little Polka Dot and I made these last week and I told Ashley I'm not sure if I should thank her or be a little miffed because I ate 5 of them in one day! :) Thanks for sharing this, Ashley!

5 Minute Fudgy Brownies

3/4 c. cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 c. vegetable oil 
1/2 c. boiling water (measure accurately)
1  and 1/3c. all purpose flour
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt

Stir cocoa and baking soda in mixing bowl. Blend in 1/3c. vegetable oil (save the rest for later). Add boiling water; stir until mixture thickens. Stir in sugar, eggs, and remaining oil. Stir until smooth.
Add flour, vanilla, and salt. Blend completely. Pour into a lightly greased brownie pan and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Cool.

Have you made anything sweet lately? I'd love to know!
