Menu: Week of January 31 - February 6

To celebrate my 10th menu plan here on The Menu Mama, I decided to put together an all-star menu of my most popular recipes so far. These are the recipes that I received the most feedback on and I think are especially worth repeating.

Meatless Monday: Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup - who could forget Amy's fun guest post?
Tuesday: Italian Breaded Pork Chops - a family favorite
Wednesday: Thai Honey Peanut Chicken - my most popular post by far
Thursday: Leftover/Takeout Night - relax!
Friday: Peking Chicken Pizza - what can I say, just yum!
Saturday: Creamed Chicken over Biscuits - you guys loved this comfort dish
Sunday: Beef with Snow Peas - I can't wait to make this one again!
Family Night Treat: Easy Microwave Caramel Corn - a quick classic 

Sounds good, huh? Let's get shopping!

I'm linking up with I'm an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.
