Menu: Week of February 28 - March 6

Ready for a new menu plan? Here you go! As always, I will be posting the recipes (and linking to them on this post) throughout the week, so if you'd like to follow along with me, print out the shopping list and bookmark this page so you can come back for the recipes. It's going to be a yummy week!

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

Monday: Tofu Rancheros - in an effort to use up the leftover tofu from this meal, I discovered this yummy recipe!
Tuesday: Spicy Tuscan Soup - back by popular demand!
Wednesday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole - so much easier than the original dish
Thursday: leftover/takeout night - might I recommend the soup? It only improves with age.
Friday: Thai Chicken Pizza - a pizza that tastes gourmet but is a cinch to put together
Saturday: Done-in-a-Buns and Potato Wedges - or Pigs in a Blanket, call them what you will, this is sure to be a kid-pleasing meal
Sunday: Pioneer Woman Fried Chicken and Mashed Potatoes - straight from the cookbook, you didn't think I'd stop with Blackberry Cobbler did you?
Family Night Treat: Chippy Blond Brownies - so addicting, like chocolate chip cookies in bar form

You ready? Let's get shopping!

The amounts listed here are for a family of 3-4. If you are feeding a larger family, double the amounts that are asterisked. For Menu Plan Explanation, click here. For all of my menu plans, click here.
