Menu Plan Monday :: 10.10.2016

Monday, October 10, 2016
After a dreary weekend, we are finally waking up to some sun here in New Jersey. Today is a holiday for us, and aside from having two appointments, we plan to do some shopping with my sister and my nephew and some prep for a busy week ahead.

Here's what's on our plates this week:

Monday - Orange chicken. One of my favorite family-friendly cookbooks is Weelicious. It has so many recipes that are wonderful for both adults and kids. This one for orange chicken is a crowd pleaser in our house and often compares to Panda Express.

Tuesday - One-pot bucatini Bolognese. One of my favorite pasta sauces is Bolognese. It's so flavorful but generally takes hours to simmer to reach the height of flavor perfection. This recipe takes a fraction of the time and offers up the same robust flavor.

Wednesday - Breaded chicken cutlets with penna vodka. This is my FAVORITE penne vodka recipe. It's super easy to make and feeds a ton of people. Plus, it's not a heavy, creamy sauce. It's light and it coats the pasta evenly without drenching it.

Thursday - Lemon chicken orzo soup. I love a bowl of steaming hot soup on a chilly fall day. This soup really is good for the soul!

Friday - Take out or dinner out

Saturday - One-pot taco rigatoni. I love this twist on taco night. Same great taste, but a lot less mess! I'm excited to try this recipe. I'll let you know how it goes over in our house.

Sunday - Slow cooker seasoned chicken, potatoes, and green beans. I've been relying on slow cooker meals on the weekends so that we have more time to enjoy fall activities. I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it included all of our favorites. It seriously couldn't be easier!

To satisfy your sweet tooth, why not bake up a batch of these pumpkin magic bars? They look mouth watering!!
