Menu Plan Monday - October 11, 2010

What a beautiful Indian Summer weekend! The warm temperatures has necessitated a slight shift in my scheduled meals away from anything resembling soup. On Friday we enjoyed a wonderfully easy main-dish salad that was filling, too:

Frito Salad
1/2 Head Lettuce, washed and torn
1 Can Chili Beans, washed and drained
2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 C Catalina Dressing
1 Bag Fritos
Tomatoes, chopped (on the side in this house!)

Right before serving, throw everything in a bowl and toss. Even my non-salad eaters snarfed it up!

Come back Thursday for another yummy recipe...

This week we'll be enjoying:

Monday  - Chili con Queso, Chips

Tuesday - Alfredo Chicken Spaghetti

Wednesday (AWANA)- Chicken Nuggets, Popcorn

Thursday (Mom's Meeting) - Hot Cornbread Sandwiches

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - French Onion Soup, Lots of Fresh Bread

Our menus for last year can be found at our website. Breakfast menu is here; lunch menu is here.
