Menu Plan Monday

Looking for my menu? You might skip down a paragraph, unless you want to hear my opinion of a fairly new product on the market that we used (unplanned, of course) in our menu last week. I typically don't do "reviews" on this site, and I'm not getting any kickback for this one, but my mom gave us a three-pack of salad dressings from the Wish-Bone Bountifuls line, and hubby and I really liked it! Just as I was about to pound out the chicken to make Simple Chicken Cordon Bleu, he informed me he wanted his without the ham and cheese. WHAT?! That's the whole point! So, I reached into the cupboard determined to try something new and placed my hands on a bottle of Wish-Bone Bountifuls Tuscan Romano Basil dressing (for my recipe, which is embarrasingly easy, click here). It was delicious and sooo simple. :) And, now that I've visited the Wish-Bone website, I see they have recipes listed for each flavor; I'm adding one to this week's menu plan (see First Time Friday below)!

When I saw your link on, I thought you were serving up Wild Squirrel for dinner. Glad to know it's not on your menu! Thanks for sharing...especially the First Time Friday links.

What?! You've never had wild squirrel? :) (kidding...just kidding)

Hmmmm . . . Wild Squirrel, you're scaring me. Just kidding. I love your menu plans and they've been helpful for me!

Glad you like them, Jen! (Though, it's a purely selfish endeavor. Without the menu plan, I'd be at a loss every night for dinner.) :)
