Meng Menu

The Meng Menu is back! I feel like our life is finally getting back to normal after our hospital stay with Benji, Micah’s surgery, and the boys’ birthday. I actually made a menu last week but I didn’t get organized enough to blog about it. It was too bad too because I used some great recipes that I would have loved to blog about. Maybe next time.

Sunday: Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, steamed broccoli
Monday: Creamy Chicken pockets, garden salad, cantaloupe 
Tuesday: Frozen meal–thank you Stouffer’s. 
Wednesday: Salmon patties, pasta dish, California veggies
Thursday: Slow cooker Mexican pulled pork w/ tortillas and taco fixin’s
Friday: Crispy Cheddar Chicken, rice, green beans
Saturday: Chicken parmesan bundles, pasta and sauce, caeser salad 
Ooo! Look at all those lovely links! I am really excited about trying some new recipes this week, namely the Creamy Chicken pockets and the Crispy Cheddar Chicken. Speaking of Crispy Cheddar Chicken, I forgot to buy Ritz crackers. GRR! I guess I’ll have to pick up those and the cream of chicken soup I forgot (picked up chicken noodle instead…wow. It happens)
Grocery shopping was $130 this week but I am defending myself by noting all the non-food stuff I got, including copy paper for the printer ($6), craft glue, dishwasher soap, liquid dish soap, eye liner, vitamins for the boys, and chapstick. So….I’ll forgive myself for going $5 over budget. 
BTW, I joined pinterest and have LOOOOOVED pinning recipes. It made putting together this blog post so much easier! My username on pinterest is menaglings. 
Happy Cooking this week! 

  1. The chicken pockets and the cheddar chicken look amazing! I wish they were dairy free. 🙁 Would be a nightmare for Caedmon…and he's to the point where he gets upset when we have yummy looking foods and he can't. I'll store the recipes…maybe someday I can use them! 🙂

I'd love to hear your story!
