Menu Plan Monday 2012 ~ Week of November 12th

Last week, we had a couple of changes to the menu plan.  Resulting in 2 new recipes. Crock Pot Chicken & Peppers (link below) and Braided Spaghetti Bread (recipe will post this week).  Both were a huge success.  Definite keepers!

This week is going to be Chicken Week.  Last week, I cooked up a lot of chicken and chopped and froze for future meals.  I originally planned on using it a few weeks from now, but since I need to work on a shopping list for Thanksgiving, I want to avoid grocery shopping for this week.  We have plenty to choose from between the pantry and freezer for this week.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Over the weekend, my brother sent over a big bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup for my birthday.  (Thanks, Tom and Jen!) Since our meals were already planned out for the weekend, we didn't get a chance to enjoy it.  Today is the perfect day for this since I'll be catching up on laundry and other chores today and will appreciate not having to cook tonight!  

I'm really looking forward to preparing this simple, frugal meal again.  Grace and I have a play date this week, this easy meal will be a snap to throw together while she (hopefully) naps or relaxes on the sofa! 

Another easy meal since I have homemade broth and diced chicken already set aside for this recipe!  I'll just have to find the time to get some veggies chopped between my other chores today.  

We still have a bit of this leftover, (no complaints here!) so we'll be finishing it up one night this week.

I bought a spaghetti squash a while back and really need to use it before it's too late!  I originally planned to try a new recipe with it, but we just love this one so much! 

Now that you know what we're eating this week, let us know in the comments what's for dinner at your house this week! Or, if you need more menu planning inspiration?

I'm stopping by from Menu Plan Monday. I'm very intrigued by Braided Spaghetti Bread. We're having Spaghetti and Meatballs at our house tonight.
