Menu Plan Monday: December 16th

So the weekend kinda flew right by and here I am Monday night just now getting my stuff together. As soon as I saw this photo I knew I had to try this.  Friday can't come soon enough!  Here is the lineup for this week.

Greek Marinated Chicken
Does this not look amazing.  Link to recipe below!

Eat and shop.  Not quite what I had in mind, but this is what happens when I am unprepared and take starving boys to WalMart.  Mc Donalds.  

Taco Tuesday.  I just might make this a thing.  Trying out different tacos of course, but this could become a regular around here! I think I will pull Anthony in to be my prep chef for this.  He has been asking to "cut stuff" for a while now.  And browning the meat and seasoning it is pretty easy stuff too!  

Chicken Tetrazzini. This is what the boys call the white spaghetti.  And its also one of the only ways I can get them to eat mushrooms!  Salads are great with this too!

Steak with Spanish rice and beans.  I'm thinking of making homemade flour tortillas to go with this.  We will see how that works out!

Greek Marinated Chicken from Budget Bytes with salad and this slow cooker creamed corn.  Two new recipes in one night?  Pray for me.  Somehow I didn't get around to making this corn last week so lets see if I can try it this week!  

Tuna Noodle Casserole.  Now that Anthony, my 8 year old knows how to make this, it is his suggestion every week.  I finally gave in but we have to learn something else quick.  If he is willing to learn, I am willing to teach.  My dad was the cook in our family, so I love watching my so follow in his grandpa Jims footsteps.  

Roast Chicken:  Good ole Sunday dinners.  Salad and roast potatoes on the side.  Yum!

So there is what we are cooking up this week!  Who does all the cooking in your kitchen?  I know most little girls love baking and cooking with their moms but does anyone else have a little boy who loves the kitchen?  I love having my boys in there with me!
