Menu Plan Monday for One


The planning of this week’s menu is inspired by the group participating in Menu Plan Monday at I’m An Organizing Junkie.

  1. Sunday Dinner, salad. When the kiddos were growing up, we had this every Sunday.Throw the following in a crockpot before leaving in the morning and it’s already to eat when dinner rolls around. 3 pieces of chicken, sliced veggies, can of creamed soup, 1/2 packet of Lipton’s onion soup mix and one can of some kind of liquid (beer, wine, apple juice). Cook until tender, about 6 hours. Divide leftover chicken  for 2 other meals this week.
  2.  BBQ Hamburger (no bun), brown rice, leftover veggies (from Sunday Dinner). Make enough rice for dinner on day 6.
  3.  Chicken Tortilla Soup, mixed salad. To make the soup add all the follwing into a pot and heat until hot: shredded chicken, 1 can chicken broth, 1 can mexican style tomatoes-undrained, 1/2 can black beans drained and rinsed, 1 cup kernel corn (frozen or fresh). Place crushed tortilla chips in bowl. Pour in soup. Top with avocado.
  4.  Tuna Salad, jello, tortilla chips and salsa.
  5. Baked potato with baked beans and cheese.
  6. Chicken Taco with salsa, brown rice, black beans, green salad.  Mix shredded chicken with 1/2 pkt chicken taco seasoning and some water – heat up until spices are thoroughly mixed in. Put in taco shell with lettuce, diced tomatoes and cheese.
  7. Veggie patty, (healthy) baked potato soup, mixed salad, jello.
