I had training from 1pm to 5:30pm at work, then worked from 11pm to 7am; then the meat I got out for lunch was not thawed by 11am so we went out. Moving the remaining meals back a day. We are taking the RV out this weekend, unsure if the weekend plan will happen but here it is:

Monday
Chopped BBQ Chicken on a Bun with Chips

Tuesday

Chocolate Pie* (D)

Wednesday
Spaghetti with Garlic Bread and Salad (L)

Thursday
Fried Chicken Breast with Au Graten Potatoes (L)

Friday

A little info about my menu plan - on days that I only have a plan for lunch, I work that evening; on days I only have a plan for dinner, I worked the night shift the night before and slept through lunch; on nights I do YOYO (you're on your own) I am making the transition from days back to nights and take a long nap in the afternoon/early evening. Typically days I have breakfast, we are out in the RV, it seems to be the only time I can get up early enough to cook breakfast, lol. and * is a New Recipe.

Menu Plan 08.04.14

I can't believe it is already August! This year is just flying by!! For various reasons, last weeks menu plan was totally rearranged. For starters, John had to go to West Texas on Wednesday. I decided to change my schedule at work so I could go with him. So, I was off Wednesday (but gone all day) and worked Friday. We had company Saturday for lunch so I changed the plan there to feed more people. And of course with all the rearranging and changing some things just didn't happen and will be on the menu for this week.

Monday
Grilled Cheese with Chips

Tuesday
Fish n Taters

Wednesday
Chicken Tenders with Mashed Potatoes (L)

Thursday
Spaghetti with Garlic Bread (L)

Friday
Sausage Sloppy Joes* with Fries (L)
Buttermilk Pie* (D)
Date Night

Saturday
Meat and Potato Patties with Veggies (L)
YOYO

Sunday
BBQ Chicken on a Bun with Chips

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

I pinned this recipe about a year ago. However, when I tried going to the blog to make it, I was blocked. The pin did include the ingredients, so I used these (mostly) and did my own take on this recipe for Cheesy Jalapeno Chicken and Rice Casserole from Life with the Crust Off. Here is what I came up with:

2 cups cooked brown rice
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt
4 oz can of green chilies
1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese, divided
splash of milk, about 2 Tbsp
french fried onions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees, 375 for convection and RV ovens. Spray 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Spread cooked rice in bottom of dish. Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces. In medium bowl mix together chicken, soup, yogurt, chilies, one cup of cheese and milk.
Pour over the rice. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, top with more cheese then with the french fried onions. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
