Menu Plan Monday Family Favorites ~ Sept. 22nd!

It's a special week for Menu Plan Monday. It the Family Favorites Edition. Laura (who hosts Menu Plan Monday) asked to post one or more recipes or links for the items that are on our menu. This is so that all of you out in blogland will know that you will see a recipe on every person's menu they have posted. I can't say that the items on my menu this week are my family favorites but that's what's for dinner this week. It is my goal that every menu item I have posted will have a link to my cooking blog with the recipe. This will of course take some time so please stick with me. Last week Pierogi Skillet Dinner was on my menu. Click on the link to see that recipe. After you check out my menu for the week visit Laura's blog "I'm an Organizing Junkie" to see what hundreds of others have planned for their meals this week.
This week's menu:
Monday ~ I work late and usually it's Daddy's night to figure it out for him and Allison but this week, I prepped the ground beef and pizza sauce for him for Pronto Pasta Italiano. This is a good kid friendly meal. I'll heat the leftovers up Tuesday morning to put in Allison's thermos for her lunch. The recipe and the picture are both from Kraft Foods.
Tuesday ~ Since this next dish was on the menu a couple of weeks ago and we didn't get to it, Curtis has requested Southwest Chicken, oven fries & corn. This recipe is from a restaurant I used to work at years ago. It's so simple. You just bake or grill chicken breasts and then baste them with barbecue sauce just prior to them being done. Cover them with shredded cheddar cheese and put them under the broiler to melt the cheese. Once the cheese is melted, place them on the serving plate and sprinkle fresh diced tomatoes and bacon bits on top. Serve with extra barbecue sauce for dipping.

Wednesday ~ Tuna Noodle Casserole
This is not my picture but it looks very close to mine.

Thursday ~ Slow Cooker Swiss Steak. This is a new recipe for me. Curtis loves the recipe that I found online somewhere but it's too tomatoey (if that's even a word). I found this recipe on Betty Crocker. It's almost identical to the other recipe except it adds beef gravy to it. I think this will solve my tomato problem.
Friday ~ Pizza Night.

This picture is mine and if you want the story of the odd looking pizza, click here. Oh and by the way, when you read that entry please know that I am not a home made pizza virgin any more! I made it a couple of Friday's ago when I was on vacation and it came out awesome! Curtis ate 8 pieces!
Saturday ~ Dinner at Grandmas.

Sunday ~ Pork Tenderloin. I am open to new recipes here! Please let me know if you have a recipe that you would like to share. I'll take any and all ideas...oven, slow cooker, etc. Thank you!

Have Fun!
