Menu Plan Monday 11/26


Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Organizing Junkie.

I am still finding it a struggle to work fish into our diets 2-3 times a week. If anyone has suggestions, I would be interested.

Monday: Dinner out with the Millers at Sirloin Stockade. The best part is that we won the dinner! 🙂

Tuesday: Ham and Pea Soup (recipe below)

Wednesday: Chicken Pot Pie

Thursday: Pine Nut Crusted Tilapia

Friday: Tuna Potato Supper

Saturday: Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Pork Chops*

Sunday: Salmon Casserole

Ham and Pea Soup

2 onions, chopped

1 c. celery, chopped

1 c. green pepper, chopped

1 chicken bouillon cube

4 c. potatoes, diced

3 T. Flour

1 t. Zesty Salt-free Seasoning

1/8 t. white pepper

1/2 t. black pepper

2 c. milk

1 c. chopped ham

1 c. frozen peas

In a Dutch oven, add water, bouillon, onion, celery and pepper. Cook 5 minutes. Add potatoes, cook twenty minutes more. Stir in flour, salt and peppers. Slowly add milk, half a cup at a time. Stir constantly. Heat through. Add ham and frozen peas. Heat ten minutes and serve.

*The Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Pork Chops recipe is from the Fall 2007 issue of Taste of Home’s Cooking for 2.

    When you figure out how to add fish in three times a week, let me know! I struggle with the same thing, although I confess, I’m not trying too hard! 🙂 My problem seems to be getting enough veggies in. I have the fruit down really well, and find I can contrive any number of ways to add fruit to meals I never thought about using it in before. The veggies just seem to require a lot more work. And the fish? I just plain don’t really care for it, so feel like I have really done well to eat it ONCE a week! We do take fish oil supplements, though.

    Hope you have a good week!

    I don’t know about fitting more fish in, but I wish we could too. Have a good week!

    I am beginning to think that the fish oil supplements are the answer. There are only so many variations on a fish theme.

    I’m not good with the fish dinners either. I’m with you. Just take the supplements.
    The chicken pot pie sounds really good. I’ll have to try this one.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Sounds like it would be a winner in my house.
