Happy Monday! I wanted to give you an update on the Chicken and Pumpkin soup from last week’s menu plan. Delicious! It will definitely will go into the dinner rotation. It was super easy because I already had chicken cooked in the freezer. It has a silky texture like a butternut squash soup but without the sweetness. Watch out on the chipotles in adobo though. They can be super hot! Next time I will just use chipotle powder.
Monday – Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Fajitas
Tuesday – Hamburgers on the grill. It’s going to be 80 degrees F and sunny!
Wednesday – Dine out
Thursday – Daughter requests Sheryl Crow’s Warm Hummus Soup
Friday – Spaghetti and home-made garlic bread

This week’s menu uses very little meat. I will use 2 chicken breasts divided between the Monday and Tuesday menu items.
Monday – Jamie Oliver’s Fajitas – a family favorite I serve with black beans
Tuesday – Sesame Peanut Noodles from the book Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals You Can Make in Minutes (Voice) – I serve them warm, not cold. I am able to re-use some of the same ingredients as the fajitas. I add lots of extra veg!
Wednesday – Soup night! Daughter requests Sheryl Crow’s Warm Hummus Soup – I never bother with the pesto or the croutons. The coriander is a must though! Super easy.
Thursday – Baked Ziti (vegetarian)
Friday – Night off for me – we will dine out somewhere budget-friendly
