Week 578 Weekly Menu

Happy Sunday! This week I attended the Mom 2 Summit and it was, as usual, really wonderful. This year I came home with a list of things to do that are going to improve my {aging} blog. So get ready! Changes are in store and they are all for the better! (Although, honestly, some of those changes are pretty boring and you won’t even know they  happened…but I’m good with that because spring cleaning always feels good, even when no one sees inside your closets!)

Weekly menu from This Week for Dinner for the week of May 7, 2018, including pesto chicken pasta and chicken tortilla soup!

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burritos (I’ll be eating mine as a brown rice bowl :))

– Pesto Chicken Pasta

Chicken Tortilla Soup

– Leftovers

– Red Beans and Rice (trying a new recipe, will let you know how it goes!)

– Eat out night

Okey dokey, your turn! Please share your menus in the comments! Can’t wait to see what everyone has cooking! (That and I can’t wait for a list of dinner ideas that I can steal for next week!)

      Do you have a recipe for your cheesy chicken and rice?

    • Vicki Tunell


      I don’t really have a set recipe, it is just what my kids like :). I take about 1.5 lbs of chicken, onion powder, celery seed, some chicken broth or other seasoning, cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups, and put them all in the crockpot. Cook for around five hours or so, then add in cooked rice, cooked broccoli and a bunch of cheddar, stir it all up and serve. It’s easy and my kids think it is the best :).
