Meal Plan Monday for August 15 thru August 21

Ah, ready for another week!  It’ll be busy for us. My mother has 2 doctor’s appointments that I’ll have to take her to. One of my best friend’s just got a new puppy and I promised to go over and meet her (didn’t take much convincing, I love puppies!). My only grandchild has her 2nd birthday on Tuesday and I will be making her cake. Well actually cupcakes that will (hopefully) look like Elmo from Sesame Street. And my youngest son starts college on Wednesday. How is your week looking?

Okay, here’s my plan for this week:
BBQ Chicken

Spinach Manicotti

Taco Soup

Fast Food (my break from cooking!)

Grilled Steak
Fried potatoes and onions
Green Beans

Chicken Alfredo
Brussels Sprouts


Today, I’ll share my Spinach Manicotti recipe:

1 pkg manicotti shells
1 bag of frozen chopped spinach
1 large container of cottage cheese
1 can or jar of spaghetti sauce
1 12oz bag Mozzarella
1 8 oz bag Cheddar
1/2 t pepper
1 t garlic salt or powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Boil manicotti shells until done.
Microwave spinach until no longer frozen, and is at least warm (usually 5 minutes). Drain the spinach.
In a large bowl, mix spinach, mozzarella, 1/2 of the Cheddar, cottage cheese, pepper and garlic until blended.
When manicotti noodles are done, fill them with the spinach/cheese mixture and lay in a baking dish.
Cover with spaghetti sauce and remainder of cheddar.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Have a great week!

  1. Thanks Cristi. It is yummy and is actually better during the winter months (kind of like chili) but we eat it year a round.
