Menu Plan Monday 11/7/11

Each Monday I shall post our dinner menu plan for the current week.

The kids feed themselves for breakfast and lunch (usually lots of fruit, pasta, sandwiches, or leftovers) so I will only be posting the dinner menu, as that's what I cook.

Please link to your weekly menu in the comments if you are inclined. I'm always looking for new ideas.

Sunday - pizza night, salad
Monday - leftovers (kids will be gone for the night)
Tuesday - Crock pot BBQ chicken (chicken, bbq sauce), rice, salad
Wednesday - Country Frittata*, apple slices, salad
Thursday - Macaroni and Cheese, pumpkin muffins,
Friday - Chicken on the Grill, peppers and zucchini on the grill, salad
Saturday - leftover pizza

Country Frittata, from the recipe paper on top of the Philadelphia Cooking Creme container
1 tub Philadelphia Cooking Creme Original, divided (link to coupon below)
6 eggs
1/4 t black pepper
2 T butter
1 C chopped green pepper
4 green onions sliced or 1/8 cup chopped onion
1/4 C chopped smoked ham or chopped cooked turkey bacon or cooked diced chicken
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese

Set aside 1/4 C cooking creme.

Whisk remaining cooking creme with eggs until well blended.

Melt butter in ovenproof skillet on medium heat. Add peppers: cook and stir about 5 min, until crisp-tender. Stir in egg mixture, onions, and meat; cover. Cook on medium low 8-9 minutes, until center is almost set.

Heat broiler. Uncover frittata; sprinkle wiht cheddar. Broil, 6" from heat, 2-3 minutes or until center is set and cheese is melted. Drizzle with reserved cooking creme.

***This is a good clean-out-the-fridge recipe. You can add in cooked pasta, cooked veggies, almost any meat, and almost any cheese. Be creative.

We love this stuff. The frittata is always a hit at our house. I've also used it pretty much anywhere that calls for cooked cheese - quesadillas, pastas with alfredo sauce, etc. - and the kids even like it on bagels because it's smoother than regular cream cheese.
