Menu Sharing

Anybody interested in sharing menus?
I'm always trying to figure out the best way to create a menu for my family.
Looking at others' menus helps me see what I could do to make my meal planning a little easier.
Right now I am doing mine by-weekly.
I'm trying to shop for all non-perishables/freezables at the beginning of the 2 weeks, and produce each week.
Any takers?

Puff Pastry Chicken Bundles

Prep: 15 minutes Bake:20 minutes at 400 Yield : 4 servings
From: Simple and Delicious

4 chicken tenderloins ( I just buy breast & cut them smaller to fit)
1/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/2 c spinach and artichoke cream cheese spread
4 slices Muenster Cheese, halved (this is pricey stuff...I just used Swiss cheese)
1 egg
1 T water

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry into a 14-inch square. Cut into four squares. Spoon 2 T cream cheese into the center of each square; top with cheese and chicken.

Whisk the egg and water; lightly brush over edges. Bring opposite corners over each bundle; pinch seams to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; brush with remaining egg mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool for a few minutes before eating...or it will burn your mouth (we learned that the hard way). There were so pretty and so yummy. Looked so impressive. Next time I am going to experiment a little by adding ham, or removing Swiss cheese to see what is necessary. My little ones weren't too excited at first, but once they took a bite they changed their minds.

*I was looking for a picture to share since this came from a magazine I thought there might be one. NOPE what I found instead was another version that I want to make...oh man sounds yummy too.

Skillet Meaty Lasagna

Tonight we had Skillet Meaty Lasagna for dinner.
I have an inability to read directions all the way through.
It doesn't matter if they are driving directions, baking directions, craft directions...
I just have a hard time with it.
So we'll try this one again and I'll do it the right way!
It wasn't bad, it justn't wasn't as good as it could have been,
at least I don't think it was!
