Menu Plan Monday

I'm very excited about this week's menu. I can't wait for Wednesday's sesame chicken. I've searched several Chinese restaurants here and nobody makes it. So, I am trying it myself. I'm going home in October for a few weeks and will have some family recipes up. (can't make them here cause I can't find the ingredients) I can't wait for that either!! Thanks to Laura for organizing Menu Plan Monday. Check out other great recipes here.

Just saw your comment about PB Chicken. Hope you like. Depending on what kind of cook you are, I tend to ignore the measurements and just dump a lot more of everything into the bowl. If you like to measure, it will still taste great, but I'm the kind of cook that sort of eyeballs it, and I think it comes out every more delicious with more PB and more of everything else for the sauce. ;)

God bless,

Sounds yummy! I love homemade guacamole sauce. I use Rotel tomatoes & chilies in mine. Gives it just a bit of kick without being too spicy for the kids. Have a great week!!

That is one dish we love here, the Sesame Chicken. The Chinese Restaurant knows us by name here. Do you have PF Changs your way?

Enjoyed your menu plan,
