Ugh. I am back in packing mode. Again. We have to move by the end of next month. I hate packing, really I loathe it. And trying to find time to do it amongst the other millions of things I have going on is, well, stressful. So, I am working on keeping my meals as simple as possible right now so it’s one less thing to worry about. Here’s this week’s menu.

Monday: Spaghetti

Tuesday: Chicken and Corn tostadas

Wednesday: Ham and Potato casserole

Thursday: Chicken and Broccoli casserole

Friday: Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers

Thanks for stopping by for Menu Plan Monday! Have a great week.

Chicken and Corn Tostadas


When it’s just the boys and I at home I love quick and easy meals. These chicken and corn tostadas are delicious and so simple to make!

Tostada shells
Shredded chicken (use a rotisserie chicken from the deli or make your own)
1/2 cup salsa
1 can corn, drained
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 cans refried beans
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. Adobo seasoning
Shredded Cotija cheese


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Warm the refried beans in a pot.
3. Mix the corn, salsa, lime juice, salt, and 3 tbsp cheese in a small bowl.
4. Spread the warmed refried beans on the tostadas.
5. Top with the corn mixture.
6. Mix the shredded chicken with the Adobo seasoning and add to the tostadas.
7. Sprinkle with more Cotija cheese.
8. Bake in oven about 10 minutes.

That’s it! Seriously, you can make these in about 10 minutes! Enjoy!

Menu Plan Monday 3\13\17



How is March treating you? So far the weather around here has been pretty good, but it seems we are due for some storms today and then a cool down. Hopefully it’s the last one of the year! Also, did you remember to set your clocks back this weekend? I did, but man, Sunday got away from me fast! I got busy doing stuff and before I knew it, it was 9PM. Good thing my kids had already helped themselves to the leftovers in the fridge! I definitely need to work on keeping an eye on the clock this week. Here’s our menu for the week:

Monday: Tuscan Steak with Tomatoes

Tuesday: Sofrito Chicken

Wednesday: Chicken Chile Enchiladas (recipe to come)

Thursday: Spaghetti

Friday: Spanish Rice
