Menus of a Mom

Just trying to get the family fed!


From Publix:

Asian Chicken Quesadillas

Chicken and Black Bean Pie

Phyllo Chicken Pie

Poppy Seed Pork with Apples and Rice

Sundried Tomato Artichoke Chicken – I don’t bread the chicken, and I sometimes substitute goat cheese for the Parmesan.  I also omit the butter.  Usually, this is paired with sauteed yellow squash/zucchini, but sometimes I have it over pasta.

Taco Nacho Rice – I use ground turkey breast instead of ground beef and add mixed veggies to the pan instead of making the corn salad on the side.  Sometimes, instead of the taco rice/pasta blend, I use an all natural Mexican rice mix, but it’s more expensive and takes longer to cook, so I make this alteration time and budget permitting.

From Hungry Girl:

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Cashew Chicken

Cheeseburger Mac Attack – I don’t use the crock pot.  Instead I just microwave the cheesy veggies, boil the pasta, brown the meat and other ingredients in a skillet, and put it all together at the end.

Curried Away Chicken Salad

Devil-icious Egg White Salad

Oh-Honey-Honey Boneless BBQ Wings

Red, White, & Blueberry Trifle – I used frozen berries, thawed in the refrigerator overnight, which sort of creates a sauce.  I put the leftover berries all together and enjoy it over the leftover angel food cake with some Reddi-wip.

Southwest Chicken Chowder

Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash

From Kraft Recipes:

Easy Chicken Enchiladas – I usually substitute 0% fat Greek Yogurt and taco seasoning for the Philly Cooking Creme.  Can also be prepped in the crock-pot.

Foil-Pack Chicken & Broccoli Dinner – I used honey dijon dressing instead of ranch.

Fruit Pizza – I made it PB&J style with peanut butter cookies instead of sugar and the apricot all-fruit mixed into the cream cheese.

Layered Bruschetta Salad

Mexican Meatloaf

Mini Mexican Pizzas – I substituted Ro-Tel for the stewed tomatoes and green chilies and cut the recipe in half.

Spaghetti Squash Pie

From Awesome Blogs:

Butternut Squash Calzones

Carrot Granola

Crustless Cheddar Broccoli Quiche

Mexican Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Peanut Noodles with Edamame

Perfect Smoky Pulled Pork

Potato and Pea Frittata

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Vegan Pad Thai


Beef and Bean Taco Salad

Cheeseburger Zucchini Pie – Next time, I would add some more spices and maybe some bell peppers – this is a little bland as is.

Roasted Vegetable Ciabatta

Tuscan Vegetable Stew

Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna


Cherry Tomato & Yellow Squash Crumble

Chicken with Tomato Couscous – I use a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh.  Recently I made this substituting rice pilaf for the couscous and tomato bisque for the diced tomato.

Not Your Average Tamale Pie

Sausage Ragu over Creamy Polenta – I use pre-made Basil & Garlic polenta from the produce section.

Gorgonzola Sauce

Mini Cheeseburger Pies

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Pumpkin and Date Cookies

Vegetable Garden Muffins

Vegetable Lasagna

Zucchini Chile-Cheddar Mash

Zucchini Muffins – I cut the oil in half and substitute applesauce.  I also use all whole wheat flour, but substitute 1/4 – 1/2 cup of it with flax seed meal.
