Menu Plan Monday - Keeping it simple this week

I don't know about you, but I'm still trying to readjust my post Thanksgiving portion sizes! So in the spirit of not gaining any more weight between now and the Christmas binge, I bought celery and carrots to snack on at work this week...and pickled beets and cottage cheese to go along with my salads at lunch. Not that I don't like all of the above, don't get me wrong - I just don't feel too bad about binging on rabbit food, if you know what I mean?

EmDee is working second shift this week, so I'll be playing solo parent in the evenings. We'll be keeping it very simple! We made chili soup and chicken stirfry on Sunday. Here's the plan for this week's dinners:

Monday: Fried chicken salads
Tuesday: Chicken stirfry over rice
Wednesday: Chili soup and peanut butter crackers
Thursday: planning to take mamaw and Sweetpea to Applebee's happy hour
Friday: breakfast for dinner

The pumpkin apple crisp and peppermint ice cream both got bumped back to this week...last week I made rice krispie treats instead - will post more about that on Thursday.

Peanut butter crackers with chili sounds interesting. I've heard that peanut butter makes hot spices more intense.
