Monday Menu Plan

Cranberry Orange Bread
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Confession time, we went out to eat on Saturday, so this got pushed into this week.

BLT Pasta Salad with Avocado Slices and Oranges
This is pasta with tomatoes, bacon and avocado with ranch dressing.

Tomato Soup with Green Salad

Pear Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad 
This is one of those meals I tried and thought the kids and sailor are probably not going to like this, I had a back up dinner planned and everything. I was wrong, they loved it. It is sliced pears, walnuts blue cheese and craisins with mixed leaf lettuce. Dressing is equal parts apple cider vinegar, honey and olive oil.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Casserole
New Recipe

Chili and Cornbread

Clam Chowder
We are New England Clam Chowder fans.

*Bonus Recipe*
We needed to use up some oranges around here so my daughters made Cranberry Orange Bread. It was delicious, they are becoming great recipe readers and bakers. A note for the bread, we used craisins instead of fresh or frozen, because that is what we had.
