Menu Plan Monday

This week is crazy busy at work and home. Here is what my plan is for this week:

Monday – Taco Soup
Tuesday – Mexicali Chicken and Brown Rice
Wednesday – eat at church
Thursday – Holiday party (making Broccoli Salad to take to pot luck meal)
Broccoli Salad
I take two big bunches of fresh broccoli and cut off the flowerets and chop some of the tender stems.
I add ½ of a red onion chopped to equal about a ¼ cup
4 celery stalks chopped
Craisins (I add at least a half cup or more, really depends on my mood)
Sunflower Seeds – dry roasted variety. I add at least a ½ cup but only right before serving
4 slices of crisp bacon but I use a jar of the Hormel Real bacon bits.

Dressing for Salad
Low fat Mayo – ¾ cup
Red Wine Vinegar, 3T
Sugar Substitute like Stevia (the original recipe calls for the 1/3 sugar) but we only use a tiny bit of Stevia (2 tablespoon) to give it a little flavor.
Mix all together and pour over salad and mix well
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Add sunflower seeds and serve. It is crunchy, sweet, tart, and very good!!

Friday – Family Pizza Night
Saturday – Holiday Party
Sunday – Roast Chicken and the fixin’s
