Monday Menu makes putting meals together for your family easy! Every week, I share 2 family meal ideas by putting together easy main dish and side dish recipes for you. It’s all about taking the guess work out of meal planning!
There are few things that can beat a warm bowl of classic tomato soup! This week, serve it up with hot & cheesy Green Chile Chicken Stuffed Cheese Bread instead of the expected grilled cheese sandwich. Round out the meal with an easy green salad for dinner perfection!
For real fall flavor, how about Lousiana Dirty Rice Stuffed Bell Peppers, Parmesan Brussel Sprouts and Fluffy Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Oh yeah, the colors in the meal are so inviting, and the savory, comfort flavors are spot on for enjoying the season!

This Menu’s Secret To Success
This week’s menu’s super power is its mix and match ability! Leftovers don’t have to be boring, and they don’t have to hit the table with same ol’ look as the first time you served them. Keep things fresh by swapping out dishes.
Serve Dirty Rice Peppers with leftover tomato soup instead of its original side dishes. Heat up a little breakfast casserole and plate it with a little green salad (and tomato soup) for a fun breakfast for dinner option.
Dessert This Week
I love making and serving Cherry Coca-Cola Jello Salad! But not as much as The Engineer loves eating it! And I know you and your family are going to feel the same way too. This crazy, sparkling fruit salad has the delightfully intense flavors of a cherry coke float. Punctuated with juicy, tart cherries, bright pineapple, crunchy pecans and light flakes of sweetened coconut with a pop of fizzy Coca-Cola & a cream cheese whipped topping, jiggly jello has never been so fun… or delicious!
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
Fall temps are here, and could there be a better toasty snack to fill the house with yuumy aromas? Crank up the snack vibes with these easy Roasted Peanuts in the shell. The perfect nostalgic snack for ballgames, movie nights, bonfires and parties with warm, intense peanut flavor.
Making Breakfast Easy
Breakfast all week is a snap with this simple Overnight Sausage Breakfast Casserole with Croutons. Just slice and heat for a hot sausage & egg breakfast every day! Getting fueled in the morning is so easy when you prep a breakfast casserole for the week.
