Meal Plan and a Recipe!

I am selling a ton of Josie's old stuff at a huge consignment sale this week. I had every intention of having everything organized and tagged last week, but that didn't happen.
We have something going on every night this week.
Sunday night we're going to look at a building Andrew wants to use for ministry, Monday I am babysitting all day, Tuesday night I have to drop everything off at the sale, Wednesday I am babysitting and then we have our Small Group at church, Thursday night I get to shop the sale(!!!), Friday I work at the sale, and Saturday we're going to try to get everyone together for a cookout at our house.
So needless to say, this week is going to be a little insane!
Here is what I will be attempting to fit into my day for dinner.

But I'm not promising that one (or four) of these days won't be replaced by good ole' Waffle House. (If my husband cooks it, it's just like eating at home right?!?!)

Sunday - Silver Turtles (meat and veggies cooked in foil on the grill)
Monday - Darlene's Home Cooking!
Tuesday - Lasagna, Broccoli, and Salad
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas
Thursday - Mac and Cheese (Babysitter)
Friday - Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Baked Potatoes
Saturday - Cookout!


Chicken Broccoli Braid Recipe

And if any of you are looking for something new to try, this recipe is a staple in our house.
I started making it about four years ago and Andrew and I have literally fought over the leftovers!
I once caught him up at about 3 AM eating the piece that was put aside for my lunch that day!
It's pretty easy and you get a good serving of veggies and protein.
It is a Pampered Chef recipe, but I never use the actual recipe anymore. This is how I do it...

2 rolls of Crescent Rolls **(use the Pillsbury, they do taste different!)
1 Big Crown of Broccoli
1/2 a Red Pepper
1 Tsp Dill
2 Chicken Breasts (cooked and Chopped)
1/2 Cup Mayo
1 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

**if you don't want to have to seal the seams of the Crescent Rolls, Pillsbury just started making sheets of the stuff. I think they are called Recipe Creations or something like that.
*** You can't use too much chicken, broccoli, red pepper or cheese. The more the merrier! You can however use too much dill, so don't go all willy nilly with that!

Mix your cut up broccoli, red peppers, shredded cheese, mayo, chicken, and dill in a big bowl. Then roll out your 2 packages of Crescent Rolls to make one big sheet with no seams. Scoop all the mixture down the middle of the sheet.

Then take a knife and cut the edges on each side into one inch (or so) strips. Then just pull them up to make a braid looking thing on the top. When we have people over I take time and try to make this part all pretty. When it's just us, I just flop them every which way just to hold the mixture in place.

Throw it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 28 minutes. Sometimes it takes a little longer to make the Crescent Roll undoughy.

Then enjoy! And hide the leftovers from your husband!

That totally sounds like something my husband would pull! We will have to try it out!

That recipe sounds great! I think I will try it next week. But I wonder what it would taste like without mayo? Mayo to me is like cottage cheese to some people....I'm not a fan of the consistency and it's a mind over matter thing.

Your weeks sounds so busy and that dish looks really good. I love chicken enchiladas, so one day maybe you could share your recipe with me.
