My Menu Plan for March

Most months I plan out a menu so I can buy all that I need with the exception of produce and dairy at the beginning of the month. I usually don't plan exactly what I make each day but it makes things easier if I have a few options each day and know that all things needed are in the kitchen already. We rarely eat out so it's nice to have choices for dinner. We eat a lot of Mexican style foods! This is my list for shopping purposes for the month of March and it is in no order! I also leave a few "empty" nights for leftovers! Many days the kids and I eat leftovers for lunch. I don't usually plan sides since I never know what will be in my farmers market basket each week!

Chicken Enchiladas (black beans and salsa) in the slow cooker
Bacon Ranch Chicken in the slow cooker
Chicken Tacos
Bistro Chicken
Creamy Bow Tie Pasta with chicken and broccoli
Beef Tacos
Fried Chicken Salad
Chicken Fajita's
Taco Bell - Jayden's birthday request! Silly boy!
Red Rocker Margarita Chicken Sandwiches
Hawaiian Slow cooker chicken (teriyaki and pineapple)
Cheese Burgers
Parmesan Chicken bundles with pasta
Chuck Wagon Casserole (ground beef mix topped with corn bread mix, then baked)
Low Carb Pizza (no dough, uses cream cheese)
Crescent Chicken Squares
Chicken and Potato Bake
Tuscan Style Chicken

Let me know if you want a recipe!

Holy Moly Cloth

My mom gets excited about some products and insists on sending them to me. Sometimes they end up at the back of the cabinet and I forget about them. This is what happened with a product she sent me last month called the Holy Moly cloth. It was time to wash windows and doors yesterday and I found this under the sink and decided to finally give it a try.

I was shocked at what a great job it did! Took off all the muddy dog prints off the glass door and window as well as all the grease spots that were on my kitchen window! Last night I was cleaning out dry erase books for the kids and the cloth did a great job.

What I love the most is that they are odorless and non-toxic so I feel safe letting the kids use them to clean! Plus there were no streaks!
