Hello! A Juggling Mom has a terrific food blog and she gave one of my menu recipes a thumbs up….the Foil Pack Taco Chicken Dinner. It really is a great “dish”, it was a favorite in my house as well. Her review reminded me that I haven’t made this recipe in awhile so I’m including it in my menu this week.I received an email from a reader asking if I knew whether any of the participants in MPM specifically featured weight loss/weight watcher menus and recipes. So here is what I’d like to suggest. If your menu includes low fat recipes please let us know in brackets (low fat) beside your name in Mr. Linky. Thanks!
Here is my menu for the week:
Monday: Foil Pack Taco Chicken Dinner
Tuesday: Grilled Honey Mustard Pork Chops
Friday: Chicago Style Pan Pizza – recipe below
Chicago -Style Pan Pizza
1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
1 pound bulk Italian sausage
2 cups shredded mozzarello cheese

1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fennel seed, crushed
