Menu Plan Monday

Monday ~ Meat Loaf
Tuesday Crock pot pot roast
Wed ~ Sweet and sour chicken
Thur ~ Chicken Noodle soup (Didn't make it last week)
Fri ~ Taco Rice Dinner...I found this recipe from a fellow MPM on Org junkie...I plan on making a double batch, one for Friday, and one to have on another day, I hadn't even thought about freezer meals what a great alternative to crock potting every Tuesday and Thursday!

2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
3 cups Chicken broth
8 oz. Tomato sauce
1 pkg. Taco seasoning mix
1-1/2 Brown rice, uncooked
1/2 cup Red or Green Pepper
1 can of corn

Assembly Directions:
Mix everything in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until rice is done (about 40-50 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Freezing Directions:
Allow rice mixture to cool. Place in appropriate sized containers. Seal, label and freeze.
Serving Directions:
Thaw in the refrigerator. Reheat in microwave until warm. You can also reheat it in a saucepan if you add a little bit of water before heating.
