Monday meal plan: Salmon, bbq chicken, French toast and more!
Posted December 3, 2012
This week on the menu, we have salmon, bbq chicken, French toast, chicken tacos and more! I've also included a recipe for some delicious and very easy cinnamon buns I made on Saturday.
What's on your menu this week?
Spaghetti and veggie meatballs
BBQ chicken breast in the slow cooker (Sanderson Farms chicken breast on sale at Lowes Foods for $1.97/lb through 12/4)
Chicken tacos with all the toppings
French toast (using the Pepperidge Farm cinnamon raisin bread that is BOGO through 12/4)
Simply Super Crescent Cinnamon Rolls
On Saturday, I made some cinnamon rolls using Pillsbury crescent dough and everyone loved them! They were super easy to make and really quite tasty. As you can see in the picture above, they look pretty tasty as well!

Basically, you just roll out 1/2 the crescent dough, top it with the sugar, butter and nuts (I used walnuts), then top it with the other half of the dough. Then cut into long strips, twist them and then coil them and then bake. The twisting part is a little messy, but it's worth it!
I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup total, cut the butter by about a tablespoon and used 1/2 cup of walnuts instead of 2/3 cup. Even with less of everything, they were still very buttery and sweet. I may cut the sugar and butter down even more the next time I make them. They are not a very healthy treat so I won't be making these every week. But they sure hit the spot on Saturday!
