food for the new year

It has been a while since I have had time to post my menu, but a new year is upon us, and after 2.5 weeks off from work/school, tomorrow finds all our down time coming to a screeching halt! Back to the schedules and demand of normal life....sigh... it was fun while it lasted though!

Our menu is going to consist of some new recipes this week. Kerry gave me a new crock-pot cookbook for Christmas and I have also subscribed to a magazine I love and usually find myself buying from the newsstand: Simple & Delicious by the Taste of Home folks.

I have links for just about all of the recipes--I think the chili one is the only one I haven't put up yet.

Chicken Tortilla Soup, Cheese Quesadillas

Cincinnati Chili, Bacon muffins, Salad


Chicken and Rice, Blueberry Muffins, Green Beans


Cheers and Happy Eating for 2009 everyone!
Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Laura each week. Check out her site for lots more yummy recipes.

Your menu looks delicious (as always) :)!
I haven't made chicken and rice in a long time... that sounds good right now.

I bet it was a good night for soup! I love soup anytime, even better with quesadillas!

Yum, that all sounds so good! I have been wanting to try a chicken tortilla soup. Yours sounds good, but to be honest, I have never heard of one with black olives!

Can't wait to hear what you think of your new cookbook and mag subscription. I get the regular Taste of Home but I'm woefully behind on reading them and gleaning recipes :)

Have a wonderful week!
