Menu Plan Monday - Comfort Food

Hi again!
   Aside from the kids being out of school today for parent/teacher conferences, it looks like this week might be getting back to 'normal'. We were able to open the windows over the weekend and get all the stuffiness out. I have been diffusing R.C. and Thieves like crazy, so we are all feeling much better than last week! I am so looking forward to more windows open weather!
Here's a little about one of my BFFs this week:

    This week's menu has a lot of comfort food in it. I don't know if it was the weather or the sickness that was affecting my planning, but either way, we have lots of yummy food planned!

Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients: Chicken, mixed veggies, cream of chicken, milk, mozzarella, pie crusts

Tortilla Soup (I have used this recipe a few times, and it is always delicious. I recently had tortilla soup with rice in it and I love it, so I might add some to this one!)

Ingredients: Chicken, chicken stock, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, avocado, limes
Shepherd's Pie - This was a request from one of the boys this week! ;)

Ingredients: Ground beef, onion, carrots, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, potatoes, stock,
parmesan cheese
Pork Chops, Yellow Rice, Green beans

Ingredients: pork chops ( I get a big pack of thick cut boneless) Yellow rice, Green beans

Ingredients: Pizza Dough (I use the Pioneer Woman's recipe) Pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni
One Pot Chili Mac & Cheese

Ingredients: Ground beef, elbow noodles, kidney beans, white kidney beans, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, garlic, onion, cheddar

* My husband is not a huge fan of beans, so I only used the red kidney beans

Chicken & Wild Rice Casserole.
I am making this 'accidental' recipe again from a few weeks ago. I will be photographing as I go this time, so I should have a full recipe post soon!! :D

Ingredients: Chicken, Wild Rice, carrots, celery, onion, chicken broth, cream of chicken

There is a LOT of chicken stock in this week's recipes! I kinda felt like I was hoarding all the stock when I went shopping yesterday!

Now I want to know what you are eating this week?!
