Recipe Swap! and a Menu-planning freebie!

Julie from "My Journey to 5th Grade" had a wonderful idea of having teachers share and swap some of their favorite recipes. She's hosting her first-ever Linky Party, so head on over to support her and share a favorite recipe! My mouth is watering just at the thought! :)

So here's my recipe: Chicken Pockets
It's a family favorite and a crowd-favorite at get-togethers

  • 2 c. cooked chicken (chopped or shredded)
  • 4 oz. soft cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tbsp. chopped onions
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 1 c. Italian bread crumbs (optional)
  • ¼ c. Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Separate the crescent rolls and make 4 rectangles (seal the dotted lines)
  2. Mix together cream cheese, salt, pepper, milk, and onion.
  3. Stir in chopped chicken
  4. Put ½ c. mixture in each rectangle. Draw up 4 corners and pinch together.
  5. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with combination of bread crumbs. (optional)
  6. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. 


And now for a freebie! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my menu-planning sheet. It's actually my mom's original template - I just pretty-fied it :) 
It really helps keep me organized on busy school nights. I normally plan my menu on Friday nights, go grocery shopping on Saturday, and then I don't have to worry or guess what we're having on week nights.
