Menu Plan Monday: Family Favorites Edition

Here's the plan for this week, including some family favorites:
Monday: *Family Favorite* - Spaghetti
(I know everyone knows how to make spaghetti, but thought I'd mention that I make ours with whole wheat spaghetti, ground turkey, some diced yellow onions, and Ragu sauce. I also sprinkle in some Italian Seasoning.)
Tuesday: *Family Favorite* - Garlic Lime Chicken
Wednesday: Chicken Quesadillas
Thursday: leftovers
Friday: Hamburgers & Hotdogs, etc (we are hosting a going-away bonfire/bbq gathering for a co-worker of Joe's)
Saturday: Pizza/family night (we usually have pizza/family night on Fridays, but since we have the bbq this Friday, I'm moving this to Sat. this week)
Sunday: *Family Favorite* - Oven "Fried" Chicken
I don't have an official recipe for this, but here's what I do:
Use rolling pin to crush a long package of saltine crackers in a gallon-sized ziplock bag.
Add 1 or 2 packets (depending on your preference/taste) of dry Italian Dressing mix to crushed crackers and shake bag to mix.
Then I have a dish of egg/milk mixture that I roll each chicken leg in to coat, and then put a couple legs in the ziplock bag at a time, shake it up until cracker/seasoning mix is covering the chicken legs. Put all chicken legs on a cookie sheet and bake in oven until chicken is no longer pink.

YUM!! I am totally going to try your oven fried chicken!

I like to use whole wheat spaghetti too - but I have to sneak it on my hubby. He seems to be against anything healthy! LOL
