Monday-Swiss Chicken Casserole- 6 points, green beans, mashed potatoes
Tuesday- Fat Free Hot Dogs on wheat buns-3 points; Baked Doritos-2 points, corn

Bubble Up Enchilada Casserole
1 pound lean ground beef
1 can enchilada sauce
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small can sliced black olives
1 can reduced fat refrigerator biscuits
Fat Free Cheddar Cheese, shredded (I plan to use the WW Mexican Shredded Cheese)
Brown ground beef, drain. Mix in a can of enchilada sauce and a small can of tomato sauce. Then add a small can of sliced black olives. Cut up the refrigerated biscuits and stir them in. Then you just dump it all in a greased casserole and bake until the biscuits are brown. Bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake an additional 10 minutes or until biscuits are done. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

2 T. prepared mustard 1
medium sized onion, chopped
2 cans (14 oz. each) kidney or red beans
2 c. low-sodium tomato juice
½ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
1 t. chili powder
Brown ground beef and onion in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and mustard. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover. Cook on HIGH 2-3 hours. If possible, stir several times during cooking.
Peanut Butter Better Than Sex Cake

18 1/4 oz chocolate cake mix - devil's food, 1 box
10 oz. Diet Coke
1 egg white
7 oz. FF sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons low fat peanut butter
8 oz. (1 tub) Cool Whip Free, thawed

Combine cake mix, diet cola, and egg white. Bake according to cake mix instructions in a floured 9x13 pan. A few minutes before the cake is to be done combine sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in sauce pan. Cook and stir on low to make creamy and warm. When cake is done and still hot, poke holes in top of cake with knife and pour peanut butter mixture over top of cake. You may have to spread the mixture a little to help it go down into the holes. Sprinkle top with half of chopped Butterfingers. Cool cake completely. Cover with Cool Whip and sprinkle remaining Butterfingers over top. Keep in fridge until ready to serve.

I have bookamrked that recipe for the cake - it sounds amazing!

I also have a kids activity pack giveaway in conjunction with my menu plan this week.

Oh, boy, that menu sounds good. I make something similar to the bubble enchilada dish, but it's called bubble pizza. You cut the biscuits in 1/4's, then in a pan you brown your meat and add pizza sauce. Spread over the biscuits and top with mozzerella cheese. Oh, is it good. I like it a little under cooked so the biscuits aren't too dry.
