Menu Plan Monday


Good morning - time to talk menus!
Last week got a little out of order, but we ate everything!  The chicken noodle soup and the quiche were standouts.  I actually made the quiche without crust, and it was still very good (not to mention healthier!)

So the task for this week is to post or link to a recipe for one of my family's favorite meals.  We really enjoy Cuban Black Beans.  They are good on their own or with meat (usually I fix pork chops or pork tenderloin).  We top them with sour cream and tomatoes, and serve them with tortillas.  Delicious!

This week's menu:

Breakfasts: Store-bought cereal (big treat!), granola, hard-boiled eggs, waffles

Lunches: Leftovers, sandwiches

Snacks: Store-bought cereal (again, big treat!), popcorn, banana pudding


Monday:  Pancakes, bacon, fruit, juice

Tuesday:  Venison Stroganoff, noodles, frozen veg, bread

Wednesday:  Tacos with fixins, refried beans (make double amount of meat; freeze)

Thursday:  Chicken Pot Pie, salad (make double amount of sauce; freeze)

Friday:  Pizza, carrot sticks, fruit

Saturday:  Tuna casserole, fruit, bread

Sunday:  Leftover buffet!

For more menu planning ideas, as well as tried and true family favorite recipes, head over to OrgJunkie!  Have a wonderful week.

Menu Plan Monday

Another Monday, another meal plan!
Last week went well - the potato soup and the lemon meringue pie were the only "new" things, and they were both very good!  (My husband might say the pie was a little too good!)
This week is more or less a pantry week - trying to economize a bit.

Breakfasts: Granola, hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, waffles

Lunches: Leftovers, sandwiches

Sweets: pudding (maybe banana?), bars/cookies (need to make some for a bake sale anyways!)

Monday:  Pork Chops, canned peaches, green beans, rolls

Tuesday:  Chicken noodle soup, sandwiches, grapes

Wednesday:  Church - need to  find out what to bring

Thursday:  Cuban Beans, venison steaks, salad, tortillas

Friday:  Breakfast for Dinner - eggs, bacon, orange juice, biscuits

Saturday:  Sausages with fixins, mac and cheese, salad

Sunday:  Quiche, grapes, rolls

Menu Plan Monday

Good morning!  Last week went pretty much according to schedule, until our company arrived.  Then we just sort of took it day by day for meal planning.  It worked out well; we have some carryover meals for this week.  Unfortunately, we're now battling colds here.  Pregnancy + cold = really uncomfortable.  I know we'll be over it soon, but it's had a definite impact on menu planning this week - a menu of comforting foods.

Breakfasts: Granola (really good!), hard boiled eggs, waffles

Lunches: leftovers, sandwiches

Monday:  Spaghetti w/meat sauce, salad (or frozen veg), bread

Tuesday:  Golden Potato Soup, grilled ham & cheese, grapes

Wednesday:  Church (depending on cold status), otherwise leftovers/sandwiches

Thursday:  Roast w/veggies, bread, green beans

Friday:  Eggs, Bacon, Toast, Orange Juice

Saturday:  Pizza, salad

Sunday:  Chicken Casserole, corn, cranberry sauce, bread

Many more menus over at OrgJunkie.  Have a great week!

Menu Plan Monday

Good grief!  September?  I know time flies, but this is ridiculous!
Anyways, it's that time again - Menu Plan Monday!  We did pretty well last week - has all but the venison steaks, and forgot a few sides (oh well!).  We ended up only having company for one night, so I made a ton of pizza, and those Cinnamon Apples for dessert.  Both were big hits - the apples are a very nice topping for vanilla ice cream.  This coming week will be different again - tonight and Wednesday night will be "normal", but midweek church happenings and another family visit later this week will change it up a bit.  As always, many more delightful menus await at Laura's site, OrgJunkie - check it out!

Breakfasts:  Granola, hard-boiled eggs, waffles

Snacks: Popcorn (new air-popper!), Brownies (when company comes)

Lunches: Leftovers, sandwiches

Monday:  Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup, Grapes

Tuesday: Church (dinner provided)

Wednesday: Burgers, Fries, Carrots, Ranch dip

Thursday: Roast, Veggies, Bread, Green Beans

Friday: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce (I sub crumbled venison for the meatballs), Salad, Bread

Saturday: Chicken Casserole (I use whatever chicken I have on hand), Corn, Cranberry Sauce, Bread

Sunday: Beans on Toast, Eggs, Fruit
