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!
