Menu Plan Monday


So last week i really shouldn't have even bothered with a menu plan because nothing really happened like i thought it would! We had a great spring break! The one benefit of daddy working evenings is that he was home during the day all week so we got to have lots of family fun!! This week we are back to the daily grind and back to sticking to our menu plan!!

Monday: frozen dinners*

Tuesday: Tuna Casserole

Wednesday: Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken w/ steamed rice & broccoli

Thursday: Cornbread Casserole

Friday: Potato Soup w/ crackers

Saturday: Meatloaf w/ mashed cauliflower & green beans**

Sunday: left overs/ take out

* we've had these frozen dinners in the freezer for soooo long that i decided we are just going to eat them tonight to get them out of the freezer!

** i heard of doing mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes on Biggest Loser and a girlfriend of mine tried and said its actually really good so we're gonna give it a try!

We had the crockpot brown sugar chicken a couple of weeks ago and LOVED it!! So we are having it again this week and the boys (hubby included) ;) are super excited. If you missed the recipe before you can go here to get it. And you should. You really really should try it! And don't forget to head over to orgjunkie.com to check out all the menu planning fun!

Simply scrumptious! I'm still waiting for my dinner invitation, by the way! LOL!

Sounds like a plan. We've been trying to stay on a budget. I hope when things settle down (maybe after graduation), I can start to plan better menus and just buy what I need for those meals.

I have heard the same thing about mashed cauliflower. Let us know what you think!
