Menu Plan Monday
While perusing one of my new favorite websites, Tammy's Recipes, last week I discovered "Menu Plan Mondays". Basically, a website called I'm an Organizing Junkie (love that blog title! :-) gets a group of bloggers together, everyone posts their menus and links back to the original site, where a list of links are kept. What a boon! I'm always looking for ideas, especially about meals and menus, so this was just a great find. I have discovered, as you will see from several of my recent posts, that staying organized and having a clear plan is the key to my happiness as a homeschool mom. One of the ways I do this is to have a menu plan each week (I even keep it in my new Kitchen Binder!), so I thought that I could participate in Menu Plan Monday myself. Horray, what fun! So, without further ado, here is this weeks' menu:
Monday: Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken, brown rice, mixed frozen vegies, salad
Tuesday: Country Steak and gravy, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, bread and butter (for my wierd children who don't like mashed potatoes!)
Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup (use leftovers from Monday), cracker bread (yum!!), salad
Thursday: BBQ beef sandwhiches(I'll use the crockpot for this), soft onion rolls, plain sandwhich rolls and chips for the kids, coleslaw (I'm still on the search for the perfect coleslaw recipe, thought I'd try this one this week), birthday cake for my youngest!!!
Friday: Tuna Noodle Casserole (I'll make it with canned tuna, homemade cream of mushroom soup, frozen peas, and egg noodles, with a parmesan/cracker crumb curst on top), salad
Saturday: Fried Pork chops, spiced potatoes (family recipe, I'll post it someday!), green beans
Sunday: Roast beef, yellow rice, mixed frozen vegies, Apple Crisp and ice cream for dessert
Many thanks to Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie for organizing this great collection! Do check out the other blogs listed there on Menu Plan Monday - you'll find some great ideas!
