Menu Plan Monday

Ok - it's been awhile! For those of you who have really missed it (Hi, Jenn!), I hope to start doing a Menu Plan Monday every week again! Make sure to check out I'm an Organizing Junkie for lots more great ideas!

Monday: Easy Shepherd's Pie (brown 2lbs ground beef, cook 1-2 packages frozen mixed vegies, add 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can beef broth or beef gravy, mix it all together, throw it in a pan, top with leftover mashed potatoes, bake till bubbly and warmed through), small side salad, bread and butter for the kids

Tuesday: Grilled chicken, homemade mac&cheese (my mom said Emeril's recipe was really good, so I'm going to try something similiar), brocoli, cauiflour and carrots on the side

Wednesday: Jen's Easy Taco Salad (make a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, brown 1-2lbs ground beef and add taco seasoning, put meat, shredded cheese, and crushed taco chips over salad. Pour catalina dressing over all, or use salsa and/or sour cream as a dressing)

Thursday: BBQ Shredded Beef (I'll make this in the crockpot, and use this awesome homemade BBQ Sauce), with onion rolls, vegies & dip

Friday: BBQ Pizza (we just make small pizzas for everyone, put them on tin foil and throw them on the grill), salad

Saturday: mom&dad dinner - steak, baked potato, salad and kid dinner - chicken nuggets, french fries, celery & carrot sticks

Sunday: roast, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans & carrots, blueberry pie for dessert

Have a great week!

I'm going to try the Shepherd's Pie, sounds yummy! If you don't put too many potatoes on it would be fairly low carb (of course then, what's the point?). We like tons of malt vinegar on it, too.
