Menu Plan Monday

It worked. Last week's menu that is. Everyday I managed to stick to what I had planned. We ate at home and not out. Which I consider to be quite an accomplishment given the fact that we had an extra activity every single evening. Ugh! I'm hoping that this week is not a repeat performance. I even managed to take my lunch to work with me each day except Wednesday which was planned.

The Beefy One-Pot Dinner was a hit and one of the easiest meals I prepared. We were at the table and ready to eat in 30 minutes. That's fast. As I was making the menu for this week I decided it's probably time to rotate stock again; using what we have on hand. Basically, clean out the pantry and freezer.

Thanks to for hosting MPM each week! Go check out the many menus posted and get some new ideas for your own if you're stuck in a rut.

Monday - Chicken Noodle Soup + Spinach Quesadillas

Tuesday - Spaghetti Carbonara, salad, bread

Wednesday - Creamy Chicken Macaroni

Thursday - Breakfast for Dinner (waffles, sausage)

Friday - Dinner Out

I'm so glad menu plan Monday is working for you. It has been such a help for me. I used to try to menu plan, but it didn't always happen. Now I know I have to do it on Monday.
Spaghetti carbonara sounds yummy. I've never made it (just eaten the frozen diet dinner kind). Is it hard?
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog.

The spaghetti carbonara is really easy and a family favorite. I'll post the recipe later this week.

Have a good one!
