Menu Plan Monday

Last week's menu worked like a charm. We had leftovers which allowed Lawman and I to have lunches and a smorgasbord on Thursday night to clean out the fridge.

We tried two new recipes last week - bubble pizza and broccoli & potato bake. Both were well liked by everyone so I'll be making them again.

Only one new recipe this week; the cheesey lentils. If it's a keeper, I'll share it later this week. I'm curious how the girls are going to react to it. Lentils are a food item that they have not been exposed to. Here's our menu this week. It's plain and simple this week. Mainly tried and true dishes.

Sunday - Broccoli Cheese Soup, Salad, Bread

Monday - Cheesy Lentils, Salad

Tuesday - Chicken Spaghetti

Wednesday - Pork Roast (crock pot), potatoes, carrots

Thursday - Pork Fried Rice, Eggrolls

Friday - to be decided; both girls have Halloween parties to go to so Lawman and I may have a date night.

I'm always impressed with people who plan out their week in advance menu. I can only plan a day or two in advance.

When I have beans we usually have mac and cheese, scalloped potatoes or just homemade bread. Also hubby enjoys fried hot dogs and onions with his baked beans. I will have to add this to my meal plan post when I decide what we will be having with it.

you plan looks tasty!

Sounds like another delicious menu plan. It is freezing here so we will definitely be making a big batch of soup over here too!
