Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Happy Halloween! Pizza at my nephew's birthday party before candy hunting.

Monday: Lasagna bowls, garlic bread (I added extra parm to my white sauce and saved the other half of the red sauce for a quick freezer meal)

Tuesday: Beef Pho (though I'll skip making the beef stock from scratch and use some homemade chicken stock from the freezer added to some store bought beef stock and the spices). Scott and the boys love this stuff!

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Ham and cheesy potatoes, green beans, rolls

Thursday: Scott cooks. Pork Chops, sweet potato fries, salad

Friday: Scott's gone. BFD. Puff Puff Pancakes, fruit (This is actually going to be english muffins, eggs and bacon- I made Apple Peel Jelly and it's so good with english muffins! I need another excuse to eat some!)

Saturday: Chinese Takeout to appease Superman.

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Chili

Monday: Pizza Pasta, salad (a trial run for my friend, Sara's, maternity leave- she would eat pizza every day if she could- I'm thinking this will be a good substitute for after baby #2 is born) I really liked this recipe- I added thin slices of green peppers- it really does taste like pizza!

Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Tenders, Salad, Dutch oven bread, fruit
My bread didn't rise enough- I think I need to play with the oven temp a little? The bottom was starting to burn and the inside still seemed a little doughy.

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Bacon and Egg Sandwiches, cantaloupe

Thursday: Scott cooks. Italian Sausage, Potato, and Pepper Roast, grapes. (I love a one dish meal!) Another Yum! Though it took poor Scott longer to cut up everything than he thought so we didn't eat until about 740!

Friday: Roast Chicken, mashed potatoes, carrots

Saturday: Steak Fajitas. grapes

Menu Plan Monday

No more CSA treats.... a sad sign that winter is on it's way! I also have a goal that I want to re-pot some of my herb plants into indoor pots so I don't lose them- I loved having fresh herbs all summer long! Not quite ready to give that up!

Sunday: Oven fried Chicken, Collards (My first attempt at this southern staple, with a little different but highly rated recipe), fruit salad, Spaghetti Squash (I'll coat and pan fry the chicken first and then toss in the oven to finish cooking

Monday: Puff Puff Pancake, melon

Tuesday: Flank Steak, Garlic Rosemary Potatoes, Salad

Wednesday: Scott Cooks. Crock pot ham and bean soup (from my 15 year old Betty Crocker cookbook), rolls

Thursday: Scott Cooks. Tacos, grapes

Friday: Butternut- Jalapeno Mac and Cheese, Salad, grapes (Of course, when asked if he likes it, Scott will respond, "it could have used some meat in it..." Silly anti-vegetarian man! Does it really matter if there's meat in it as long as it tastes good?)

Saturday: Nephew's birthday Party? Wedding Dress Shopping with my baby sister?

I also made the best brownie treats on Sunday and SO easy! Also check out the recipe for Nutella Rice Krispie treats that I made last week- I swear it tastes like a toostie roll!

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Steak, Baked Potato, Salad

Monday: Chorizo and Black Bean Soup (YUM! We had with corn bread muffins)

Tuesday: Roast Chicken, Maple Glazed Delicata Squash, CSA vegie

Wednesday: Scott Cooks. Hamburger, fries, vegies

Thursday: Scott Cooks. Leftovers/ Eggs and Toast

Friday: TBD - Beef stew? (I don't have a recipe that I follow, it's mostly whatever vegies I want to get rid of, stew meat that's been tossed in seasoned flour and browned, beef broth, couple beef boullion cubes, herbs/spices, S&P, and my secret ingredient- V8- I hate drinking the stuff, but it makes the best stew broth- I usually buy the low sodium cans so I can use a couple and the rest store nicely in the cupboard until the next stew day!)

Saturday: Ham, au gratin potatoes with onion and sage, green beans
