Menu Plan Monday

Brie was on sale last week when I went shopping .... I "heart" brie... Brie on ciabatta bread... ummmmm..... imagine Homer Simpson drool face. I hate spending $3-5 on a loaf so I was determined to make my own with this recipe.

I also made a batch of these lemon blueberry muffins that I was addicted to this past summer.
Needless to say, it was not a low carb week!

This week's menu is a little boring, but it will do...

Sunday: Spicy Tuscan soup, crusty bread

Monday: Mushroom Marsala Burgers, sweet potato fries, fruit salad , Drew's High School Registration Night.

Tuesday: Lasagna Bowls, salad, garlic breadsticks

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Greek Chicken, salad, fruit

Thursday: Scott cooks. Pizza night, salad

Friday: I am at conference for work. Scott cooks. Hot dogs, baked beans, chips, mixed vegies

Saturday: I am at conference for work. Out. Chinese?

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Chorizo and Black Bean soup, cornbread (Yummy- but I should have drained some of the grease- The cornbread recipe is amazing!)

Monday: Scott's gone, Pancakes and sausage?

Tuesday: Kung Pao Chicken Wings, Stir fry peppers and pea pods, rice, Egg rolls (very good change from my normal buffalo-style. I actually made a lo-mein with noodles and vegies-peppers, carrots, pea pods, green onions- instead of the rice)

Wednesday: Swedish Meatballs, noodles, mixed vegies

Thursday: Ham Steak, cheesy potatoes, green beans

Friday: Bean and Cheese Burritos, fruit (Easy- and, since I doubled the batch, I had leftovers for Sunday for me and the boys!)

Saturday: Steak, fingerling potatoes, salad

Menu Plan Monday

I am working on a freezer and cupboard clean-out- so not too many new recipes this week-

Sunday: My famous Beef Stew, homemade rolls

Monday: Buffalo Chicken Tacos (wraps), fruit salad, Corn on the cob (frozen this summer) (the kids preferred my old buffalo chicken sandwich recipe- this is basically it, but on a tortilla intead of a ciabatta bun)

Tuesday: BLT(Bacon, Leeks and Tomato) Mac and Cheese, Salad - the extra leeks will probably make an appearance with the hashbrowns or stuffing to use them up!

Wednesday: Scott Cooks. Breakfast for dinner, Eggs, Hashbrowns with peppers and onions, Fruit Smoothies

Friday: Pizza Night

Saturday: Ranch Chicken and Rice, fruit (Scott really liked this meal)

Menu Plan Monday

Since the Twix cookies were such a hit with Scott and the boys, I made up another batch using this recipe but subbed Heath toffee chips instead of the Twix to bring to my parents house on the 26th- I think this might be my new favorite cookie recipe! I also made this wonderful Gooey Butter cake for our New Year's Eve (and Day) Celebrations- this Minnesota girl thinks those friends to the south got it right with this idea!

Sunday: Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Kale, rolls (this bombed with Scott and the boys but I did finally use the last of my CSA squash!)

Monday: Spicy Beef Stir Fry with peppers, onions and snow peas, rice, egg rolls. (Yummy)

Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches (with homemade rolls from the freezer!), sweet potato fries, fruit salad?

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Johhny Garlic's Salmon, rice, green beans (ok- not the amazingness I was expecting)

Thursday: Scott cooks. Spaghetti, breadsticks, Salad

Friday: Scott's gone. Breakfast for Dinner.

Saturday: Garlic-Rosemary Pork Roast, Mashed potatoes, Carrots
