Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Greek Chicken Thighs with Roasted Vegetables, Salad, rolls (I was inspired by this recipe)

Monday: Scott's r/s man-date night. Hashbrowns with leftover shredded beef, onions and peppers, eggs and toast

Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Soup and rolls - Instead of egg noodles that I normally use when I make soup, I decided to go the dumpling route after seeing this recipe. I don't remember ever eating a dumpling growing up (Scott did), so I never know if I am making them right because I have no idea what they are supposed to taste or look like... Scott, however, said they were great... oh and I added a little onion and garlic powder to the dumpling mix too because I really don't cook anything without onion and garlic... I

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Leftover enchiladas from the freezer, chips and salsa Amazingly, this recipe made 8 enchiladas, but 4 would have filled up 2 teenage boys, the hubby and myself- maybe it's because I used part of a bag of black beans instead of the cans (more volume?)

Thursday: Scott cooks. Pizza, salad

Friday: Chicken Stir fry, rice, eggrolls

Saturday: lasagna bowls, salad and breadsticks

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Spaghetti with homemade sauce, garlic bread, salad I actually made this penne with vodka sauce recipe- Scott loved it, Drew was sick and didn't eat and Jake said he preferred my other recipe!
Monday: Scott gone. Breakfast for dinner with the boys Scott's night out was cancelled due to the snow so we were all actually here for dinner- Jake requested waffles and bacon.
Tuesday: Sausage, Peppers and Onion Pizza, salad
Wednesday: Scott cooks. Salmon, rice and green beans I used the last of my Tastefully Simple Bold and Bossy honey mustard sauce on top of it to glaze the salmon.
Thursday: Scott "cooks". Crockpot Roast and vegies, homemade rolls
Friday: Black Bean and Corn Enchiladas, chips, salsa and guacamole Pushed from last week- I love a pantry meal that can be postponed if needed. I have some leftover beef roast that I may mix in with this.
Saturday: Basketball Tourney. Scott's off work early. Out?

Menu Plan Monday

Last week's menu was kind of a messed up, but overall good, one!
I made this black forest cheesecake recipe last week as a treat.... yum!

Sunday: Pork chops, mashed potatoes, carrots
Monday: Steak, sweet potato fries, salad (breakfast is red velvet doughnuts!)
Tuesday: Garlic Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon, buttered noodles, corn on the cob (from the freezer) This was ok- I think I like my usual roast chicken better- too much liquid in this one!)
Wednesday: Scott cooks. BFD. Pancakes and sausage or Egg sandwiches
Thursday: Ham and cheesy potatoes, green beans (didn't get to last week) Woops! That package of "Ham" was actually roast beef- oh well- still worked out ok.
Friday: Black bean and corn enchiladas, rice, fruit Skipped this and made the boys buffalo chicken sandwiches.
Saturday: Out with friends- SNOW GOLF!!! kids get pizza

I also am going to be making some banana bread and probably the cookies I didn't get to last week.
