It's another menu plan...
and thankfully, that's what it is - a plan - not a law... because we'd be guilty of breaking it BIG TIME last week!
Anyway, here's our plan for this week. Baseball practice begins this week, so I'll be the queen of super-fast meals.
Sunday~ Rotisserie chicken that I picked up in the grocery store, twice baked potatoes (from the freezer), caesar salad
Monday~ Pasta fagioli soup (leftovers from a couple of weeks ago that I froze)
Tuesday~ Open-faced roast beef sandwiches (made with last week's roast!)
Wednesday~ Turkey tenderloin, rice, steamed broccoli, crescent rolls
Thursday~ Meatballs in the crockpot over spaghetti
Friday~ BBQ chicken sandwiches (made with leftover rotisserie chicken) or out to eat after ball practice
Saturday~ Dad's choice on the grill!
Share your menus at Laura's!

Sunday~ my version of pasta carbonara and stuffed mushrooms (stuffed with spinach, cheese, and panko bread crumbs... they turned out yummy!)
Monday~ red beans and rice
Tuesday~ chicken tacos or quesadillas
Wednesday~ last week's roast in the crock pot
Thursday~ Teacher of the Year banquet. Pizza for ds#3 and babysitter.
Saturday~ our first ball practice of the year... burgers & dogs on the grill in honor of the season starting.

Sunday~ my sweet nephew's 2nd birthday party. My job is baked beans.
Monday~ Pasta fagioli... a great comfort soup.
Tuesday~ BBQ chicken (with barbeque sauce - not grilled), twice baked potatoes from the freezer, tossed salad (yes, I know this is more of a warm-weather meal, but it has been in the 70s here!!!)
Wednesday~ Breakfast for dinner. Always a winner in this house.
Thursday~ out to eat with the fam for my mom's birthday
Friday~ CP roast, rice and gravy, steamed broccoli (temps are supposed to drop again)
Saturday~ Happy Heart Day!!! Hubby & I will discuss the options here... I have to sing at a friend's wedding this afternoon.... we'll probably do something on the grill at home rather than fight crowds to go out.

This week, as I began to think about our menu, I was seriously not motivated. I even complained to my husband about needing to make a menu. "Why do you need a menu?" he asked. Silly boy.... because inspiration for a fabulous (or even tolerable) dinner does not strike at 5:00.
So... here's the plan.
Sunday~ Superbowl snacks. I made sausage balls purely because I love my husband (I hate sausage).
Monday~ Soup and sandwiches. Hubby has class, and it is supposed to be rainy and cold.
Tuesday~ Chicken parm in the crock pot. I've got a rehearsal at 6pm, so this will solve my menu woes.
Wednesday~ beef & gravy in the crock, along with mashed potatoes (cauliflower sneaked in) and broccoli.
Thursday~ one of our faves: Breakfast for dinner.
Friday~ TBA. I have a women's meeting I'd like to go to, and if I go, hubby & ds#3 will probably go out to eat.
Saturday~ another rehearsal - I think I'll pick up pizza on my way home.
