Menu Plan Monday

It has been forever since I’ve participated in Menu Plan Monday although I have been doing a better job (most weeks) of meal planning. (My friend Hillary from My Scraps inspires me.) This is hosted by one of my favorite blogs, I’m an Organizing Junkie (I hear you laughing from across the state, Mom.) You can link up there, too.

I confess, I have a little bit of a love-hate relationship with meal planning. Love how much more organized I feel during the week and how it helps me save some money at the grocery store, but I don’t love how long it seems to take.

Maybe by participating more in MPM I’ll conquer that for once and for all!

Monday:
Vegetarian Quesadillas from The Picky Eater
We like veggie quesadillas and this will be a new recipe for us to try. 

Tuesday:
Soup, Sandwich, and Salad Night
Not sure what kind of soup yet. Sandwiches will be wraps, as tortillas were on sale at the grocery store this weekend. (UPDATE: This wound up being Mushroom Barley Soup.)

Wednesday:
No Cream Pasta Primavera 
This depends on the amount of veggies leftover from the night before. I wanted to have something spring-like since we’re having a week with temperatures hitting 75. In Pittsburgh! In October!

Thursday:
Breakfast for dinner/some kind of breakfast casserole
Eggs were on sale this week. We have 5 dozen of them! 

Friday:
Pizza Night
As per usual. 

What’s on the menu at your house this week?

Menu Plan Monday: September 5-10

Every week I tell myself that I’m going to start participating in Menu Plan Monday, hosted by Laura at I’m An Organizing Junkie.   (One of my favorite blogs, BTW.)  Truth be told, I’ve been meal-planning for awhile … but what usually happens is that I am only inspired up until, say, Tuesdays, and then I’m standing in front of the fridge the other days of the week wondering what, exactly, we’re having for dinner.

Or I lose the plan (which is written on my grocery list) and forget what I’d planned.  Or, worse of all, I go to the store without a plan and completely overspend.

So, hopefully writing down my meal plan for the week will help me with all the above, especially since the kids go back to school this week and I will (after being unemployed for four months) be returning to work full-time.

Today is cloudy and chilly, and tomorrow looks like it is going to be the same.  Hence, the soups on the menu.

Monday:  Tortilla Soup and Golden Sweet Cornbread. (with chicken for the kids)

Tuesday:  Broccoli Cheese Soup, Panera Style with Fish and Baked Potatoes (broccoli was on sale for .99 per head at our grocery store this week)

Wednesday:  Stir Fry with Broccoli, Mushrooms, and Peas  (with chicken for the kids)

Thursday: Tortillas (filling will be Spanish Rice and Beans in the Crockpot)

Friday: Baked Rigatoni.

Saturday: Depends on what we’re doing this afternoon. (There might be an amusement park outing involved – the husband scored four free tickets to Kennywood that need to be used by 9/18! – but Betty and Boo don’t exactly know this yet.)

What’s on your menu for this week?
