Don’t forget to check out TONS of other menus!!!

I am so excited to be getting back into Menu Planning. It is truly amazing how accomplishing it make me feel. I take pride in it, and I get mad when I don’t follow it (that part I should work on.)

I am happy to say that the following menu was actually written last Thursday, it is mainly pantry cooking because money is tight but I am excited about it.

Monday  Roast-done in the crock pot- with onions, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower

Tuesday  Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

Wednesday Chili-in crock pot also

Thursday Blackened tilapia- with rice and broccoli

Friday Mexican Pasta Skillet

Saturday Grilled sandwiches with a pasta side (this might change)

Sunday Leftovers, if there is any! 🙂 

Menu Plan Monday- Aug 3- Aug 9

Last weeks menu was a hit, there wasn’t one dish we didn’t enjoy! We really liked the enchilada casserole and I was surprised with how easy it is to make. The 40 clove garlic chicken was the best chicken I have ever tasted!!! All in all it was a good week and I have some left overs for next week!

Here is my menu for the week of Aug 3- Aug 9…. I am trying to keep my grocery bill less than $50 this week so we will see what happens!! I will post the recipes tomorrow, I have a horrible head ache and I am going to get some rest! I have also decided that one meal a week will have no meat in it!!


Monday: Pork Steaks on the Grill with grilled corn and cheese

Tuesday: Indian Tacos

Wednesday: Garlic Potato Soup (meat less)

Thursday: Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

Friday: Chicken Dumpling Soup

Saturday: Stuffed Peppers

Sunday: Leftovers
Menu Plan Monday is hosted by Laura but this week it will be hosted by The Happy House Wife…check out both sites for many more menu planning ideas!!

Menu Plan Monday Week of July 27-Aug 2

I am posting my menu this week a day early for many reasons. One, I want to get all of my recipes posted for these meals right away, and then just come back and add photos later. Two because I am going to be very busy tomorrow! My wonderful husband is going to be taking out daughter of the house all day long so that I can clean out my studio FINALLY!!! I cant wait to do this, but it is going to be an all day task! There will be before and after photos don’t worry!

So here is the menu for this week July 27-Aug 2

Monday: Crock Pot Pork Tenderloins (new recipe, using up the last of the pork)

Tuesday: Tater Tot Hot-dish (one of the dishes I am known for)

Wednesday: BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Thursday: Stroganoff

Friday: 40 Clove Garlic Chicken (I always hear about this but have yet to try it)

Saturday: Enchilada Casserole (I saw this at and really wanted to try it!)

Sunday: Leftover Sunday’s

Have a great week and enjoy you dinner! Don’t forget to check out who hosts MENU PLAN MONDAY!


Menu Plan Monday

Alright, here goes my menu for the week of July 20- July 26. This is my first time linking to the MENU PLAN MONDAY site!! I will be posting my recipes tomorrow and pictures as I make them!!!! Don’t forget to check out my RECIPE CONTEST, we have only had one official entry so the odds are in her favor!!!!


Monday: Cheeseburger Macaroni (new recipe)

Tuesday: Breakfast for dinner (we don’t do this often but its my birthday and my husband makes it when we do have it!)

Wednesday: Pork Chop Casserole (new recipe)

Thursday: Pot Roast (new recipe)

Friday: Mexican Pasta Skillet (TO DIE FOR)

Saturday: Baked Drumsticks with potatoes (new recipe)

Sunday: Leftover Sunday (time to clean out that fridge)

We will see how good I do at sticking to my menu this week! Its funny because every time I make a dish that normally gives lots of left overs, we have unexpected company for dinner and end up with no leftovers! I hope that doesn’t happen this week!!!

Once again check out my RECIPE CONTEST and spread the word!!!!

Menu Plan Friday???

So the rules of menu plan Monday are simple, you post your menu on Monday, (they get more detailed than that but that’s the gist.) Well Monday is coming up and before I post next weeks menu I want to post this one so I can try and get the hang of what I want to do and see how hard the task is going be.

So here goes nothing!

Menu for the week of Monday July 13 through Sunday July 19

Monday: Chili

Tuesday: Chili Mac (great way to create extra leftovers)

Wednesday: Pork Tenderloin with dirty rice and corn

Thursday: Open face tuna sandwiches with fruit salad

Friday: Chicken Rigatoni with home made alfredo sauce

Saturday: Leftovers (in hopes to clean out the fridge)

Sunday: Nephews birthday party

So normally I do pretty good sticking to my meal plan. Thursday we did go out to eat, but it was spur of the moment, so we ended up having the sandwiches today for lunch. We usually have left overs Sunday to clean out the fridge before I go grocery shopping Monday morning but since we are going to be out of town we are doing it tomorrow instead!

My goal is to now type in the recipes for my meals and turn the names of them into links, it might take me a while to get the hang of it, but thats the whole point of my this post. In the future I will probably wait to post the recipes until after I have made it at least once so I can right my notes about the meal.
