Menu Plan Monday 3/8 to 3/14

It's that time of the week again. It's time to plan the weekly menu. If you don't already do so, I encourage you to start. Menu planning is a great way to save money in the kitchen. Knowing what meals you plan to cook with the ingredients in your house helps prevent the chaotic "What's for dinner?" moments at rush hour. It gives you a game plan on which to base your meals. It keeps you from relying on the drive-through or the pizza delivery man.

Need help coming up with an exciting menu? An easy menu? A frugal menu? Go visit some of the weekly participants of Menu Plan Monday over at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

Here's my plan for the week:

Breakfasts this week will include:


 
  • Pumpkin Pancakes
  • Scones
  • English Muffins with Egg & Cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Oat Bran Muffins

 
Lunches will be leftovers for adults and purchased lunches for kids.


Dinners:


 

Meatless Monday: Black Beans and Yellow Rice with cornbread

Tuesday: Butter Burgers and Fries

Crock Pot Wednesday: Crock Pot Pinto Beans and Crock Pot Cornbread Casserole

Thursday: Straw and Hay & garlic bread

Cookie Friday: leftovers. Cookie: thin mints

Saturday: Thanksgiving sandwiches

Southern Cookin’ Sunday: Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Cole Slaw, and Biscuits with Sweet Potato Pie

 
Planned Baking:


 
  • Wheat Sandwich Bread
  • English Muffins
  • Soft Pretzels

 See you back here daily for recipes and pictures! Happy Cooking!

Found you from orgjunkie! It's my
first week and I'm loving all of these recipes. Stop by and check mine out if you'd like. :) Can't believe it took me so long to find y'all!

Amazed that you make it all from scratch! I think I'm doing great if I don't buy a cardboard pizza for my lazy days! ;)
