Menu Plan Monday 9/20 - 9/26

This is going to be a GREAT week! I've got my first Weight Watchers weigh-in. Some of my favorite TV shows come back (Dexter, anyone?). Autumn begins (although no one seems to have notified the weatherman of this. It's supposed to be 100 degrees here today and tomorrow).

Here's my plan for the week. For lots more, visit each Monday morning.

  • oatmeal -- with cinnamon & brown sugar, or apples & honey, or whatever concoction we devise
  • Bagel Thins (my new favorite breakfast item) with cream cheese or an egg
  • peanut butter & jelly on whole grain bread
  • Pot Roast with some sort of bread
  • Roasted Chicken, Wild Rice, and Steamed Vegetables, again, with bread
  • Italian Potatoes (simple recipe follows)
  • Tortilla Soup with cornbread
  • Chicken & Noodles
  • Steak Parmesan
  • Leftovers
Planned Baking:
  • granola
  • bread pudding

Italian Potatoes:

This is a simple meal that's filling and fast.

For each serving, you will need 1 baked potato, 1/2 a cup of meat sauce, and 2 Tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese.

Cut the potato in half lengthwise, almost all the way through (leaving the bottom skin intact). Slice almost all the way through the other way, 3 or 4 times. Top with the meat sauce and mozzarella. Bake at 350 (or microwave) until heated through and cheese is melted.

Have a great week! :)

Good things on the menu this week Michelle! the Italian potatoes look good, nice & easy and filling. And a family pleaser! I may have to have those for lunch one day this week :)

I love the Italian Potatoes idea! I'm always looking for more ways to jazz up baked potatoes...yum!

I can't believe all the TV that's starting up again this week - yay for Dexter! (And House and Criminal Minds and Fringe!)

We haven't had pot roast in ages - that sounds great!

Sounds like fall is off to a great start!
