Menu Plan Monday 4/12/10

Last week I found myself wandering aimlessly through the kitchen, dazed, and searching through cabinets wondering what we were going to have for supper.  I couldn’t figure out what was wrong and then I realized that I forgot to write out my weekly meal plan.  My, my, my, things certainly go smoother with a plan.

Sunday:  meat loaf, mashed potatoes, fried okra
The meat loaf was premixed and put into the freezer during one of my freezer cooking days in March. The okra was purchased buy 1 get 1 free at Harris Teeter a few weeks ago.

Monday: breakfast casserole, fresh fruit
I made some breakfast for the youth at church on Sunday and had quite a bit of grits left over. I was thinking I could use them in a breakfast casserole. It turned out pretty well. The kids really liked it. I’ll try to share the recipe this week.

Tuesday: grilled chicken salads
It’s hubby’s turn to provide lunch for the staff at his work. Usually there are leftovers and I can make a side item so that we have enough for our family.

Wednesday: Indian food for hubby and me, leftover for the kids
The kids don’t like Indian food. Every now and then hubby and I will make a special treat for ourselves and the kids enjoy their leftovers or kid friendly foods.

Thursday: pizza (birthday boy’s request)

Friday: taquitos, homemade mexican rice, black beans
I confess that these are the premade ones by Deli Mex. They’re not as good as homemade, but these were on sale at Harris Teeter. I think they were buy 1 get 2 free!

Saturday: eating out

What will you be cooking this week?
