Menu Plan Monday 11-15-08

It has been a LONG TIME since my last menu plan post! Life suddenly got crazy and planning ahead (for nearly anything) went right out the window. However, I'm back! I remember how great it was to have a plan, instead of coming home and asking Husband "what should we have for dinner?" for him to say, "I don't know, what do you want"...

Plus, it really does help me use what I have, and plan ahead for grocery shopping, instead of just randomly grabbing stuff in the store and hope it works out.

Monday - -
Yummy Potato Soup

Yummy Potato Soup
6 potato, 5 celery stalks, 2 carrots, 5 bacon strips (sometimes we substitute ham bits), 1/2 onion, 1 tsp salt, 4 oz sour cream

Peal and dice potato. Place in pot with just enough water to cover. Add celery, carrots, and salt. Cook until tender. Add bacon and onion and stir in sour cream.

Tuesday - - Potato-Veggie Frittata

Wednesday - - Chicken Veggie Stir fry (Brown extra chicken breasts for wraps for Thursday work lunches)

Thursday - - Hamb/Rice Casserole

Friday - - Spaghetti and meatballs

Saturday - - Lime Jello with pineapple... Edit... HAHA! For those of you that have expressed concern, we are not just eating fruit and jello... :) I totally forgot to list another main dish (but remembered I had jello and pineapple to use up, thus listed it as a side)

Sunday - - Pancakes and sausage
