Menu Plan Monday: Sept 7-13

About last week: Skeeter had to go out of town on business Wednesday through Friday, so things got a bit muddled. I ended up taking the urchins out for Chinese Wednesday night. I made Wednesday's pork loin on Thursday night instead (and it was fab). We were gone all day on Saturday, so the Saturday plan was scrapped as well, and we had leftovers out of the fridge plus fresh fruit.

This week I'm recycling the one of the two meals we didn't have last week. Also, I'm doing a pantry challenge, so no major shopping. I haven't had time for grocery shopping this weekend (thus, the pantry challenge), but once I do make it to the store, I will only need to buy the fresh vegetables for Wednesday's spinach salad and crudite platter. The leftovers will be remade into the pasta salad, bruschetta, and veggie stir fry later in the week.

And on to the menu:

Sunday: Fish sticks, french fries, garlic bread, fruit

(Yes, I am ashamed to admit it, but I really did make fish sticks for dinner. This weekend was a whole lotta busy, and I'm all about keepin' it real, yo.)

Monday: Quiche, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, fruit

Tuesday: Eating out

Wednesday: Chicken cacciatore in black olive and tomato sauce, garlic pasta, spinach salad, crudite platter

Thursday: Pasta salad, bruschetta

Friday: Pizza

Saturday: Beef enchiladas, Mexican rice, veggie stir fry

The cacciatore sounds delicious.

I'm so glad you're keepin' it real, yo. LOL You crack me up. Hey, if it makes you feel better, last night I made chicken fingers -- like, as in, already breaded, from a bag.

They were yum, though...especially with the knock-off Chick-fil-A Honey Roasted BBQ sauce I made. Mmmmm.

I'd love to know how you make your bruschetta.

First: I took the kids out for Chinese last week too and ended up spending over $26 on JUST THE BUFFET. We drank water, and we spend $26. Insane.

Second: I would like to know how you make your bruschetta.

Third: Did you just say "yo" to me? Word up, sistah.

Great menu! We do breakfast for dinner once a week. It is easy and cheap usually. :D

Have a great week and happy MPM!
