Menu Planning Monday

It's been several weeks since I intentionally planned out our meals.  Unfortunately, this often resorts to grabbing a frozen pizza or hitting a drive thru.  (dislike!)   In September, I sat down and made a list of meals we enjoy and threw in a couple of new recipes for good measure.  It totaled to be about 40 different meals.  Today, I went back to the list and picked a few for this week's meals.  No-brainer meal planning right?  :)

Sunday:  Grilled burgers and oven-baked fries (hubby also grilled wings - it is football season after all).  Tip:  If you slice the potato and then let them soak in lightly salted water for a couple of minutes.  They bake nice and crisp!

Monday:  Crustless quiche and fruit

Tuesday:  Sour Cream Noodle Bake with Salad and French Bread

Wednesday:  White Chicken Lasagna with Salad

Thursday:  I'm taking a friend out for her birthday, but there should be leftovers for family.

Friday: Pizza (We've been using the jiffy box mix crust & it's pretty good!)

Saturday: Stir-Fry Chicken and Vegetables with Brown Rice

I'm going to a friend's house on Friday night to work on crafts for Christmas & it's Holiday Open House at work (aka - snack day), so I'll be making some of these marvelous cookie/brownies "brookies" too.
