Menu Plan Monday, first edition!

Yep, I'm finally trying to get into menu planning! I'm starting off simple, and just doing a plan for dinner, since that seems to be our most hectic meal of the day. Breakfast is always something quick like cereal, and lunch, Julian eats at school, and Brian and I usually bring leftovers. So here it is, my first menu plan:

Monday - "if you can catch it, you can eat it" (tonight I'm going to work on preparing some stuff ahead - meant to do it this weekend, but it didn't happen, so dinner tonight is something quick and easy)

Tuesday - Smoked sausage with peppers and onions served over rice

Wednesday - sandwiches/snacks (Brian has choir practice, and he leaves for it not too long after I get in from work and gets back late enough that we don't want to wait until then for dinner, so sandwiches/snacks it is)

Thursday - Spaghetti squash with meat sauce; salad; ciabatta bread

Friday - It's payday, we're eating dinner out!

Saturday - Curried pork with rice

Sunday - Fun with leftovers!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm enjoying traipsing through and seeing other's menus. You asked for the recipe for the mini-potpies. I haven't actually tried it yet. If it goes as good as it sounds, I will definitely post next week on Monday. :) It's from a book called Fix, Freeze, Feast. So far every recipe I've made from it has been great!

Glad to see you are doing the menu planning thing. We eat so much healthier and have extras in the freezer since I started doing this.

Yum! What time should I get there? :-) If only we were in the same state!

We usually enjoy eating on on paydays too. Or we order in chinese or pizza and have a family movie night, always a treat!

How are you doing?

I hope you'll have a chance to stop by my blog and read about the amazing provisions the Lord has given us this week!
