Menu Plan Monday: May 31-June 6

31 May

I’m trying to do a better job with meal planning, so I’m following along with I’m An Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday. For more info on MFM, click here. I’m pretty proud of myself this week. I’ve planned out two weeks’ worth of wholesome food.

Here’s this week’s menu:

  • Monday: Memorial Day cookout @ Mom’s – burgers, potato salad, and baked beans. I’m in charge of dessert, so I’m making Berry Cobber. My dear hubby is making his famous fried ice cream. (Okay, not so wholesome today, but it’s a holiday so we’ll make an exception.)
  • Tuesday: Italian Cream Cheese Chicken Casserole
  • Wednesday: Crock Pot Ragout
  • Thursday: Chicken Chili served with Krissy’s Best Ever Corn Muffins
  • Friday: Leftovers
  • Saturday: We have a class reunion for J this evening at local fish restaurant, so we’ll be eating a light lunch. Spinach Rice Casserole and a salad.
  • Sunday: I am providing breakfast for our Sunday School class, but since I have to be there so early for choir (and since we have a worship service before our small group Bible studies) I needed something that could sit there and still be good. My sister is making something sweet, so I’m making something savory. I decided to make a crock pot Breakfast Casserole. I’m also have my mom and sister over for lunch, so I’m making J’s favorite Dorito Casserole.

I’m also making Baked Oatmeal for breakfast throughout the week. Since there are only two of us, it will last us the whole week. It’s so yummy, so we don’t mind eating it every day.

It’s also time for more homemade bread. I love this recipe from Progressive Pioneer.

We do leftovers for lunch. Again, it’s just the two of us. By cooking nearly every night we have enough for lunches throughout the week (and one night devoted to leftovers). If I’ve planned too much, we just substitute leftovers for a meal. No food goes to waste in this house!
