Menu Planning Monday

31TQMEX2X5L._SL500_AA300_ Now that we are pretty much settled in our new home, I figure I need to get into my regular routine of planning our weekly meals.  Awhile back when some friends and I were talking about cooking, they asked if I would be willing to share our menu each week.  I actually really enjoy the menu planning part as I get to peruse recipes and usually pick something new to try. So, I will try to post our menu each week on here.

For me, I don't like a strict schedule of meals so each week I plan 5-6 dinners and some breakfasts to cook and simply put the list on the fridge.  This number of meals works for us since we usually eat at the church once a week and eat out once a week.  Then, we typically eat leftovers or sandwiches for lunch so I don't plan those.

For this week, the meals are primarily old favorites with a friend's yummy pasta recipe thrown in.  Here you go,

  • Canjun Chicken Pasta, Spinach Salad, French Bread 

  • Mini Meatloaves, Roasted Potatoes, Smothered Green Beans

  • Homemade Pizza (Thai for us & Pepperoni for the boys) & Thai Cucumber Salad

  • Baked Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti & Marinara, Zucchini Cakes, Green Salad

  • Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Dill Carrots, Dinner Rolls

Have fun cooking this week! :)
