Menu Plan Monday

I have been reading various menu plans for a few weeks. Today, I decided to head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie to see what it is all about.

At our house, we don't eat breakfast or lunch together during the week, so there is minimal planning that goes into those meals. For us, it all focuses around dinner on the weekdays.

Sunday - Cereal and milk
Wendy's (special treat)
Lasagna, bread

leftover Lasagna, bread

Special Event - will be tasting the fare of local restaurants

Black Bean Soup

Homemade pizza

Chicken Parmesan

PB&J/Turkey sandwiches
Dinner out at our favorite local Mexican restaurant

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me. My son either packs or buys lunch at school. If he packs, it is generally a lunch meat sandwich or a PB&J with some sides.

There seems to be a lot more "out" in our menu plan this week than normal. The annual event where we get to sample from local restaurants is a fun event and a great chance to see neighbors. We have some friends coming over on Saturday and they suggested the Mexican restaurant.

Looks like a great meal plan! How do you make the Black Bean soup? I love black beans...
I also have a 21 mo old... fun, huh? =)

I'll have to cue that one up as a recipe to share on my website. It's really rather simple.

21 mos is a great age! Striving for independance, but still in need of lots of help.

Your Tuesday event sounds great! I've always wanted to go to one of those.
