Menu Plan Monday

I had a really great trip to the grocery store this week. I forgot to use my $1 Catalina from my last visit, bummer!, but I did earn an additional $9 for my next visit. More to come on my shopping trip.

We were lucky to have my brother as a guest Sunday night at dinner, he was in town for business and stopped by. I chose to make a family favorite from our childhood for his visit. (Plus my son lists it as one of his favorites in his All About Me journal.) The kids always love to have company for dinner and are always disappointed when they leave.

Monday night was are experimenting with a new recipe. I have this wonderful talent of clipping recipes from magazines, newspapers, coupon fliers, grocery ads and more, but I seem to never get around to trying most, so I am on a mission to pull out a new recipe each week and determine if it is a keeper or not. That way, I can record them in my cookbook and clean up all of these pieces of paper that have accumulated.

At our house, the focus is on dinners. I tend to only list the main course and any standard side we have with it. We do still have vegetables and/or fruit with each of our dinners, I just don't always call them out.

Sunday
Cereal
out
Chicken Gravy over Biscuits

Monday
Nacho Mac 'n' Cheese

Tuesday
Leftovers

Wednesday

Thursday

Friday

Saturday

Dinner with friends - not sure what they are planning

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.
