  • Menu Plan Monday: Hoping for an easier week!

    Last week was just crazy, but hopefully things will be back to normal this week. I want to do some freezer cooking but my freezers are both packed right now, so I will try to clear some space in them this week. Here’s what I’m thinking:

    Monday – Chicken & Rice Casserole, using shredded chicken that’s in the fridge and some of the cheap frozen broccoli I picked up last week during the current Ralphs Mega Sale. I would like to add another vegetable, but we’ll have to see what I can come up with.

    Tuesday – Beef Tacos, Salad

    Wednesday – All Day Mac & Cheese, Salad

    Thursday – Pizza, Salad

    Friday – Meatloaf Heroes on Artisan Bread (using frozen leftover meatloaf), Creamed Spinach

    Saturday – Leftovers

    Sunday – Dinner out

      I hope you both like it-it's always nerve wracking to see folks trying one of my recipes for the first time 🙂
