  • Menu Plan Monday: 10/17/11

    I am really excited about the cooler weather we’re getting, after it hit 100 degrees again last week. I am realizing just how much I enjoy using my oven, LOL! Here’s what’s on tap this week:

    Monday – Stuffed Acorn Squash (using leftover pork and rice)

    Tuesday – Roasted Cauliflower & Sardine Pasta

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Sandwiches

    Friday – Chili con carne (didn’t get to it last week)

    Saturday – Calamari, Roasted Butternut Squash

    Sunday – Dinner out

    1. Great menu plan, totally intrigued by the sardine pasta, wonder if my kiddos would eat it?

        My oldest who’s 6 loves this, my younger one who’s 4 doesn’t like it (yet!). Give it a try – you never know :)

    2. Your meal plan sounds delicious! Following you over from MPM!
