Menu Plan Monday: Week of September 22, 2014

The last couple of weeks have been crazy hot, to the point where I didn't turn on the oven at all. {Thankfully, I can bake in my toaster oven!} The next week is supposed to be cooler, so maybe I will be able to bake extra and freeze some goodies. I'd also like to get some meals in the freezer so that some nights can be super easy. And, I realize I need to use my slow cooker more too!

I promised Jan an update on last week's Cauliflower Fried Rice: It looked fantastic, but I wouldn't say it tasted good. It was definitely edible, but we didn't save the leftovers for the next day's lunch, like we usually do, which says a lot.

So here's what I'm thinking for this week:

Monday - Dinner out {girls' night for me, boys' night for the hubby and sons}

Tuesday - Mac & Cheese, some kind of vegetable

Wednesday - Bean & Cheese Enchiladas {I'll make two or three meals' worth and freeze the extras!}

Thursday - Roast Cooker Shredded Beef {I'm going to get a big roast to make sure there are lots of leftovers}, Baked Potatoes, Garlic Bread, and some other kind of veggie

Friday - Baked Eggs with Spinach and Mushrooms, maybe some fruit or a fruit-y dessert

Saturday - Dinner out {I've been asked to bring vegetables, so I'll roast some cauliflower and I'm also thinking I'll make this meatless polenta entree as a side dish}

Sunday - Leftovers
