Menu Planning Monday



I was blog surfing recently and saw this event on Organized Junkie and thought it would be fun to participate. I don't always plan my menus on the same day of the week but it just so happens that his week I am doing so on a Monday. I have been menu planning for a long time now and although it's easy for me to do it's always nice to see what other are planning and get new and fresh ideas.

My challenge this particular two-week period is that the budget is a bit tighter than normal AND we have a birthday to celebrate this week. Here is what I plan to prepare for the next two weeks. I plan to use my crock pots quite a but due to a long list of things to do before we get under way with our new homeschool year.


Monday - Lentil Stew, Homemade Bread
Tuesday - Pizza for the Birthday Girl (Her choice, store bought or eat out)
Wednesday - Spaghetti, Garlic Broccoli
Thursday - Chili Burgers, Corn, Mashed Potatoes (Crock Pot)
Friday - Orange Hoisin Chicken, Brown Rice, Asian Mixed Veggies (Crock Pot)
Saturday - Pinto beans and butter beans, Greens, corn bread, rice
Sunday - Leftovers
Monday - Green Rice Casserole, BBQ Pork -n- beans with hot dogs (Crock Pot)
Tuesday - Chicken Parmesan, broccoli, linguini
Wednesday - Chicken Sate, cauliflower, Rice and Peas
Thursday -hot dogs, scalloped potatoes, Green Beans (Crock Pot)
Friday - Homemade Pizza, Salad
Saturday - Japanese Beef Curry with Rice, Asian Mixed Veggies (Crock pot)
Sunday - Leftovers

Sounds like a yummy couple of weeks! I'd love to see the recipe for the Hoisin Chicken. You've got quite a bit of Crock Pot recipes! I haven't been using mine quite as much lately.
