I'm Baaaaack!


It's been a long hiatus but I'm back to my weekly posts. Especially with a new one too! I do this every week so I thought I would share.... It's Menu Planning Monday! Check out orgjunkie.com for others who are participating in this! So that means not one, but two posts on Monday! Can you handle it? I'll see if I can.

I've been menu planning for a while, all in an effort to save money. And let me tell you, it really works. I've tried weekly and monthly plans, but just can't be organized enough to keep a good monthly plan. I try to make out a month at a time purposefully leaving holes so that I move things as I go and weekly work around it based on that outline.

So here's my weekly plan:

Monday- "Fancy" Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (Fancy means with cheddar and provolone instead of American)
Tuesday- Chicken and Rice Casserole and Broccoli (made with Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken, which I'll then use the chicken for the rest of the week)
Wednesday- Quesadillas
Thursday- Chicken Fried Rice
Friday- Sausage Pasta
Saturday- BBQ pork sandwiches
Easter Sunday- (Brunch) Ham, Quiche, Fruit Salad, Waffles, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Deviled Eggs
Monday- Buffalo Chicken Wings and Spinach Artichoke Dip

We're having "more" than we normally would because guests will be in town Wednesday through next week.

I like the sausage pasta, brunch sounds delicious, and are we having the wings and dip before I leave on Monday? :-)
