Menu Plan Monday is Such a wonderful idea. I use to belong to a What's For Dinner Forum way back at the beginning of the WWW, but that forum closed a long time ago. Menu Planning is one thing I do well. OK I am bragging a bit, that is because my other household skills need improving.
My menus are too much focused around meat entrees. I am trying to change that with at least a couple of vegetarian type entrees a week. The classic meal planning I was taught was a meat entree, a salad opt., vegetable, and starchy compliment. That is old school in todays world, so I am trying to adapt more. I also try to do a roast of some kind on Sundays to have meat leftovers for the week for salads and sandwiches.
Monday: Chicken Paprika. (using the extra grilled chicken from last Saturdays dinner that I froze.) Served over noodles. Green beans
Tuesday: Homemade Pizza Night. (Can be vegetarian)
Wednesday: Crock Pot Split Pea Soup, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Thursday: Sweet-Sour Pork Chops Over Rice
Friday: Spaghetti with Italian Marinara Sauce (I make up a big batch of sauce and keep it in 2 and 4 cup portions in the freezer), Tossed Salad, Broccoli Spears
Saturday: Hamburgers on the Grill, Grilled Potato Wedges, Hamburger Fixins.
Sunday: Savory Roast Pork and Apple Stuffing.
