Menu Plan Monday

I have another week off from work, so I hope to get some organizing done. The Christmas turkey is almost gone. I have 3 quarts of broth in the freezer. The Historian will finally get a break on January 1. He's been working almost every day this month except for Christmas Day. Fortunately we have no required activities this week.

Monday: Mexican rice chicken casserole thing made with leftover turkey, sliced apples

Tuesday:  Mac and Cheese with hamburger and spinach

Wednesday: Hoppin' John Soup, collards, cornbread

Thursday: Loaded baked potatoes, leftover soup, salad

Friday: Buffalo or plain chicken wraps, broccoli, oranges

Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday: Lasagna, salad, garlic bread

More ideas can be found at Menu Plan Monday.

Menu Plan Monday

Here is my second edition of Menu Plan Monday hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie.

This weeks is a bear. It's finals week at the college, and I have to get grades turned around very quickly. To make matters worse, almost every activity we have is having a Christmas party this week and of course we have to take food. I'm trying to keep our suppers simple.

Monday: (Didn't get to this one last week) Olive Garden Sausage Soup

Tuesday: Bean and cheese quesadillas 

Wednesday: Garlic Lime Chicken and mashed potatoes

Thursday: Crock Pot Roast Beef

Friday: Leftovers

Other cooking: Bake a bunch of potatoes to have for quick lunches, make batch of crock pot granola, make ginger snaps

Menu Plan Monday--First Entry

Why haven't I been blogging? No real reason. We've been busy, but that's our normal these days. I guess I just got used to not blogging.  I'm going to try to make more of an effort by linking up with some weekly themes.

Menu Plan Monday is hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie. Menu planning is trouble area for me, so I hope this helps me to be more organized.

Here's my first menu:

Monday: Moroccan Spiced Stew with chicken. It's a Campbell's Slow Cooked Sauce packet. The Historian bought it. I try to stay away from processed stuff, but it needs to be used.

Tuesday: Ham Casserole  

Wednesday: Salmon Patties and leftovers

Friday: Homemade Pizza--probably ham and pineapple
