Menu Plan Monday... July 27th

I think I'm getting better at this menu planning thing. I definitely feel better during the week if I don't have to worry about what we're gonna eat!
And I'm just starting to feel like maybe a habit is forming! Which would be great :)

Monday - Irish Stew - I tweak it a little... I add approx 4 diced potatoes, 1/4 t celery salt, 6 oz tomato paste, 2-3 cloves garlic, 2 bay leaves, a couple dashes of paprika, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauces, 3 cups beef broth, and a green pepper if I have it...just throw it all in the crock pot together. I don't cut up the meat, just let it cook all day and then shred it.

Tuesday - softball game...we'll throw in a frozen pizza to eat quick beforehand

Wednesday - dinner @ friends' house...I'll just need to do either salad or dessert to go along with dinner.

Thursday - Lime chicken tacos - this meat is really good...we'll probably use it for hard tacos this time, but we've also cooked it before and eaten it with soft tacos and quesadillas.

Friday - need a fairly quick idea for today too...maybe we'll have leftover meat from last night to make quesadillas with!

Saturday - my brother is moving to a new apartment so my family will be in town. We'll probably be able to talk them into taking us out to eat somewhere :)

Menu Plan Monday...

I've missed a couple weeks posting my menu plan...some of the weeks I've had a plan in my head, and some I didn't think about it at all. So I'm gonna try again this week.

My hubby is out of town most of the week, so that makes it a little trickier for me to eat right. I don't do too well cooking for just me! I may just see what leftovers are in the fridge, they need used up anyway!

Tonight - I want to make some quacamole cuz I never have, and hubby doesn't like it, so it's the perfect time to try it. That will probably end up being my dinner, guacamole and tortilla chips.

Tuesday - I'm going to our church softball game, so something fairly quick to eat... I do have some pasta sauce that needs eaten, so maybe I'll make some pasta and try to finish up the sauce.

Wednesday - taking dinner to a friend's house...I'll make Crock-pot cream cheese chicken with pasta... ... love this recipe!!

Thursday - leftovers from last night if there are any...

Friday - have the day off, and I think we might be having company come I need to figure out something to make.

Saturday - Company...maybe we'll just go out for dinner?

... I sure do eat a lot of pasta!
