Menu Plan Monday

What I liked most about The Pantry Challenge was that it forced me to think carefully about what we needed to eat each week, and how we could eat most effectively. I liked having dinners planned in advance; I didn't always follow the plan exactly, sometimes plans would get shifted around, but for the most part I followed the plan that I had made! I'm going to keep it up!
  • Monday: Lasagna with salad and bread (as previously planned)
  • Tuesday: Creamy Enchilada Casserole (My son's request. Again!) and broccoli
  • Wednesday: Mom's Chili with homemade cornbread , green beans
  • Thursday: Coconut Barley Pilaf--a new recipe! w/vegetable (NOTE: I've reviewed this recipe here. Please read my recommendations before you try this, as the liquid measurements don't appear to be accurate.)
  • Friday: Leftovers
  • Saturday: Make Your Own Pizza, vegetable
  • Sunday: Leftovers from Sunday Brunch
  • Monday: Spaghetti with Meatballs and vegetable
Soup of the Week: Chicken Bone Soup (makes stock to use for cooking)

I'll be preparing for the brunch this weekend, which is why the meals get simpler as we get closer to the end of the week! I'll also be preparing some extra items for my Freezer Cooking Day tomorrow.
