Menu Plan Monday

Welcome to another week!

We are having some unseasonably warm weather
this winter
and I am putting that as number one on my list
of things I am grateful for this week.

It was wonderful to have the kids go outside
and run around and play without being dressed
head to toe in warm weather gear.
They did come in coated in mud and dirt
from playing out in the stream, but hey, that's cool.

Here's the planned Menu for this week:

"The Ikea Knock-Off Meal" :
Swedish meatballs with gravy, egg noodles, red potatoes.

chicken milanese, corn, jello with fruit.

Wednesday: Ree's Marlboro Man sandwiches, tater tots, salad, green beans.

Thursday: scrambled eggs with cheese, fruit salad, biscuits with butter and honey.
(Hosting book club tonight)

Friday: Herb Marinated London Broil, mashed potatoes, peas.

Weekend- French dip sandwiches using leftover London Broil,
other leftovers from previous meals.

I've seriously been thinking of doing this kind of meal planning, too. Heaven knows I need to do something other than look inside the refrigerator at 5 PM every night and wonder "Hmmm. What shall I throw together tonight??"

Michelle and I just returned from Iowa, and the refrigerator is bare. It will be Chick Fil-A tonight, our last excursion into the land of Fast Food. Then, it's back to vegetables, salads and healthier meals. The holidays have ended indeed!
