Menu Plan Monday


**This is just a plan and plans have the ability to change at the cook's discretion! I am so glad that menu plans are JUST PLANS because last week's plans got changed more than once! Last week for the first time, I made homemade french bread to go with our spaghetti dinner! That got some rave reviews from my family so that will definitely be something that I keep in the menu rotation!

This week is going to be interesting for two reasons:
1. I am starting the week out being sick with a cold that dh so gratefully(NOT!) passed on to me!! My head right now feels like someone took a sludge hammer to it and all my body joints ache!! So cooking will be all the “easy” meals that I have up my sleeve!!

2. This week is going to be a short week for me in the cooking dept! Because Friday afternoon till sometime on Saturday, dh and I will be on our church’s couples retreat!! The kids are spending the night at my parents’ house so I will not have to worry about meals for a good 24 hours!!!

Lunches listed are for the kids and I as dh usually takes dinner leftovers each day.

You're plan looks great! I love how you plan out all your meals, with me breakfast and lunch are up in the air but very predictable. Oatmeal for breakfast and sandwiches or leftovers for lunch. I like the variety that comes with a little planning. Thanks for the comment on my new blog. I'm very new to blogging I have a lot to learn. I sure do love reading about everyone's ideas, made me feel that I too should jump on the blogging bandwagon.
