Menu Plan Monday

**Another week is upon us so that means it is time for another menu plan! This is just a plan and it could change on the cook’s whim!

Last week, I made it thru my hectic week! It is a new week and not much is planned this week so hopefully I can keep up with housecleanin’, homeschoolin’ and cookin’! Also last week, I did make everything, except chicken clubs on Saturday, on my menu. I figured with having out of town guests here this past weekend that my plans would change on those days and it did! We had my FIL and his wife and my parents here for dinner on Saturday. I served up some oven fried chicken (#5), mashed potatoes, corn, homemade coleslaw, strawberries, and homemade honey oatmeal rolls. Everyone enjoyed the meal so much I ended up with very little leftovers!

As for my new recipe, Marlboro Man's Sandwiches, that I made last week it was not that big of a hit with my family. It was good for something different but I had three of seven that decided that they didn’t even want to try them. My hubby had two sandwiches but his review of the sandwich was “it is good for something different, once in a blue moon.” The three that didn’t want to try it were served leftover sloppy joes for sandwiches and then at the rest of what I fixed to go with the Marlboro Man’s Sandwiches.

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Hubby usually will take dinner leftovers each day.

Looks like a good week. I did not get to make the chicken rice soup, but still want to do it.
