Menu Plan Monday 5/11-5/17

**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!

I am starting week 3 of challenging myself with pantry shopping and this is the second menu after starting my challenge! Here is last week's menu! At the end of last week, there was a menu change on Friday. I forgot that we were going to a fundraiser for friends from church where the hubby is suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). So I had to do a quick dinner rather than grilling burgers so I just did up frozen pizzas and fries from my freezer stockpile! That ended up being the only change to the menu last week.

This week, I have planned a couple of theme nights! There will be “Thanksgiving in May” where I am roasting a 13lb turkey that I got during the sales around Thanksgiving and I will be fixing all the trimmings. Also, we will be having a “picnic night/grilling out” using the burgers that we didn’t have last weekend.

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

About the granola recipe. I promised my hubby that I would make it. I'm going to get the ingredients today-so I have to find a recipe! If it turns out great, I'll post it on my site.
