Menu Plan Monday 6/1-6/7

**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’s menus were non-existent! My MIL was in town from Tuesday afternoon till Saturday morning. Hubby and I were gone Thursday thru Friday morning and then the family left for a day trip. So I guess you could classify it as a “vacation week”. A “vacation week” that ended with my 18mo getting stitches in his face!!

I have done my shopping for this week already so I should be set other than getting more milk in the house! Anyone got any good recipes for ground beef other than grilled burgers?? I got 14 lbs of it on markdown, so far I have made up some burgers for the freezer and some taco meat. I am thinking on getting some meatballs done as well but what else can be done??

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day. I am missing a couple of dinner plans this week because I need to take stock of my freezer inventory again! :) I will fill those in later!

Thanks for stopping by! My mom always made this pizza bread that was basically ground beef mixed with some sausage, cheese, and tomato sauce in bread dough from the freezer section. (obviously homemade bread dough would work, too.) You can either make one big calzone-type thing, or put it in smaller pieces of dough which are great for lunches. Though I guess when you homeschool, making lunches are not as important. :) I also like to add other veggies like spinach, peppers, or onions.

Sounds like a great week! I love how detailed your plan is.

Ideas for ground beef? Spaghetti sauce! It freezes well and is easy to make. I posted a recipe yesterday if you need one.

So sorry to hear about your 18 mo old...hope all is well (or getting better) now.

Have a great week! :-)
