Menu Plan Monday 8/10-8/16

**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 went off without too much trouble! The “star” of the week goes to the Pioneer Woman’s crashed potatoes!!! I used 2 1/2 lbs of red potatoes and then for seasonings just used parsley (on some) along with salt and pepper! Hubby made the comment that he thought they were going to be more “loaded”(think twice baked) but I told him no, I was just following the recipe! So I am going to put them on the menu again this week and this time I am going to add bacon bits to some and have grated cheese to melt on top when they are all done cooking!

This week’s grocery shopping was another week of a stockpiling. I did get to my favorite store for their 10 for $10 get 11th item Free Sale plus I purchased a few more items that were needed!!

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Usually with our lunches I served carrot sticks, and some kind of fruit along with juice to drink. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day along with several items for snacks. This week, hubby will be using his “lunches” for his “dinners” as he will be working late Monday-Thursday due to a team project with deadlines!

It all looks good. We've tried the crashed potatoes and loved them. I hadn't thought of dressing them up, though. I may have that back on my menu plan real soon. :)

Crashed potatoes are a definite favorite around here. You'll have to let me know how the "loaded crashed potatoes" turn out. That sounds like a great idea.

By the way, I tagged you on my blog.
