Menu Plan Monday 10/5-10/11

**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 menu had a couple of meals that were switched around but other than that meals were eaten as scheduled.

I ended up being able to get enough food with this week's shopping trip that I won’t have to do any shopping for two weeks! I am trying to get where I only need to do major grocery shopping every two weeks and on the off weeks just get perishable items like milk, eggs, fresh fruit and veggies.

Several weeks ago for Menu Plan Monday, Laura did a themed one on family favorites well for this week, I have planned some of our family favorites--part two!(here is part one if you are interested!) My hubby is going to be working long hours this week and I am not sure if he will be joining us for dinner every night so I wanted to do meals that would reheat easily for him.

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Usually with our lunches I serve carrot sticks, and some kind of in-season fruit along with juice or water to drink. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day along with several items for snacks.
