Menu Planning Monday

This is not my first time menu planning. Actually, before our big move to Virginia, I was getting quite good at it. However, after 6 months of not having done so I am out of practice. Then I saw one of my bloggy buddies was doing this menu plan thing from I'm an Organizing Junkie. I thought I'd give it a try again.

Well, sort of a try. I've had the same menu on my wall for about 2 weeks, so I'm starting from scratch. I also have a bit of a push this week as we're having friends over on Wednesday (thankfully).

Without further ado, I give you my menu (please don't compare it; it's really simple):

Monday: Cheeseburger Macaroni HH (Hamburger Helper) with green beans. I think I'm also going to throw together a sort of fruit salad: white peaches, strawberries, apples, and bananas

Tuesday: sloppy joes (per request from Moose who has been playing with the Manwich can for weeks now) with rice of some sort and creamed corn

Wednesday: chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, and corn

Thursday: chicken quesadillas and Spanish rice

Friday: beef stroganoff HH with corn and some mashed potatoes

Saturday: We've been invited to 2 BBQs so I'm guessing hot dogs and burgers!

Sunday: tater tot casserole (I'll try to include my recipe on Sunday)

I did my first menu plan with Organizing Junkie today also! My meals aren't very fancy either and I was trying desperately to use what we had on hand as our grocery budget leaves much to be desired this week!!

Ps. The quesadillla's sound really good...I'll be over, kay?
