Menu Plan Monday ~ 3 January

Happy New Year!!

My menu planning is back on track this week. I took the two weeks of holiday vacation off – mostly because we had so much going on I wasn’t sure which nights I would be cooking and which ones I wouldn’t.  Add to that a very nasty cold that I developed right before Christmas, and my cooking was way off track for most of the holidays.

But, I’m feeling better (thank goodness!) and ready to get my family back into our normal groove. I think they are, too, even if they don’t verbalize it.

Here’s what I have on tap for this week’s dinners:

  • Mama’s Meatloaf with roasted vegetables
  • Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes & gravy
    (this was actually our New Year's day dinner)
  • Crock pot roast with rice and veggies
  • Sloppy Joes with homemade fries
  • Salmon croquettes with cheese grits
  • Crock pot chicken parmesan with pasta
    (This was Sunday dinner with the leftover chicken from New Year's Day) 
  • Taco night

I will figure something out to re-invent the leftover roast (there are always leftovers of that) – maybe toss it into a stew or soup. 

I’ll share the recipes for a couple of the other dinner items later this week – so stay tuned…
