… at least I think it is – my monkeys are not so sure, either. It’s the first day back to school after spring break and none of us wanted to get up early this morning.
One thing I do have in hand this week is our menu plan, though. Big Girl went shopping with me on Saturday and helped me to plan out what we’ll eat for the week. It was nice having her with me to help.
Here’s what we have planned:
I also made SuperMan some broccoli salad to eat on during the week and we have leftover honey ham from Easter dinner that we’ll have for lunches this week.

I am so loving this fall weather. Makes me feel so alive and so much like baking and creating.
Busy week in our house this week – the girls had a break from dance classes last week, but we’re back on the normal schedule this week so we will be busy. I’ve got some comfort foods planned and hoping to find time to do a little baking as well, but we will see.
Here’s what’s on the menu for us this week:
- Country Fried Steak & Gravy
I use cubed steaks for this and cook them low & slow on the stove for about an hour. Makes a really tender steak. I’ll serve with some mashed potatoes and veggies.
- Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
This is one of Big Girl’s favorite meals and comfort food for me. I make it the easy way – I use Paul Newman’s Garlic Alfredo sauce (I watch for it when it’s on sale and stock up) and whole wheat noodles.
- Sesame chicken bites
One of my go-to easy recipes that the kids love. I’ll serve it with some baked french fries and fruit.
- Salmon Croquettes
SuperMan loves the leftovers for breakfast sandwiches.
And, well, I don’t know what else. I’ll see where the week takes me, I guess, but this gets me started. I’ll probably toss in some chili or a crock-pot meal in the mix but I will wait to see where the week’s agenda goes.
I hope you have a great week! Check out other menu plans over at orgjunkie.com.
I have been planning my family menus for years – probably since the time Little Bit was born. I have been a fluttering FlyBaby for about that long, trying to get myself on plan with the Fly Lady (but it never seems to “stick”). However, one thing I love about her whole thing is the idea of planning ahead. I am a planner. I love my lists and my plans. So, that part works for me.
Enter Menu Plan Monday –
I stumbled across this meme over on orgjunkie.com and I love the idea! Creating your meal plan, sharing it with others, and getting ideas from the meal plans others have created.
So, I’m joining the bandwagon. Want to join with me? It’s super easy. Figure out your meal plan for the week – what will you be cooking for your family?
Write them down – you can even share in the comments here if you’d like – and link them to the linky on orgjunkie’s blog. It’s been fun looking at other people’s meal plans – and has given me some ideas for next week’s menus.
Here are the meals I’m cooking this week:
I’m sure we’ll eat out once – usually on Sunday after church. So, with leftovers, that should carry me through the weekend.
I use AllRecipes a lot – you will see that a bunch of these recipes are linked there. I love that I can create my own recipes and store them there as well.
Ok, now it’s your turn! What are you serving this week?
