Menu Monday 05.04

In the past, I shared my weekly menu plan with you. Typically, I don't do it this way. I prefer to make my menus from paycheck to paycheck. This way, I spend all I need to in 1 trip with only an occasional trip back to the store for fruit, milk, bread, etc. So, here is our meal plan until next Friday. :)

Monday--leftover rotisserie chicken & potato salad, with a garden salad
Tuesday--mini taco bowls with chips & salsa (for Cinco de Mayo!)
Wednesday--barbecue chicken in the crockpot with coleslaw and corn
Thursday--pancakes, sausage, and scrambled eggs
Friday--grilled pork chops, baked potato, sweet peas
Saturday--out to eat
Sunday--dinner at Shelli's for Mother's Day
Monday--hot dogs, french fries, coleslaw
Tuesday--beef, tomato, and cheddar macaroni with green beans and garlic bread
Wednesday--red beans & rice with sausage, corn bread
Thursday--beef stew with biscuits
Friday--lemon garlic tilapia, mashed potatoes, salad

If you are interested in any of the recipes above, just leave me a comment! The lemon garlic tilapia will be a new recipe for us to try. The beef, tomato, & cheddar macaroni is a great kid-friendly meal that you can put together quickly and uses ingredients that I usually have on hand. And, I love the red beans & rice recipe--one of my favorites! I'd be glad to share if you'd like, it's just too time consuming to post the links for all of the recipes. Sorry! :)

I can't wait to post tomorrow's "Toddler Tuesday". We had such a fun (but busy) weekend with Tay's 3rd birthday party & Ella's baby dedication at church. I'll try to post some pictures this week, too. I am AMAZED at how fast Ella is growing!
