This is the plan for dinners at our house this week. What's on your plan?
Monday: Homemade Pizza
My kids and hubby are home for the MLK holiday. I'm going to take advantage of a no homework afternoon and make this fun. Everyone will make their own individual pizzas. This will be instead of the usual … me working to get pizzas into the oven as quick as possible.
Tuesday: Sausage, Green Beans and Potatoes
(Copied right from last week's menu since we didn't have this last week.) This was a favorite dinner growing up and it's a very easy one! 1 package of smoked sausage cut up in links, 2 cans of green beans (with liquid), 5 or 6 potatoes cut in chunks and enough water to cover. Boil until potatoes are tender. That's it!
Wednesday: Shredded Pork Sandwiches, Pretzels, Veggies & Dip
The pork is already shredded and in the freezer. I like to slow cook a whole pork loin, shred it and freeze multiple baggies of it for easy dinners. It makes great tacos too!
Thursday: A friend is making us dinner ~ Soup!
A friend offered to bring us dinner on Thursday. Of course I didn't turn her down! She said that we're going to be guinea pigs for a new recipe she wants to try. I'm sure it will be great! Thanks Julie!!
Friday: Spaghetti & Meatballs Or Leftovers if there's enough in the fridge
As I've said in the past few weeks, Friday's are busy here as my hubby and I go different directions for basketball practices for 2 boys. Dinner has to be quick & easy!
Saturday: Dinner Out
A night off from cooking and doing dishes! Not sure where we will go but I think it will be an early dinner out after having fun at Icefest in Hamilton during the day. Something to warm us up. Maybe $1 Butterburgers at Culver's in Mason. More details about Icefest coming soon!
Sunday: Saucy Chops II, Mashed Potatoes & Veggie
A while ago, I searched All Recipes.com for a recipe close to a meal my mom made when I was a kid. If this isn't the exact recipe it's pretty darn close. I'm using pork cutlets ( I guess that's what you'd call them) from a pork loin I used half of for dinner 2 weeks ago. I cut the other half in slices and froze them for 2 future dinners. The sauce is very good on mashed potatoes!
If you menu plan,do you do it on a weekly or monthly basis?
