Last week's menu went really well. We did end up eating leftovers one night with the Spaghetti Pie, and then Neal and I went out to supper on Saturday. So, I pushed two of my meals into this week's menu. :)
It really does help to plan our meals. It takes a lot of pressure off during the week to have the meals planned out. Just because I make a menu doesn't tie me down to a certain meal each night, but it gives me the option of having it and I know the ingredients are in my pantry! It's nice!
Here's my plan for this week:
Sunday: Barbecue Pork in the crockpot (I used liquid smoke, salt and pepper) and then we made sandwiches using Sauer's Original Barbecue sauce. This is a good, "vinegary" sauce. We topped it off with coleslaw and it was so good! We also had Cowboy Caviar, scoop style tortilla chips, and canned baked beans. It's nice to have a quick meal after church on Sundays!
Monday: Hot Dogs (We don't have these often, but we enjoy them from time to time), oven-baked red potatoes, and salad.
Tuesday: Oven Fried Fish, brown basmati rice, squash, and lima beans
Wednesday: Homemade Pizza (I'll grind the wheat for my pizza crust and call it healthy. :) Salad
Thursday: Vietnamese Fried Rice, sauteed squash, mushrooms, onion and garlic
Friday: Tuna Casserole, some type of veggies (with a garden right outside, we'll eat what's ready)
Saturday: Oriental Salad with Chicken(I cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and cook in lite soy sauce.
This week I'm also planning on making Zucchini Bread (using Paula Deen's recipe) and Double Layer Chocolate Pie.
