Menu Monday

It's the last week of January!  We have made it so far with our one grocery trip.  As far as I can remember, we have only bought 1 extra gallon of milk, tortillas (Kevin wanted on the weekend with the ham.), a can of potatoes (for the roast), and food for Adelaide.  I think that's pretty good.

This week I am going to start on planning for the month of February.  This will be a little more challenging to plan for early, because there are some special events like birthdays, Super Bowl, and Valentine's Day that may require a little more.  I am hoping that I won't spend as much when I go to the grocery store since we have some things left over.  We will see how that goes.

Look Back at New Things on Last Week's Menu
Monday: Crockpot Pot Roast - This was not my favorite recipe for a roast.  I am going to try something different next time, but we did eat it that night.  However, we threw the rest away. :(

Thursday: Tortellini Sausage Soup - I really liked this soup, but of course I like anything with tortellini.  The carrots didn't cook enough so I may not put them in next time, but it was still good.

We ate out Saturday morning for breakfast, and of course our normal Sunday lunch at Dairy Cream.  However, we still have leftovers that we can eat on this upcoming week.  

This Week's Menu
Garlic Bread

I have a Thirty-One party to host this night so I wanted something that wouldn't require a lot of time in the kitchen.  I think this will work great.  You cook everything except the noodles in the crockpot for 7 hours, and then just cook the noodles when you are ready to serve.  I hope it is as good as it looks.


Since have leftovers from last week and I am pretty sure that we will have leftovers from Monday night's meal, I plan on doing leftovers early this week.  This will allow me not to be rushed to Bible Study.

Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans

I have cooked this pork tenderloin a few times, and it is really good.  (Bunco Ladies, this is what I cooked the last time Bunco was at my house.)  

Garlic Bread

I try not to do pasta two times in a week, but I am this week.  We have had this recipe before, and it's really good.  You don't necessarily have to bake it if you are short on time, but baking it really makes it good.

Ultimate Nachos

I am always looking for something fun and different for Friday nights.  I really don't like cooking on Friday nights so this spices things up.  I believe the recipe I have for this did not come from the internet.  I think it might have came on a Velveeta box, but I am not sure.  

I hope you see something that you can use this week!  Check back next weekend to see how menu planning for February goes as well as the ultimate grocery trip.

  1. I love planning my meals too!! I usually plan the month ahead of time too, unless I am too lazy! I love how you share what you did this past week, and then give us a sneak peek at what you are going to do! We try new pinterest recipes all of the time, but I am always wondering how other people enjoyed them!
