Menu Monday

We are halfway through the month, and I still have plenty of things to cook.  I did go to Sam's yesterday and buy some more milk and a few other things.  Overall, we are eating out less and enjoying having sit down meals at home.

Look Back at New Things on Last Week's Menu
Monday: Little Meats and Gravy- This turned out really good.  We had it over egg noodles.  Kevin bought me a new crockpot for Christmas, and it has a stirrer that goes every hour if set.  We used it for this, and I think it really helped.

Thursday: Chicken & Wild Rice Casserole- This was good, but I wouldn't use it as a main meal.  It would be better as an appetizer.  I will say that it was easy to  make which I always like.  

Friday: Meatball Sub on a Stick - This recipe looked really fun.  However, I was not able to find the Pillsbury breadsticks, and I tried more than one store.  Instead, I tried using crescent rolls on some and pizza dough on others.  This made it extremely difficult to make.  If I was going to make this again, I would just use frozen meatballs instead of trying to make my own (even though that wasn't hard) and I would make sure to have the breadsticks.  I do think kids would love this!

This Week's Menu - 

It's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and I don't have to work.  I realized while cleaning that I need to use up some potatoes before they go bad so I figured this would be a great recipe to do tonight.  


My family loves salads!  I really think I could eat them everyday  I don't get home until late on Tuesdays, because I try to spend an hour or two at the gym.  This makes Tuesdays a great night for an easy meal that I can already have prepared.  


Our fridge is already full to the max with leftovers so I know when I make tonight's meal that we will have plenty to have leftovers for lunch this week and for this night.


Tacos are an easy meal that doesn't take too long to make.  However, when we have tacos I don't usually have anything to eat the next day for lunch.  Since we have so many leftovers already, I felt like this was a great place to fit tacos in on the menu for this month.  If for some reason we don't have any leftovers, I can order out from work on Friday.


I am not a big fan of pizza, but Kevin loves it.  I thought this was a good variation of pizza that looks pretty good.  It also looks fun for a Friday night movie night. :)

Here's to a great week!
