Menu Plan Monday October 8

Menu Plan Monday October 8

After one totally jam packed weekend, can I say I am so glad the kids do not have school today and we can just lounge around in jammies all day? I normally do my planning for the week on Sunday afternoon, but since I was chaperoning a group of High School Cheerleaders who were performing at halftime at an NFL game yesterday, I get to plan this morning instead.

I am working on using up what we have this week so I can defrost our stand up freezer some time this month.

  • MondaySteak Fajitas using beef tips I have on hand and green peppers I cut up and froze at the end of the summer. I will stop at the market and get an onion, but we have all the fixings already.
  • TuesdaySausage and potatoes – I saw this recipe last week while visiting other MPM posts and it is perfect for using up some frozen sausage and the remainder of a bag of potatoes we have on hand (and the peppers I froze)
  • Wednesday – Breakfast for dinner – somehow my husband and I both bought eggs recently and now we have more than we need. I’m thinking omelets, toast and fruit salad should do the job.
  • Thursday – Spaghetti and meat sauce with salad for the family. Soup and salad for me since I eat gluten-free and don’t want to make two separate batches of pasta.
  • Friday – Homecoming game at the high school. Left over buffet for who ever is home!

PS – the photo is of Lynn’s Sausage and Potatoes which look so good, I just had to add this to my menu for the week
