Menu Plan Monday 11/7= Pinterest Inspired!

Are you on Pinterest? Normally I would think of it more for craft ideas, but lately, I've found some great recipes there. I'm AmyMCGS there... come and follow me, or leave me your email address if you need an invitation to join.  And leave me a note here with your Pinterest name so I can follow you back! :)

  • MONDAY: new recipe from Pinterest: Crispy Cheddar Chicken, smashed potatoes, green beans
  • TUESDAY:  my crockpot spaghetti sauce over pasta, garlic bread, salad  (decided on this after drooling over a pasta casserole I saw on Pinterest-- had to make do with ingredients I already had on hand instead)
  • WEDNESDAY: a new crockpot recipe: chuck roast, an envelope of gravy mix, Italian dressing mix, water.   I'll actually be substituting real Italian dressing and skipping the water- I think that will be fine.   I think we'll shred that and make wraps out of it (lettuce, cheese, etc.).  (If this entire menu entry looks familiar, it's because it's been on my menu twice before and somehow this is always the meal we wind up skipping.  Maybe this will be the week I finally make it!)
  • THURSDAY: my version of McRibs= frozen BBQ Ribettes on sub buns, homemade baked fries
  • FRIDAY: another new recipe from Pinterest: Chicken/ Broccoli/ Stuffing foil packs 
  • SATURDAY: It's Pizza Night here every Saturday- we pretty much always have some variety of homemade pizza and tossed salad.

  1. I keep hearing about Pinterest. I need to get on board. Mostly I am just afraid of having yet another addiction! LOL

    Your recipes for the week sound wonderful!


  2. Hi Amy! Thanks for taking time to visit my blog :) I also have pinned the Crispy Cheddar Chicken - I hope it turns out yummy! Feel free to check out my boards: pinterest.com/sbeesley

  3. I make my beef roast that way and it's really yummy. I sometimes add a Ranch dressing mix packet too.

  4. Thanks for coming to visit me at My Simple Texas Life. I am also on Pinterest although I haven't been able to pin many things yet. I think it's a great place...kind of like 'word of mouth' advertising you know? I followed you and will definitely be checking out your pins. I'm teresaintx on Pinterest btw.
