Menu Plan week of 9/15

SOUP OF THE WEEK:  I often make a big pot of soup and pack it in my lunch all week when I'm working.  Today (Sunday) I'm making my favorite soup-- my own recipe for Amy's Potato Soup.  

LAST WEEK'S MENU NOTES:  We loved the Melty Chicken.  I'll be putting that recipe into my regular rotation, especially since the ingredients are some I always have on hand.  

Also-- my new DIY menu board is working really well!  One morning I was in a rush to leave for work and forgot to put the pork roast in the crockpot.  Normally, nobody but me would remember what was planned that day.  That night, though, DH, who was apparently looking forward to the pulled pork, pointed out the menu board-- oops! We made do with fish sticks and macaroni, and we had pulled pork the next day.   I guess if I'm going to post the menu, I'll have to get used to being held accountable, too!  ;) 

The menu board is also becoming a source of entertainment, as the kids add their editorial comments and drawings to it during the week.   I'm so glad I finally put together that simple project!

This week's supper plan:  
  • MONDAY:  ham & cheese omelets, sliced tomatoes
  • TUESDAY:  new Pinterest recipe: "No Peek" Chicken & Rice, steamed broccoli   * I've been wanting to try this forever but it has to bake for 2.5 hours, so I had to save it for a day that I'll be home all afternoon!
  • WEDNESDAY: family favorite: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans
  • FRIDAY: homemade pizza

  • SATURDAY:  leftovers
