Menu Plan Monday 10/14

We went off my plan a couple of nights last week, but we still managed to eat at home and avoid fast food, so I count that as a win!  :)

SOUP OF THE WEEK:  Lately I've gotten into the habit of making a big pot of soup on the weekend and then packing it in my lunch during the week.  Tonight, I made a quick version of My Tortilla Soup Recipe.  That's one that I throw together based on what's on hand, but this week's version included: a can of fire-roasted tomatoes, a can of creamed corn, a can of chicken and rice soup, a can of cream of mushroom soup, and various herbs and spices (garlic, chives, red pepper, etc.).   I usually add chicken (canned or leftovers) but I decided to leave that out tonight, since I'm probably the only one eating this, and I like it just as well without the meat. 

  • WEDNESDAY:  Mommy McRibs  (that's what my kids call it when we take frozen BBQ ribettes and serve them on buns), homemade baked fries, salad
  • FRIDAY:  homemade pizza
A few of those days might get switched around, but at least I have a general plan for the week.  I'm amazed how much easier the evenings go when I don't even have to think about what to have for supper.
