Menu Plan - Sept 20, 2009

Ugh. My menu plan kinda went out the window this week. Instead of Hubby being away 4 dinners this week, he was away 6! I really don't  like cooking a big meal, with lots of dishes to do when he's not home to eat and run some interference with the kids. When I plan a big meal without him I tend to get interrupted many times and end up being too stressed or burning something. I'm afraid I didn't have that many things planned/stocked that I could whip up quickly and the kids would like. So, there were several changes and less than healthy meals at our house this week.

Here's what we've used from the September plan:
Stir Fry x2 1x
Mac & Cheese/Hot dogs
"Go To" Chicken Casserole - from the freezer
Chicken Tettrazini
Breakfast for Dinner - waffles, sausage, fried apples
Hamburgers on the grill
Meatballs - maybe Sweet &Sour
Spaghetti x2 x1
Pizza x2 x1 (using this dough and this sauce, topped with ham & pineapple)
Honey Garlic Chicken
Parmesan Crusted Porkchops (holdover from August)
Sloppy Joes (another holdover from August)
Chicken & Dumplings (probably on the first really crisp day)
Vidalia Onion Pie (holdover from July and August!)
Twice Baked Potatoes
Leftovers x4 x2
These weren't part of the original plan, but this week we also had:
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Homemade Shake N Bake Chicken Nuggets

And here's what's on the plan this week:

B - Cereal
D - Lemon Pepper Drumsticks (recipe to be posted this week)
