Menu Plan - 10-18-2009

We didn't do very well at sticking to the plan this week. Tuesday we had a major project that needed to be completed and hubby decided we would order out if need be. This was probably a good thing as otherwise I would not likely have gotten the project completed. We used a bit of extra cash he'd earned to pay for Chinese take-out, and as it usually does, this lasted us through several meals. There were also a few schedule changes during the week, so in general things got shifted around a good bit. The roasted chicken didn't happen at all so it's back on the plan for this week.

Here's what's on the plan this week:

B - Cereal, leftover banana baked oatmeal
D - Mac & Cheese, Hotdogs

B - Pancakes & fruit
D - Spaghetti

B - Egg & Cheese English Muffins
D - Lemon-Pepper Chicken Breasts in Crockpot

B - Waffles (if I get them made on Tuesday's baking day)
D - Go To Chicken Casserole

B - Grits, muffins, fruit
D - Leftovers

B - Apple & Raisin French Toast Casserole
D - TBD, special event so we may be eating out

B - probably this Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake
D - Roasted Chicken (heldover from last week because I forgot to thaw it out!)

Lunches:  Lots of leftovers, spaghetti, PBJs, turkey and cheese sandwiches, blueberry applesauce, applesauce, pineapple chunks

Side Dishes will include: canned green beans, glazed carrots, Asian spinach, canned peaches, corn, cantaloupe, peas

Coming Up this Week: I'm planning a day in the kitchen doing some Bake Ahead/Make Ahead. On the plan so far are waffles, hot chocolate mix (which hubby's been begging for), no rise cinnamon rolls and a whole lotta applesauce - blueberry and all natural. You might want to check in later in the week to see how it went.

My husband love Chinese Take Out. I try to make it at home but it's not the same as take out.
Looks like a tasty week at your house. I love homemade waffles and those cinnamon rolls sound delicious.
I'll have to stop by next week on MPM day.
