Meal Plan Monday

I actually got around to planing our meals on Monday this week! It's the end of the month, ie we are low on food and I've spent the grocery money so it took me a bit longer to plan this week's menu but I managed to create a weeks worth of dinners without eating chicken every night!

Enchilada Rice- I didn't get around to making this last week and we don't have any ground beef so it will be vegetarian enchilada rice.

Panera Bread Tomato Soup- this was also on last week's menu but I didn't make it. The great thing about meal planning is you can be both prepared and flexible! 

Spaghetti- this is quickly becoming my Wednesday night staple as I get home at 5:30 and have to leave for bible study at 6:45 leaving little time to cook. I just pull the sauce from the freezer a few days before and defrost in the fridge. All I have to do is boil water for the pasta, heat the sauce and dinner is ready. 

Oven roasted chicken with okra and couscous

Meatballs from the freezer, veggies and oven fries

David is taking the first part of the dental licensing exam on Saturday which will be followed by a class party with lots of yummy food! I'm working on our Halloween costume to wear to the party.

Brinner, I keep trying to cook on Sunday evening but never seem to have the energy to do so. Plus evening church starts at 6:30 meaning we have to eat very early or very late. Post dinner pancakes or breakfast tacos is becoming the trend since I can whip them up quickly after church.
