Menu Plan Monday ~ 8/25/08

Remember when I had just found out I was pregnant and going through morning sickness? My menus were few and far between.. well, I can tell you that this is probably going to be one of the last menus for a few weeks. I'm definitely not giving it up! I have to stay on budget and I will keep cooking. I just know it's going to take us a few weeks to adjust after Eli gets here.. and he WILL be here in less than 2 weeks! :) We've already been grocery shopping for the week. In an effort to save money we are going to condense our trips. Instead of going to the bank on Thursday or Friday and then grocery shopping on Monday evenings we'll be grocery shopping and going to the bank on Friday mornings. Considering we have to drive 20 miles one way to the grocery store and/or bank, this will help us save on gas. Plus, I'm sure I'm going to need the Hubs to help me out in the coming weeks on grocery days... so it will all work out since his off day is Friday. So, here is our EASY menu:

Pork Chops, Pinto Beans, and Vidalia Corn Muffins (left over from last week)

Honey Garlic Chicken Legs, Green Beans, Wild Rice (Ok, so the recipe is called 'Candied' but I don't like to think I'm eating candied chicken! I've made something similar to this before so I may tweak it a bit but the last time I did drumsticks in the oven they turned out pretty good.)

Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup

Bacon, Scrambled Eggs, Toast and Fruit

Pizza (FROZEN)!!!!!! :-)

I'm so ready for Eli to get here! I'm hoping I can just throw this menu out the window!

I was so hoping that I would come back from San Antonio to find a post about how wonderful your VBAC was, complete with pictures of Eli.


Well, I guess the post and pictures are a little ambitious for just having a baby, but I am so excited for you. Praying that the time flies between now and then...

Congrats on the baby! Hubby and I are getting ready to start trying for #2...we'll see how that goes.
I am definitely going to try the chicken legs recipe...and yeah, "candied" chicken sounds kinda gross :) Good luck with the little one, and remember, you can always use old menus instead of making up new ones!!
