Menu Plan Monday - November 3

It's Sunday and I'm posting my menu! I'm on top of things this week. Haha.. not really. It's just that my menu from last week is basically being rolled over to this week!

We visited friends who had a new baby on Monday and then spent the night with my parents Thursday and Friday night. So I only cooked the chicken and made tuna sandwiches from last weeks menu! You would think that I saved on my grocery bill, but I didn't! So, for this week:

BBQ Pork Chops (grill or oven), Corn on the Cobb, Baked Sweet Potatoes (if they still look good... otherwise some other veggie from the freezer)

Lima Bean Soup, Corn Bread

Pot Roast (on sale this week) w/ Carrots and Potatoes

Beef Soft Tacos (using leftover roast meat with taco seasoning) w/ Beans and Rice

Pork Ribs (thinking about using the crock pot again), Green Beans, Potato Salad

A few new dairy free products I picked up this week:

100 Calorie Pack Oreo Thin Crisps (Yay, for something chocolate!)
Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars- Maple and Brown Sugar
Lipton Soup Mix - Onion & Onion Mushroom

I also love Amy's Dairy Free Rice and Bean Burrito, but they are kind of pricey! So, aside from the occasional splurge, I'm just going to start making my own!

Since the weather's getting cooler, I'm starting to think about soups and chili's! So, I though I'd share with you BooMama's Souptacular Crockpotalooza. I missed the actual 'event' but I've been looking through all of the links for good soup ideas! And just because I love you so much, I thought I'd share it with you!

Ok, gotta get busy on some things!

Crystal, has a great vegan cupcake recipe. You should check it out. I've made them before (because I wanted cupcakes on a day I had no eggs!) and they are SO good! You'd never be able to tell the difference.
