Menu Plan Monday

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I have been totally unmotivated at blogging. I hope to do better at it in the days to come because I do have a lot I'd like to share. But for now, it's menu time! I've got to get back to making and planning menus. Our budget and my waistline is in desperate need of menu planning! So, here's the next two weeks meals.

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops & Stir Fry Veggies (crock pot), Brown Rice

BBQ Sandwiches, Baked Beans, Salad

Roast Chicken, Green Beans, Roasted Potatoes

Cinnamon Wheat Waffles, Scrambled Eggs w/ sausage, Orange Slices

BBQ Ribs, Potato Salad, Corn

Chili & fixin's

Chicken Tortilla Soup (Crock Pot)

Pasta with Sausage Tomato Sauce, Salad

Pork and Potato Hash, Apple Cranberry Salad

If I can find steel cut oats and oat bran this week I'm going to make this baked oatmeal instead of the waffles. They didn't have any at WalMart. They didn't even have regular oatmeal, only the qiock/instant kind. Kelly gave me the recipe through twitter and it looks really yummy!

I planned 8 meals and there will be a few leftover nights and sandwich nights.

And since it took me forever to get this up today, I made the sweet and sour pork chops tonight. It was a new recipe and the virdict: Eh. Not so good. I ate it. Eli took one bite and spit it out. Of course Luke would would have pitched a fit if I would have even put it in front of him. I won't be making it again. The Hubs is in class so I'll be making him a ham sandwich when he gets home.
