Menu Plan Monday

Although I didn't follow my plan last week, we didn't end up going out, ordering in or wasting anything. I have a package of mushrooms in my fridge that need a meal and will probably end up going into the trash, but not terrible. We used to be REALLY bad about going out and wasting food, so we're still a work in progress. By the way, I no longer allow many leftovers. I deliberately cook less food so that we don't have leftovers- my husband just doesn't eat them, and there's only so much that I can eat for lunch. So here's our week:

  • Monday: Tortellini, Garlic Bread from the bread maker and green salad
  • Tuesday: Meatloaf (with ground turkey- don't tell my husband!), mashed potatoes and cooked carrots and dinner rolls
  • Wednesday: Bacon and Swiss Frittata (still trying to use those eggs!), asparagus and toast
  • Thursday: Swedish meatballs, egg noodles and peas
  • Friday: BBQ Chicken Sandwiches from the crock pot, baked beans and corn

Hopefully this week will be better than the last! Happy Monday!


  1. love the ground turkey in your meatloaf. I also put shredded veggies in mine, carrots and peppers - they add moisture and my family can never tell!

    Happy Menu Plan Monday!

  2. I love any opportunity to use my breadmaker! Can't wait to try the Garlic Bread.
