Menu Plan Monday & Weekend Venting

I did do a menu this week.  In fact, I planned out the whole month of March!  I got the idea from my friend, Christine.  She got the idea from somewhere in the blogosphere.  I had a printout to use from my Organizing Life as Mom ebook.  So, I was good to go.  One thing that I really liked about it was that I was able to kind of use stuff I already had for this week and then buy what was on sale this week for weeks to come.  For example, whole roasting chickens were buy-one-get-one this I bought 4 to use for recipes coming up and froze them!

Anyway - here is this week's menu:

Monday - Pasta in Olive Oil and Garlic w/Salad and Garlic Bread (book club ladies may want to sit at the other end of the table tonight!)

Tuesday - Pork Stir-Fry

Wednesday - Layered Mexican Chicken

Thursday - Nana's or Leftovers

Friday - Ham and Cheese Supper (in the slow cooker . . . this is a new one from my slow cooker cookbook) 

Saturday - Disney Princesses on Ice - so... we will probably be ordering something with my parents for dinner.

Sunday - Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes (or maybe twice baked if the kids cooperate!)

There you have it.

In other news - the boys are sick.  Danika is coughing.  No one is sleeping.  Everyone seems to be crying or at least someone is always crying.  It's been a rough weekend.  I'm so ready for spring.
