I found this site today and was truly amazed by the amount of participants for Menu Plan Monday hosted by I’m an Organizing Junkie. My hubby always tells me I’m the only one he knows who makes lists and lists of the lists to keep track of all the lists. For years I have planned the menus around the calender because of budget constraints. If a recipe calls for half an onion on Monday’s meal, you know I planned a meal on Tuesday that used the other half! Anyway, I’m so happy to see there are so many more of ‘me’ out there that are compulsive organizers. I already do Favorite Ingredient Friday hosted by Overwhelmed with Joy, so this will make a great addition to help keep me on track and hopefully I’ll find some great new recipes! I also found another challenge 5 Night Dinner Challenge over at Sommer Designs that coordinates well here.

So here goes:
Monday: Pulled Beef Sandwiches & Coleslaw
Tuesday: Sauteed Chicken & Onions, Big Salad – hubby just nixed this one and requested Chicken Cacciatore instead – at least they both take the same chicken and onions
Wednesday: Meatloaf & Twice Baked Potatoes
Thursday: Crunchy Chicken Bake, steamed Broccoli
Friday: Shrimp Pasta & Salad – hubby is putting a BIG kink in my menu this week ~ he drank the rest of the white wine I needed for this recipe so now we’re having spicy tuna noodle casserole
Saturday: Pork & Noodles, Cucumber & Tomato salad
Sunday: Beef Stew in Sourdough Bread Bowls

It’ll take me awhile to get caught up with posting recipes as I like to do those with pictures, but will make a concentrated effort this week to make that happen.


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on my quilting post! I’ve looked around your blog and I’ll definitely be coming back. It looks like you and I have a lot in common.

Thanks again!
