Menu Plan Monday...


In case you missed it last week, be sure to check here for the results from my October Challenge!!

Not much new going on here this week. Both boys and hubby are sick with colds. So far I haven't got it...knocking on wood and crossing my fingers ;-).
We did get a couple of projects done around here over the weekend and I have a pile of stuff to donate and another to put in storage. That feels good. The best thing is that I reclaimed (or I should probably say claimed) my coat closet. It had been a catch all since we moved in and I got it all organized over the weekend....just in time to hang some coats in it for the cold weather. YAY me!!
*=new recipe

  • Sunday--leftovers
  • Monday--Southwest pork roast, rice pilaf, peas/carrots
  • Tuesday--coconut chicken (we've had this before and LOVE it!!), Jasmine rice, steamed veggies
  • Wednesday--meatballs stroganoff with noodles, corn, green beans
  • Thursday--homemade corn dogs* and roasted potatoes
  • Friday--oven fried chimis *(I'll use some leftover shredded beef from the freezer), Spanish rice, refried beans
  • Saturday--leftovers



For more menu plan Monday fun, head on over to Laura's at I'm an Organizing Junkie!

Here's the link to my sweet pork recipe...well, not mine, but my post. LOL! Sweet Pork. We initially used this for burritos, but it made a lot so we froze some that we'll use this week and we also used the leftover in nachos by putting the pork on tortilla chips then topping with cheese, salsa, sour cream. :)

What a great idea to make those corn dogs, I don't know WHY but I've never tho't of that! I know they've got to be much better than the nasty-for-ya store ones lol.

Great plan, thanks for sharing :)

I had a home made corn dog recipe when my children were YOUNG that called for malt o meal......did you know if you grab chocolate malt o meal instead of regular your corn dogs taste awful! (Even the kids wouldn't eat the chocolate corn dogs :) - go figure)

let us know if you like the recipe - I may give it another shot.
