Menu Planning, Week of 11/11

We've come to a realization--when the husband is away for a couple of days, restaurants or easy meals are a nice respite.  However, it may not be possible, for financial and health reasons, to spend 9 months eating restaurant food, mac and cheese or sandwiches.  So menu planning it is.

Thankfully, I'm feeding an 8 year old and 11 year old, so I can at least justify cooking a fair amount of food.  Add in homeschooling and the leftovers can easily be repurposed for lunches.  And, since they are 8 and 11, they are forced to participate in the planning part of the meals.  I'll cook for them, just don't make me think of all of the meals!

Friday - Beefy queso and chips (I double the beef so we can use this as an entree)

Saturday - Tomato garlic basil chicken (already marinated in the freezer), stuffing, peas

Sunday - Taco stuffed baked potatoes

Monday - leftovers (besides all the chicken, there is fried rice from last week)

Tuesday - Jambalaya

Wednesday - Lasagna with garlic bread

Thursday - Pork chops with cream sauce, rice, maple carrots

Friday - Pizza night
