Menu Plan Monday

I'm feeling a bit of the crazy-time-creep. Things that are normally under control are becoming uncontrollable. And writing this menu plan out will make the week feel a little less hectic.

Monday: Tonight will be leftovers from last week: Baked Ziti. I might pull out a frozen veggie, too. Probably green beans. And garlic toast, or course. yum. Then off to choir rehearsal.

Tuesday: I'm going to leave the cooking to the man of the house. Hamburgers and french fries. Then we will watch the premiere of V!

Wednesday: Pumpkin Penne Pasta with some cooked chicken thrown in for good measure. Also, bread in the bread machine and creamed spinach. My family is coming over for dinner, so hopefully they'll like it!

Thursday: Enchiladas again. I really liked the filling for these and the sauce is really good. Now if I only had a moment to make my own tortillas....

Friday: Now I can't remember if Mike is working late or not, but if not, I'll be making pizza, calzones, or stromboli with this recipe.

Saturday/Sunday: I have had a hankering for chili for a while now and with the sales on canned tomatoes, I have to use up my stash from last year. So, I'll definitely make a huge pot of chili over the weekend. We'll be able to use the leftovers in different forms over the next week. (Tacos, taco salad, chili mac & cheese, and whatever I think of!) I'll be using dried beans, so I'll probably start them soaking on Friday or Saturday morning.

Ahhh.. now I feel just a little more organized.
