MPM: Continuing on

I think I can, I think I can.....

Monday: Chicken Sandwiches and Macaroni and Cheese
Tuesday: Leftover enchiladas from Mothers' Day
Wednesday: Pasta casserole... something soft so Mike can eat it (he's having cavity work done in the afternoon). Jello for dessert.
Thursday: Possible movie night with a "snacky" dinner... popcorn chicken, dips & veggies, etc.
Friday: Pizza night!
Saturday: Leftovers or stirfry.
Sunday: Concert day! We probably won't need to eat dinner after we have a filling reception, but I will have to make a dessert to bring.

MPM: Back on the bandwagon

Oops! I haven't formally menu planned since March! No wonder I have no idea what is in the freezer and I can't remember what we ate last week. This is not a great trend to start, so this is me trying to jump back on the bandwagon....

A lot of activities this week to plan around, so let's see what I can come up with.

Monday: We have some place to be at 6:30, so a quick dinner of hamburgers or chicken patty sandwiches will work. I've got some rice in the freezer to heat up for a quick and easy side dish.

Another quick dinner night. I need to be at a meeting at 7 and Mike doesn't get home from work until 6:30! Something's gotta give. An easy-peasy meal that can be easily reheated? Ravioli with meat sauce or meatballs I'll decide when I'm making it since I've got both ready to go.

Happy Cinco De Mayo! We'll have Pulled Pork "Carnitas" which I will make in the crockpot. I'll be using a variation of this recipe (no beer), so I have to add a few things to my grocery list!

Going to my parents' house for dinner since my grandparents & aunt are in town.

Friday: It's pizza night! Hopefully I can make one and freeze the other (as we are getting ready for a big pizza party in a few weeks). A salad is a nice compliment to pizza.

My sister's graduation! If there are any meals at home, they will be leftovers.

Sunday: Mothers' Day! I've invited my family over for dinner, and we'll be having enchiladas (chicken, re-fried beans and possibly leftover pork will serve as the filling) which I will put together on Friday or Saturday and have Mike put in the oven while we are at church.
