Menu Plan Monday

Here we are, headed into week 3 of 3 of my new rotation system. So far I love it! Hopefully we'll be sticking with it for a while. It certainly is a load off my mind! And I love that I only had to shop once for the meal ingredients, with just extra trips for milk, bread, etc.

I still don't know what I'm going to do about lunches and weekends. I like having the flexibility of moving the meals around to different days and having open days for impromptu plans. But that can backfire and we end up eating cold cereal for supper. Or in tonight's case, ice cream! The boys don't seem to mind, but I don't want to make a habit of it. ;)

At any rate, here is this week's plan:

Monday: Meat loaf (crock pot, of course), mashed potatoes, veggie

: Cheesy chicken & noodles (crock pot), broccoli

: Beef & Bean burritos (found a recipe for this and have no idea where it is. Saved on my computer, hopefully!)

: Spaghetti, green beans

: Breakfast for supper (usually scrambled eggs with either pancakes or waffles)

Do you make any special plans for lunches at home or weekend meals? Please leave a comment and let me know!

I usually do left overs for lunch but the summer calls for BLT! We do a lot of "lunch box food" I might cook an extra dinner type recipe that Jer doesn't eat and eat on that for the week. Homemade pot pie, frozen ravioli, soup and samdwich. Once a week we do Chick fil A.

Could you share your crock pot meatloaf recipe? I sure could use one of those. By the way, I love your blog!

We do a combination of sandwiches, leftovers and sometimes a special salad (pasta salad or tabouli in the summer!) that we eat for lunch. I would love to see your crockpot meatloaf recipe too! :)
