Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of August 23rd

So, it's Monday already?  Really?  I have no idea where the last week has gone!  It's all a total blur!

Grace has been super-cranky all week.  She's teething.  Need I say more?  I'm sure all you moms out there can totally relate. 

Thank goodness for leftovers!  Seriously!  We had tons of leftovers from the week before and two of the meals I made this week saved me from cooking a few nights. 

Normally, I like to freeze my leftovers for meals later in the month.  But right now, I'm just using them up. 

This week, I'll be trying some new recipes.  Hopefully, they will turn out so that I can share them here.  I'm not against posting new recipes if they don't turn out, but these days, I've been having a tough time posting in general, so I'd rather use my computer time to post successful recipes!  Eventually, I'll get around to sharing my flops!!! 

I am hoping to get the time to post a recipe I tried a few weeks ago.  Huge success!  For now, I'll just tease you with a photo:
Also, this week, I'll be sharing another product review.  If you love learning about new products like I do, be sure to check back this week!  If you missed last week's product review, you can check it out here:  healthy snack, perfect for back to school!  

Okay, so on to the menu plan....that's what you're really here for, right? 

  • Monday:  salmon burgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, fried potatoes
  • Tuesday:  hamburger gravy with elbow macaroni, veggies
  • Wednesday:  meatloaf, mashed potatoes, veggies
  • Thursday:  black bean & sweet potato chili
  • Friday:  chicken, vegetable risotto, salad
  • Saturday:  leftovers
  • Sunday:  leftovers
I'm hoping to do some freezer cooking this week.  Over the weekend, I bought several bags of dried beans that I want to cook and freeze since we're starting to run low on beans.  We're completely out of cooked, diced chicken.  Luckily for me, Acme is having a sale on bone-in chicken breast.  If I still have time after all of that cooking, I might just make some spaghetti sauce.

Now that I read my plan for the week, I'm thinking this might actually be a 2 week plan!  That's a lot of cooking!  We'll see what I can get done this week.  Check back during the week to see how it's going!

I'm linking this post up to Menu Plan Monday, a weekly Menu Planning carnival hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie.  Check it out if you need to be inspired!

I am right there with you in the teething battle. My youngest is 17 months, and we have molars (MOLARS! in my baby!) coming in. Ugh. It has NOT been pretty.
