Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of August 30th

Last week was a really good week as far as food goes.  I tried two new recipes, I had my nieces over for a play date and enjoyed a wonderful lunch with them, and visited with a dear friend over buffalo chicken wraps and coffee cake!
As usual, I didn't get to all of the meals on my menu plan from last week.  I already scheduled two days of leftovers, and somehow, we still didn't get to two of the meals! 

I've always cooked too much.  But lately it seems as if we have a lot more leftovers.  I guess I'm eating less since I'm measuring and weighing my portions so I can figure the Weight Watchers points for what I'm eating. 

Hey, that's okay by me!  Eating less, stretching a recipe into several meals.  That all works for me!  I'll be losing weight AND saving money! 

I'm planning an easy menu this week since we've got a lot going on around here in the next few days. 

  • Monday:  leftovers
  • Tuesday:  Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili with cornbread
  • Wednesday:  salmon burgers, macaroni salad, corn on the cob
  • Thursday: Chicken, Risotto, salad
  • Friday:  leftovers
  • Saturday:  (undecided)
  • Sunday:    (undecided)
I'm really looking forward to the Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili. I've been wanting to add some meatless meals to our menus each week.  This is a new recipe and I really hope that it's a keeper! 
I'm a bit behind in posting, but keep checking back for new recipe posts.  Last week, I promised to share the Veggie Fritters recipe that I made a couple of weeks ago.  I finally got to it, here's the link!

As always, I'll be linking this week's menu to Menu Plan Monday hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie!  Be sure to check it out!  You'll be inspired by all the menu plans and recipes shared each week!

I am having a hard time with my meal planning. With my kids back in school they have so much going on it is crazy.
