Menu Plan Monday ~ Week of November 15th

I can't believe that Monday is here already!  Last week crawled by so slowly, yet the weekend was gone in a blink of an eye! We had a pretty uneventful weekend. 

We ran a few errands on Saturday then came home and we all took naps!  I really should have cleaned the kitchen while Grace was napping, but after seeing that Joe and the dog were also napping, I just couldn't resist grabbing a blanket and taking a snooze on the couch!  On Sunday, Joe went out to do guy stuff and Grace and I had a nice visit from a friend. 

Not our normal, crazy-busy weekend, but that was just fine with us. 

Today is the last day to enter my Vitalicious Vitatops Super Sampler Giveaway and it's also the last day to enter my Butch's Smack Your Lips BBQ Giveaway.  Those giveaways close at 10:00 EST tonight, so if you haven't already...hurry and enter!  Don't forget about the Young Plantations giveaway too...since I'm mentioning my giveaways! 

This week also closes the voting portion of the Sears KitchenAid Rescue My Appliances contest.  I would love it if you would vote for my kitchen.  Each time you vote, you're entered for a chance to win a KitchenAid Mixer!  As you can see from the photo, I really need some new appliances!  Please, help me out and vote!  If you want to see close up photos of my old appliances, click here for a tour!

Last week, I did really well in following my menu plan.  I may have switched up the days a bit, but pretty much stuck to the meals for 6 out of the 7 days.  I STILL didn't get around to making that potato soup, so that will be making another appearance in this week's menu! 

Instead of getting takeout or fast food on Saturday, we picked up a tomato pie from the grocery store.  Some of Joe's family is from Norristown and there is a place there that makes THE BEST tomato pie!  Occasionally, our grocery store will get in a bunch of fresh pies on the weekend.  We stopped in the store on our way home from Target on Saturday to pick up some milk and dogfood and saw the stack of tomato pies and couldn't resist!  Ended up being cheaper than if we went to Sonic or McDonald's.  Plus, there was some leftover so Joe took that with him for lunch today.

As I type this, I'm still not sure what I WANT to eat this week for dinners.  I'm in a weird food mood.  I don't want our usual stuff, but I'm not feeling ambitious enough to actually want to try a new recipe. 

Here's what I have planned so far: 
  • Monday:  Chicken Casserole or open-face hot chicken sandwiches
  • Tuesday:  Veggie Stir Fry (for product review)
  • Wednesday:  French Toast, sausage
  • Thursday:  Potato Soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
  • Friday:  Leftovers
  • Saturday:  fried chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetable
  • Sunday:  take-out
I'm surprised that I was able to come up with something for every day.  Well, I guess the night for take-out doesn't really count, but I have a feeling we'll be running lots of errands on Sunday.  If we manage to get them finished at another time, then I'll come up with a nice Sunday dinner.  Maybe a new recipe. 

I think I'm going to check out all the great menus posted over at I'm an Organizing Junkie's weekly Menu Plan Monday for some inspiration for next week.  I think you should too!
