Menu Plan Monday 2012 ~ Week of July 23rd

I can't believe I skipped menu planning last week.  I was absorbed in de-cluttering the house and never got around to working on my menu plan.  Even this week, I'm later than usual in working on my plan.

I have a few projects that I want to work on as soon as the weather gets a little cooler.  In order to do that, I need to find my craft table under the piles and piles of junk that keep finding their way to my craft space!  Joe keeps reminding me that the junk didn't get there by itself, which I do realize.  Just too often, I have a box or basket of items I just don't know what to do with so I quickly drop it onto my craft table to be dealt with later.  Later is now!  And all that stuff I don't know what to do with is either going into a yard sale pile or being donated.  That will be my focus for the next couple of weeks!

Dinners will have to be simple for the next couple of weeks.  Leftovers, crock pot meals, pre-cooked meals from the freezer will be on the table at meal times until I get myself organized!

  • Bacon, Potato & Egg Skillet.  I diced up some leftover grilled potatoes especially for this meal.  Since we're all out of bacon, I'll dice up some ham to add to this easy breakfast-for-dinner meal!  

  • Spaghetti with Crock Pot Tomato Sauce, Fried Zucchini.  We picked 2 zucchini from the garden over the weekend and another will be ready any day now!  I've got to start using it up!  

  • Spaghetti Squash Casserole.  It's been a while since we've had this meatless meal, so when I saw a bin of spaghetti squash at the grocery store the other day, I just couldn't resist adding one to my cart!  
Fried Zucchini

  • Beef Pot Pie or Beef Vegetable Soup.  Last week, I made Spicy Shredded Beef in the crock pot for the second time.  The first time we made it, it didn't shred and we enjoyed thin slices on club rolls with some horseradish sauce.  Mmm!  This time, I was able to shred the roast and after 3 meals, we still had a little bit left, so I popped it into the freezer.  I figure I'll just add some veggies and a little gravy or broth and make either a pot pie or a soup.  So, we're seeing 4+ meals from one small roast!  

  • Leftovers and sandwiches (or maybe burgers) will round out the rest of the week for us!
