Menu Plan Monday 2013 ~ Week of October 14th

I don't know about you, but I can never seem to get anything done on Mondays.  This includes getting my menu plan posted for the week.  It's not that I'm unprepared.  Honest!  Usually, by Thursday or Friday I'm already contemplating the following week's menu.  It's just finding the time to post it before Monday rolls around that seems the most challenging. 

Some Mondays it's just Grace and I at home.  Some Mondays Joe is home too.  Either way, I never seem to have the time or energy to get my menu posted.  Yesterday was no different.  Errands in the morning and a massive headache in the afternoon (not to mention the hubby that was hogging the computer) kept me from blogging.  Oh, and that headache knocked me out for a few hours!  With Grace playing nicely in her bedroom and Joe keeping an eye on her while catching up on some computer time, I decided to sit down to watch some daytime TV (something I rarely get to do) before starting dinner.  With the afternoon sun pouring through our big living room window, I dozed off for THREE HOURS!  

When I woke up, I was in a fog.  I felt as if I had taken a night time pain reliever and couldn't shake the sleepiness!  Thanks to a late lunch, no one was interested in dinner!  

Here's what's on the menu for the rest of the week!  


Spaghetti with Crock Pot Meat Sauce 
Toasted Ravioli 
Rhodes White Bread
Tonight's dinner is an easy one.
I picked up a box of frozen toasted ravioli
since I've really been wanting my favorite
Olive Garden appetizer.
I'll serve half the box tonight
and save the other half for later in the week!


Taco Pizza 
Last week, I made a taco pizza for the first time.
We enjoyed it so much that we're having it again this week!


Polish Cabbage Noodles 
I picked up a huge head of cabbage
at the local market on Monday
making me think of this dish right away!
I'll probably make cabbage stir fry
for lunches this week, too!


Spaghetti Bread
Toasted Ravioli 
I've really been in the mood for take-out
but it just hasn't fit into our budget in a few months.
This meal should help kill the cravings for a little while!


Potato Soup
Leftover mashed potatoes (from the freezer)
 will be perfect for this comforting soup!
Especially after a busy day of fun with Grace!
I'm thinking maybe a Halloween parade
and a walk in the park if the weather is nice!


Leftover Potato Soup 
Corn Fritters
A local restaurant serves corn fritters at their breakfast buffet.
The buffet is a bit pricey, so we don't go very often.
This week, I'll be looking for a recipe for corn fritters
and see how they match up to the ones I pile on my plate at the restaurant.
