Menu Plan Monday~ 8/20/12



School starts in 2 weeks so I can consider it Fall right? Ok maybe not with our 100 degree days...

I'm 37 weeks pregnant with our 4th baby and thankfully started Maternity Leave last week. After a year and a half of working fulltime on the evening shift, I am super excited to be able to cook dinner for my family and spend evenings with them. It's even better that I'm off during my favorite season (Fall obviously...). I can't wait to try a bunch of new recipes!

Jason started a new job last week and doesn't always get home in time for dinner.I'm trying to make sure whatever I make for dinner has plenty leftover that tastes good warmed up when he gets home.

Pinterest is awesome and I've been letting the girls pick a recipe that looks good for dinner the next week. Hannah's pick this week was: Creamy White Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna. We substitiuted canned diced tomatoes for the sundried (much cheaper!) and added extra milk since we had no-boil noodles. It was so yummy! Hannah and I aren't fans of tomatoes and the diced were pretty big chunks. I think we'll use crushed next time...and we definately will make it again!

Here's this week's menu (trying to keep it easy in case I go into labor or something...)!

Monday 8/20- Hamburgers, Mac & Cheese, Corn

Tuesday 8/21- Avery's Pinterest Pick: Crispy Chicken with Creamy Italian Sauce and Bowtie Pasta

Wednesday 8/22- Make Your Own Frenchbread Pizza (pepperoni,sausage, pinapple, olives, ham etc)

Thursday 8/23- Pancakes, Eggs, Sausage or Bacon, Fruit

Friday 8/24- (Girls at Nana's) Takeout

Saturday 8/25- (Girls at Nana's) Steak and Mushroom Fajitas, Salad

Sunday 8/26- Lemon Galic Tilapia, Rice Pilaf, Green Beans
