Meal Plan Monday

I really am getting back into the swing of things. We followed our menu (mostly) last week, and here I am, with 2 menu plans in 2 weeks. Woohoo! In this season of life with three littles, life is uncertain. And as anyone with little children can tell you, they lose their flipping minds around 4:30 every afternoon.

But, hey... at least I know what's for supper in the midst of the craziness.

As an aside. My boys love rice. They would eat it for every meal. So, sometimes, I cater to that frequently in a week when I want to make sure that there is something they'll eat at every meal. And, yes, we like Mexican food. A lot. No, we are not Hispanic. But, we live in a heavily Hispanic area of the country, so the ingredients are plentiful and tasty, and well, who doesn't love some Mexican food? (barring my friend Dawn's husband, of course)

Friday-- fried chicken tacos (similar to Taqueria del Sol) , spanish rice, salad

Saturday-- out (lunch), barbecue shrimp, salad, bread (supper)

Sunday-- hamburger steaks, mashed potatoes, lady peas

Monday-- knockwurst and sauerkraut, applesauce

Tuesday-- puerco adovado (marinated, grilled pork), salad

Wednesday-- enchiladas, salad, calabacitas (squash with corn and green chiles)

Thursday-- Spanish rice with ground beef, green beans

And, as always, orgjunkie hosts the largest menu plan gathering of all. Meal Plan Monday is the place to find lots of new ideas and inspiration.
