Last week's menu plan went much better. We stuck to the plan almost every night (salisbury steaks turned into meatballs), and it made supper time much easier. That time of night can get crazy (and it's when my childless brother ALWAYS calls...then he wonders why I don't answer), so it's nice to have at least one decision made for me.
Friday: burritos with ground beef, rice, spinach, and poblanos
Sunday: chicken noodle soup (lunch), chilaquiles (supper)
Monday: slow roasted pork butt, pickled beets, macaroni and cheese, slaw
Tuesday: Memphis tacos (barbecue pulled pork, slaw in a flour tortilla), turnips, pinto beans
Wednesday: mu shu chicken (will put this recipe up as soon as I make it)
Thursday: red rice with turkey and black beans, roasted tomato salsa
This week, I'm also going to do a little holiday baking. I'm planning amaretto meringues, sugar cookies, and peanut butter cookies. I'll probably make brownies, too. I want to have a lot of variety this year, and I'd love to have enough to gift some of our neighbors.
I hope Christmas is in full swing at your house, too! For more menu ideas, check out orgjunkie's Menu Plan Monday.
