Meal Plan Monday

I try to follow these meal plans. Really, I do. I hate waiting until the last minute, and then scrambling around, trying to figure out what we should eat that night. It causes lots and lots of sandwiches and hot dogs! This week, menu planning should go pretty smoothly, though.

Monday: Mighty Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, creamed corn. It will make a meatloaf convert out of non-meatloaf lovers (like myself). My friend, Angela, originally gave me the recipe, and it's in regular roatation in our house!

Tuesday: take-out (fast food). On Tuesdays, the girls and I (all the kids, if Kevin can't pick Owen up) don't get home until around 6:45, after dance & gymnastics. Unless I'm super on top of things and have something in the crock-pot, we pick something up on our way home. Nine times out of ten, we pick something up! Add to it that this particular Tuesday, I'm going to a Southern Living at Home party that my next-door-neighbor is having, and it's fast food, all the way!

Wednesday: Spaghetti, garlic bread, roasted broccoli

Thursday: Megan's choice! Thursday is Meg's 8th birthday, so she gets to choose a restaurant. Right now, she has it narrowed down to O'Hana Steakhouse (the one I'm hoping she'll choose), Olive Garden & Rosa's.

Friday: Parmesean Crusted Tilapia, roasted asparagus, wild rice

LOVE reading your meal plans...I am trying to cook dinner on the nights when Sutton is home, so I should probably start doing meal plans too, especially when I go back to work! Thanks for the inspiration. Sounds like a yummy week!

So glad you liked the meat loaf! :D I'm going to put that in for maybe next week. We haven't had it since I made it and gave you the recipe. That was like a YEAR ago! I think it's funny we're both having spaghetti and roasted asparagus this week - great minds think alike. I just get burnt out on the same veggies (beans, corn, potatoes, etc) so I picked some up this week.
