Menu Planning Monday

When I have more time, I'll figure out how to use that fancy Mr. Linky to hook up with Organizing Junkie's Menu Planning Monday list. Those ladies have such amazing ideas - it really helps inspire me to see what other busy moms are making for dinner. It also helps me to realize that it isn't really feasible at this stage in mine (or my children's) lives to be making a menu full of unusually unique, time-consuming recipes.

So here is our busy week -

Monday - honey mustard marinated chicken breasts - baked
corn on the cob from this weekend's farmers' market
butternut squash/chopped apple mash - in crockpot right now - yummy!!
butter mashed potatoes

Tuesday - eggplant parm - by request from Joshua
whole wheat rotini pasta
crock-pot pasta sauce

Wednesday - Dinner out!! We are going to our favorite Mom and Pop pizza joint and then heading to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins.

Thursday - grilled Muenster cheese sandwiches on fresh sourdough bread
pickles, tomato slices
dinner salad
vegetarian chili
** free circus tonight at the park at 7:30pm - eat fast!

Friday - BFD!!!! (Breakfast for dinner!)
hashbrowned potatoes with onions and peppers
egg white spinach omlets
chopped fruit (whatever is left in the fruit basket)

Saturday - crescent roll mummied vegetarian hotdogs
dinner salad
pasta salad
desert night: peanutty perfection
** Veggietales program at church 6pm - eat fast!!

Mary, I'm cooking one vegetarian meal per week for my (meat-centric) family and I have to say I'll be bumming a few of your ideas!

I am seeing a lot of BFDs around MPM. I need to do that some time. I just never think of it! :) Thanks for your comments on my blog.
