menu plan monday {jan. 7}

So it's Monday again and it's back to the grind.  Grocery shoppin' and menu plannin'.  Had to rearrange my normal grocery shopping routine and got groceries straight after church yesterday.  I had a love/hate relationship with it.  I loved that I could do it while Tyler took the boys home for naps. It was nice to actually have all my attention focused on my list BUT it was the weekend and grocery shopping.  Don, don, don.  They don't go well together.  I'm so blessed that I have the opportunity to stay home with my boys.  Seriously, very fortunate.  And one of those perks is that I can, if I want to, go grocery shopping during the week at 10am when there is hardly anyone in the store and no lines.  IT ROCKS.  Not gonna lie.  Even though I still despise grocery shopping to it's core, it makes it a little more bearable for me to not have to fight crowds.

Well anyways....back to my menu!  Trying 3 new dishes this week and I'm super excited!  I'll let you all know how they turn out ;)  We tried two new dishes last week, the Spinach Lasagna and Chicken Taco Soup.  Both were good.  I think Tyler leaned a little more towards the soup but Caedmon REALLY like the Spinach Lasagna, I think he ate more that the rest of us combined (I wish I was kidding!)  I froze a batch of the soup but wasn't able to make more of the lasagna for the freezer because I ran out of time.  My goal is the double one meal a week and throw the extra in the freezer to stock up our freezer a little more.  We'll see how that goes.

Our menu this week...

One Pot Pasta
Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne

A little different twist on normal pizza night from ma friend Melinda!

Ummmm not sure yet.  It's the first Life Group at our house so it's gotta be somethin' fabulous of course.  Oh and if you are in the area and want to come join us on Sunday late afternoon's for yummy snacky food and digging into a "yet to be determined" bible study, shoot me an email!

  1. We do the pizza rolls at least once every other week! My kid who eats no meat or nothing red will actually eat them!!
