Menu Plan Monday

I am gonna start next week adding some new recipes to our meals that we rotate. I keep finding so many things I wanna try!

Here is our week:

Monday: Hubby cooking - no idea what he is planning ;)

Tuesday: Turkey Rice soup, Rolls

Wednesday: Pizza, salad (I could do without pizza every week, but my family would strongly disagree) This week we are making homemade, maybe we'll make a heart shaped pizza??

Thursday: Meatball stroganoff, green beans

Friday: Smoked sausage, rice, mixed veggies

Saturday: mom & Dad are going out on a date:) Chicken nuggets, Fries and Corn for kiddos.

Sunday: Whole chicken, mashed potatoes

Dessert for the week: Grandmas butter cookies! We made a big batch of them and the kids helped me cut them out in heart shapes. yummy:)

I know I didn't write out the cost for each meal like I did last week, didn't have as much free time.
The meatball stroganoff is a new recipe this week. We make stroganoff sometimes with ground beef, sometimes with steak. The kids aren't always crazy about ground beef in casseroles, so here is a new take on it that I think sounds more fun.

Meatball Stroganoff:
1 sm onion
1 10.5 oz can beef gravy
1 14 oz can beef broth
4-5 meatballs per person
1 sm can mushrooms
8oz pasta
4 oz sour cream
Fry onion in butter for 2 min. Add beef gravy, beef broth, meatballs, mushrooms, and bring to a boil. When mixture is at full boil, add pasta and cook until pasta is tender. Add sour cream right before serving.

Have a blessed week!

We had pizza twice since friday already LOL.
Friday night last week we did the home made pizza and home made garlic bread with cheese and then lastnight in a rush between all the running and PM church I tossed in a frozen pizza for me and the girls before church and little Man at leftover meatlofe and corn(he loves that more then pizza LOL) So this week on my menu, well the next 5 days I don't have pizza on it. BUT like you if the family didn't get it once a week they would go nuts on me. Great MPM. Have fun on your date Friday.

The stoganoff sounds good, I always buy those bags of meatballs at Sams Club and try to find interesting ways to use them up. I have found that I love them in crock pot stew & then the old standbys like spaghetti and meatballs subs...
Have a great Monday.

Your menu looks great this week. I could do without pizza, too, because it is one of my least favorite foods, but my family would not be happy.

I hope you have a great week!
