Menu Plan Monday

Last week I completely missed mpm! It's hard to believe how easily you can get into a menu rut! I sat there looking at my week and had no idea what to put on it! Nothing was popping out at me. I just went out and stocked the freezer so I have ample menus I could choose from but do you think I could think of something? Nope, Nada. Zip.. Luckily with Easter being yesterday and having a ham dinner here we have some leftovers that have helped me with this decision this week. Now I am still working on tonight's meal and any suggestions would be welcome! My MIL brought over rolls for yesterday in this big bread bowl.
We didn't eat it and I thought maybe I would put like a pot pie or something in it. But I don't want it to get soggy. I am gonna peruse some recipe options and see if I can come up with something. It was a pretty bread display. I'm sure I will find something to do with it.
So that was Monday, here is the rest of our week.
TUESDAY: Ham and 15 bean soup, corn bread twists
WEDNESDAY: Beef Roast with Veggies
THURSDAY: Beef and Noodles, Green beans (leftover beef from roast)
FRIDAY: Spaghetti, meat balls salad and garlic bread
SATURDAY: My stepsons 13th b-day. Dinner out his choice.
SUNDAY: my ss and both sister in laws b-day dinner at Aunt's house.
As far as dessert for the week. I believe it will be cake, cake and more cake!
2 meals I don't have to cook this week! Gotta love that:) Have a blessed week and Happy MPM!

I have no suggestions for the bread basket, but that looks like a good menu for the week.

Love that bread basket! Cake sounds like a good choice to me - I have a strawberry cake mix that seems to be calling my name :)

Happy Birthday wishes to your stepson!
I missed MPM last week too. But we're back!
Your bread basket looks lovely.

I think if you brush some beaten egg over the bread bowl before putting the pot pie in it, it will help the crust not to get soggy.

That is a cool bread bowl. I've never seen anything like that before.
