What's For Dinner This Week...

Last week went pretty well. We finally tried the Tomato Soup (thanks to, Amy!) but I had to substitute a couple of things - it was great anyway! I'll definitely make it again. Instead of bean burritos, I decided to try making my own version of Mexican Lasagna - it was a hit! I added the recipe to my recipe blog. I also made up an Egg & Potato Scramble which we all liked. I enjoyed cooking this week and felt more inspired than I have for awhile - hopefully it will continue. :)

My sister and brother-in-law are living with us for the next couple of weeks while waiting to sign the lease on their new apartment so we will enjoy having them here and we will be making more food. :) Here's the plan for this week:

MONDAY - Chicken Noodle Soup, Applesauce, Fresh Bread
TUESDAY - Chicken & Broccoli Stir fry, Brown Rice, & Baked Wontons w/this filling
WEDNESDAY - Tacos, Corn, Coleslaw
THURSDAY - Meatloaf, Garlic Red-Skin Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Apple Cinnamon Muffins
FRIDAY - Pizza, Chips, Grapes, Veggies & Dip (for the kids & sitter the rest of us will be out!)
SATURDAY - Leftover or whatever meal doesn't happen :)
SUNDAY - Breakfast Bowls (this topped w/ this minus the ham & sausage gravy)

Check out for more menu plans! Have a wonderful week!

Thanks so much for sharing. Your menu looks awesome. I'm definitely going to try that wonton filling. We really like those around here, especially my husband and I as "date night" food while watching a movie. Also, your breakfast bowls sound so good. That is pure comfort food to me!

The breakfast bowl sounds yummy! We do a breakfast for dinner once a week, so I'll have to try that out one of these times.
