Menu Plan Monday

After last week's chaos, and not posting til Thursday this week, I'm all sorts of out of whack!! I've been trying to get back on track with everyday life for days now but its just not working out like I wish it would!!
Recipes are below!!

Monday: Spaghetti Frittata

Tuesday: Crockpot Chicken with Mushrooms

Wedensday: Ham Macaroni & Cheese

Thursday: Bacon and Veggie Skillet

Friday: Hot Dogs, Veggies and Mac Salad

Saturday: Artichoke Chicken

Sunday: Cheeseburger Pasta

Once again, breakfasts are usually cold cereal, oatmeal and sometimes Boug just wants toast and a banana! Lunches usually are leftovers or sandwiches paired with yogurt or fruit generally. My meals are usually a bit heavier in meats and chickens as hub is a butcher and brings so much home for free or next to nothing!! Check out more Menu Plan Monday entries at orgjunkie!! THIS WEEK IT'S AT THE HAPPY HOUSEWIFE!!
