Menu Plan Monday

Keeping up on all my domestic goddess duties is slipping behind. I've yet to make any recent cookie batches or snacks, my house is trashed and all I feel like doing is reading and sleeping. I'm so tired of this cold, cold, crappy winter. I'm ready for some motivation to come with some warmer weather!! And can you believe that January is just about over already?? 2010 is moving by too damn quick!!

Recipes are below!!

Sunday: Hot Dogs & Veggies

Monday: Reuben Sandwich Casserole (carryover)

Tuesday: Orange Chicken (carryover)

Wednesday: Company Chicken Casserole

Thursday: Spaghetti Frittata

Friday: Italian Smothered Steak (carryover)

Saturday: Bacon & Veggie Skillet

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!!
