Menu Plan {week of April 8-18}

Continuing on my quest to be a better wife and mommy by honing my skills in the kitchen.  I have discovered a couple of things during my time cooking:

1.  I really like cooking.  It's time in the kitchen, just being by myself (for the most part).  Sometimes, I do have a clingy toddler grabbing at my legs, but I still enjoy it.  It's almost like a stress reliever.  Why on earth did I stop cooking?

2.  Coming up with a menu plan every two weeks has made me realize how few recipes I actually have.  My Pinterest board is surprisingly lacking on recipes I actually want to make for dinner.  Thinking maybe I should invest in actual real-life cookbooks.

3.  Cooking in my kitchen makes me long for the day when we do our fabulous kitchen remodel.  But more on that later....

Menu plan!

Monday--Roast beef/ham and cheese sandwiches  (I've recently discovered the Pioneer Woman and I'm OBSESSED)
Tuesday--Bible Study.  No dinner
Wednesday--Cheesy Taco Shell Pasta
Thursday--Mini Meatloves and Mashed Potato Cups
Friday--Manicotti
Saturday--Mini Meatball Sandwiches
Sunday--Ranch Chicken
Monday--Ham and pineapple pizza
Tuesday--Relay for Life meeting
Wednesday--Lasagna Roll Ups
Thursday--BBQ chicken sandwiches

I over-plan.  I know that I'm not going to cook every single night.  Things come up, I get tired, whatever.  But whatever I don't use, I can stick in next week's menu plan and use the ingredients I purchased. 

Enjoy your week all :)

I have made several of the Pioneer Woman meals, and they have been a hit. You should try the beef drip sandwhichs. They can be made in a crockpot!

Have you discovered The Pioneer Woman's recipe website? If not, you should! No need to buy cookbooks! http://tastykitchen.com/ This site is my go-to along with my huge Pinterest food board. I work my meal planning and grocery shopping just like this, only I have to do weekly.
