Menu Plan Monday

Menu planning for me can be very frustrating at times. Sigh! Well, I have found this amazing site called supercook. You type in the ingredients that you have on hand and supercook does the rest by searching thousands of recipes to find the one that matches what you have on hand! This is a great resource and soooo easy to use. My menu planning is no longer a daunting task for me. You can check it out here.This is what I will be cooking at my house this week.


Broccoli Salad*

macaroni and cheese

BBQ meatballs


Salsa chicken

corn cassarole


salmon patties

potato soup*

apple sauce


goulash (from last Saturday that didn't get made)

tossed green salad



whole wheat bread ( I make my own)


ridiculously easy crockpot roast

We defend for ourselves on this day!
