Meal plan Monday!

Sharing is caring!

Ok, all! This is it! This is the week! The week this mama will only have to put in 2 actual days of Home Manager! Nope, I don’t have to cook Thanksgiving dinner….we played that role about 2 weeks ago and JUST finished all of the turkey. All I have to do this week is cook the first 2 days and pretty much relax the rest of the week. I love the holidays, don’t you? I’m making the fried chicken so we can have the leftovers in the car on our way to Ohio. Once we get there, we will be fed and stuffed like piggies. *sigh* I can’t wait to gain 10 pounds. So, here’s the skinny, my lovelies….

Monday: beef lo mein(like the asian spaghetti and meatballs, but with sliced beef)
Tuesday: my famous fried chicken with mixed veggies and rice w/gravy
Wednesday: Gone Baby Gone
Thursday: Happy Happy Turkey Day!
Friday: Gone with the Wind
Saturday: Back with a vengeance! Gonna have baked pasta tonight. Thank goodness I made sauce before we left!
Sunday: We’re eating out! Using up DH’s birthday coupon at our favorite restaurant. I love vacations!

    I love your meal plans- I’m trying to do better -and find some room in my freezer. One of my “easy cheapie” recipes is just a can of baked beans, a layer of hot dog slices, and corn bread mix (the martha white bag type) cooked according to the corn bread temp & time.
