Meal Plan Monday!

Sharing is caring!

This is going to be week full of food! Well, at least the end of the week will be. We are having friends over for a cookie swap party and I told them that I was going to surprise them with a special dinner. They’re going to be in store for a full southern dinner on Saturday, so I hope they come really hungry(thank goodness this group of friends don’t read my blog yet….the surprise would be ruined!). To add to that, I have to make my cookies for the swap. AND! Sunday is the best football day of the year, and since Hubby is a BIG Steelers fan, it’s going to be like a holiday. We’ll be going over to my parents’ house to watch the big game, so that will be a snack food extravaganza. ALSO, I’m going to start making a “soup of the week” for the remainder of the winter. This helps to bulk up hubby’s lunches and it guarantees that Sonny and I will have a lunch ready for the whole week. Here’s the game plan for this week:

Monday: Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and buttered corn
Tuesday: Chinese Chicken casserole
Wednesday: homemade gnocchi in a vegetable marinara sauce with garlic bread
Thursday: spice rubbed tilapia with collard greens and rice pilaf
Friday: (Homemade)Pizza night!
Saturday: the big get-together! Fried Chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, collard greens, corn casserole and biscuits!
Sunday: Super Bowl, baby! off to eat chili, pizza, hot dogs, chips and salsa!

Bread of the week: Wheat
Dessert of the week: lemon chess pie and chocolate meringue cookies(for cookie swap)
Soup of the week: Slow cooker french onion soup
