Menu Plan Monday

Are you a menu planner?  If so do you plan just dinners like I do or do you plan breakfasts and lunches also?  Breakfast and lunch for my kiddos is pretty boring routine but simple.  Cereal and fruit or yogurt is a regular breakfast for them.  I think they would eat a PB&J or ham sandwich for lunch everyday so I don't plan their lunches either.  Lunch for me is another story!  So I'm looking for some help.... pretty please.

I'm not a sandwich lover ... unless it's Subway's Spicy Italian.  Since a plain old lunchmeat sandwich doesn't compare to that, I struggle with what to eat for lunch. I often eat dinner leftovers but with my growing boys, and their growing appetites, leftovers are becoming a thing of the past.  What do you eat for lunch?  Soon I'll have fresh lettuce and spinach in my garden for salads!

I have 2 dinners planned this week that came from the Picky Palate.  I love her site & recipe index for great new recipes.  The pictures she posts allow me to almost taste the food!  Wednesday night's dinner I've made before and really like. It can be made with as little or as much spice as you want.  For me...the spicier the better! Sunday night's is new to me.....I'll let you know what I think.

Here's what's for dinner this week....

* Monday - Pumpkin Pancakes & Fried Apples
* Tuesday - Chuck Roast, Carrots & Potatoes *Didn't have this last week
* Wednesday - Mini Farfalle Chipotle Chicken Pasta in Fire Roasted Tomato Cream Sauce
* Thursday - Hungarian Goulash & Asparagus  *Making Extra for the freezer
* Friday - Paninis, Veggies & Dip
* Saturday - Homemade Pizza with a few extra boys for Zachary's B-Day!!
* Sunday -New to me!  Creamy Tomato Basil and Italian Sausage Soup & Homemade Bread

Hey Becky! I am glad I came back for a second read today. I lucked out and got the bacon coupons before it expired.
