Menu Plan Monday

I've been a "stalker" of Menu Plan Monday for quite some time. I've used several recipes found on the sites listed. I'm an Organizing Jumkie is a valuable resource! So now, it is with pleasure that I say to you, I'm coming out of stalker land and am joining in on Menu Plan Monday.
Why, you ask? Well, in an effort to get back into full-fledged menu-planning, keep in line with our budget & our health, as well as stream-line our shopping process, I think that being somewhat accountable to my audience of five, may keep me on the track.

So, without further ado, here is my menu for this week:
Monday Soup Night: White Bean and Ham Soup - this will be great with the last of the Christmas Day leftover Ham!

Tuesday Italian: Real Meatballs and Spaghetti - this was so good the first time I made it. We have some leftover half-cooked meatballs just waiting to be cooked the rest of the way with some fabulous new favorite sauce! Well worth the "more involved" recipe!

Wednesday Chinese/Chicken: Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ Chicken

Thursday Mexican/Leftovers: Leftovers (I know, really creative for New Year's Day!)

Friday Sandwiches: Lunchmeat sandwiches, fruit, cottage cheese (kids) or small green salad (adults)

Saturday - Go with the flow: Sometimes leftovers, sometimes go out to dinner, sometimes whip something up. Try to be out and about, so can't plan Saturdays very well.

This is cross-posted to Moms of Hendersonville and So good, so good you see!


  1. looks like a great week! Welcome to MPM---I want the recipe for the Italian Cream Cheese Chicken!

  2. Welcome to MPM! The Italian Cream Cheese Chicken Recipe sounds delicious. I'm going to try it next week. I tried the link to the real meatballs and spaghetti and it didn't work. Can you post the link? I'd love to see it.

    Thanks and blessings,

  3. I've added the link to the Spaghetti recipe. It is fantastic! Very restaurant quality!

    Note: I just used regular white cooking wine as we don't have wine in the house.

    I also used ground chicken instead of ground veal.

    I made tiny meatballs since I have small children and I liked it much better than making larger ones. They cooked faster and were easier to eat.

  4. Welcome to MPM! Your menu sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Thanks for the link! I will have to try them...sounds very similar to what I do right now.
