Looking for ideas for your weekly menu? Go visit the Menu Plan Monday linkup over at OrgJunkie's webjoint. You're bound to find something yummy for dinner!


Chicken Strips, Sweet Potato Oven Fries (My kids LOVED these last week and I have some sweet potatoes left in my crisper.)


Spaghetti and Meatballs (I'll use jarred sauce + the meatball recipe.)


Chicken and Dumplings
(I can't find the recipe link I usually use; using this recipe, cook/shred about 1 lb chicken drumsticks or thighs and add 1 tsp thyme, 1/3 cup lemon juice, and sauteed onions, carrots, and celery {about 1/2 cup of each} -- ever so yummy!)


Minnesota Pork Chops with rice and veggies


Pizza with Bread Machne Pizza Dough and this copycat recipe of LaRosa's Pizza Sauce (If you've ever eaten LaRosa's pizza in Cincinnati, you KNOW how good that sauce is!)


Free night (we have a parish dinner we're attending after 5:30 Mass)


Birthday party for my soon-to-be three year old!

Assuming success on Friday, I'll make more pizza with the copycat recipe of LaRosa's Pizza Sauce, along with cake and party snacks.


I've posted the grocery list needed for this menu plan as a GoogleDoc; find it here. You should be able to print it right from your browser.

If you see that I missed any ingredients, please drop a comment or email me; I'll revise the document as soon as possible.

Be sure to come back tomorrow, Tuesday, January 20, 2009, for my weekly feature Let's Go Krogering. I'll show you the deals + coupon matchups I found for my menu plan at my local Kroger so you can get 'em, too!
