Looking for ideas for dinner this week? Go visit Orgjunkie's Meal Plan Monday post and skim the links!

March is here, the mud is deep, and the last gasp of the flu has hit my little clan...only this time it was a stomach flu, meaning I still have a well-stocked freezer.

I'm repeating a meal from last week that I didn't make as well as adding in my new Thursday feature Leftover Makeover; come back on Thursday to see what I'm making for dinner that night!

I'll be baking again this week, so I'll link those recipes as well.

What I'm Baking on Monday

Bread Machine Cranberry Bread
(I have half a can of cranberry sauce left to use up so I'll alter the recipe slightly.)

Gingersnap Cookies
I'm out of shortening so I'll try making them with butter...we'll see if they turn out ok!

Here's what we're having this week!


Crockpot Pineapple-Cranberry Pork Loin + Baked Potatoes & Steamed Veggies


Hot Dogs & Brats in Homemade Rolls (a la bread machine!) + Three Bean Salad (a summer fave of mine)


Spaghetti & Armour Meatballs with Rolls and Salad


Leftover Makeover

(Aren't you dying to know what it will be? Come back Thursday and find out!!)


Fish Fry at Church


Free night!! (Family plans)


Oven Roasted Pork Loin with Dry Rub + Sweet Potato Oven Fries

No grocery list yet this week - I'll link the Google Doc Grocery List as soon as I have it done!

Be sure to come back on Tuesday, March 3, 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! AND, you can link your Krogering post for the week, too! I sure hope you'll join in the fun!!
