Menu Plan Monday: Week of May 4

Well, my plan last week of cooking doubled dinners for my meals....WORKED!

Here's the link to last week's doubled menu plan.

I have (4) main dishes in my extra freezer; the grilled chicken we cooked on Saturday was SOOO good that there was just a little bit left (we also had my awesome bro-in-law and super mom-in-law here for dinner that night).

Here's what we'll be having this week; items that were doubled and frozen from last week's meal plan are bolded:

Monday:

Hamburgers and hotdogs, Grinny Beans (this is a family recipe, sort of a spaghetti, tomato, and bean casserole - yum!), and salad

Tuesday:

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Tacos + all the yummy fixings

Wednesday:

Meatball Subs, French Fries (frozen), and tossed salad

Thursday:

Oven Fried Chicken and Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese, carrot and celery sticks

Friday:

Apple Porkchops shredded and used to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches with chips, fruit, and celery & carrot sticks

Saturday:

Off to my awesome sis-in-law's for dinner to celebrate my nephew's First Communion!

Sunday:

Happy Mother's Day!!

{Free Night! This mama is NOT cooking a THING!!}
