Menu on a Monday!

Before I get started, I want to share a cool idea I saw today. Check out this idea, specifically the
Mexican Monday
Tomato-ey Tuesday
Wild-Card Wednesday
Thrifty & Thankful Thursday
Fancy Friday
Soupy Saturday
Sandwich Sunday

I occasionally try to stick to a similar schedule but I really love her Wild card and Thrifty/Thankful days. Wild card, as she explains could be anything from a food whim you have or just leftovers. Thrifty/Thankful is a kid friendly cheap meal like mac n cheese and hotdogs. I love just scheduling a meal like that especially when it is likely we are going to have it anyway. But previously, it would be on a busy night when my scheduled meal just did not happen.

So anyway, I think I will give it a shot...with a tweak or two!

Mexican Monday - Mexican Flatbread Pizza
Tomato-ey Tuesday - School Open House so???? Prob. just grab something out!
Wild Card Wednesday - Cornbread & Chili
Thrifty/Thankful Thursday - Hot Dogs & Oven Fries (Beans for A!)
Fancy Friday - Chicken parm & Garlic Bread
Sandwich Saturday - Lemon pepper Chicken Sandwich
Sunshine Sunday(AKA Breakfast for dinner!) - Creamy Scrambled Eggs, toast, and sausage for the boys! (These eggs are unbelievably yummy!)

OOOO I love the sunshine Sunday idea - having breakfast for dinner! That was original in your meal plan! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Steph & Courtney!

I also want to add that we loved the Pioneer Women's Mexican Flatbread Pizza. It even heated up great for lunch today!
