The Return of Menu Monday

Well, it's Monday and this means a return of Menu Mondays! Yes, I know you are all anxious to see what I'm planning to cook up for dinner this week... then again, you probably aren't but I believe in sharing so I'm gonna share my menu for this week with you anyway! :)

Monday: Homemade spaghetti and meatballs (with homemade sauce, my FAVORITE part! Actually, I just love that my kitchen and the rest of our apartment smells like an Italian kitchen!)

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff with egg noodles

Wednesday: Italian Beef Sandwiches with Nanny's Baked Italian Tomatoes (New tomato recipe from Hubby's grandmother and oh-my-gosh it's AMAZING!!!! I don't particularly eat tomatoes but I could eat these all the time! Super simple. Super yummy. Super fast and super cheap. That all makes it a keeper!)

Thursday: Slow Cooked Juicy Chicken with rice Pilaf and broccoli (roasted or sautéed) Note: I will make 2x as much as I need because I will be using 1/2 of it for my chicken quesadillas later in the week.

Friday: Lasagna with salad (and this is a store bought lasagna, folks. It's easier and really cost effective. And I had a coupon.)

Saturday: Chicken Quesadillas (using our second 1/2 of the juicy chicken) with salsa and black beans

Sunday: ????? Right now, I'm not sure what we will eat on Sunday night. To be honest, it might be macaroni and cheese.  Then again, it could be something else from earlier in the week.

Our schedule this week is really open to changing very quickly and it is possible that some of these meals won't actually get cooked or eaten this week. As usual, there is also a definite possibility/likelihood that meals will get switched around. I don't believe in having a schedule so ridged that you can't change things up if needed.

Hope this week's menu inspires you to cook up something yummy that makes you smile one of those big-I'm-so-content smiles :)

Happy cooking!
