It's Monday! Get Organized!

It’s is time for Menu Planning Monday! We are still running crazy around here with practices and meetings so our menu is simple and sweet.

Sunday: Fish Sandwiches and sautéed asparagus (I used grouper. They were breaded and pan fried.

Monday: Crust-less Quiche, Oven roasted broccoli. This I made this quiche last weekend and froze it. It really comes together more like a breakfast casserole – cubed bread, 6 eggs or so, a little milk, cheese and ham or sausage, cooked. The key to it tasting “not-frozen” is to freeze it unbaked. Thaw, then top with cheese and bake. You would never know it was prepared ahead of time.

Tuesday: French Dip Sandwiches and Green beans. These sandwiches are made from baked sirloin that was then sliced. Top with sautéed onions. Then I make brown gravy from a packet and add in Liptons, French onion soup mix. The sandwiches are supposed to be dipped into the sauce. My kids LOVE that, but my husband pours his on top.

Wednesday: Spaghetti and spinach salad

Thursday: Chicken and Dumplings and spinach salad. YUM! To make this quick, I roll out refrigerated biscuits for the dumplings.

Have a fabulous week!

I think it is great that you plan ahead. We purchase weekly with a vague sketch in our minds, but don't always follow a concrete schedule.

Mmmm French Dip sandwiches! That sounds great!
Oh and to answer you question about the whey protein, I get it at Sam's club and it's really a great price there compared to other places.
Have a great week!

I am attempting a quiche-like meal this week, also, so I like your comments about it! Thanks for stopping by my site and commenting on tofu! (I need all the encouragement I can get on that topic!)

I was really excited to find you and your science teacher site. I recently started a new site for teacher/parent resources. ( I would love to feature your ideas some time and link to your posts. Good stuff!

OMGoodness! I just realized that you are the crafty lady who made the adorable envelope system folder that I have been trying to find back. (I saw it in a giveaway once - was it for MPM?) Now, I know how to find you on Etsy. I'll just have to convince my hubby that it is necessary to have in order to successfully follow Dave Ramsey - hee hee!
