A Quick Menu Plan

Finally, a moment to sit and sketch out a menu plan for the rest of the week:
  • MONDAY (last night): smoked sausage, macaroni & cheese, steamed broccoli (kids' request meal)
  • TUESDAY: crockpot pizza, garlic bread, green beans
  • ***Crockpot pizza is one of those meals I throw together with whatever is on hand- today's version will use partially cooked shell pasta, a pound of browned sausage, pepperoni, a jar of spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, and onions. Mix it all up and cook on low for 4-5 hours-- yum!
  • WEDNESDAY: leftovers
  • THURSDAY: chicken tacos (chicken pieces + taco seasoning + salsa, cooked in the crockpot all day and served in tortillas with cheese, lettuce, etc.)
  • FRIDAY: ham steaks, au gratin potatoes, peas

All of those are quick and easy, no-recipes-required meals. I've almost given up on menu planning these last couple of months as our busy schedule keeps changing. This week is especially crazy, but I feel better knowing I at least have a plan to fall back on.

P.S. Even though it's Tuesday, you can still check out tons of others' menus over at Menu Plan Monday! :)
