Menu for the week of April 25th

It's the last week of April. I can hardly believe it. We have so much to do around here and so little time, it seems. I hope all of you had a blessed Easter weekend and didn't eat too many eggs or chocolate!

Here is my menu for this week:

Monday: Favorite Beans and Rice (This is a frugal and simple recipe that my family loves and we eat quite often. It is good topped with a little grated cheddar and sour cream. You can find the recipe in my recipe section)

Tuesday: Chef Salad (this is a good way to use up leftover Easter Ham)

Wednesday: All In One Quiche (If I still have some Easter ham, I will put that in this), Fruit Salad

Menu for week of April 4th

Haven't been blogging much lately due to homeschooling. We are forever trying to get caught up. Anyone else forever playing catch up?

Last week's menu just fell through the cracks. I wasn't feeling well due to the second cold in two months. So Hubby helped out by making a few meals and bringing home take-out. He's getting pretty good at cooking. I did make the Picnic Casserole and the food for the potluck at church. So some of those items I didn't make, will be in this week's menu and maybe the next one too. So here is my plan for this week:


Cranberry Dump Chicken, Broccoli-Rice Casserole, Glazed Carrots


Fish and Chips
(leftovers for me)

Spaghetti, Green Veggie or Salad, Texas Toast (Hubby volunteered to cook this meal)


Sausage Quiche, Fruit, Biscuits


Favorite Beans and Rice and leftover Biscuits


Lovely Leftover Buffet


Crock Pot Pork Chops, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Macaroni and Cheese (since daughter won't eat the mashed sweet potatoes or green bean casserole)
