Menu for week of June 24th

It seems I keep repeating items on my menus.  It's because I don't make something when I plan it but I have the ingredients to make it so I add it to my menu again.  Sometimes we end up with leftovers, other times I just don't have a hankering for what I've planned, and sometimes we just want pizza :/ .  How about you?  Do you stick to your menu as planned?  Sometimes I do, but it's rare.  Here is my plan for this week:

Today:  Pork Chops in the Crock Pot, Mashed Potatoes, Strawberry and Spinach Salad

Tuesday:  Chicken Tetrazzini, Green Veggie or Salad

Wednesday:  Ham, Pasta Salad, Brussels Sprouts

Thursday:  Spicy Chicken with Beans (it's a sort of chili), Cornbread

Friday:  Chicken Shepherd's Pie, Salad, Crescent Rolls

Saturday:  C's Sausage Casserole, Roasted Asparagus (a hubby fav)

Sunday:  Lovely Leftovers and ?  maybe something new!

That's my week.  How about you?  Go to  for 100's of menu plans.  Thanks for stopping by.
