Weekly Menu Planning – June 22nd

Many of the blogs I follow post a weekly menu. Because I’m such a follower, I thought I would start posting my weekly menu as well. I’d like to write about a different topic each day of the week (i.e. frugality, homeschooling, eco-friendliness, recipes, etc.), but I haven’t gotten there yet. Maybe a weekly menu post will steer me in the right direction.

Mon. – Tacos (bean and cheese or shredded beef [that was given to us as leftovers from a retirement ceremony and froze nicely in the deep freezer]), Spanish rice, refried beans, corn
Tues. – Pasta primavera, herb bread (premade and in the freezer), salad
Wed. – Chicken casserole / tofu casserole (yes, I’ll make both to please the masses…great for leftover lunches), mixed veggies, apple sauce
Thurs. – Grilled cheese, tomato soup, salad
Fri. – Homemade pizza (cheese and pepperoni), bread sticks, salad
Sat. – Tuscan pasta salad, shredded roasted chicken (leftovers from the freezer), salad
Sun. – Taco salad (using the leftover taco fixins from Monday), tortilla chips, salsa

I'm totally planning on doing this soon. I love to cook, and tend to make things a little too complex for my kids, who are typical little tykes--"give me chicken fingers or give me death!"

Btw, I am a friend of Justin's from high school, and just got in touch through another friend on Facebook. He kindly provided the link to your blog, and I have to say that I love it! You have a lot of good ideas to share--I, too, have been trying to get away from chemicals and am totally using baking soda next time I clean the bathroom. I looked at your pictures, too, and my goodness do ya'll have adorable children! My husband grew up in a Navy homeschooling fam, and we knew a lot of others during our years in San Diego, and all I can say is, you go girl! Stay strong. :) I look forward to reading more!
