Meals This Week

OK, so I am trying to switch things up a little bit this week. Hubby is tired of Spaghetti, and pasta for a meal. Spaghetti, OUT. Tuna Noodle Casserole, OUT. Great. Those were my two CHEAP meals too...

Which is fine. I want him to be happy with our meals, and I want him to be happy. PERIOD. So, for now, I will throw out (most) pasta from our menu, and try for more meat, which he wants. So, we will see how my shopping day reflects this new change!

For this week though, here is our menu:

Scrambled Eggs, sausage, toast
Oatmeal (with dried peaches)

Peanut Butter & Jelly
Mac-n-Cheese (These lunches are for the kids!)


Monday- Sloppy Joes, french fried potatoes, froz. peaches
Tuesday- Chicken Salads (with garden fixings! Mmmm!), maybe a blueberry cobbler...
Wednesday- Scalloped Potatoes, Veggie
Thursday- Baked Mac-n-Cheese, Sausages, corn
Friday- Tacos
Saturday- Young Couple's Meet (church group)
Sunday- Grilled Pork Chops (didn't have last week), garden veggie stir-fry (YUM!)

OK, so I got a little pasta in there, but hubby likes the baked mac-n-cheese. So, I guess I am OK for a while! ;) And this is also coming from a man who likes most everything, he's not real picky. SO, when he makes a point to tell me he DOESN'T like something, I take note. And am glad to do so!

So, what are YOU making this week???

Does he like beans? Vegetarian red or black beans with rice is inexpensive and yummy.

I am envious of everyone's sloppy joes...I think those are going on my menu next week!
