Menu Plan Monday - Nov 17th

Here we are, T-minus one week until Thanksgiving and I'm LOVING the fact that I don't have to cook this year! Usually I bring a dessert or side dish, but we are going to my dad's for dinner and my in law's for dessert, so we get off the hook because we're house-hopping :)

Last week's menu went really well - the Obama Chili was FANTASTIC, and the leftovers were just as good. I am using up the rest of it this week but I've already got requests to keep it in heavy rotation. The Caraway Pork Chops were pretty good, but I think I'll cut the amount of caraway seeds in half next time - the flavor was REALLY strong. We did a bit of stockpiling the pantry last week, so I tried to put together a menu of ONLY stuff we had on hand for this week - especially good knowing that I have to buy diapers and TP this week!

Here's our game plan...Be sure to check out all of the other menus over at I'm an Organizing Junkie for more yummy ideas!

monday - Veggie soup from the freezer, grilled cheese sandwiches ($1.20 for 3 servings)

tuesday - 7 layer casserole ($6.63 for 6-8 servings)

wednesday - Sausage and Penne bake ($7.45 for 8 servings)

thursday - Mimi's Sticky Chicken, mashed potatoes, veggies ($6.31 for 10+ servings, plus TONS of leftovers)

friday - Burritos made with leftover chili, rice and cheese ($1.70 for 4 servings)

saturday - Homemade cheese pizza ($2.30 for 8 servings)
