Menu Plan Monday - Aug 24th, '09

We're into week 2 of the new baby and I actually managed to get both kids down for an afternoon nap at the same time! The quiet in the house is heavenly ;)

Last week I did *ok* with sticking to the menu, though one night when I was home alone with the kids I resorted to mac & cheese for my toddler instead of thawing something...we'd had a rough morning and I totally forgot to thaw dinner! This week I'm hoping to do a little better, hubby is back at work so I'm on my own for dinner most nights. It's tough to be motivated when the only other mouth I need to please would vote for grilled cheese sandwiches every night should I give him the choice!

Here's what we're (attempting) eating this week, don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for tons more menus and ideas!

monday - Black Bean Quesadillas, sliced green peppers ($5.80 for 6 servings)

tuesday - Chicken Cordon Bleu over egg noodles - OAMC ($6.75 for 6 servings)

wednesday - BBQ shredded chicken sandwiches, mixed veggies ($4.30 for 4 servings)

thursday - Leftovers - free!

friday - Homemade veggie soup, Whole Wheat Biscuits - OAMC ($6.81 for 8-10 servings)

saturday - leftover Cabbage Roll Casserole from the freezer, leftover biscuits - free!

sunday - Clean Out Fridge Night - free!

The first time you can get both kids down for a nap is a mind blowing experience. Congratulations! :) You are VERY good for keeping up with your meal planning. I made and froze three weeks worth of meals before my daughter was born and still struggled for another week before I was really ready to start again!
