Menu Plan for Week of April 19th

Weekly Menu Plan
I was sitting at the computer working on this week's menu plan when my husband walked by. I complained to him that I was tired of eating the same things. I would like more variety. He stared at me, thought a minute, then told me he didn't know what I was talking about. We don't eat the same things over and over. Okay. I.will.not.complain. I guess my main dishes are varied but I fix breakfast items and side dishes in a monthly blur. So I want to shake things up a bit (Did I scare you honey? I promise not to start us on a raw foods diet. Really.) but not too much. After all, my hubby's not complaining!

In the last few weeks I have been making double batches of some food then sticking it in the freezer for meals at a later date. So far I have a Pizza sitting in there, Chicken Spaghetti, Spaghetti sauce, Four Cheese Spaghetti, and Pumpkin pie filling. I'm finding it is a wonderful way to have a meal on hand for a busy evening, or unexpected company. Yesterday we had family stay over for the afternoon. Then it was decided they would stay for supper as well. We each shared food for lunch but supper was unplanned. For the crew of 10 here I decided on Four Cheese Spaghetti, Spinach, Pears, and Stove Top Stuffing. It was simple but filling. I made a huge batch of the Four Cheese Spaghetti. I had enough left over to fill a 13x9 pan. Perfect, a meal already made! Now I'm ready for the busy week ahead!
