Menu Plan Monday

So this is a 2010 goal of mine. To make a menu and stick to it. I really want to save as much money as possible this year and eating at home is the first step. I have a semi-picky husband and a toddler that one day eats everything and the next day hates everything. I am just getting started so I am working on more ideas. However check out the organizing junkie's post. There are so many great ideas there I hope to borrow some for future menus. I know I am getting started late but I intend to get this started much sooner in the future.

Monday- (I was running around doing errands so when I got home I grabbed the easiest thing to make) Fish Sticks, Mac-n-Cheese, applesauce, green beans.

Tuesday- Slow cooker Pot Roast, Carrots, Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli, Garlic Cheese Biscuits (One year well check for my son and at 3pm no less so I know I will be late getting home with traffic and all. Yay me planning ahead.)

Wed- Turkey Kielbasa with Sauerkraut, Black-eyed Peas, Turnip Greens, Cornbread, and probably some form of potato (for the hubby this isn't one of his favorite dinners).

Thursday-Left Over Roast Morph (I will post what I do with this on Thursday I am thinking it might be barb-q biscuit cups) vegetable and applesauce.

Fri- Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Mashed potatoes, Peas, and rolls. (Quick food I bought the chicken breasts stuffed in the freezer section they are jalapeno and cheese filled)

Sat- Crunchy Beef Tacos, Fiesta Rice, and applesauce

Sunday- Slow Cooker Pork Roast, Green Beans, Potato Packets.

I will post some recipes I try and I also plan to make a dessert and will post that also. I really want to try and stick to this hopefully this will be one 2010 goal I keep.

Your menu sounds delish! Please share the recipe for BBQ biscuit cups, a Southern girl can NEVER have too many recipes for BBQ or that use biscuits, let alone that combine the two!

Hey the biscuit cups are an idea I had from seeing a similar thing on a site somewhere a long time ago..I forgot where it was and the ingredients they use so I will have to wing it... but I will post what I do and if it turns out good or not. I am trying to change it up in the menu department so I will be experimenting alot. Like todays roast I will post if it turns out as good as it looks!
