Menu Plan Monday - week of November 17-23

I have been toying with the idea of participating in Menu Plan Monday with orgjunkie.com, but I have never been much of a menu planner. I do think that it will help me stay on task with using my stockpile and to not eat out (especially on the days that I work). I also hit the jackpot today, my in-laws had us over for dinner tonight and had ham, corn, and cheesy potatoes (yum!). they offered me the rest of the ham, which was a sizable amount. I'll cut it up and freeze a lot of it, use some for sandwiches for my hubby's lunch, but I also want to incorporate it this week. Here is my tentative plan for this week (I may end up switching days, but you get the gist :)).

Monday (this is a day I work) - Haystack Casserole in the crock pot.

Tuesday - Tacos

Wednesday - (this is also a day I work this week) - Grilled Cheese sandwiches, tomato soup

Thursday - Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole - this is just something I made up from some other recipes, but it is really yummy. Take about 1 cup each of cooked cubed chicken and cooked cubed ham. Place in the bottom of an 8x8 casserole dish. Add 1 can cream of chicken soup and about 1 cup grated Swiss cheese (or whatever cheese you have). Stir. Prepare 1 box of Stove Top stuffing according to package directions. Pour over the top of the ham/chicken/cheese/soup mixture and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Friday - Lasagna

Saturday and Sunday - these are leftover nights for us.

Of course I will add veggies and/or bread as needed to these meals.

I hope this helps me to stay on track!

Hello! Thanks so much for joining us, the more the merrier! Unfortunately I did have to delete your link and re-add it for you. You didn't leave spaces in your name and it was causing the columns to push out. Just wanted to let you know what happened in case you were looking for your link.

Welcome and have a great week!
