Menu Planning Monday

I am getting a late start on this today, but it is still Monday! LOL We just finished dinner and my oldest ds came in from work, wolfed it down and declared it a winner! Of course it was covered with a maple syrup glaze, I'm sure that helped as he loves sugar! LOL Here is our Menu for this week:
Monday: Maple cranberry chicken w/brown seasoned rice and mixed steamed vegetables.
Tuesday: Salmon and egg noodle bake w/summer squash stir-fry
Wednesday: Mexican chicken casserole w/ garden green beans
Thursday: Veggie shepherds pie w/ garlic bread sticks
Friday: Orzo pasta w/ garden veggies and Parmesan chicken wingettes
Saturday: Home made pizza w/ tossed salad
Sunday: Goulash w/egg noodles and peas & carrots
Other cooking this week at my home consists of, but is not limited to; fruit cobbler, eggplant bacon, freezer jam, pickled carrots and bread machine bagels.
I pickled garlic last week, plan to pickle carrots this week and eggs next week. I am also waiting patiently for my okra to be ready in the garden so that I can pickle that as well (except for the little I promised to deep fry for my ds). Can you tell I like picked food? What I don't like is the acid and other weird sodium type items they put in the commercial items in stores. So, I make my own - of course - LOL Anyone else out there have any advice or opinions on pickling? Should I learn to can as well? Leave me a comment and let me know.

I posted in June on real "veggie bacon", not made with soy but eggplant. I will add a link on my blog.
