Menu Plan Monday

Here we are, the first full week of a new year. The best day to implement our new budget, our new eating habits, our healthier choices and to dredge up our old hate of the dreaded scale! With that said, here is what we are eating at our house this week ~
Monday: Crock Pot Turkey drumsticks in a homemade enchilada sauce w/mashed potatoes and green beans.
Tuesday: Black beans and pork over rice w/ mixed vegetables
Wednesday: Church bible study/dinner resumes
Thursday: Scalloped Parmesan potatoes with turkey sausage bake w/corn
Friday: Crock pot cchicken noodle soup w/ home made bread
Saturday: Home made pizza w/salad
Sunday: Garbanzo and pepper curry on rice
That is a quick look at what we are doing for dinner this week. It will be hectic with many activities starting up again after the holidays. Thank goodness for my crock pots! For more menu plan Monday visit
