Menu plan? What menu plan?

Yes, yes, it's been a couple of weeks since I posted a menu. I know you've all been waiting with bated breath... :-)

Quite frankly, I lost my menu planning mojo. I found myself staring at a freezer and pantry full of food and finding no inspiration. I didn't want to make ANYTHING. That's usually when I pull out the cookbooks and try to re-inspire myself, but, well, we've had nice weather so I went outside to play instead. In spite of that, we did pretty well. I picked dinner up on the way home a couple of times, but, for the most part, we were still eating at home.

This week, I'm striving to get back on track. I was lucky to be able to start out the week with a couple of leftovers meals, which helps!

Monday: leftover pizza with a salad (I've been making a ton of salad lately. It's been great!)

Tuesday: leftover cube steak, with baked potatoes and some kind of veggie. I haven't made cube steak for a while, but Friday I was inspired so I stopped and picked some up. I don't make it very often, because, well, it's not at all healthy (I basically chicken fry it), and it costs way too much for what it is, but it's one of hubby's favorites so I indulge him from time to time.

Wednesday: Chicken Cacciatore (we have leftover sauce in the freezer from last time, so this will be nice and easy!

Thursday: Tuna casserole

Friday: Crock pot pot roast (last time I made a roast in the crock pot, my daughter must have pushed a button and turned off the program, because I came home to a cold crock pot and a half-cooked roast. Must remember to push it farther back on the counter this time - she's big on button pushing!).

Have a great week, everyone, and remember to go to orgjunkie.com for all your menu planning needs!
