Menu Plan Monday: Sept 7th~12th

Don't forget: today (Monday, the 7th) is the last day to toss your name in the proverbial hat for the fall earrings giveaway~don't miss out!! Go here for all the details!

Well, it's that time of the week again and I need to get with the program:) Last week I didn't even get my menu plan posted. There were several nights we weren't home, but I still felt somewhat discombobulated (I love that word!!) with my dinners.

This week is going to be a busy one, so I've got to stay organized! I know Monday is officiallly Labor Day, but we are actually going to celebrate it on Tuesday. Everyone in our family is very flexible with their schedules and my parents wanted to avoid the crowds and picnic the day after the holiday. Then our homeschool group co-op classes start this week and we are also packing up for a short trip to Kentucky. So, like I said, it's a busy one!

Personally, I've been a little bored with my menu planning lately. I want to try ALL new recipes, but I have to stop and think "would my kiddos eat this? probably not." Oh well, I'm trying a few new ones this week anyway...I can always crack open a can of Spaghetti-o's for them if they hate it, right? lol I'm pulling a couple of new ones that I've had bookmarked from some blogs. Can't wait to try them!

Monday: sweet & spicy bacon chicken w/baked sweet potatoes and green beans
Tuesday: Our Labor Day picnic~fried chicken, loaded baked potato salad, baked beans & raspberry dessert bars
Wednesday: fish po' boys w/garlic parmesan fries
Thursday: chicken-in-a-package
Friday: stuffed peppers (from the freezer) w/salad
Saturday: traveling to Kentucky!

I've got to hear more about these fries, LOL!

And we made loaded baked potato salad yesterday for our cookout. It always gets rave reviews.

Enjoy the weekend and your trip! I did not get a menu posted today because (ironically) I forgot it was Monday already. Feels like Sunday to me!

Love the idea of the garlic fries. I hope you will soon join me for Crock Pot Wednesday. Not only is it free, it's just a fun thing to do. I will look forward to your post on diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com with Mister Linky.
