Menu Plan Monday

I love doing MPM! I feel like it helps me to organize my week & prep ahead what I need to so that weeknight meals run smoothly...especially since DH coaches basketball & I don't often know until about a half hour ahead of time when he will be home for dinner...

Sunday - Chili & cornbread while watching the games at IL's house
Monday - Steak, Baked Potatoes & green beans (I found a good sale on fresh ones at the store - I am wondering how they will be in the winter time!)
Tuesday - Homemade Stromboli*, using sauce & cheese leftover from making baked ziti at our get-together with friends this weekend.
Wednesday - Family night with ILs
Thursday - Sweet and Sour Chicken (first time trying this one - can't wait!)
Friday - probably go out w/ friends since we are chaperoning an activity night @ DH's school.

*For my strombolis, I simply use thawed bread dough. I stretch/roll it out, then either load half with toppings (pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, cheese, deli ham) or I start at one end, load up a strip with the toppings and then roll until those toppings are covered & repeat. Both ways work great - it just depends on how you like yours!

You'll love the sweet and sour chicken. It's one of our new favs!
Also, we do stromobolis too - I get the frozen pizza dough (or make it) and fill it with all sorts of stuff. Looks like a good week of meals!
