Menu Plan Monday

Hi! It's Jilly. Happy Monday! Oh, man...I have so much stuff to do today! Do Mondays feel like that to you?! Reclaiming the house from the weekend, laundry, errands...

Since I need to go shopping today I figured I should probably go with some kind of plan, right?! So, I actually made a menu for this week! (Go me!)

And, I thought I would share my plan with you, because sharing is caring. Maybe my plan will spark some meal ideas for you! Here we go...

Monday: Creamy Mexican Turkey Soup with some of our leftover turkey. My husband decided last week that he wanted to make a turkey. Ok, hubs. Whatever. As long as you're cookin', I don't care! This recipe is from Recipe Girl, and it is awesome!

Tuesday: Spinach Lasagna Rolls. Recipe from These are SO easy to make! I made a bunch of them with the 8-11 year old girls at church for an activity, and they were able to make them with little direction from me.

Wednesday: Crockpot Cowboy Chicken. I just got this recipe from my friend. I went over to her house the other day while it was cooking in the crockpot and it smelled delicious! We'll give it a whirl!

Thursday: Spaghetti with meat sauce. I am perfectly happy making noodles and pouring canned sauce on top of it, but not the hubby. He has to "fix" everything! So, I will be browning some hamburger and onions to add to the store bought sauce. *Make extra hamburger to set aside for Saturday's meal!*

Friday: Southwest Chicken Pasta. I have some green & red bell peppers in the fridge that need to be used. I can't find the recipe I've used to make this before, but this one from Campbell's Kitchen sounds pretty good.

Saturday: Taco Soup. We're doing family pictures that day, so a nice, warm soup all ready in the crockpot when we get home will be nice. (The link is to Paula Deen's recipe, which is similar to how I make it.)

Sunday: Beef Stroganoff. Hubby's favorite meal his mama makes. My son asked me yesterday if we were going to have it sometime. Sounds good to me!

There you have it, folks. Now I need to get goin'. Hopefully the washers in the laundry room are available now so I can throw in a couple loads of laundry, then run my errands. I need to find all the stuff for my kids' Halloween costumes because the Trunk-or-Treat at church is this Wednesday. Aah! How did Halloween sneak up so fast?!


  1. I'm stopping by from Menu Plan Monday. My husband has to have meat added to the storebought sauce as well. Halloween did sneak up out of nowhere this year didn't it?

    1. Yes! I don't know about yours, but my hubby says his sauce has to have "real" meat in it. Ha!

  2. I've wanted to try those lasagna rolls for weeks! I have to try these since I have all the fixins ready to go.

  3. Love love love those spinach roll ups! SO GOOD! Yummy menu :D

  4. Yum! Those spinach lasagna rolls look so good! I'm the worst at menu planning, so I'm going to try a few of yours. I suppose with triplets you have be organized! Thanks for stopping by today!


Thanks for commenting! It really makes me smile!
