Menu Plan Monday: Week of January 26



Looking for ideas for your weekly menu? Go visit the Menu Plan Monday linkup over at OrgJunkie's webjoint. There's more menu plans than you can shake a breadstick at!

{And, OrgJunkie has a fabulous giveaway for this week's Menu Plan Monday participants! This is a great week to start linking up your menu plan if you've never participated before - go see the great giveaway and drop your menu plan link!}

I've got a pretty well-stocked pantry thanks to last week's Mega Savings Sale at Kroger (which continues through this week; WOOT!) and I didn't cook one of the meals on my meal plan from last week. I'll be adding it back into my menu plan for this week.

Monday

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce + Steamed Veggies + Egg Noodles

Tuesday

Bread Machine Calzone + Salad

Wednesday

Chicken and Dumplings
(I can't find the recipe link I usually use; using this recipe, cook/shred about 1 lb chicken drumsticks or thighs and add 1 tsp thyme, 1/3 cup lemon juice, and sauteed onions, carrots, and celery {about 1/2 cup of each} -- ever so yummy!)

Thursday

Bacon Wrapped Mexican Hot Dogs and Mac-n-Cheese
{This recipe looks yummy -- but not necessarily the healthiest choice! Still, these look like they'd be seriously tasty if you're planning a Super Bowl party on Sunday.}

Friday

Amy's Barbecue Chicken Salad {I'll used a bagged salad rather than separate lettuces.) + Cornbread {I'll use a mix to keep it easy!}

Saturday

We'll grab a quick bite out for dinner on our way to a family event that evening. Fear not, frugal friends; this dining experience will most definitely involve coupons of some sort! Time to bust out the Entertainment Book!

Sunday

BLTs + O'Charley's Baked Potato Soup Copycat Recipe
{Note: I'm paying close attention to the "tweaks" in the reviews of this recipe and will substitute milk for the half & half. }

I've posted the grocery list needed for this menu plan as a GoogleDoc; find it here. You should be able to print it right from your browser.

If you see that I missed any ingredients, please drop a comment or email me; I'll revise the document as soon as possible.

Be sure to come back tomorrow, Tuesday, January 27, 2009, for my weekly feature Let's Go Krogering! I'll show you the deals + coupon matchups I found for my menu plan at my local Kroger so you can get 'em, too!
