Menu Plan Monday: Weeks of April 27 AND May 4



It's nearly May and this year, our two oldest are both playing sports at the same time (t-ball and softball). Adding to the craziness of trying to balance two team schedules for the first time, we've got events planned on every weekend in May.

It's a busy, busy time of year, isn't it?

In order to *attempt* to save my sanity, I'm doing a Double Duty Dinner Menu Plan; I'll cook double amounts of each main dish listed and freeze the extras for next week where I'll serve them up again...with a fantastic new twist! {Or so I hope!}

If this works well, I'll so the same type of menu plan again in two weeks on Monday, May 11.

Here's the plan with the items I'll make in DOUBLED quantities in bold.

Monday


Turkey Sandwiches, fruit, leftover pasta salad

Tuesday

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Wednesday

Oven Fried Chicken + Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Thursday

Caramel Apple Pork Chops (don't those sound YUM?!) + steamed veggies and Rice-a-Roni

Friday


Grilled Bacon Wrapped Burgers (life is better with bacon!) + Hot Dogs + tossed salad and baked beans

Saturday

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken over Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper Cayenne Sauce + tossed salad and bread

Sunday

Free Day!
{Luck to all my readers running the Flying Pig! I'll be down there cheering for my awesome...and good looking, single, Catholic, very fit...brother-in-law!}

Here's hoping my doubled recipes work!
