Weekly Menu Plan

Sunday - Pot roast in the crock pot. Specific version still to be determined, but it will involve carrots, onions, and potatoes.

Monday - Black bean soup - one of our favorites. Saute an onion, add some garlic, then chicken broth, cans of black beans (rinsed & drained), some diced tomatoes, SALSA & lots of it, and corn. Serve with shredded cheese and/or sour cream and additional salsa.

Tuesday - Leftovers/sandwiches/whatever we can scrounge.

Wednesday - Spaghetti. Because I've been craving it. I'm completely lazy with it - jarred sauce over angel hair. L loves it when I make sauce with ground beef, but I actually prefer just the jarred sauce (the natural or organic versions because they don't have all the sugar & other stuff of the regular versions). So usually I alternate, and this time it's my turn for my favorite. Actually, we may have some of his preferred sauce in the freezer, which is the best of all - we each get it the way we like it best.

Thursday - Repeat Tuesday.

Friday - If we need something, then the cheesy potato skillet dish or grilled cheese or cheese quesadillas. Lately though we haven't needed anything on Friday for varying reasons, so I'm not really going to plan anything.

Jar spaghetti is a STAPLE at our house. And yes, we serve it over angel hair noodles. My husband likes it best with ground sausage (cooked just like you would with ground beef).

Oh, I bet my husband would love it with ground sausage instead of (or in addition to) beef. For whatever reason (probably just because that's how I grew up eating it) I really prefer meat-free spaghetti sauce.

Fortunately for me he doesn't mind the angel hair instead of spaghetti, because I prefer angel hair about 1000% over the fatter noodles.

Thanks for visiting!
