Monday Menu

For the past several weeks, I have been cleaning out my pantry and freezer so I can restock.  I have thrown away way too many things that have expired - not just from a few months but from YEARS ago.  Some I opened and threw out since it was not good.  Saturday, I went to the grocery store and spent way too much money.  With two teenagers in the house, my grocery bill is getting higher and higher.  My goodness those boys can eat and eat and eat - well, you get the picture.

This is my menu for this week:

Monday - oven baked BBQ chicken leg quarters, dressing, gravy, and green beans

Tuesday - home-made vegetable soup, crackers.  The cold weather is coming back and I need something warm.  Plus, I am working until 6:00 PM with teacher/parent conferences.  I need something that the family can feed themselves.  Otherwise, their daddy will go through fast food.

Wednesday - I am torn here.  I could have cabbage with polish sausage, and mashed potatoes OR I could have spaghetti with meatballs and garlic bread.  Either meal would be a winner at my house.  I guess I will decide come Wednesday afternoon.  Regardless, it will be one of the two.

Thursday - chicken fillet sandwiches, chips

Friday - eating out to celebrate Nikolai's birthday.  

Saturday - this will be left-over day OR I might fix nachos (again, depends on my mood and if we have any leftovers.)

Come join us anytime!



  1. I find my meal choices some days depend on my mood too. Your menu reminds me that I have some dressing in the freezer I need to use soon.

  2. Great Minds! I too have dressing (and turkey slices) I need to use. I also had the polska kielbasa (found pierogies in the freezer) this week.

    Love the vintage image you found to illustrate your post!
