I would say we have a habit here with this menu planning thing! Whoo hoo!
So, last week. I committed to making at least ONE NEW MEAL each week. Even though we flip flopped some meals this past week, I plan to pick up with this again this week.

HOW WE DID LAST WEEK of 9/7/09:
Monday: Labor Day - Back home from Camping @ the lake late - Ate at the Marina
Tuesday: Grilled hamburgers and french fries. Need to use lefteover thawed hamburger patties from the lake. I also will pre-cook some of it to make nachos later this week out of the extra pound of patties I thawed so they won't go to waste. - Ended up making Hamburger Helper. Husband had already ate. Kids and I really like HB Helper. :-)
Wednesday: Cracker Crust Chicken with red potatoes in gravy and peas - I just use crushed saltines (with some seasoned salt) to coat chicken cubes that have been dipped in egg and then fry them. (This is the third week of this being on the menu. If we don't cook it this week, I'm taking it off the menu for a while!) - Cooked it and we ate it. Made regular mashed potatoes and corn adn some really great homemade gravy. Gotta put this back on the menu everyone really liked it. (Leftovers were great the next day too!)
Thursday: Home made pizza. Still have alot of good peppers from the garden. Plus, I bought pepperoni on sale for camping (to make pizza pockets over the campfire. SEE NOTE BELOW). We didn't end up using it so, Home made pizza sounds good! - Husband brought home pizza in honor of NFL opening night. OK by me!!! LOL!
Friday: Baked nachos using fresh salsa I'm gonna make this week and the ground beef I cooked on Tuesday night. Didn't make salsa. Ended up going out to dinner with husband, kids and sister-in-law.
Saturday: NEW RECIPE - Stuffed Chicken Rolls with Gravy from Miss Vickie's pressure cooker cookbook. Page 236. Gonna give this one a try! - Didn't end up making this so it's on the menu for this week. (See above). We had some good friend's kids over and my oldest daughter requested that I make homemade chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes. We had this several weeks ago and everyone chowed down. If that meal pleases FOUR finicky kids, yes dear, I will make that! ;-)
Sunday: Pepper Steak - Once of our faves this summer because it's easy and our garden is still crankin out the peppers! - Had friends over so we ended up having home made pizzas that were planned for Thursday.
Have a great week everyone!
