Menu Plan Monday

Last week's MPM post should I put it?...absent. I made up my menu and fully intended to type it up for all the world to see. Monday came and went, but no MPM for me. It seemed silly to post it on Tuesday, so I skipped it altogether.

Today's weather felt like fall, but the summer crops haven't gotten the message yet. Between my garden and the CSA veggies we get every Thursday, we are overloaded with vegetables. One day I may have them under control and then the next I can't find a spot for another zucchini in the fridge. A family of three can only eat so many veggies a week, so the freezer, dehydrator and canner are my friends this time of year.

This week's menu only covers the main dish so that I can feel free to use up whatever veggies are overflowing that day:

Monday - Spaghetti Pie

Tuesday - Pepperoncini Beef

Wednesday - Cajun Buffalo Wings

Thursday - Turkey Enchilada Casserole

Friday - pizza night - redeem coupon for a free cheese pizza from Papa Murphy's and top it with frozen homemade meatballs. If only I had some feta...mmm.

Saturday - grill night - burgers stuffed with pepperjack cheese and hot dogs wrapped in bacon

Sunday - CSA potluck/hog roast - I always enjoy potlucks at the farm, but Joe isn't crazy about them with all the funky vegetables dishes that the vegans bring. Something tells me that the vegans will be staying home, so that they don't have to witness the mass consumption of animal flesh by all the meat eaters. Ah, pork is so yummy.

Do you know what you're eating this week? If you would like some menu plan inspiration, be sure to check out Menu Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie to see what others are having!


  1. thanks for sharing the recipe for the chicken wings. my husband would love those. going to bookmark the recipe for later. :)

  2. That Turkey Enchilada Casserole looks really good. I may have to try that.

    I love your comment about the mass consumption of animal flesh. I so could not be a vegan, but that is just me.
