Meal Plan Monday - September 19

So sorry about the lack of posts again over the last week or two...I started my new job and life has been a bit crazy! Now that I'm through with a lot of my training, I'm only scheduled around 15 hours a week for the next few weeks, so I should have more time to keep up with everything else in life. :)

Amazingly, even though I've been busy with work, we haven't been forced to eat out more. It just goes to show that if I have a good plan and stick to it, I can save my family money. I would hate to work just to pay for extra eating out. Seems to me like that would be a huge waste of time!

Here is my plan for this week:

Monday - Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Orzo with Zucchini & Tomatoes (new recipe!)

Tuesday - (working tonight) Leftovers for hubby and I, mac & cheese or pancakes for the kids

Wednesday - Buffalo Chickpea Patties, Rice, Salad

Thursday - Tacos

Friday - Probably out...L has a birthday party from 4-6 on the other side of town.

Saturday - (working) Something easy for the kids, frozen pizza or whatever my husband wants for himself (hehe...)

Sunday - Chinese food date night for hubby and I!

I am also planning to bake homemade hamburger buns (first time!), zucchini bread and Lemon Blueberry muffins (recipe to come tomorrow.)
