Monday Menu Plan

Quite some time ago I realized that by planning out my meals for the week, and shopping only for those items (with the random jar of salsa thrown in for good measure), I would save money and waste less food. I used to dread getting groceries, and it's still not my favorite task, but I enjoy it infinitely more now that I'm on a mission, rather than aimlessly wandering around and throwing things into the cart.

Here's what we're eating this week:

Monday: Chicken Florentine Artichoke Bake. I made a double batch to share with friends from church who just brought home a brand new baby. (He's so super tiny and cute!)
Tuesday: Baked tilapia, brown rice and orange soy-glazed green beans. I found the bean recipe on one of those random, free recipe cards in the produce section at Meijer and
they have been a favorite ever since.
Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper Soup and biscuits. A staple.
Thursday: Reuben Bake, salad and Fruit Pizza. Of all of the foods on this fine earth, my husband requested this for his birthday meal.
Friday: Frozen Pizza. I won't be here to cook! Hooray!!

For the record, I am always on the hunt for new, yummy recipes. If you've got a good one, be sure to send it my way!
