Menu Monday: May 4th to 10th

We are almost done with the Month of Menus, and although I'll reserve my final judgment for the end, I have to say I'm diggin' it so far. I like having to choose from a list of options rather than staring blankly at my menu because the 1876987 things I could possibly make are giving me brain freeze. Somehow, we have 8 meals after this week ... and 3 days until the "month" is over. Uh, oops.

(Yes, that's really my menu board. I love that darn thing. It hangs out in my pantry normally, rather than making its home on what looks to be a messy kitchen counter. Do not be alarmed, the messy part is an illusion ...)

M: Beef Tacos w/Spanish Rice and Toppings (It's not Cinco de Mayo yet, but its the only night this week when we're all home. Tacos are a family affair around here.)

T: Chicken Noodle Soup with Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches (from the leftover chicken on Sunday)

W: Ham and Potato Casserole, Veggies

R: Meatballs and Potatoes, Veggies (You pick the sauce night ... yay!)

F: Homemade Pizzas with Green Salads

S: Crockpot Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, and Onions

U: Mother's Day Feast of Sausage and Spinach Lasagne, Garlic Bread, Salads, Veggies, and Dessert! (Now, to decide which dessert ... hmmm ... )

Chicken Mongo (so much fun ... hopefully with pictures when we get to it)
