Menu Plan Monday ~ Sept 27th

Hi everyone!

This was an exciting weekend for us as we added a new addition to the family!

Meet Milow:

We adopted 3 year old Milow from the rescue center here.  He is such a good and mellow doggie.  I think he’s going to fit in nicely.  Anyone that knows me knows I’m not a dog person but this little guy has stolen my heart already.

So no menu highlight from last week sadly.  I wasn’t feeling the love with any of my recipe selections…hopefully this week will be a better one 🙂

If you didn’t see already, Laura from Heavenly Homemakers has new fall menu planners ready to print off.

Okay so here’s what’s on our menu:

Monday: Grilled sirloin steak, baked potatoes and grilled veggies

Tuesday: Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops

Wednesday: Hearty Minestrone Soup (slow cooker)

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: My son’s birthday!  His pick:  Lemon & Garlic Chicken Drumsticks served with french fries and gluten free, dairy free and egg free chocolate cake for dessert!  (I’ll post recipe next week)

Saturday: Baked Ziti with Spinach and Sausage

Simple Supper Sunday


Menu Plan Monday guidelines and banner selections are here.

    Cute puppy! I hope you find a winner meal this week. I always hate it when we have several days of so-so dinners in a row.

    What a cutie! We love dogs, ours is almost 13 yrs old, sadly I don’t think it will be much longer that we have him around.
    The Fall flavored pork chops sound yummy!
    Thanks for hosting another great MPM!

    Awww, welcome to Milow!! Cutie, he is.

    We have the same meal planned for today! And a lot of other similar meals. I did the caramel apple pork chops this past week…my fav by far.

    What a cute addition to your family!!

    I’m back after totally missing my menu plan last week. Life without a plan is just too much – especially with the crazy schedule we have.

    Have a great week!

    What a cute dog! Is this the only pet you all have?

    Thanks to you, our recipe highlight from last week was the Italian Sausage & Potato Roast. Before he was even finished eating, my husband said I should make it again. 🙂 So thanks again!

    Welcome Milow!

    Looks like Friday is a good day to have a birthday – my husband shares the date with your son (and my Gramma)! It was his pick too and of course, he selected his favourite… Barbecue Hamburgers! With chocolate cake, of course!

    Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

    What a cute puppy! Looks a little like our bichon frise. I just heart cute little dogs. I wanted to let you know that after attempting 9 times, I posted my Menu Plan link, but it appears that you cannot click on it. I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’m going to leave it up….number 131. Maybe it just appears that way to me?? Who knows?? Just wanted to appologize if I had messed up for some reason. Will try to get it right next time! Enjoy your puppy!

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you! I participated this week in the Meal Plan Monday, which really motivated me to have a solid meal plan ready. This led to a much easier week as far as dinner goes. Also, thank you to all the people who visited my site, hope it was helpful!
