Menu Plan Monday


As some of my longtime readers may recall, my husband is what you would call a "volume eater." He has no interest in eating breakfast, hasn't eaten lunch in years, and basically consumes an entire days worth of calories in one sitting that we call supper. That means, salad, entree, pickles, relish, hooves, antlers, and anything else that gets in the way. It is all topped off with dessert. I point this out so my MPM regulars know that most of my recipes (or links) are designed to feed 4-6 people, minimum. Yes, despite that it is just he and I at the table, I've been cooking for five since day one. Also, he doesn't mind leftovers and I rely on them.

Sunday:Corn & scallop chowder, salad, bread or BLT's. This is the exact recipe I use for the chowder. It is easy and very tasty!

Monday: leftovers

Tuesday: Fast and delicious spaghetti from this very recipe, salad, garlic bread. I omit the olives for myself, but this is still good and it uses some of our home canned tomatoes.

Wednesday: leftovers

Thursday: Sausage and Sauerkraut in the crock pot. An old recipe with sliced turkey sausage, sauteed onions & peppers, sauerkraut, some water and just a hint of brown sugar. Easy!

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: Brown sugar salmon, rice, spinach

  1. I come back to your site more and more and why something like "Menu Plan Monday" gets me excited, I don't know, but it does!! I look forward to it, copy some recipes, and think it's just precious. I love your contest idea and your blog is a breath of fresh air. Thanks a bunch for inspiring me. :)

  2. Hi Beth, thanks for reading my ramblings, I really appreciate your kind words!

  3. My husband is the same way(can eat like a horse at dinner and be lean during the day) and even though he is on deployment at this time, I know making his dinner is important, something I have failed at badly in my role as wife and mother. Since my husband has been on deployment I have found the Lord teaching me things that I should not take granted of being a stay at home wife and mom and plan meals is one of them...Thank you for sharing your meals this week with us, and I dont mind the serving sizes either...left overs are the best especially during these lean and unpredictable times...

    Bless You
