Menu Plan Monday 1/23

Last week was hectic with all the sickness in our house, then we had a fully scheduled weekend as well.  I am ready for the start to a new week, with everyone healthy again. With everyone being under the weather, it has made it easy to eat at home and not go out, which is a big goal for us this year.  I am hoping I can continue this during my husbands upcoming work trip which will leave me home with the kids for 2 weeks.  That is a lot of meals to prep, cook and clean up myself! 

Anyway, here is what our family will be eating this week.....

Monday -Flank Steak (recipe below!) / Mashed Potatoes / Mixed Veggies
Tuesday - Parmesan Crusted Tilapia / Noodles / Green Beans
Wednesday - Spaghetti with homemade Meatballs / Simple Salad / Garlic Bread
Thursday - Chicken Stuffed Shells / Corn / Rolls
Friday - Pepperoni Pizza Puffs / Rigatoni
Saturday -Crock Pot Night - Pot Roast
Sunday - Make Your Own Pizza Night with the little ones!
