Menu Plan Monday

It's my second week of Menu Plan Monday, and I have to say, everything was much easier last week. I mean, I always have a general idea of what I'm going to serve everyone for dinner, but having it posted on the internet made it feel so....official. And I am ALL ABOUT following rules and plans and schedules and schemes, except for Weight Watchers. Shut up.

This week features a lot of winter-type food, I noticed. Probably because it is. Winter. Blame it on the unrelenting streak of gloomy grey days we've been having, although I should probably bake some sort of celebratory cake that the single-digit cold snap is finally over. For now, anyway.

Monday: Chicken and homemade noodles with mashed potatoes and peas

Tuesday: Sausage gravy and biscuits with scrambled eggs

Wednesday: Mexican chili topped with shredded cheese, chopped green onions and corn chips

Thursday: Baked pork chops with dressing (maybe some green beans with that?)

Friday: Poured crust pizza with pepperoni, extra diced onion and mushrooms, with jalapeño peppers and maybe barbecue sauce instead of regular pizza sauce

we are having chicken and dumplings because they are easier for me to make my noodles never turn out right

So glad you're enjoying MPM. I love it & have bad weeks when I don't get mine posted. True story.

Comfort food is great. I would LOVE sausage biscuits & gravy.

It's baked pork chop night? Can we come? Oh, yeah, it's not such good weather to be traveling, even for pork chop night. Carbonara here as apparently we are not having pasta near enough...apparently speaking and all.
