Menu For the Next Two Weeks....

My husbands hours at work are changing...again lol. We believe he will be changing from second to first shift, so it should really stir things up here at home for a while. I'm looking forward to seeing how it effects our meal times, which we currently eat at noon but will be switching to the "normal" hour of 5PM.

Here is what I have planned for the next two weeks:

1- Roast beef on rotisserie, sweet potatoes, green beans (Some beef held back for homemade pot pie)
2-Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread (Cook 2 lbs of hamburger, hold 1/2 back for hamburger gravy.)
3-BBQ Pinto Beans in the crockpot, salad, bread
4-Beef potpie
5- Hamburger gravy over brown rice, (cook extra rice for pinto burgers) corn, and broccoli.
6- Tater tot casserole , peas, salad (Not the healthiest, but a rare family favorite :P)
7-Sandwiches and raw veggies (This is for Wednesday evenings before prayer meeting.)
8- Pinto bean burgers, & salad
9- Roasted chicken dinner, mashed potatoes, corn and homemade wheat rolls (Some chicken held back for chicken stew.)
10- BLT's with raw veggies & fruit (Also for a Wednesday evening before prayer meeting.)
11- Tacos or nachos with beans & rice as the filler, salad
12- Chicken stew with biscuits
13- Chili, salad and corn bread.
14- Meatloaf, baked potatoes, salad

Now we probably won't follow this exact order of having the meals (unless I am holding back or cooking extra of something for another meal) but this will give you an idea of what we have planned. The actual meal of the day will be decided in the morning by my sweet hubby before he goes to work (the roast and chicken will probably be kept for a weekend evening so we don't need to worry as much about thawing time. )
