Menu Plan Monday

Click the image above to participate and see lots of other great menu plans!

Just got back from the grocery store with Dee and Mouse, and somehow I managed to spend $120 for the week. That's a lot, in case you were thinking I was bragging about being frugal. Good thing this isn't a blog about how to stretch your dollar. Although to be fair I did stock up on a few staples and household items.

I've only got five meals planned this week, because we are definitely going out to eat for my birthday later in the week, and with Labor Day weekend I'm not sure what our plans are yet. Anyhow, here's what's on the menu:

Green chile chicken enchiladas (yum) and corn on the cob
Sweet potato ravioli (this is a new to me recipe, and my prediction is that I will love it but everyone else at the table will shake their heads. Too bad for them!)
Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Baked Ziti (I'll use the penne in my pantry) and a salad
Orange chicken (from a bag in the freezer) and rice

Here are a couple of non-dinner recipes I'm also planning to make this week:

Coconut Avocado Smoothie
Homemade Granola Bars

How did the list go this week?

It's been ok. The enchiladas weren't as good as usual, but that is because I forgot to buy some of the ingredients and I improvised. The soup was great--can't go wrong with that much bacon and cream. :) I'm making the ziti tonight. Forgot to buy the wonton wrappers for the ravioli (what is wrong with me??) so that may have to wait until next week!
