Menu Plan Monday

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

Apparently, it’s the time of the week again where I have to come up with some stuff for us to eat. I am trying to make some VERY simple recipes this week. Is it Thanksgiving week yet? Honestly I could just skip this week and get straight to Thanksgiving, how about you? I’m looking forward to seeing my parents, sister, and extended family. Not to mention having Mr. V home for a few days (which equals NAPS without guilt!) and having a 36-week ultrasound to see our little guy.

Sunday: leftover Wake-Up Casserole
Monday: homemade pizza with bacon, mozzarella, and anything else I can find in the fridge
Tuesday: Cheesy Beef and Rice, veggie
Wednesday: salsa chicken tacos (thanks Suburban Granola for the inspiration!)
Thursday: Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese (if I can find one ounce of energy, I would love to make this homemade potato bread for the grilled cheese and general consumption … it’s SO good!)
Friday: Leftovers or tailgate for football game
Saturday: If you can find it, you can eat it!

What do you make when you’re trying to stretch your budget a little?

On a completely different note, it is really on my heart tonight to ask for your prayers. One of my former coworkers in Nashville has twin grandsons that were born at 30 weeks. They were in the NICU but came home a few weeks ago. Now, one of the boys (Thomas) is back in the hospital. He has a rare heart defect that the doctors aren’t even sure how to treat. It seems he will have surgery sooner than later to help him hold out until age 2, when he could have a valve replacement.

Libbie has been SO healthy that I can’t even imagine being a mommy to a sick child. It breaks my heart for this family. Please pray for their strength and for little Thomas’ healing.

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16, NIV
