Menu Plan Monday

OK - I know that it is really Tuesday, but we had guests for dinner last night, so I spent most of yesterday cleaning and preparing for that. It was a fun evening! I have checked out the ads for this week's sales, and am ready to get it all planned out. I'm going to use some new recipes and/or try to find pictures of the ones I already just makes it funner to read, huh? And I'm just going to post dinner meals, the lunch ones are almost always the same.

We did Homemade Pizza last night. This is probably the 3rd or 4th time I've used this recipe and each time I make it I try something new and it becomes even yummier! Last night was THE BEST and I'm not changing anything else! This is definitely something we'll make every week. In case anyone wants to know, and has tried this recipe, I find that letting it rise in the oven for only about 5 minutes (while the oven is preheating) and then baking the crust for about 7 minutes BEFORE the toppings are put on, then topping and baking for about 10 minutes works the best for us. All I can say is YUUUUUUUMY!
So for the rest of the week...
Pork Chops - OK, I couldn't find a link for this one the way I make it, so I might just take a picture and add the recipe on here later....we shall see. Served with flavored mashed potatoes from a box (I think I got that for next to nothin') and cold veggies with ranch.

4 Bean + Tomato Soup - so my mom just told me about this one yesterday. And canned beans are on a great sale this week at Kroger. Perfect timing! I am in love with making homemade dough in my kitchen aid mixer. It's soooo easy. I'm going to make some homemade bread to serve with this soup.
Farmhouse Chicken -made with leftover chicken from the Crockpot chicken recipe. Served with leftover homemade bread and some kind of frozen veggies.

Spaghetti - served with Italian Cheese Bread...oh my...I can't wait to try that one out! I'll let you know how it is! :)

Tacos - served with spanish rice and cold fruit salad
