Menu Plan Monday

We had a good time this past week. My computer workshops went well, and the Skillet concert was amazing. We went swimming at my parents' house on Saturday, and today the boys went rock climbing while I worked on eMINTS lesson plans for the coming week. I made my first messenger bag this week which I am very proud of, and I hope to make another one this week. The boy goes to band camp this week, so it's just me and the hubby. I hope you enjoy the menu. For meal plan ideas, check out

Sunday - Filets, Sour Cream and Chive Stuffed Potatoes, Grilled Asparagus, Salad
Monday - Pasta Carbonara (didn't get to it last week), Broccoli, Salad
Tuesday - Orange-Pepper Chicken, Rice, Strawberries
Wednesday - Red Beans and Rice with Sausage (box of Zatarans low sodium and low fat smoked sausage - super simple), Peaches
Thursday - Fusilli with Shrimp and Spinach, Salad
Friday - Boys will be eating hot dogs and beans; I have book club
Saturday - BBQ Pork Sandwiches (I cook a pork butt roast in the crockpot overnight, shred it and pour in a bottle of BBQ sauce, and then let it cook again all day), French Fries, Green Beans
