menu plan monday:

I haven't really sat down to plan my menu for this week, and I'm in the middle of a laundry disaster*, so I figured I'd do a quick plan while I let my hands warm up some.

monday: Tostadas with crockpot refried beans
tuesday: Turkey Ceaser Salad
wednesday: Turkey and Rice Casserole
thrusday: Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots
saturday: Beef Stew
sunday: Roasted Chicken with veggies

*my laundry disaster isn't horrible horrible, but the washer didn't spin or something (it made crazy clicking sounds) so everything is really soaking wet. I'm attempting to ring it all out and then will toss it in the dryer and be done with laundry for the day unless the husband fixes it as soon as he gets home. The bad part is the washer & dryer are in an un-insulated back room so all of the water is SUPER cold.


  1. Our washer and dryer are in the garage so I can relate to the cold! I avoided a lot of laundry last week! I hate it when my washer doesn't spin properly and I have to do wring them out by hand, the cold makes it so much worse!

    Your menu plan sounds good! I may get around to doing one soon; Lord knows it would be the smart thing to do!

  2. haha, menu planning is the only way I can keep straight what needs to defrost and what I'm supposed to be cooking! I started when the toddler was a baby because it forced me to actual cook. I like cooking, but it can be hard to remember what's going on with a baby in the house.

  3. I hope you got your washer spinning again! Thats a bummer! I got so far behind on laundry a few weeks ago that I loaded it all up and went to the the laundry mat! I was able to get 7 loads done in an 1.5 hours, including folding! It was great - I was thrilled - but it cost me an arm and a leg =)

    I am hoping to get a menu plan going soon myself. I have been doing a pretty good job at putting meal ideas together on Sunday and semi-preparing them to cut down on a busy and hectic week. Thanks for the inspiration!
