Menu Planning Monday and Happy Labor Day!

Hello!  It's Monday, so I am attempting to make a plan for our week.  The big kids are home today for Labor Day (or Neighbor Day, as Daniel Tiger says:) so we are just hanging out today!  Kris is working, but will be home after this rotation to stay!  I can't wait...been missing him so much on this four nights of work!  The kids miss him too, they almost smother him when he comes home, but I know he loves it!

Our Menu

Monday-Leftover Cheese Tortellini soup for lunch (was so good, can't wait to have some more) and Spaghetti, Salad, and Garlic Rolls for dinner.
Tuesday-Creamy White Chicken Chili, cornbread muffins, mixed veggies
Wednesday-Eat at Church with Caravan!
Thursday-Mississippi Pot Roast, Roasted Red Potatoes, and fruit
Friday-Chicken and Noodles and Mashed Potatoes (Going to try and make homemade noodles...ha!  We'll see how that goes!)
Saturday-Leftovers for Lunch, Beef and Bean Burritos, Rice, Aunt Jill's Salsa and Chips for Dinner
Sunday-Chicken Fajita Quesadillas with pineapple with all of the trimmings and leftover salsa

I am really enjoying having a menu each week.  I had planned on linking up to other menu planning Mondays, and I might still try and do that from time to time, but I am finding it difficult to find time for all of the copying, pasting, linking, etc.  I would love to know how people do that all of the time---whew...just typing out the menu while corralling kiddos wears me out!  Hope everyone has a beautiful 2nd day of the "ber" months!

 
I really enjoy visiting these blogs for great recipes and menu planning ideas!

It's been very humid this weekend, in Vegas. Yuck. I'm just going to stay in, watch some QVC and catch up on housework.
Everything sounds so delicious.
I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
