Menu Plan Monday

With just five weeks left until we move, I've decided that it's time to start trying to use up all of what I have here in the house rather than doing a regular grocery store run. I know that there will probably be tons of food items that get tossed because they are opened, I'd like to use up as much as I can. Whatever is left at the time of our departure I will either give to friends or donate to the food pantry at our church.

Here's what I've come up with for this week:

Monday - Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and corn

Tuesday - Mexican Chicken with yellow rice and a salad

Wednesday - Church!

Thursday - Beef chili and cornbread

Friday - Hmm...I'm hosting a line dance for our homeschool group's teen group (in my empty house!) - I'll probably just make some appetizers.

Saturday - Spaghetti, garlic bread and italian salad

Sunday - Zesty Mac & Cheese (toss a can of Ro*Tel in), salad and steamed broccoli

Thanks, as always, to Laura at The Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday. It's a great way to find new ideas to shake up your family meals.

In other news, the kids' passports arrived this weekend. Now we need to send copies of them, along with their birth certificates and our marriage license off to Hubby's company for them to begin processing our visas. Hopefully that won't take too long.
Had a couple of promising showings on our house and several non-promising ones, those people who just want to kill time and see what people's houses look like. The two promising ones are for renting, though one is interested in renting with a purchase option. We'll see what happens - I've heard it before, so I don't want to get my hopes up.
Ok, I'm off to get to sleep. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!

Hey Lori, We did the same thing when we moved cross country. Some nights were the weirdest combinations, but all I had left the day before we moved was the dry goods for the food pantry. Good luck to you.
