Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 31

My grandson at the pumpkin patch, "a man alone with his thoughts"
 Happy Halloween!  Today it is raining and overcast.   But the weatherman says it will clear up before the Trick or Treaters start out on their hunt for candy!   Last week's menu planning did keep me on track with my budget.   Here we go again this week.  The menu is planned and the groceries are bought.  Can we stay on track again?  We are certainly going to try! 

Monday:   Cap'n Crunch Baked Chicken 

Tuesday:   Tater Tot Casserole **There are about a million different ways to make this dish** I had no idea!! Okay, on Cooks.com there is 554 ways to make this dish....which seems like a million! Here is a sampling of the Tater Tot Casserole Recipes:
Tater Tot Casserole (no beef) 
Cheesy Tater Tot Casserole

Wednesday:  Scrambled Eggs, Grits, Sausage and Toast  ( We love Breakfast for Dinner!)

Thursday:   Escalloped Cabbage (Pioneer Woman Recipe)

Friday:  Grilled Pork Chops, Grilled Marinated Zucchini, brown rice

Saturday:  Chili's Restaurant!  We have a gift card to use :)

Sunday:  Taco Burgers

I don't know that I've ever been able to stick to a meal plan. Every time I thought I would try, by the second or third day I'm in the mood for something other than what I've planned for. The same thing for pre-cooking. I can't stand having the same thing more than twice in a two or three day span (unless it's sushi or pizza). Maybe I have some sort of food attention disorder ;-)
