Menu Plan Monday - June 9th


Last week's falafels turned out better than I expected. I've never had falafels before, so of course I have no idea what they *should* taste like. The cucumber and yogurt sauce was quite refreshing. Overall mixed review from the family. 2 out of 3 babies did not really care for them LOL!
Here's our menu and grocery totals for the week. Scored some FREE Tennessee Pride ground sausage at Lowes this week! For more meal plan ideas visit Laura at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
Breakfast & Lunch: Items already on hand including homemade waffles and Peanut Butter granola & yogurt.
Dinner:
Saturday - Dinner Out! Making a day trip back home and will pick up BBQ from my fav place on the way back.
Sunday - Tuna Noodle Casserole (using green peas instead of broccoli and french fried onions for topping instead of chips) & garden salad
Tuesday - Dirty Rice w/steamed corn
Wednesday - Taco Style Lentils & Rice served in warmed hard taco shells with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream and shredded cheese
Thursday - Feta & Vegetable Rotini Pasta salad w/honey wheat bread
