Menu Plan Monday ~ August 4th

After last week, I feel confident that I can do this again. it went very well! We spent less than $40 and even had Daniel's parents over for dinner. We didn't stick exactly to the plan, mostly because we forgot to set the meat out, but things went well. It was really nice to know what we're having and know that we had what we needed instead of wondering which restaurant to pick up something. I'm going to be a little more adventurous this week and make a few things that I haven't made much or ever. I'm excited about it though! Join us with your own Menu Plan Monday here.
Monday:
I will be at my parent's house helping my mom study for her final exam.
Daniel will either go to his parent's house or have a frozen pizza.
Tuesday:
Fettucine Alfredo
Crescent rolls (Odd, but I need to break in my new Pampered Chef pan)
Wednesday:
Pancakes!
Thursday:
Soft tacos
chips and salsa
Hoping Daniel's friend joins us
Friday:
My mother is graduating from the Police Academy!! We're having a get-together and will be eating there.
Saturday:
Daniel is working and will taking a sandwich or a frozen meal.
I will eat at my parent's house again as I have a photo shoot in their town.

Something I do as far as letting the meat thaw-when I take the meat out of the fridge to cook, I put the next night's meat from the freezer to the fridge to thaw overnight. It works for me!
And also-if you don't want to cook it-they sell cooked chicken in little packets in the meat aisle. It is pretty good-and it's a time saver. However, I don't really buy it anymore because I typically buy chicken in bulk.

The fettucine alfredo rolls sound interesting. Good luck with your kitchen adventures. I love trying out new recipes. :)
