Joyce's Menu Plan 11/4 - 11/9

The upcoming weeks are the busiest of the year for me.  As assistant director for our fall play, which opens on November 13th, I will be spending a great number of hours at rehearsal in the evenings after work and on Saturdays.  I am already feeling the effects of not planning well this past week.  Fortunately, we had leftovers two nights, but we did end up eating hot dogs one night and pizza another - definitely not one of our better weeks.  So, I am determined to make a meal plan this week and get to the grocery store ASAP.

Sunday - Chicken Divan
It has been a while since I made this delicious casserole.  It always serves me well when I need leftovers later in the week.  Plus, it has broccoli in it and my kids still love it.
Monday - Sausage, Tomato, and Spinach pasta
This is one of my family's all-time favorites.  I love how easy it is and how quickly it comes together; it literally takes the time to boil water and cook pasta.  And with such healthy ingredients (and so few of them), it is definitely a winner.
Tuesday - Hearty Taco Stew
You can't go wrong with a slow cooker meal that is guaranteed to have leftovers.  I will serve this with cornbread and salad.
Wednesday - Leftover Chicken Divan
It will just be me and the kids for dinner this night, so the leftover chicken divan should be plenty for the three of us.
Thursday - Leftover Hearty Taco Stew
As I said, this needs to be a low-maintenance, quick prep kind of week.  I am maximizing the leftovers.
Friday - Zesty Pork Chops
It is time for me to use the pork chops in my freezer and the apple left in my fruit bowl!  This is a tasty recipe that brings a little variety to the table.
