Menu Plan Monday

I do love to cook, but I do like a week that affords me the opportunity for little cooking and going out as well. This week I only need to plan a few meals for myself with 'planned-overs' for Leo on evenings I will be with friends.

Thursday, I am making meatloaf. The thing I like about meatloaf is once you get used to making it, you can start substituting ingredients for different tastes. I have included a link to a basic recipe, but mine will probably be much different as I plan on adding shredded squash as part of meat, oatmeal instead of bread crumbs, dried onion and green peppers, and a bit of hot pepper sauce.

I am still waiting to hear from the cardiologist, so I am still relying on the kindness of friends and loved ones to get around.


Once again it's Wedding Chicken (I think this is the last of it!)

Instant Potatoes


Spinach salad


I'm scheduled to help at the Thrivent Financial Open House. Meal is included, so Leo can take me, get his meal, and pick me up.


Scheduled to go the zoo with developmentally disabled church group (pass due to health issues) or assist with making and serving our senior lunch at church. Since I've opted for the luncheon, there will be leftovers or frozen pizza for supper.
