Menu Plan Monday

Posting my weekly menu sure helps keep things running smoothly throughout the week.
And a being prepared to be flexible helps a bunch, too.
Last week, knowing I still had some soups and stew dishes at the ready in my freezer, I scheduled some cooler weather dishes. Also knowing I would be feeding a crowd over the weekend, I thought this would work out great!
But, as each day progressed, the weather forecaster upped the temps. And so, serving chili to a group of hot and sweaty young people, after spending the day running around in 80 degree weather, just wasn't going to work.
Call in the substitutes!  (can you say cold cut sandwiches, carrot sticks and apple slices?)

This week I'm focusing on using up meals I have in the freezer.

Monday - Mexican Rice & Beans
Tuesday - Linguine with Clam Sauce
Wednesday - Chili
Thursday - Venison Stew
Friday - Pizza night
Saturday - Hamburgers
Sunday - Cubed Steak (crockpot meal)

Sorry, no pictures or recipes this week. I'll be working on adding more of those as the weeks progress. I'll be linking up with Menu Plan Monday over at (that's what's keeping me accountable - thanks, Laura!)


  1. We have a ton of venison in the freezer. There is so much, in fact, that I'm not sure what to do with it all! Could you perhaps post your venison recipe?

  2. Hi Heather
    I'm so thankful for my freezer full of venison. And that my family loves it.
    You can see my 'main-stay' recipes here:

    I hope they are helpful. I'm happy to share if you have more questions for me.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Of course you can use the cake ideas - I actually use this book
    I love it because it shows you step by step how to make the cakes and gives you copiable templates at the back of the book. I've just discovered there is another one, so I'm going to get it too!
