Menu Plan Monday

Last week, I was able to find stretch our leftovers into new meal ideas, so some meals are carrying over to this week's menu since they never got made. I also had more meal ideas from what I have on hand, so I planned dinners until next week Wednesday. I can usually come up with breakfast and lunch ideas pretty easily for those days but I have not listed them here now. So without further adieu, here is what we most likely will be eating this week!

  1. I'm making Pinto Beans this week too.

    You have a terrific menu planned.

  2. Thanks Rona!
    How do you cook your pinto beans? I just do mine in the crockpot. My husband likes to roll them up with rice on tortillas, but I like them over rice with onions, tomatoes, cheese, sometimes olive oil or sour cream, etc. A friend gave me this idea long ago, and it is so healthy and frugal too!!
