Menu Plan Monday

Our big news is that since the van purchase we haven't eaten out. Gus and I did not even have our traditional weekly Wendy's date while Reese was at speech! Since Reese had an ophthalmologist appointment at 4:30pm and we decided to save gas and time by consolidating our errands too. So...we decided to eat out. Reese chose...McDonald's, I know not my first choice for our only eating out occasion.
Monday: Reese's choice--McDonald's
Tuesday: Stir Fry with brown rice
Wednesday: Enchiladas (a la green sauce Old El Paso recipe), spanish rice
Thursday: Fried rice, egg rolls
Friday: Ham casserole
Saturday: fajitas, Homemade refried beans: Seriously I don't know what took me so long to do this..easy peasy! Soak pinto beans overnight, drain, cover with fresh water, simmer 90 minutes or so, drain. In a skillet saute onion, add beans, taco seasoning (when I run out of my costco jug I'll just use cumin, chili powder and garlic powder), mix and smash with silicone spatula...voila, YUM!
Sunday: spaghetti and meatballs

See what everyone else is eating at Organizing Junkie!

I love making homemade refried beans! And they freeze so well too, which is handy. Do you make your egg rolls or buy them? Hubby is a big egg roll fan, but we generally only have them via take out. ;)

Way to go for not eating out after your awesome new van purchase! How are you liking it? I've been meaning to ask. I got sick with nasty food poisoning and was down and out for a bit...not fun!
