Menu Plan Monday

We have been doing really well about not grabbing food out when we're on the go! We actually ended up having leftovers a few times, so we have strayed from the menu plan. But my new planning using the $5 Dinner Mom's menu/grocery list has really been helping.
Monday: Spicy Pork and Cabbage Soba --this is from the Food Matters Cookbook by Mark Bittman using Napa Cabbage, Soba Noodles and only 8 ounces of pork. This cook book has lots of great recipes that use the meat more as an enhancer than the star. This is a new favorite.
Tuesday: Fried Rice and egg rolls (this keeps getting booted for some reason, but we WILL eat it this week for sure!!)
Wednesday: Red Bean and Quinoa Chili from the Feeding your Whole Family cookbook by Cynthia Lair
Thursday: Bean and Butternut Squash Gratin...from Food Matters. This uses only a small amount of sausage, but is so flavorful. It's one of our new favorites.
Friday: probably eat out because my Dad will be visiting.
Saturday: the big 4 year old birthday bash! Lasagna, garlic bread, cesaer salad, cake
