Menu Plan Monday: 3/14 - 3/20

Usually the Spring Forward time change is difficult for me. Not this year! I woke up feeling rested and ready to tackle chores. That's a good thing because I have quite a bit I want to accomplish around the house today. I've made my to-do list and have already crossed a few things off the list so far this morning.

Anyone else feeling especially motivated today? What's on your to-do list?

Here's what's cooking in our house this week, most things thanks to our church meal swap. We've put a few in the freezer over the last couple of weeks when we had other dinner plans, but we're pulling some out this week and putting them into the rotation.

Monday: King Ranch Chicken (made by E), corn

Tuesday: Our Anniversary! :) We're grabbing pizza at the local parlor before bible study.

Wednesday: cheeseburgers, french fries
Thursday: Beef & Noodles (made by E), mashed potatoes, mixed veggies
Friday: Manicotti (made by J), green beans
Saturday:  TBA (whatever H made)

Sunday: TBA (something from Sunday meal-swap pickup)

My contribution to meal swap this week was a recipe from Kristan over at The Stepford Wife. It's called Dad's Pork Chops & Rice. A huge thanks to Kristan for sharing this recipe and for answering the questions I had along the way!

This recipe was really fun to make! It lends itself easily to the assembly line process, making it perfect for meal swap. Each batch made enough to feed 2 families in our group.


  1. Yummy! Looks delicious! :)

    My to-do list is packed. Shopping, painting, Project Simplify (simple mom blog), garage sale prep, steam clean the couch, mend a zipper, lots of sewing...

  2. Those pork chops look tasty and I don't normally like such things. I might have to try this one out!

  3. Happy Anniversary!
    I love meal swaps! It is so fun to try someone else's cooking and get ideas. And I definitely love having several homemade frozen meals in my freezer. At least one of my meals a week get's doubled so one meal can be frozen.
