Menu Planning Monday ~ October 5th

Here is our menu for the week (we are not so sure about our plans for the weekend, so I am just planning meals for Monday through Thursday):

Monday - Taco soup - we already ate it. Yum! We like to eat it with a dollop of sour cream and we scoop it up with tortilla chips.

Tuesday - Three Cheese Manicotti served with veggies and toasted sourdough garlic bread.

Wednesday - Breaded pesto chicken served over linguine with Rhodes dinner rolls.

Thursday - Chicken and rice casserole (we didn't eat it last week)

Check out other menus at orgjunkie!


  1. This looks like a great meal plan. I have been menu planning for the last several months. I have been searching for some fun recipes to add and i think i will just add this entire meal plan! thank you!

  2. Hey Lindsey -
    Love love love all the things you have been posting about these days! Thanks. I have one question about your boxes - the organizing system .... Being an organizer, I am wondering if you like the box system, and if you would prefer clear boxes - also, what is in the boxes? Did you pack up the odds and ends in the house and put them in there, is it like sheets and towels type stuff, clothes? I am looking for a good system for our garage and think this might be a good one, but just wanted to know a few things 1st.

    Thanks!!! Also, we would love to get together with you guys sometime soon. Let me know what works for you!

  3. Hey Anna! I'm glad you enjoy my posts! I like writing them! =) I do like the box system. It will be even nicer when we are finished getting them filled (we are still sorting through some of our stuff). I kind of like that I can't see inside of them because it looks neater - out of sight, out of mind. It is also cheaper to go with the cardboard filing boxes. You can put anything you want in them, that's the beauty of it! Here are some examples of what we have:

    We have a...
    ... "wire box" for all misc. wires that we may need someday.
    ... "candle box" for candles and decorating stuff that I use seasonally.
    ... "Keepsake box" one for me and one for Andrew. We just have things that are special to us in them.

    You could use one for sheets, towels, clothes... anything! It would be great for your garage. You may want to get plastic bins though, unless your garage is heated.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    We would love to get together with you two! We have some free weekends in October. Are you free on Oct. 17th? Would you want to come over here?

  4. Thanks for the info!
    The 17th is a busy weekend for us, we have a friend coming in from out of town! Any other dates work for you, I think we are free the weekend after that. Let me know!
