Menu Plan Monday

Here is this week's menu.  I am trying a new recipe tonight that I found in a Southern Living holiday magazine at my parents' house.  We just got home from a visit with them--we left Thursday after cross country practice, and we came home just a while ago.  One of my grandmothers is in the hospital, so we visited her.  I also went to Target and did a little bit of Christmas shopping.  Julie had a home ec sewing lesson--helping to make a Snow White costume for Leah, and all of the children had a relaxing time at my parents' house.

Brunswick stew.  I would like to have homemade bread with this, but I don't think I have time to buy groceries and make bread before supper.  I will pick up some bread at Kroger.
leftover stew, hopefully homemade bread (lunch), and cereal, toast and/or oatmeal for supper
shrimp scampi
bean soup--I never got to cook this last week.
spaghetti with homemade sauce from the freezer
leftovers from the soup and spaghetti

Brunswick Stew

I am going to try to remember to link up with Menu Monday at on Monday morning.  Please visit that site for lots of menu ideas.  Plus the entire site is an organizational inspiration!
