Menu planning dud!

This past month I've been a menu planning dud. My poor family has suffered because of it, so I'm getting back on the wagon. Everyone is happier when they know what's for dinner. Mark cooks breakfast every morning before school and work so I don't worry about that meal...just keep him stocked up on different breakfast supplies. I've decided that one day a week I will try a recipe that I've never made before. Gotta have some fun experimenting on this big group. I will post my weekly menu on here every Monday. Thursday night dinners are always way easy because Mark goes riding. The cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries is a peace offering to my family for dessert tonight. Everyone that saw it in my cart at Sams Club were drooling over it...glad it had a lid! ;o)

Monday
tacos- chicken and beef with homemade salsa
Tuesday
Flank Steak, grilled seasoned potato slices, corn on the cob
Wednesday
Spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread
Thursday
Grilled hotdogs, potato salad, chips
Friday
Date night...eat out..kids fend for themselves
Saturday
Ham steaks, steamed baby potatoes and carrots, green beans
Sunday
*new recipe...Cream cheese crock-pot chicken, homemade creamed corn, rice, rolls
Gotta go make the salsa. We're having an early dinner so we can be to Cole's baseball game by 5:30

It all sounds good, Jolene! I've been doing really well with planning and feeding us lately, being home sure helps! I think I'm going to start posting our menus for the week on the fridge. :)
