Happy Monday! Remember last week when I said that I didn’t have anything going on? I should have just kept my mouth shut, because I jinxed myself or something. Hubby got sick on Tuesday afternoon and stayed home sick until Friday. Somehow though – fingers crossed – the rest of us managed to stay well. Phew! So this week I have tons of things on my to-do list. There is no time for anyone to get sick, okay?
Unscheduled illnesses aside, the menu for the week went fine. Hubby obviously was not up for grilling the veggie burgers, so I just tossed together a salad from things we had on hand. The sloppy joes in the slow cooker were the definite winner for the week. I just took the Pioneer Woman recipe and made a few tweaks. I browned 2 pounds of beef on the stove, ran the veggies through the food processors, and threw that and everything else in the slow cooker. I did add a bit more tomato sauce, then let it cook for about 6 hours on low. It made enough to have leftovers for lunch this week.
Here’s what’s on my meal plan this week:
lunch – leftover sloppy joes, leftover chicken and rice
snack – apples, carrots and ranch dip, cheese, oranges

Monday – veggie burgers on the grill, french fries
Tuesday – pineapple chicken stir fry with rice
Wednesday – loaded baked potatoes, salad
Thursday – pot roast, mashed potatoes, frozen corn
Friday – taco pizza (with refried beans as the sauce, as suggested by a reader!)
Saturday – steaks on the grill, asparagus pesto pasta
