Menu Plan Monday

I haven't been planning many menus lately, because things have been so hectic with schedules and what not, but I am vowing to get back into it. This week I've planned on simple breakfasts, oatmeal, eggs, cereal; lunches of leftovers; and some fun dinners, as well as some crockpot meals for Wednesday and Thursday which are both long days for me. It's heavy on the chicken this week, but they had a great sale at Lamb's Thriftway that I just couldn't pass up on. I love that store! It reminds me of the grocery stores of my youth, and while they don't have the hugest selection of organics, they do support local products, which I love, and they are super duper friendly, which, lets face it, goes a long way.

Here's the dinner plan (and I'll let you know how well I follow through)

Monday- Alton Brown's Lentil Soup
Tuesday- Meatloaf* with steamed Broccoli and Kale
Wednesday- Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa
Thursday- Crockpot Boneless Chicken Cacciatore
Friday- Roasted Chicken with roasted sweet potatoes

Roasted Chicken is one of Eli & I's favorites. For a while after we got married we would make it like, once a week. We haven't had it in a while so this will be a nice Friday night. :)

*Anyone have a good Meatloaf recipe? A coworker was eating leftovers last week and I just got a hankerin' for it. Not my usual fair, but I thought what the hay, some times comfort food is what you need to get through the work week, right?
