Menu Plan Monday - Using What I've Got

This is a part of  Laura's Menu Plan Monday at . It's the end of the month in my house which usually means I try to use what I've got on hand to feed my family. I try to make my grocery trip the last week of the month as short as possible, and so we eat a lot of leftovers (I hate to throw away food).

T- Breakfast for dinner: eggs, piggies for those who eat them, and pancakes

W- Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup, big salad

Th-Pork chops and roasted veggies for the kids; pasta sauce primavera and salad for DH and I

F- Pizza for kids; we are going out

Sat- Lo roast, rolls, green beans, mashed potatoes for kids; LO chili, soup or salad for DH and I

Sun- Easter: My Homemade Chicken fried Rice and Happy Herbivore's Mango Sweet Chili Noodles from Everyday Happy Herbivore

We don't celebrate Easter since we're not religious, and this year, for the first time, we're not dying eggs or doing Easter Baskets. I am making this cute Brownie dessert, however.
It was posted to a Pampered Chef Online Party that I am attending by a friend of my sister's. She's a great girl, and if you're into Pampered Chef or like cool kitchen cookware and gizmos, check out her website at I will post my own photo after I make them.

Monday- LO rice, fish sticks, veggies, fruit, and salad
