Angie Gets Organized

This is why I'm trying to get organized...for my family. I am a strong believer in family meal time, but I know that without a little planning, it will be hard to keep us all together. It will also be easier to spend money foolishly on prepared foods or fast food. I love trying out new recipes, so this is my site to pass on recipes, while also organizing them into a meal plan. I hope it helps you to keep your family together. I would love to hear what others are having for dinner, or see a new recipe or two! Feel free to leave me some feedback in the comments section...at least then I would know someone is reading this!

It's not gourmet...just good food!

Dinner This Week

Still easing back into my menues...didn't prepare the taco-stuffed shells last week, so guess what we're having tonight? Along with that, here's what we've been eating this week:
Pepperoni Chicken: cut a slice in the side of a boneless chicken breast and stuff with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Repeat for as many breasts as your family will eat. Cover chicken with pizza sauce and bake at 350 degrees for 30 min. Add more mozzarella cheese 5 min. before finished baking, if desired. Serve with orzo pasta and a salad.
Ham and Cheese Quiche
Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and gravy, corn on the cob
Homemade Pizza
Breaded chicken cutlets (on sale this week at Giant), mashed potatoes (or starch of some sort), and veggie
Plan ahead for your family and enjoy a meal together!

What we're eating this week

Since it's summer, and too difficult to plan for anything (other than fun events!!!), I'm trying to ease myself back into monthly menus. For now, I'm just doing week to week. So, here's what we're eating this week.

Ham, Cheese, Pepperoni, and pizza sauce paninis

Baked Spaghetti and salad

Apricot Chicken (this was on last week's menu, but we didn't get to it, so we're definitely having it this week!)

Taco-filled Pasta Shells: a stuffed shell for Mexican lovers!

Cheddar Turkey Casserole: basically just rice, cheddar cheese soup, peas, and chicken (substituted for the turkey).

This has already been a crazy week for us...I'm scheduled to be out 4 nights this week!! And my husband is scheduled to be out the other night! This is why planning is so important to me, because I never want to sacrifice our family meals together. If I plan it right, we are still eating together every night.

Happy Eating!
