Monthly Meal Plan

I know it isn't a new month but our credit card starts over on the 26th, so we base a month on that since we put everything on our credit card and pay it off each month (YAY for money off of our principal on our house). I thought that I would share my monthly meal plan in case anyone wants ideas. I would love to see yours as well.

15th (Sat) - Pork Chops, Flavored Rice, and Veggies
*Pork chops - I like to marinate them in 1/4 cup honey, 1/8 cup cider vinegar, 1/8 tsp ground ginger, 1 clove garlic, minced, and 1 Tbsp soy sauce as long as I can and bake at 350. I may try a new recipe with the pork chops.

16th (Sun) - Spaghetti, Salad, and Garlic Bread
*Spaghetti - I like to saute onions, peppers, garlic, and lean ground beef until cooked, add some spaghetti sauce, and simmer as long as possible. I toss it with some cooked pasta.

17th (Mon) - Leftover Spaghetti

18th (Tues) - Chicken Noodle Dumpling Delight

Of course there could be deviation from this, but I am finding that if I plan out my meals, it really helps. I went ahead and bought all pantry and freezer items for the recipes today and hope to only get fresh stuff each week for the rest of the month.
