Menu Plan Monday for April 13th

I can't believe it's Monday again already.

Monday - Reruns of our roast chicken dinner from Easter
Tuesday - Buttermilk waffles or pancakes
Wednesday - Pasta and garlic bread
Thursday - Crispy garlic chicken cutlets (a new recipe!)
Friday - Burgers and seasoned fries
Saturday - Whiskey pork chops (a new recipe!)
Sunday - Fried chicken and cream gravy

I did okay with last week's menu, though I moved our baked chicken to Easter and skipped the whiskey pork chops (in favor of some take-out, when I was buried in cupcake land). I wasn't thrilled with the way my buttermilk-powder pancakes turned out, which is why this week's Brinner might be pancakes again, to make up for my bad memories. I also had a super rough time with the chicken yesterday. It just did not want to get done! We wound up having dinner at 8:15. Yikes! Needless to say, I was so starving that I completely forgot to take pictures, but I do swear I will be posting my recipe for Stuffed Baked Chicken and Gravy later on today to make up for it!

So what's on your menu this week? Don't forget to share it with the Org Junkie, who hosts the busiest blog meme I've ever seen with Menu Plan Mondays!

I love your blog! Very cool! I am trying out menu planning myself... so hard to stick to!

Gee, thanks! I'm blushing! But seriously, menu planning really helps me save money on my groceries. I'm way less prone to buying "impulse" items to make dinners that I never get around to!

How do you share the Menu Plan Monday? I always menu plan and you're save A TON of money!!

Today's the exception (because yesterday was Easter), but usually late on Sunday night, Org Junkie hosts a Mr. Linky on her site where hundreds of bloggers go link their "Menu Plan Monday" posts. After you post yours, you can look at who else has posted their menus and find new recipes or new fun blogs to read. Since my blog is still new. I think I read that the Menu Plan Monday linky will start around 7 AM PST today.
