Menu: Week of February 21-27

I'm back with a great new menu! Follow along with me!

I'm linking up with I'm an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

Meatless Monday: Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes - Simple and light!
Tuesday: Chicken and Sausage Gumbo - did I ever mention that I was born in New Orleans?
Wednesday: Glazed Pork Chops (serve with your favorite potato dish) - one of my favorite ways to prepare pork chops, marinated then grilled
Thursday: Leftover/Takeover Night - I would recommend the gumbo, it's so good leftover!
Friday: Deep Dish Pepperoni and Jalapeno Pizza
Saturday: Spicy Romano Chicken - a copycat version of one of my favorite Carino's dishes
Sunday: Wontons and Fried Rice - I've never made wontons before, I can't wait to try it out!
Dessert: Texas Sheet Cake - so easy, so good! 

Sounds great, right? Let's get shopping!

The amounts listed here are for a family of 3-4. If you are feeding a larger family, double the amounts that are asterisked. For Menu Plan Explanation, click here. For all of my menu plans, click here.
