Menu Monday, What to Eat?

Welcome to my first ever Menu Monday! Let's see what my family is going to eat this week! I do all of my menu planning and grocery shopping only twice a month, so this shouldn't be too hard for me. All i have to do is type out what I already have planned, right? We will see.

Something I like to do is plan on certain days to make extra meat and then turn the meat into something else the next night. This saves time, money, and food. You will notice I did that this week with the pot roast, and again with the chicken.
