Menu Plan Monday

This is my first week participating in Menu Plan Monday at A friend of mine referred me to this blog several months ago, and I really have been impressed with the number of bloggers who post up their menus. I have found that the more planning I do, the less money is spent. No more "last minute" trips to the grocery store. Ok, well, less trips anyway.

My menu planning is for 2 adults and 3 children under 10 approximately 3x per week. I try to keep our meals balanced and healthy, which is sometimes a bigger challenge than it looks!
Monday: Pot Roast w Potatos & Green Beans (Pot roast will be made in DCB in microwave)
Tuesday: Mom's Enchiladas (Made w leftover pot roast)
Wednesday: Pork Tenderloin with Port & Cherry Sauce, Mashed Potatos, Peas, & Salad. (Little one is turning 3, so BF's parents will be over and we are going to have Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert.)
Thursday: Host Appreciation Party - I am trying an appetizer, main dish, and a dessert recipe from the new Season's Best Recipe Collection from PC.
Friday: Rotini w Ground Turkey (Turkey already cooked up and frozen)
Saturday: Pizza night
