Menu Planning Monday: Back in the game!

I have not followed a menu in awhile due to having a new baby girl 2 weeks ago. We had so many people bless us with food after the baby was born, so I was able to get the rest that I needed. While it was a great blessing to have some time off, it feels so good to sit down and plan a menu again. I have been out of sorts and i'm ready to get back in the game. I'm feeling great and it's time to get things back in order.

What has me most excited is that for this weeks menu i'm only going to spend $40.00! That means lots of leftover money to spend on any great deals I find.

Congrats on the new baby.

Congratulations on your new baby! She's beautiful! I know what you mean about being thankful for the food people bring over and the break from cooking...but also being grateful to be back in the swing of things again! I was always like that after having a baby!

It is good to get back in the swing of things, isn't it? I'm glad you are feeling good, and so happy that Anna is doing good too.

Your menu sounds so yummy! I hope you'll have lots of willing helpers.

I'm so glad you all like the casserole. It is our kids' favorite!
