Something New: Menu Plan Monday!

For quite a while, I've been planning our meals two weeks at a time. Since we are working hard to be wise with our money, I'm going to change our strategy and start planning one week at a time, using the grocery deals as a guide. However, this week I didn't do that. Since I use Organizing Junkie all the time for menu ideas, I figured it was time to participate. Here goes!

Monday: Leftover Mexican Stack Up (Great recipe for large groups; I'm going to try to get permission to post the recipe from its owner)

Tuesday: Chick-fil-A (Our local CFA offers church bulletin night. If you bring in your bulletin, you get a free chicken sandwich or chicken nuggets as long as you purchase a side and medium drink. You can hardly beat a meal out for 3 for about $6!)

Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner/Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches and grapes (This meal has to be fast; we have to get to church by 6!)

Thursday: Barbecue chicken in the crockpot, corn, baked beans, and salad

Friday: Hot ham and cheese sandwiches (See recipe below), chips

Saturday: Leftover sandwiches!

Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches
1 pkg of small dinner rolls OR Hawaiian bread dinner rolls
Thinly sliced ham ( I usually use one package)
Thinly sliced swiss cheese
Slice the rolls in half using a bread knife.
Place the ham on the rolls evenly and cover with sliced cheese. Place other half of rolls on top.

Mix together:
1/2 stick (or little less) of softened butter
1/2 tsp. poppy seeds
1/2 tsp. of onion flakes
1/8 tsp. of ground mustard

Spread evenly on top of rolls. Cover with foil. Place in the oven at 350, covered in foil, for about 15-20 minutes, until cheese and butter has melted. You may want to remove the foil halfway through cooking time.
