Menu Plan 11/18: Chicken & Rice with cheese sauce, Pasta, + more!

Sunday: Tacos with homemade seasoning (if we get home in time) or dinner on the road. We brought sandwiches with us and ate those at home.

Monday: Chicken and Rice with Homemade Cheese Sauce, veggies.

Tuesday: Homemade Hamburger Helper pasta, veggies, rolls (regular Butterhorns and gluten free Butterhorns). Leftover carnitas (from the freezer).

Wednesday: Crispy Ranch Chicken or Parmesan Garlic Chicken, Easy Roasted Potatoes & Carrots. Baked Chicken Drumsticks, boiled red potatoes, veggies.

Thursday: Happy Turkey Day! For what are you thankful?

Friday: ?? - leftovers?

Saturday: ??

For breakfast, we each grab what we want: waffles, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, cold cereal, yogurt, etc.

For lunch, I usually eat leftovers or something simple, like grilled cheese or quesadillas. My husband eats a sandwich or leftovers - he takes his lunch to work.
