Menu Plan August 22-28

Can y'all believe it's the last full week of August? This year is flying by so quickly! I, for one, am looking forward to the cooler weather of fall. I love the colors and smells of autumn in addition to the more moderate temps.

Tomorrow I have a ladies' night out with ladies from my church. We meet at a restaurant and share some encouragement and fellowship. Charles usually invites some of the husbands and kids over while we ladies go out. They generally settle for pizza, but I think I'll make some bread and put out some cold cuts and cheese for sandwiches. I always try to have a dessert or munchies on hand, too. So even though it's ladies' night out, I try to keep the men and kids happy.

Now on to the menu plan for the week. I'm going to try some new recipes.

Sausage veggie calzones

Ladies' Night Out - sandwiches for the men

Cheesy Chicken Lasagna (new)

Herbed pork loin and potatoes in the crockpot (new)

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes

Chicken fajitas

Grilled portobellos and veggies
