    Tonight we are having Meatless Monday with Veggie burgers on wheat rolls, pasta salad (or mac & cheese - which is what the little people will probably vote for), steamed carrots.

    Thanks for sharing your meal plans Meredith and Linda! Enjoy that Mexican bakery, Meredith!

    jdouglas13 - I love being able to stretch a whole chicken into multiple meals. I need to make one so I have some homemade chicken broth for all the soup I see in future menus now that Fall is making an appearance.

    ascherer - I added the link for the veggie soup recipe in the original post. It's in the WRAL Recipe database. It will not let me post the direct link here but click on the link below and enter Vegetable Soup" in the Name section.

    Tonight is another night out at the laundromat so dinner with be sandwiches with chips and grapes while we wait for the laundry to finish. I'm hoping to convince him that we should go to the Mexican Bakery again for dessert.

    I can't remember the order, but the rest of the week we're having...

    - Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and lemon pepper green beans

    - Creamy chicken enchiladas with side salads

    - Chicken and Veggie Kabobs with rice

    - Goulash with Caesar salads

    We baked a pan of brownies last night so that will be his ongoing dessert throughout the week :-)

    Faye, I'll be over for dinner on Friday! :)

    Last night we did have the roast chicken (obviously defrosted in time) with gravy, baked potatoes, roasted acorn squash and some of The Princess' green beans. We will definitely be getting a night two out of it in the form of homemade chicken stock and chicken something soup.

    Still working on a menu idea for tonight...
