Menu Plan Monday - April 13

I watched a video last night that shows how to make homemade potato chips. More and more restaurants are offering homemade chips because they are - well - delicious. If you are interested in trying this yourself, watch the following video. As a side-note: I don't know why you couldn't try this with sweet potatoes to sneak in extra vitamins.

Here's what I am planning to serve my family this week:


Wisconsin Potato Cheese Soup (recipe below)
BBQ Pork Chops


Meat Loaf
Mashed Potatoes
Green Beans


Chicken Noodle Casserole
Mixed Veggies
Homemade Bread


Pizza & Pop

Friday (Jonathon's Birthday)

Taco Bar
Birthday Cake


Burgers (including veggie)
Potato Salad


On Your Own
