Menu Plan Monday

Here is my Menu Plan for this week. I am hoping to use up some of the roasts we have in our freezer over the next couple of weeks. We attended several graduation Open Houses this weekend, so I didn't do any cooking. I think it may be this way for the next month. (smile)
Monday: Spaghetti with salad and garlic bread
Tuesday: Shredded Beef Tacos with rice and beans (This recipe uses my husband's favorite sauce El Pato. It has a wonderful flavor and we make a dip using cream cheese softened mixed with either a can or half of can (depending on how hot you like it) of El Pato and served with tortilla chips.
Wednesday: Beef Dip Sandwiches with fruit
Thursday: 40 Clove Chicken served with noodles and salad this recipe is from Susanne. Laura also tried it and I quote, "it was absolutely delicious", so I have a cut up whole chicken in my freezer and I have been wanting to try this recipe.
Friday: Kid's Night Out!

The menu sounds great - especially the shredded beef tacos.

I've been wanting to try 40 clove chicken too, but can't get my husband on board. Maybed I'll just try it and see what he thinks!

Have a great week!
