Menu Plan Monday 10/5-10/11

It's that time again (already?)! And this week (as all weeks are) will be a crazy one! I am starting my new job today, and wouldn't you know it, mr.pate is scheduled to work almost all nights at Starbucks! Ugh! So we will barely see each other, and I will be carting dinner up to starbucks several nights, but its only one week. So here is the plan:

Monday: Brown Sugar, Soy & Worcestershire Pork Chops, green beans and brown rice

Tuesday: Asian Tomato Beef in the Crock Pot

Wednesday: Dinner at Dustin's (this is mr.pate's twin brother- i forgot to mention this for those of you who dont actually know me!)

Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie

Friday: Salmon, mashed potatoes and green beans

Saturday: Out or leftovers

Sunday: Lunch at Peppers! and dinner is with our Dinner for 8 group!
