Menu for this week

I see that others post their menus for the week so I guess I will join that trend. I have my order placed for Peapod (where they deliver the groceries to my kitchen! LOVE that man...), and I hit the store tonight for a couple of things that we needed. Here's the plan (which of course is subject to change):

Monday - BBQ pulled pork in the crockpot, rolls, cole slaw, salad
Tuesday - Sticky roast chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy
Wednesday - Chicken pot pie, salad
Thursday - Good salad (greens, leftover chicken, blue cheese, craisins, glazed walnuts, madarin oranges, with a balsamic vinaigrette), warm rolls or bakery bread
Friday - leftovers (we have small group)
Saturday - Spaghetti and meatballs, salad, Italian bread or rolls
Sunday - baked or BBQ pork chops (depending on the weather), buttered noodles, broccoli
Monday - Tacos, salad

All of the meats are what we have in the freezer already (I have the meatballs already made and the taco meat cooked and frozen). I try to get a few meals out of the roast chicken, thus the chicken, chicken pot pie and the salad. I'll fix up a bag of cleaned greens for the salads and we'll work out of that all week. Oh - I also picked up a 20 lb. bag of potatoes for $4 out near my in-laws. There are a bunch of farms on the east end of the island and this one place has 20 lb. bags of potatoes at the end of their driveway with a cash box sitting there. Each time we go, we pick up more potatoes and I'll try to use them up a lot over the next few weeks. So possibly one night I'll do a batch of baked potatoes and I think I'll try my hand at potato salad (if anyone has a good recipe, let me know).
