Menu plan for the week of October 30

By popular demand, I'm back with another menu post.

And by popular demand, I mean one person mentioned in passing that she used to look forward to reading my menu plan posts every Monday.

I'm here to serve.

When last I menu-plan-posted, I had started planning four weeks of meals at once, and I was loving it.  Menu planning kind of fell apart at the end of May and into June, because entropy, but now I'm back at it, and it makes my life so much easier.  I plan two weeks worth of meals, and repeat, for a total of four weeks at a time.

Here's what's on the menu this week:

*Whose idea was it to do a crockpot recipe on the first Monday of the rotation?  A crockpot recipe, I might add, that requires chicken to be thawed and cream cheese, that we did not yet have, to be added.  That is too much for a Monday. That person should be fired.

**The other day, we were eating supper, and I said, look, everybody!  There are carrots on the table!  Because that's what I say*** when I want my people to eat the vegetables that are on the table.  And one of the children kind of sighed with his posture, and I said, you'd rather have broccoli.  And the kid nodded.  And I said, or asparagus, or Brussels sprouts, or cauliflower.  And the kid agreed.  And the husband was incredulous.  He couldn't wrap his mind around someone liking grilled or roasted broccoli more than raw carrots.  And I, too, was incredulous, that my kid's father didn't already know this about the kid, having lived with said kid for all of said kid's life.

***Well, I don't always say carrots.  I will say the name of the vegetable that is actually on the table.  Because if I said, look everybody, there are carrots on the table, and there were, in fact, no carrots on the table, that would undermine my credibility.
