Menus on Mondays: Weekly Menu Plan for 12/10/12

It’s gonna be hard to come up with a menu plan as great as last week’s!  The Tex-Mex Black Eyed Pea Casserole, Dirty Rice, and Spinach and Spaghetti Squash are all new family favorites in our house.  Who knew that eating such a healthy diet could be so darn tasty?  I’m going to try and keep the theme of healthy home-cooking rolling along this week.  I hope that you’ll find some new favorites along with us!

If you’ve made something from a Menus on Mondays and loved (or hated) it, let us know!  Feedback of all kinds is appreciated!
