Menu Plan Monday - Lost and forgotten

I am still participating in the eat from the pantry challenge this week. I love getting creative and using what I have. As a result, I have been digging through my recipes and have found some that we had loved but forgotten about. One of my favorites is a Kraft Foods Pork stir fry recipe and zucchini chips. (Both are at the bottom of this post.) I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Monday: Grilled chicken breast w/onions and peppers, grilled asparagus, Roasted potatoes

Tuesday: Fried fish, perogies, salad, green beans

Wednesday: Leftover night- if its in the fridge, you can have it. But mama is NOT cookin!

Thursday: Pork stir fry with rice

Friday: Pizza Night!

Saturday: BBQ pork chops, Asparagus, Zucchini chips, mac and cheese
