Menu Plan Monday ~ October 6

I am really struggling with planning (and sticking to plans) for dinners.  School nights are getting the best of me with extracurriculars.  I need to find some balance.  Last week I did pretty good though, I not only made some great meals, but was even able to make some "extras" to stretch for other meals.  I doubled the black bean recipe below so that I could freeze some for future use, and also kept some for pizza next week.  I also made more Tikka Masala than usual for a leftover night.  I just need to stick to the plan, and make homemade meals each night.  I need to find meals to fit each night, especially the busy ones!  And I want to keep loading up that deep freeze!

Here's what we were eating last week ::

Homemade Pizza (with everything...fresh garlic, onions, peppers, pepperoni & bacon..YUM)
Spaghetti Carbonara
Black Bean Burritos
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
"Best" Hamburgers (on pretzel buns!)
