Menu Plan Monday - Soup Week!

Hey friends! Welcome back!!
Did you get to see my Week 1 Results from the 14 Week Home Organization Challenge?? I'm really looking forward to the next 13 weeks! It's such a great feeling clearing out clutter, and items we don't need or use anymore!

This week's menu has a lot of soups! I didn't even realize it when I was planning, but when I went to type them up for this week, I noticed we have 3 nights where I have some type of soup planned. I am totally okay with that, though. Winter has finally showed up here! We got a taste of snow yesterday, and a lot more is in the forecast for the weekend! Perfect soup weather if you ask me!
We also have a birthday this week! Our sweet #2 will be turning the big 5 tomorrow!! He has requested his current favorite meal, so that is what we are having! I sadly do not have any photos this week, but I do have a couple recipe links. I will update with photos as I take them during the week!
On to the menu:

Leftovers - Tonight's leftovers include chili and lasagna from this weekend
I try to have leftovers every Monday. This is a pretty busy day for us, so leftovers make it a much smoother dinner routine. It's also a great way to clean out the fridge and make sure there is no waste!

Chicken noodle soup & hot chocolate (kiddo's choice!)
Homemade French bread (Everyone loves this bread! It's quick, easy, and delicious!)
Birthday cake for dessert (And breakfast Wednesday!)
Taco Soup - This is such an easy recipe to double! We'll be making one for the freezer, too!
Pork tenderloin ( I haven't decided how I will cook it yet)
Steamed broccoli
Brown rice
My kiddos love to make their own! Everyone gets just what they want ;)
Chicken & Wild Rice Soup (Trying out THIS recipe)
I will probably make some more bread, too!

Spaghetti with lemon-thyme meatballs (I will update with the recipe and photos)
Salad with vinaigrette

Breakfasts here are usually eggs and toast, oatmeal, or pancakes
Lunches are sandwiches, mac & cheese, or leftovers from the night before
