Menu Planning Madness, Part 2

As promised, here is my finished menu for next week. I think it's a good first attempt- hopefully, I'll get better as time goes on. This week, there are only two double duty foods, ie, foods that you make once, use twice- in this case, salad and pinto beans. I'm terrible at finding uses for leftover pinto beans. I always make a pound at a time, and we generally have no problem eating them as-is until they're gone, but I would like to have a few recipes up my sleeve to do something different with them. This week, I'm trying a chili- pretty unimaginative, but at least a little different. And, yes, we eat well. Husband doesn't feel it counts as a meal unless there are three items on the table, and I try to oblige, because, well, I love him, and I love food.
