menu plan monday

I usually write my menu plan monday post as I go along… I don’t actually begin with a plan. Sad but true. This week is not different. I do know what I have on hand so that is part of what determines what we’ll have for our meals. I have two big bags of frozen chicken breasts. I am thinking chicken a couple of nights… some sirloin burger patties from Sam’s. So we’ll grill burgers one night. The salmon for matt… I made that for his Sunday lunch. I want to try a new recipe from a bloggy friend. I don’t really have any of the ingredients so it will require a trip to the store!

Monday… Marinated/grilled chicken, rice, green beans, salad

Tuesday… grilled burgers, salad, pretzels

Wednesday… Baked potato for me and kids (with toppings of choice), Salmon and salad for Matt.

Thursday… Beef Lombardi from Jenileigh

Friday… Chicken & potatoes layered in the crockpot. I saw the idea on this site!

I’d like to try this out over next weekend, I saw it at Sandra’s.

I guess that does it. Have a great week!

    You have more of a plan than I do, haha! 😀

  7. I bookmarked that Beef Lombardi recipe last week to try too! 🙂 It sounds like we have a similar style of menu planning…my goal for September is to plan more ahead, so I’m working on a list of favorites by main ingredients…we’ll see how it goes. Looks like a delicious week at your house, I hope you have a great week!

    Take care,

    Yum, it all looks good to me! I didn’t plan any grill out meals here for most of the week because of the rain. I love grilled chicken, yummy. Where are those sirloin burgers in Sam’s – in a bag or box in the frozen upright freezers? I’ll have to look for those. Matt is being so good with the fish and salmon, good for him!

    Hope you guys have a wonderful week!
