Menu Plan Monday April 11, 2011


If you’re not familiar, go here to read about it.

I think I’m going to change my menu plan to a Sunday start. It just works out better for my scheduling. I’ll still link up on Mondays, but this just makes more sense for me, k? k. Here goes…

Sunday: Travis’s birthday, restaurant of his choice
Monday: Swiss Chard Pesto with Whole Grain Angel Hair
Tuesday: Open night… either going out or just grabbing sanwiches – Maybe a trip to the new Sweet Tomatoes that just opened.
Wednesday: Mediterranean Tuna Salad Sandwiches with Kohlrabi Slaw and Green Salad  – I’m going to try a more Mediterranean slaw (as always if it works I’ll share it), but here’s one for apple and kohlrabi that’s delicious!
Thursday: Roasted Chicken breast with Asparagus and Mustard Roasted Potatoes
Friday: The Sopitas de Tortilla dish that I’ve tried to make and just not gotten to for the last three weeks.
Saturday: Something with Collard Greens.  I got them this week and I just have no idea what to do with them.  I’ll update when I figure it out.

Another busy, busy week ahead.  We’ve got music lessons on Monday, Manga Club on Tuesday, I think I might have to go to a client on Thursday, and Friday Haley’s performing at a Relay for Life Event. Phew.  When the heck will I cook? Aaaaand. last week I never got to one or two of the dishes so they’ll be on this week’s menu.

Monday – Linguine with grape tomatoes and Green beans – recipe to come if it works. Update: Yep, it was amazing.
Tuesday – The Sopitas de Tortilla I never got to last week.
Wednesday – Roasted Chicken with Orzo Salad
Thursday – Grilled Steak and Green Salad
Friday – Concession food at the Relay for Life Event
Saturday – I’d like to say “fish”, but I have no idea.
Sunday – Travis’s birthday dinner at the restaurant of his choice

What a sad little menu.  Although the orzo salad is so good you can’t believe it, I get two nights off, and linguine, yum!

I hope you have a great week!

Last week I didn’t do a lot of what I said I would. The Clementine Dressing never got made because we had people over and all the kids ate the whole crate of clementines!  I’m really not complaining, I’m glad they enjoyed them – but then we went out to dinner and made soup another night (it didn’t come out so great, so no recipe) Here’s to this week’s hope that I can do more of what I intend.

Monday – Crockpot Roast with vegetables and wine sauce
Tuesday – Open Mic Night at Halligan’s.  Contact me if you’d like to join us!
Wednesday – Grilled Chicken with Chimmichurri Sauce and a tossed salad
Thursday – Rotelle with Tomato and Goat Cheese Sauce
Friday – Asian Pasta Salad
Saturday – Roasted Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower Saffron Rice
Sunday – Grilled Steaks and vegetables

What are you having?

Menu Plan Monday Dec. 26, 2010

i! If you’re visiting for the first time, welcome!
There’s a great meme called Menu Plan Monday and since I plan my menus weekly anyway, I thought it would be fun to link up with it. If I give someone some inspiration along the way, all the better!

So last week didn’t go exactly as planned.  We wound up having pizza for dinner on Tuesday because we were out Christmas shopping all day and I was exhausted from it, so the Mahi got moved to this week.  DiGiorno pizza was BOGO at Publix, so that’s what we had. Then we were invited to a friend’s house on Christmas Eve, so I didn’t cook then, either.  Also, turkey was on sale, Jim bought one and decided he wanted that for Christmas – unfortunately, he though I took it out of the freezer and I thought he took it out of the freezer and no one had, in fact taken it out of the freezer.  So.  Christmas day we noshed.  To top it off, Jim’s employer gave all the employees a holiday box, with a ham, a turkey and all the trimming (including a 1/4 bushel of the most delicious oranges) – so Boxing Day we had a ham that Jim cooked. Not exactly the week I’d planned, but hey, I’m flexible and it is the holidays… we’ll get back on track in January.

So this week, there are a couple of meals that were supposed to be cooked last week

Monday – Tomato Soup with Salad
Tuesday – Mahi with sesame balsamic
Wednesday – linguini with tomato sauce and salad
Thursday – London Broil and brussels sprouts (I had an idea for the brussels sprouts, if it’s good I’ll post it)
Friday – Roasted Shrimp with Black eyed peas and collard greens and a bottle of Veuve Cliquot that I’ve been saving. I really want some oysters, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen.  We’ll see.
Saturday – Tuna Salad Platters
Sunday – Roasted chicken breast with Saffron rice and peas and salad

Let’s see how much of this I actually stick to… It’s very hard with the holidays and my knee issue.  It’s definitely healing, but it’s taking too long.  Thanks for asking.
:wink:
