Menu Planning Monday

Last week, it's safe to say -- life just got in the way of our menu planning. Between late appointments, a house filled with the crud and last minute birthday party invites, there were a few things on our menu that didn't get cooked, or eaten. So we are making up for that this week. Hey, I don't mind ... they still sound really good, and its a few less meals I have to buy things for!!

Monday: Grilled Chicken with Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Tuesday: Spaghetti with Homemade Meat Sauce and Garlic Bread

Wednesday: Tuscan Grilled Pork Chops with asparagus and potatoes cooked in chicken broth

Thursday: Caribbean Fish Tacos [but instead of the slaw filling, we are going to use avocado and this mango pineapple salsa]

Friday: Grilled Marinated Steak with Tomato Pita Salad

Saturday: Either a Pig Picking [birthday party] or something quick for the kids

Sunday: Pollo con Queso with brown rice and vegetables

Really, the only thing I'm slightly worried about this week are the fish tacos -- but I'm not going to let that stop me from making them! They SOUND amazing ... but given our availability of "fresh" fish -- which is NONE -- I can only hope they turn out as good as they sound. If not, we may be hunting some down to enjoy in a few weeks when we're actually in the Caribbean!

Do you have a menu plan for the week? Make sure you go over and link up with Elizabeth and Jane ... check out what other people are cooking up, see who's dinner table you might want to crash, and link up what you are cooking/eating, too!


  1. I'm coming over for dinner haha! I do meal plan and it makes things so much easier.

  2. Wow, all these sound wonderful. I need to put more thought into my meals, especially now that my husband is home! I can't help but feel sorry for him! I hope everything turns out as planned with your menu this week!

  3. Wow I am impressed!!! I have no idea what we are eating tonight - let alone the rest of the week! Everyone says planning ahead helps save money

  4. I am sooo coming to your house for dinner! Those potatoes cooked in broth look amazing. And, those fish tacos! Yum!
