Menu Plan Monday ~ March 14, 2011

Check out other menu plans at orgjunkie.com

I haven’t posted my menu plans for the past several weeks, but I have been menu planning. We added a new recipe to our rotation: Easy Cheesy Enchiladas. They really are easy and yummy!

Last week was a whole lot of eating out due to two birthdays. JT’s boyfriend celebrated his 17th birthday with us at our neighborhood diner on Monday. On Wednesday, GW turned a whopping 36 so we took him out to Texas Roadhouse where they brought him free ice cream and the whole restaurant helped us wish him a happy birthday by yelling “Yeehaw!!!” I have a feeling there will be some payback in the near future 🙂

Monday
Supper: Spaghetti, meatballs, garlic toast

Tuesday
Supper: Grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese, green beans

Wednesday
Supper: Sirloin sizzlers, mashed potatoes, corn

Thursday
Supper: YOYO

Friday
We’re heading to South Dakota tonight to celebrate my Mom’s 60th birthday, so the menu planning stops here 🙂

Last week I finally treated myself to a griddle! I’ve never had one and always wanted one. It’s so exciting to be able to cook more than one grilled cheese or pancake at a time. I love cooking GW breakfast, but now I don’t have to dirty three pans!

My chicken drumsticks were a hit last week (and super cheap) so they’re on the menu again this week. The Hearty Hamburger Casserole didn’t go over very well with the kiddos, but that didn’t matter because GW and I ate most of it anyway 🙂

Monday
Supper: Scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage

Tuesday
Supper: Drumsticks, fries, raw veggies

Wednesday
Supper: Grilled peanut butter sandwiches, mac ‘n cheese, green beans (MC suggested the sandwiches which sound a little gross to me, but apparently she loves them. I’ll make some grilled cheese in case the rest of us don’t agree.)

Thursday
Supper: Hamburgers, fries, corn on the cob

Friday
Supper: YOYO

Saturday
Supper: GW and I are going to a hockey game, so the girls are on their own.

Sunday
Supper: Still looking for a new crockpot recipe…

Do I Dust or Vacuum First? will answer those pesky cleaning questions like “How do I clean grease spots in back of the stove?” and “How do you clean a kitchen exhaust fan?”

If you live in the US and want a chance to win this book (completely free of charge), leave a comment with your blog name. I’ll announce the winner next Monday. Good Luck!

Menu Plan Monday ~ January 10, 2011

Christmas with GW’s family was great. Good food, lots of laughs and enough presents for the girls to completely pack the car full. We got home about five hours before the snow started falling and it hasn’t stopped yet.

This is going to be an easy week. The girls have semester break on Friday and they both have plans for the entire weekend, so I’ll only be making supper Monday – Wednesday since they’ll both be out of the house ASAP after school Thursday.

I’m excited to try a few new recipes this week. I’ve only made turkey breast once and it was over 11 years ago so I’m a little foggy on the recipe… and the outcome. This time I’m going to drag out my crock pot and rub some salt and honey on the turkey. I’ll let you know how/if it turns out 🙂

Monday
Supper: Oven Denver Omelet, toast

Tuesday
Supper: Honey roasted turkey breast, stuffing, green beans

Wednesday
Supper: Chili Cheese Cornbread

Thursday
Supper: Kids are gone, so YOYO

Friday
Supper: Kids still gone, so YOYO again

Saturday
Supper: Out

Sunday
Supper: Steak, baked potatoes, green beans

I hope 2011 is starting off great for everyone! I have yet to come up with my New Year’s Resolutions, but I know #1 will be to menu plan every week no matter what else I have to contend with. It just makes life easier!

We’re finally wrapping up our Christmas celebrations this week. On Friday JT and I will celebrate our first Christmas with GW & MC’s family up in South Dakota. Saturday we have a full day of snow tubing planned. I haven’t been sledding in over 20 years so I’m looking forward to playing in the snow like a kid again, however I’m not looking forward to spending the day outside in the cold.

Monday
Supper: YOYO

Tuesday
Supper: Scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy

Wednesday
Supper: Sloppy Joes, homemade fries, corn on the cob

Thursday
Supper: Steak, mashed potatoes, cream cheese corn

Friday & Saturday – Trip to SD
