Archive for the ‘Menu Plan Monday’ Category

I am finally getting back on track with my menu planning.  I know things are not going to slow down as fall descends upon us.  In the next two and a half months our family has, in this order: Baby’s First Birthday party, Halloween, husbands birthday, father’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and finally, Christmas.  Whew!  I’m exhausting just thinking about all of it.  So, I’m going to rely heavily on planning and organization to get me through.

How is your fall shaping up?

Monday:  Baked Macaroni and Cheese and veggies

Tuesday:  Homemade Mushroom and Olive Pizza

Wednesday: Pesto Chicken and Rosemary Potatoes with Homemade Pull Apart Dinner Rolls

Thursday: Grilled top sirloin and Caesar Salad

Friday:  Lemon Artichoke Chicken (will do a post on this recipe if there is interest!) 🙂

What’s going to be on your dinner table this week?

This is going to be a busy week.  Dentist appointments (first one for my 2 1/2-year-old!), the carpets are getting cleaned (baby is finally crawling, really can’t put it off any longer!), and I’m leaving my husband alone for the weekend (what a treat!), because I’m packing up the kids and taking them to my friend’s house for the weekend.  It should be a crazy, fun, weekend with 6 kids between us.  Ahhh!  

On top of all this, I’m prepping for our upcoming trip to Disneyland!  This will be the boys’ first trip, and the baby is staying with my parents.  My in-laws, and my brother and sister-in-law will be coming, too.  I will never again be spoiled with so much adult supervision for my children.  I simply cannot wait!

Because the week is already going to be busy, I have a very simple menu on deck.  Nothing fancy, but family favorites all around.

Monday:  Tacos (Still have not gotten this on the table, in two weeks!)

Tuesday:  Homemade Pesto Pizza (using pesto and pizza dough recipe from Simple Bites)

Wednesday:  Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Soup

Thursday:  Breakfast for Dinner – Scrambled Eggs and Overnight Forgotten Coffeecake  (trying to use up leftover buttermilk in the fridge!)

Friday:  Off to my friend’s house for the weekend, so husband is on his own with leftovers or whatever he can find.  🙂

Loving this Menu Plan Monday, and actually holding myself accountable for it.  A whiteboard in the kitchen wasn’t really doing it for me.  🙂  I found the recipe for Thursday from Jo-Lynne at Musings of a Housewife.  She got the recipe from Jules at JustJules.  Thanks to both of these ladies for this awesome recipe!  My recipe for Tuesday was found courtesy of Laura at I’m An Organizing Junkie, it was on her menu last week.  Can’t wait to try it!

Monday:  Tacos (didn’t get to that last week)

Tuesday:  Baked Ziti with Spinach and Sausage  (Looks like real comfort food!)

Sunday:  Who knows, something simple!

What’s on your menu for this week?

I’ve been following along, and lurking in the shadows at Laura’s Menu Plan Monday roundup at I’m An Organizing Junkie for a long time now.  I’ve menu planned (off and on) for almost a year.  It is by far one of the most simple ways you can 1) save money 2) be more organized and 3) save time.  Plus, it almost assures you that you will try new recipes.  I’m finally linking up!

So, here’s what’s on our menu for the week:

Monday: One Pot Spaghetti

Tuesday:  Homemade Pizza – here’s the recipe I’ll use for pizza dough for the rest of my life! Scroll down in the post to find it.

Wednesday:   Tacos

Thursday:  Oven-Fried Chicken 

Friday:  Breakfast for Dinner – scrambled eggs, fruit, and Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread (photo and recipe from Joy the Baker)

I mean, who wouldn’t want to eat this?  I may have to make a double batch!
