Menu Plan Monday | Week of 5/13/13

by Marcy on May 13, 2013 · 0 comments

I decided to have a relatively lazy Mother’s Day yesterday, so I’m playing catch up on menu planning and snack prep/dividing. This week is going to be another week of digging into the freezer and pantry to use up what I already have on hand. I should have more than enough to work with, and I’m hoping to keep my grocery budget WAY down after going over budget last week when shopping for my now 3 year old’s birthday party.

Here is what I’m planning for our dinners:

  • MondayMaple-Mustard Glazed Chicken (I’m adapting for the Crock Pot), Herbed Couscous (Far East – in a box :-)), Frozen Veggie
  • Tuesday – Taco Salad (ground beef, mixed greens, salsa, guac, bell peppers, cheese, crushed tortilla chips)
  • Wednesday – Eat Out – Me: dinner with friends; Family: take out pizza
  • Thursday – Grilled Chicken Kabobs (Red Onion, Chicken, Bell Peppers), Foil Potato Packets
  • Friday – Michael Angelo’s Frozen Eggplant Parmesan Meal, Garlic Bread
  • Saturday – Italian Marinated Chicken on the Grill, Green Bean Salad (trying a new recipe, will post if I like it)
  • Sunday – Pork Roast (Crock Pot), Noodles, Frozen Veggie
