Menu Plan Monday | Week of 5/6/13

by Marcy on May 6, 2013 · 0 comments

We have been enjoying lots of beautiful spring sunshine here in Central, OH! We ended up deviating from last week’s menu plan on Sunday night and grilled steak and potatoes – it was a great way to end a beautiful weekend. Eating on the patio is one of my favorite things about spring/summer. That and the fact that my husband mans the grill and helps out with the cooking. ;-)

The theme for this week’s menu plan is quick and easy. We have a lot going on and will be eating with family several times, so I didn’t have to plan very much. I’m going to be consumed with end of the years school activities and planning a birthday party for my soon to be 3 year old – and I’m not going to have a lot of extra time to spend in the kitchen for the next several days!

Here is what I’m planning for our dinners this week:

  • Monday – Pizza at a school event for my first grader
  • TuesdayHoly Yum Chicken (I’m using breasts instead of thighs), Rice, Frozen Veggies
  • Wednesday – Burgers and Hot Dogs on the Grill, Chips/Pretzels, Fruit
  • ThursdayTurkey Meatloaf (from the freezer), Egg Noodles, Frozen Veggie
  • Friday – Eat Out
  • Saturday – Dinner with Family
  • Sunday – Frozen Pasta Meal – unless someone decides to cook for me for Mother’s Day ;-)
