Menu Plan Monday

It's full-on summer time here in the South.  Days in the high 90s that feel more like triple digits.  This week is the last week of my big time June class and I couldn't be happier.  This week I have a paper due and a final but then it's over!  And the coming months will be a lot busier at work due to my boss being out on leave.  Menu Planning really helps during busy or stressful times.  It is nice going home to plans made rather than staring at the cabinet or refridgerator waiting for food to appear.  Here is our menu....

Saturday - Dinner with Family.  I made Potato Salad.

Sunday - Kabobs with steak, chicken, zucchini, squash, and onions, Corn on the Cob, and Baked Beans

Monday - Chicken and Dumplings with green beans.

Tuesday - Homemade Chicken Strips and fries.

Wednesday - Grilled Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese

Thursday - Grilled Hot Dogs

Friday - Grocery Day!

Menu Plan Monday

Another week - that means the summer is slowly slipping away BUT that also means I am 1/4 of the way through my mini-term.  Woohoo!  This week we went for easy but they are some of our favorites.  And we tried our hand at homemade pulled pork - success!  Here is our plan...

Saturday - Teriyaki Chicken, Fried Rice, and Chinese Chicken Salad

Sunday - Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Cole Slaw, and Fries.  Cooked a Boston Butt in the crockpot all day. 

Monday - Kraut & Weinies, Mac n Cheese, Pinto Beans, and Cornbread (carbing it up!)

Tuesday - Homemade Pizza with Pepperoni and Hamburger

Wednesday - Nachos

Thursday - Pancakes

Friday - Grocery Night or Movie Night (not yet determined which)

Menu Plan Monday

This week starts my crazy busy work/school schedule.  I'm taking a class that only meets for the month of June (for 3 hours everyday) so my days are going to be a bit hectic.  Menu planning is key these next few weeks.  Thankfully I'll be home at regular time but I can't even imagine my work load at this time so its good to be prepared.  Here is our menu...

Saturday - Ordered Pizza

Sunday - Hamburger Steaks, Mac n Cheese, Roasted Potatoes, Sauteed (and garden fresh) zucchini

Monday - Red Beans and Rice and Cornbread

Tuesday - Eating Out.  My husband's number 1 hobby is astronomy and Tuesday will be the Transit of Venus across the Sun.  The next viewing of this event will not be until 2117.  So, given cooperate weather, we are meeting a local astronomical society to view the event through special telescopes (that allow you to view the Sun).   We will definitely be eating out!

Wednesday - Crunchy French Onion Burgers and Home Fries

Thursday - Pancakes

Friday - Grocery Shopping or out with K before she heads off to Vegas
