Menu Plan Monday-2011 Week 2

Happy Monday!

You know, I love Mondays. I love being at home with the family, but I’m a routine girl and settling back into my daily routine on Monday morning always makes me happy.  Even if I am sad that the kids are back in school and Big Daddy is back to work.

Our menu plan went well last week.  I really have to recommend the  Mediterranean Chicken. It was delicious.  Since writing my menu plan a week in arrears didn’t work out so well, I decided the best way to let you know if recipes were worth cooking (or worth skipping) was just blog about it the next Monday.  In any case, try the chicken.  Delish.  FYI-I skipped the Italian salad dressing.  I don’t like fat free dressings.  I think they taste horrible.  I used dry Italian dressing and put in a tiny bit of olive oil and a little rice wine vinegar.

Anyhow, onto this week.  Our local store has an AMAZING deal on chicken breasts again this week.  Sorry, Big Daddy.  They have a good price on turkey kielbasa (smoked sausage) too, so our menu plan reflects that.

We’ve had this before.  And it was REALLY good.

Greek Lemon Chicken and potatoes


Baked macaroni and cheese with smoked sausage


Make your own pizza night. Our homemade pizzas are nearly as good as what we can buy and it gives us another opportunity to eat something else out for our one eat out pass a week.

Have a happy week!  Remember, planning your meals and having a grocery list can help you save money on your weekly grocery bills.

    I think your menu choices look fantastic. I really need to start doing a real menu plan each week. My husband and I keep saying that we want to do it, but haven’t managed to really do it yet. Here’s to a new year.

      Thanks, Amy.

      Menu planning really does help. I HATE doing it (and whine abut and get irritated) but it’s a really useful process. Good luck getting your planning on track!

    Oh, I love menu planning. I finally got on board with it this past year. That kielbasa dish sounds delicious. Have a great week!

      The kielbasa dish is really good and really only takes fifteen minutes to prepare, so it’s great for busy nights. Of course, the kids wouldn’t eat it this time for reasons I don’t understand yet…they loved it last time.
