Menu Plan Monday (May 16-22)



Whew! I have been so busy that I haven't had time to post here lately. You may remember me mentioning cleaning and organizing? Well, I'm still going at it. I'll be sharing before and after pictures later this week (Friday) of the areas I've worked on so far. Some areas I will still need to go back to and organize them even better than they are, but for now, they are cleaned up and organized in a fashion. Or will be by the end of the week! :)

Just because I haven't posted doesn't mean I haven't been menu planning. Honestly, next to a really good evening routine, having a menu plan in place is key to keeping things running smoothly while I try and get work done in the house. Here's what's going on this week:

Monday

Tangy ham steak (grill)
Cheesy scalloped potatoes
Broccoli salad (like pea salad, but with broccoli)
Fresh corn

Tuesday

Gingered skewered beef
Rice
Green beans
Strawberries

Wednesday

My Mother's birthday so we're going out!

Thursday

Jamaican Brown Chicken Stew
Rice

(I've been craving this recipe and can't wait to make it!)

Friday

Leftovers

Saturday

Not sure yet. Something easy!

Sunday

Pork shoulder with gravy
Roasted potatoes
Spinach salad

Menu Plan Monday (May 2-8)



Hi there!
Can you believe it's May already? It seems like the year has hardly started and yet, it's almost halfway done. I know I didn't get a menu posted last week, but I was nursing sick children, working on some projects, and nursing my own cold. I think it was Thursday before I realized I hadn't posted it! This week has some fun "holidays" in it though, and I'm really looking forward to them! Here we go:

Monday

Breakfast:
Biscuits and gravy
Ham and spinach refrigerator pie
Sausage refrigerator pie
Fruit salad

Tuesday

Homemade pizza

Wednesday (Star Wars Day!)

Boba Fett-ucini
Death Star garlic knots
Yoda soda
Bossk Brownies

Thursday (Cinco de Mayo)

Carnitas
Rice
Semi-Homemade Tres Leches Cake (gluten free)

Friday

Leftovers

Saturday

Some kind of soup, I think

Sunday (Mother's Day)

Cookout at the park (menu still being determined)

It's pretty late here (I've been dealing with insomnia lately), so I'm going to go try and sleep. I'll be back later this week with some recipes to share. In the meantime, check out orgjunkie.com for menu inspiration!
