Menu Plan Monday, On Tuesday!
Another week is already speeding by! After a few weeks of several trips out of town, the menu plan has gone by the wayside. I'm getting back on the bandwagon this week, though! I need to go grocery shopping but have enough on hand to make a fairly balanced meal plan. Toward the end of the week, I hope to have more fresh produce on hand so I'll plug whatever I get into the menu then.
My basil plants have taken off and are lush and big, thus I'm making 2 dishes with it this week. Pesto and our new favorite, Basil Mayo Chicken Pasta Salad. Basil is so fragrant; I love cooking with it!
Monday- steak dinner with friends
Tuesday-buttered spaghetti with pesto sauce, leftover piece of steak from last night, steamed yellow squash
Wednesday-zucchini casserole made with yellow squash, cooked veggie, sliced banana peppers
Thursday-Israeli Spice chicken chunks, tabouli, hummus and chips
Friday- Lunch- Basil mayo chicken pasta salad
Supper- Ham and Cheese Bread, fresh veggies and fruit
Breakfasts are cream of wheat. cold cereal, biscuits and scrambled eggs (2x), muffins, and yogurt with seasonal berries.
Lunches are leftovers. I also have some lunch meat for sandwiches if we need it.
Thanks to Laura from Heavenly Homemakers for hosting Menu Plan Monday this week!
