Menu Plan Monday – Week of July 23, 2017

I’m BACK!

After two weeks of small trips, I’m finally back to planning meals for the whole week.  Last week, I took the Imaginative One on a road trip to Hershey, PA.  He just turned 14 so I thought it would be good for us to go on a mother-son trip.

During the four days we were gone, we traveled 70 miles on the Lincoln Highway in Pennsylvania, paid tribute to the heroes of Flight 93, rode the rides in Hershey Park, laughed like crazy on the trolley ride through Hershey, visited Gettysburg, and traveled the 112 miles on I-68 in Maryland/ West Virginia.  We also drove many miles and made so many memories.

Okay now onto the menu for this week.

I’ve got all day classes on Monday and Tuesday so the dinners need to be simple on those two days.

Sunday

Pork Roast, Roasted Baby Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Rolls

Strawberries and Blueberries with homemade whipped cream for dessert

 

Monday

Cubed Steak, Mashed Potatoes, and Gravy

 

Tuesday

Sausage, Mac and Cheese, Veggies

 

Wednesday

“Oven Fried” Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Veggies

 

Thursday

Pork Ribs with lemon garlic marinade, Rice, Veggies

 

Friday

Left Overs

 

Saturday

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches or Sloppy Joes, Fries or Chips, Veggies

Happy eating,

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of July 3, 2017

I have a menu!  I have a menu!  Yeah!

We’ve been gone on vacation. My sister-in-law made sure we had dinners each day we were at the beach house so I haven’t menu planned in a few weeks.

Today I went to the store to restock.  While I was there, I made a menu.  I know that’s kind of backwards.  Actually I had an idea for a few meals.  Once I got there I nailed down the actual menu for the week.

Sunday – BBQ chicken, potato salad or French fries, corn

Monday  – Sloppy Joes, Hash browns, carrots and celery

Tuesday – Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Carrots and Celery, Potato Chips, Potato Salad

Wednesday – Brown Sugar Ham, Rice, Peas

Thursday – Breaded Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Veggies

Friday – Pork Chops, Mac and Cheese, Veggies

Saturday  – Weekend Fun – Leftovers for Dinner

Here’s a printable menu.

Happy Eating,
Traci

P.S.  There will be no menu next week.  The boys will be at camp so it will be only Hubby and I for dinner.

P.P.S.  This menu is linked to I’m An Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday.

Since I have a dental appointment on Monday, I’ll probably just make potato soup for our dinner.  Tuesday might be breakfast for dinner.

Have a magical day,
