Menu Plan Monday...Aug 31

Monday - spiedies (grilled chicken) and acorn squash from my garden!! :-D They're little but still exciting!

Tuesday - French dip sandwiches au jus! These are so yummy! When I made this previously, with a 1 lb roast, I cut the juice in half and made a few tweaks: 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 Worcestershire sauce, 1 can beef broth (french onion flavored), 2 cups water. Spices: ~3 cloves garlic, almost 1.5 tsp dried rosemary, a couple dashes of dried thyme, approx 2 bay leaves. Added a few small sprigs of fresh thyme.

Wednesday - not sure yet

Thursday - not sure yet

Friday - not sure yet

Menu Plan Monday...Aug 24

Here are my ideas for the week, I just don't know yet when we're gonna need/use them. This week is feeling like it's gonna be crazy!

Tues/Weds/Thurs/Fri - not sure what's needed yet, but probably only 2 out of these 4 days.

and Mexican crock-pot chicken that I didn't get to last week

Saturday & Sunday - leftovers? Maybe I'll make a pot of chili one day this weekend...

Menu Plan Monday...Aug 17...crockpot week

Cooking all four of these recipes in the crock pot this week!
Got this ready last night, lined my crock pot with aluminum foil, and it's gonna be baking in the crock pot all day today!

Wednesday - leftovers

For this, I'm just going to use a roast (top round) and throw everything in the crock pot together, and shred the roast when it's done.

Saturday - going to a cookout/party...taking burgers

Menu Plan Monday...Aug 10

I had this weeks menus ready last week! Yay for planning ahead!

I sorta cheated though (:-P), and used's 1 list, 5 meals...they plan out 5 meals for you and give you a shopping list of everything you'll need for those 5 meals. I'm surprised I found one that my sorta-picky hubby and I would both enjoy all 5 of them, with only a few tweaks! So here's what I have for the week... actually starting Sunday this week...

Tuesday - subs from Wawa

Wednesday - need it to be ready right when we get home so i'm making Orange-Apricot Pork Chops in the crockpot

Saturday - leftovers

hooray! another week under my belt!
