Menu Plan Monday~ Busy Week

>> 5.03.2010

If the gorgeous weather isn't proof enough that winter is over then my calendar sure is.  As I was looking over our family's month of May I realized we have only 7 days that are appointment-free!  Between T-Ball starting and end-of-the-school-year activities we are going to be on the move!  This makes it difficult at times to find time to cook, which inevitably means more eating out.  And that's just not an option right now~ so what to do?

For starters, when making my meal plan this week I was careful to include several chicken dishes.  Chicken is so versatile and easy it just made sense that that is where our protein will be coming from this week.  So yesterday my husband marinated and grilled up 4 whole chicken breasts.  The main part of our weekly meals is fully cooked and ready, and then I just tried to come up with a menu that was diversified enough and not boring.  Here's what I came up with:

  • Monday: Grilled Chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, green salad
  • Tuesday: Chicken Fried Rice w/ sugar snap peas
  • Wednesday: Chicken, brown rice pasta & roasted veggies in cream sauce
  • Thursday: Grass-fed Ground beef tacos
  • Friday:  Out to dinner
  • Saturday: Chicken Pot Pie
  • Sunday: Breakfast for Dinner~ Soaked blueberry coffee cake
Enjoy the week!

Oh, I am a fan of Anne! (And Jen!) Thanks for this post. I want to attempt Chicken Fried Rice. What a fun thing to add to the menu!

THANKS for the milk. We might need more next month. The kids are drinking a ton. This is wonderful.

I love your blog.
