Menu Plan Monday ~ 3/12-3/18


It’s that time again. Monday has once again slapped me right in the face. Where does the time go?

This weekend was a busy one for us and I am hoping this week will not be a very stressful week for us. But, my daughter is sick and will be going to the doctor. My husband starts his new job today. And, I do believe my son is trying to cut some more teeth. So, the stress level just might be elevated this week. Atleast my daughter is on Spring Break and I really hope she recovers quickly so we can get out and do some fun stuff this week!

The birthday party was a huge success and I’m hoping to have a post up on Tuesday for you all to see.

I wanted to let you all know that we tried Laura’s recipe for Sweet Aromatic Chicken. We thought it was very yummy and will be making it again. Thanks, Laura!

Now, on to this weeks menu:

Monday: Pork Chops, mashed potatoes, peas & carrots

Tuesday: Creamy Italian Chicken served over egg noodles with a salad (new recipe ~ Thanks to Tater & Tot)

Wednesday: Broiled Tilapia Parmesan, garlic butter rice and salad (new recipe ~ Thanks to Overwhelmed with Joy )

Thursday: Leftovers or sandwiches

Friday: Tortilla Tostadas, chips & salsa (new recipe ~ Thanks to UtahAlison…I couldn’t find the recipe when I went to her site today, but I have it written down if any of you want it!)

Saturday: I’m still looking for a St. Patrick’s Day style dinner (I’ll update when I figure it out)

Sunday: Bruschetta Minute Steaks*, baked basil fries, peas & carrots (*I made this once before and it was really good)

For more menu plans and to get some ideas for dinner this week, head over to Laura’s blog. Hope you all have a fantastic week!

  1. It all looks good Becky, especially that tilapia! I’ve tried several Kraft recipes lately and every one I pick out seems to use stuffing mix in it somewhere, so I might have to try the steak one too!
