Menu Plan Monday 5/18/09

Late but not forgotten....

Monday: Cerveza & Lime Marinated Pork Chops (grilled), Cous Cous & Spinach Salad - The pork chops were awesome! I left out the tequila and added a tablespoon of brown sugar - also did not make the full amount of marinade. Let them marinate for about 8 hours. Definitely a keeper....

Tuesday: Chicken Satay w/ Peanut dipping sauce, Rice, & Salad
Wednesday: Sloppy Joes, Chips & Fruit
Thursday: Greek Pasta with White Beans & Tomatoes, Salad
Friday: Crispy Oven Baked Fish, Oven Fries & Salad

Menu Plan Monday 5/11/09

Where does a week go? We've got lots of lettuce and spinach from the garden so we are "heavy" on the salads this week. Here is the menu:

Monday: Jerk Chicken, Rice & Salad
Tuesday: Lasagna & Salad
Wednesday: Fried Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes & Dilled Carrots
Thursday: Chicken Enchiladas, Refried Beans, & Salad
Friday: Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, & Baked Beans...and maybe a salad ;)

The last time I made potato salad, Mike raved over it. Now, if only I could remember what I did....I know I didn't use a recipe!

Menu Plan Monday 5/4/09

Keeping on track! That's what the menu planning feature of this blog really helps me do. It is also nice for my husband to check at work to see what he's going to come home to ;) I have to admit, I'm not crazy about every night this week. But I honestly start running out of ideas of how to use ground beef - of which we have tons - and I'm very thankful for! That's why we are having the baked fleischkuechle. If you're from ND, then you've probably at least heard of it (although they are usually deep fried). If you aren't, well then, it is basically seasoned ground beef wrapped in a basic dough and then cooked. It's a Russian-German thing from what I gather.

Monday: Chicken & Mediterranean Pasta & Salad
Tuesday: Steak Fajitas, Rice & Beans
Wednesday: Tom Ka Gai (Thai Chicken Coconut Soup), Egg Rolls & Salad
Thrusday: Baked Fleishkuechle, German Potato Salad, & Green Beans
Friday: Grilled Salmon, Rice Pilaf, & Salad

The salad in my garden is ready to go so we need to be eating it A LOT!
