Menu Plan Monday



I need help this week. I'm in a summer-time rut and am struggling with what to fix.

Monday - black bean quesadillas I think. I've got everything to make them, and they're so tasty.

Tuesday - maybe steaks on the grill? I don't have any potatoes though so I'd have to figure out another side.  And it can't be pasta because we had mac & cheese Sunday, and will have the leftovers from it for lunches.  And L doesn't really like rice, so I'd have to think about this.  I have plenty of veggies, so that would be taken care of, it's the starchy side that we'd need since L wouldn't think it much of a meal without one. :)  Although I might have some burgers in the freezer that we could grill instead of steaks.  

Wednesday - pita pizzas.   I can't seem to get enough of them lately.  Maybe because they take 5 minutes to fix and 15 to cook. 

Thursday - spaghetti if we're not sick of pasta after having all that mac & cheese.  

Friday -  Yeah, no idea.  Hopefully inspiration will strike between now & then.  

I'm ready for fall. I do a lot better with menu-planning and meals in general when it's not so hot out.

For more menus, go to Organizing Junkie. I will be there, hoping to get some inspiration.

I agree, I do much better with my meal planning in the fall and winter. There is so much going on in the summer and it is so hot. I am looking foward to fall.

What are Pita Pizzas? Sounds interesting!

Thanks for visiting everyone!

Briana, pita pizzas (at least the way I make them) are pita bread, spread with a little spaghetti sauce, topped with some mozzarella cheese.

If we've got pepperoni we add that, if not, any other topping that's ready to go. I always add several sprinkles of red pepper flakes because I like things spicy.

Bake it in a 375 oven for 13 - 15 minutes.

They require almost no effort and are very tasty.
