Weekly Menu Plan

I've realized that I need to start planning my weekly menu earlier in the weekend, so I can get the shopping done and can plan Sundays better.

I like to think ahead for my Sunday cooking and either make something that will give nice leftovers for lunches, or that I can use as a component for future dinners. This week uses the latter strategy.

Sunday - Italian Cream Cheese Chicken with rice and peas.

Monday - Chicken Spaghetti Bake. Recipe is hidden under "Sample Recipe 1." I'll be using the leftover chicken, peppers & onions from Sunday.  I'll probably add the cream cheese sauce too, just to use it up.  

Tuesday - Ham fried rice, using the leftover rice from Sunday.

Wednesday - Mexican pizza.

Thursday - Black bean quesadillas.

Friday - Burgers on the grill. Probably with potato salad & baked beans.  This is likely to be our final time grilling burgers for the season, and I do want to get another time in before we call it quits for the year.

I like that Italian Cream Cheese Chicken! Yum!!!

I like to do my planning towards the end of the work week so that I can shop EARLY on Saturday or Sunday after church if necessary.

I know what you mean about meal planning earlier. I plan for 2 weeks worth but sometimes doesn't get done. I try to add things to my next menu using Recipe Zaar by what sounds good from MPM, our faves, etc. Have a great week!

We still have a few more months of using the grill. I do love burgers, beans and potato salad!
