Menu Plan Monday - 4.24.11


This week's menu is heavily influenced by my husband.  He told me he wanted to have tacos twice - beef once and chicken once so I am obliging.  He also wanted hamburgers and spaghetti - a pretty easy week for me.  Last week's menu favorite is Chicken and Spinach with penne.  This was really delicious and I have a delicious tomato sauce in the freezer which I used to top the penne - it is ButterYum's San Marzano Tomato Sauce and it was delicious even thought I didn't use the San Marzano tomatoes.
I would like to leave you with pictures of our Easter dinner.  My stepmom hosted it and she makes wonderful desserts and sets very cute tables.  She's also a great cook.  My sister decorated the lamb cake.  We had a wonderful day of worshiping our Lord and of being with family.

Now onto the menu:


Scrambled Eggs and turkey bacon
Cereal and Milk (if we run out of eggs)

Salad with shredded cheese, thinly sliced almonds, precooked chicken and homemade dressing
Tortilla pizza or chicken nuggets or homemade uncrustables and veggie straws and apples for the kids


Beef tacos with soft shells, sweet corn, salad and peaches
Hamburgers and fries, carrots
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry with Stir Fry veggies- we didn't have this last week
Spaghetti and Meatballs, salad and fruit smoothies
Chicken tacos, salad and applesauce
Pizza - BBQ Chicken Pizza or Chicken Alfredo Pizza or Sloppy Joes Pizza  and Strawberry Peach Slushie

What is on your menu this week?


  1. I would love to have taco's twice in one week, possibly more. I don't think Josh would go for that. But he might go for having hamburgers numerous nights per week.

  2. I love your blog! Great meal ideas! I became a follower of your blog! Erin

  3. Erin,

    Thank you! I am going to check your's out because it sounds like we have similar interests.

  4. Sarah,

    Maybe you could compromise and have tacos and hamburgers twice in a week - that would be a super easy meal plan:)


I love comments!
