Menu Plan Monday

I don't even want to think about what happened with my menu planning last week. Seriously, I have to either go big or go home. I didn't sit down and write out my weekly menu on Sunday and it was mayhem. I only cooked once. Monday we grabbed Harvey's when we were out running errands. Tuesday I went to Spicy Thai with the girls from school and FD grilled a burger (this outing was planned so I didn't feel guilty about it). Wednesday I cooked (gasp!) turkey enchiladas and Thursday we grabbed take out on our way up north to the in-laws. Then we were at their place for the weekend, so I was off the hook. But as soon as I got home last night I decided it was time to get back on track and get a menu figured out for this week before I get completely derailed again.

So, without further ado - here it is.

Breakfasts
Mocha Bagels
Homemade granola and yogurt
Fruit smoothies
Harvest Grain Bread (recipe coming soon, I promise)

Lunches
Greek salads
Turkey sandwiches
Turkey soup

Dinners

Monday
BBQ'ed chicken breasts
Fried Rice
Squash
Asparagus

Tuesday
Sausage and Perogy Casserole
Peas

Wednesday
Snow White's Unstuffed pepper skillet in whole wheat tortillas

Thursday
Crockpot stew
Biscuits

Friday
Hubby is on his own because I'm hosting a bachelorette party - it will be a potluck so I won't have to prepare much food.

Saturday
Steak
Mushrooms
Baked potato
Grilled veggies (Company's a comin'...)

Sunday
Bridal shower luncheon

Head on over to I'm an Organizing Junkie to see what others are cooking up. And don't forget to read my last post introducing my giveaway!

I think Saturday dinner might be slightly wrong...

Wednesday's dinner sounds so yummy! And, have you looked at the grilled potato recipe I linked on mine to go with your grilled steak later this week? I haven't tried it yet and was going to go with a baked potato but I came across it and it looks really easy and delicious. I'll have to let you know :)

For steak, I LOVE bottled Caribbean jerk sauce or teriyaki but I also make my own by mixing worcestershire sauce, lemon (or lime) juice, a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder (for a smokey flavor), and Grill Mates steak seasoning together. It's perfect for grilling but doesn't turn out the same on the stove. I always add citrus to my homemade marinade though because it adds something :)

what a fun menu :) hope you enjoy the unstuffed pepper skillet -- I added black beans too and it was extra tasty.

Yum! I read your old post about the mocha bagels and now I think that I have to give them a try!

We ended up having Rib Eye Steaks this week. I almost forgot that we had them.
You have a terrific menu planned.
