Menu Planning Monday -- My First!

Welcome to my first "installment" of Menu Plan Monday (well, Tuesday for me this week). I try each week to plan a menu for the week and I'm finally getting around to participating in Menu Plan Monday. My great friend Desiree at Clappy Shoes got me started here.

Monday -- One of my CARES Teams came over for dinner and we had marinated flank steak, twice-baked potatoes, salad and bread. One of our favorite meals!

Tuesday --We have Poker night tonight and I'm hoping we'll be able to provide pizza for everyone. Otherwise, Michael and I will have sandwiches beforehand.

Wednesday --Spaghetti Pie and salad

Thursday --Lemon-pepper chicken, rice and brocolli

Friday --I'm at a women's retreat with church, so Michael is on his own.

Saturday --
Lasagna and salad. (Desiree's recipe is awesome!) I'm making this on Friday before I leave so it will be easy to pop in the oven when I get home.

Sunday --
Balsamic Chicken with Spring Vegetables. Gotta love the crock pot!

Happy menu planning!!

Yummo! That crockpot dish is very exciting looking. I will have to try that next week!!! I am looking forward to veggies from the garden and I am hoping they grow quickly. I just found cilantro growing in my sidewalk :). I think it dropped some seeds the wrong direction last year! :)

That sounds like a fabulous plan - you are such a chef! I need to plan ahead on my meals - it would be so much easier.

What was the crockpot dish like? I am thinking of making it this week.
