Menu Plan May 18
Posted By Heather On May 18, 2009 @ 5:54 pm In Menu Plan,What's for Dinner? | 6 Comments
I don’t know why, but for some reason I had a really hard time coming up with a meal plan this week. I was trying to keep a balance between beef and chicken; a balance of meals that appeal to my husband and me and meals more appealing to my kids; make sure we’ve got enough fiber from fruits and vegetables, etc. But what I really wanted to decide, is what wonderful chocolate dessert I was going to make for my birthday this week. I did finally come up with a meal plan, but I still haven’t decided on my birthday treat. I’m thinking about making a Mississippi mud cake (haven’t had one in years!), but if you’ve got any chocolate dessert suggestions send them my way.
Monday – Cheeseburgers
Easy night of cooking with cheeseburgers, fries, corn-on-the-cob, and green beans.
Tuesday – Grilled Chicken
Chicken breasts simply seasoned and grilled. Serving with zucchini fritters  and red quinoa (if I can find it at the store).
Wednesday – Flank Steak
I didn’t get a chance to have this last week — too many leftovers to eat up. So, I’m trying again this week. Serving with Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.
Thursday – Grilled Chicken Salad
Using some leftover grilled chicken from Tuesday to top a salad. Haven’t yet decided on a Greek salad with the feta in my fridge, or a southwest-style salad  with leftover corn and black bean salad  in my fridge.
Saturday – Cheesesteak Sandwiches
Another leftover recipe using the flank steak from Wednesday and adding in some cheese and sauteed onions. I’ll use Against the Grain baguettes  for the bread.
Sunday – Leftovers
Any prepared foods left in the refrigerator come out for a pick-your-own-meal buffet.
