I used the new menu plan template at I’m an Organizing Junkie to get me ready for Menu Plan Monday this week. It was great for creating a shopping list. I even remembered to take it to the store with me!
Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is temporarily organizing the Gluten Free Menu Swap. Asparagus Thin is hosting it this week with the theme ingredient of Rhubarb. I haven’t cooked with rhubarb before, but I’m going to try a new recipe for Rhubarb – Strawberry Crisp.
Here’s my menu plan for this week.
Monday – Chicken Enchiladas
Even after nachos last week, I still have some leftover seasoned ground beef. I’ll be adding it to some slow-cooked Mexican chicken and cheese to make enchiladas. I hope I have time to try a new green sauce.
Tuesday – Baked Chicken
Simple meal of chicken baked with a cream of chicken gravy. Serving with rice and asparagus.
Wednesday – Broiled Tilapia with a Parmesan Sauce
I didn’t actually get a chance to fix this last week, so I’m going to try it this week. Serving it with rice and steamed broccoli.
Thursday – Rice Bowls
Leftover Mexican chicken on leftover rice with black beans, green chiles, corn, cheese, and black olives.
Friday – Birthday Party
Celebrating my daughter’s birthday with family. Haven’t decided on a final menu yet. It will probably be her favorite meal: cheeseburgers and corn-on-the-cob. I also need to figure out what to do for an Ariel cake.
Saturday – Leftover Buffet
After four meals and a party, I know we’ll have a refrigerator full of leftovers.
Sunday – Steaks
Hoping for good weather for grilling steaks outside. Serving with Karina’s sweet potato fries and green beans (or perhaps leftover corn-on-the-cob). If the cake is all gone, I’m going to make Rhubarb – Strawberry Crisp.
