Weekly Menu April 20

Posted By Heather On April 20, 2009 @ 11:17 am In Menu Plan,What's for Dinner? | 1 Comment


I used the new menu plan template [3] at I’m an Organizing Junkie [4] to get me ready for Menu Plan Monday [5] 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 [6] is temporarily organizing the Gluten Free Menu Swap [7]. Asparagus Thin [8] 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 [9].

Here’s my menu plan for this week.

Monday – Chicken Enchiladas [10]
Even after nachos last week, I still have some leftover seasoned ground beef. I’ll be adding it to some slow-cooked Mexican chicken [11] 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 [12].

Wednesday – Broiled Tilapia with a Parmesan Sauce [13]
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 [14] sweet potato fries [15] and green beans (or perhaps leftover corn-on-the-cob). If the cake is all gone, I’m going to make Rhubarb – Strawberry Crisp. [9]
