Menu Plan Monday

Hey, let's take a walk down memory lane and do a Menu Plan for the week ahead!

Ha. Sorry. It's just been quite a while since I've done a real menu plan, I'll admit it. Hubby's currently medical situation has really turned a lot of things upside down and food has certainly been the #1 thing.

He goes in for treatment #3 on Tuesday and just told me this evening that he's very nervous about this one for some reason. I would make a safe guess it's because he flies out on Friday morning and well, what if he does feel like crap?? Then what?

It will be fine. I told him so, therefore, it will be. ;-)

I'm trying to do a little mini-pantry/freezer challenge this month as well ... to save a little money and to clear out some of the clutter food stuff we have hanging around too!

Here's what we are looking at for the week!

Saturday - bacon and mushroom burgers on the grill with a wedge salad (we did stop and pick up the ground beef)

Need to buy some more soon!

Sunday - Lemon Basil Chicken Thighs and Roasted Potatoes (chicken in freezer, taters from Trader Joe's several weeks back) ... recipe coming soon on the other blog!

Monday - Takeout Fakeout (will use the Mandarin Orange Chicken and Veggie Fried Rice from freezer - Trader Joe's)

Tuesday - Hubby will either be on a feeding frenzy or a food boycott ... I just don't know as first time, no food, 2nd time, couldn't eat enough and this time (3rd time) we have no idea what to expect! Grilled cheese and tomato soup for all

Wednesday - going with a Wingin Wednesday theme and cooking up some wings. Wings are in the freezer (Costco) and balance of ingredients in pantry and fridge

Thursday - Hubby will be disconnected from his 48 hour infusion so hopefully he won't feel too bad ... he needs to eat as he flies out early in the morning so I'm going to see what he wants (that we have on hand!) and let him choose

Friday - I'm a single girl this evening and I think I will make some Steak Bites as it's been a long time, hubby can't really do steak any longer AND I have some NY Strips in the freezer to use up ...

What are YOU making this week??

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!

  1. I'm going to take your challenge and clean out my pantry! Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party!

    1. You can do it! I'm always a little amazed (and slightly embarrassed) when I see how much stuff I really have!
