Menu Plan Monday - 4th Week! 8/31/09

Well, last week, I planned the menus and we switched around a lot! I managed to try one new pressure cooker recipe too. This week will be a busy week since we are going camping for the holiday weekend. Check on to see more Menu Plan Monday followers.

(See below for what last week was and what we actually did for supper).

Monday: New Recipe - Baked Chicken Chimichangas - Taste of Home Cookbook. Page 174 (Didn't get to make these last week. Making fresh salsa this afternoon so we'll give it a try!)

Tuesday: Spaghetti with italian meatballs and french bread. (Didn't get to make this last week)

Wednesday: Flank Steak Fajitas - Gotta use that salsa! :-)

Thursday: Cracker Crust Chicken with red potatoes in gravy and peas - I just use crushed saltines (with some seasoned salt) to coat chicken cubes that have been dipped in egg and then fry them. (Didn't make this last week)

Friday: Camping - Eat out on the way there

Saturday: Camp out - Fish Fry! (Hopefully!) - Potoato salad (make @ home) Chips, Dip and Campfire baked potatoes.

Sunday: Camp out - Burgers and Dogs grilled - Campfire corn on the cob, chips Dip

Monday (Labor Day): Back Home Something easy. (Raviolis & Spaghettios and lake leftovers.) I went ahead and planned this day too since we will just be getting home.

HOW WE DID LAST WEEK of 8/17/09:
Monday: Pepper Steak - Got busy this night so we ate Spaghettios and Raviolis.
Tuesday: BLT's - These didn't sound good, so I made the new pressure cooker recipe for Monster Meatballs. Family liked the meatballs and the potatoes but not the gravy. Said next time put marinara sauce on the meatballs. Maybe smaller and on french bread for a sandwich.
Wednesday: Monster Meatballs. - Made this Tuesday instead. Tonight I made Pepper steak that we were supposed to have on Monday.
Thursday: Cracker Crust Chicken with red potatoes in gravy and peas - Busy out shopping, so I used a gift card to a fast food restaurant I had.
Friday: Baked Chicken Chimichangas - Another busy night so we did Leftovers and raviolis.
Saturday: Spaghetti with italian meatballs and french bread. - Suprise! we went camping! SO we grilled burgers and hot dogs and had chips and dip with them
Sunday: Tacos with cheese dip and tortilla chips. - On our way home from camping we stopped to eat at Pizza Hut.

We only ate two things off of the menu this week and I switched around days on them. LOL! THIS, is a typical week for us. He he! So, I planned another week. We'll see how it goes. Either way, I'm still ahead cause it's just now midday and I KNOW what's for dinner! YAY!

Have a great week everyone!
