My First - Menu Plan Monday - 08/10/09

Keeping with the theme of trying new things ... I found this great idea on!

Hopefully planning a menu for the week will help us use what we have on hand and help me save $$ shopping. I've always wanted to do this, but got stumped along the way. On Laura's weekly post, you will find links to others that participate in Menu Plan Monday. I'm thinking it is a great place to get ideas from real ladies that also have the quest to put good food on the table for their family.

Here goes:

Hamburger Rice - Chili seasoned hamburger with stewed tomatoes, rice and Velveeta cheese over Doritoes. YUM!

Homemade Veggie Pizza - This is to use up veggies from the garden. We grow it, it goes on the pizza! I use refrigerated pizza crust with Ragu spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese of course!

Sweet n sour chicken - Haven't had this for a while. It is easy to keep the ingredients on hand. Frozen chicken breasts coated in a cornstarch soy sauce mix and stir fried. Add in Kraft sweet and sour sauce and 1 can of pineapple chunks drained. (Save the juice and let the kids sip it for a sweet treat!) We eat this over jasmine rice (or minute rice if we are in a hurry) cooked in chicken bullion.

Ham and Turkey Sub sandwiches with provolone cheese and chips. - A busy evening so something easy it is!

We will be traveling this evening so we will stop to eat out.

Fish Fry - Hopefully! Keep your fingers crossed the fish are biting on Saturday morning!

Sirloin Steaks grilled outside, fried potatoes, Velveeta mac n cheese and corn.

For this week's menu, I only need to buy milk! (If only it was this easy every week!) LOL!

  1. Sounds great! fry! I like that you only need to buy milk! I got away with very little this week, but it was closer to 10 or so items. This is my first week to participate in Menu Plan Monday too, although I've been planning menus for awhile. Hope to "see" you there again!
