Week 4 Menu Plan

Ahhh….already going in to Week 4 of the new year! Amazing that time is flying by!

This week I’m hitting up Costco on my holiday off … thank you MLK for many things AND the bonus day off … I really have no desire to watch the Inauguration as that’s all that’s been on the TV this past weekend … I’ve got a list of things that I NEED and a few things to look at … hoping to keep it under $200 which should NOT be a problem … come back and see! The list consists of veggies (lettuce, peppers, etc.), lunch meat, milk, eggs, coffee and I want to check out the meat, specifically to see if they still have the hams like I picked up before Christmas … they were boneless spiral cut for like $2.69/lb and DELICIOUS … plus chicken thighs, bone in at Hubby’s request, olive oil, Tide Pods, and a few other oddballs.

I’m hoping to be able to utilize the rest of the day alone by catching up on some batch cooking too hopefully a new recipe or two to post too … 

Here’s what I’m planning for the week … 

Sunday – started out with high hopes of the chicken thighs and taters and onions but in reality: chicken thighs marinated in Italian dressing and then fried up in skillet with a side of buttery herb rice … nothing special here (everything was on hand already)

Monday – I’ve got shrimp defrosted in the fridge and want to use it up so I might just make a batch of the island mango shrimp for lunch today and tomorrow and offer up some to Hubby. If he snubs it (which I know he will, he doesn’t do mango!), then I will give him leftovers from Sunday instead of giving it to him for lunches 😉 (balance of stuff is in the fridge and I really need to use the mangoes or process and freeze them)

Tuesday – chicken and taters and onions (will redo the recipe and post with pictures) (have everything on hand)

Wednesday – chili … hoping to have this made on Monday so I can just reheat … (have everything on hand)

Thursday – ham and bean soup with mini ham sliders (Hubby made a big batch on Saturday, will need to buy swiss cheese)

Friday – burgers on the grill (will need to get buns)

Saturday – Hubby’s choice … friends will be over either Friday or tonight so things could get switched up a bit … 

Linking up with Menu Plan Monday … keeping on track and utilizing what I have on hand!
