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 ifΒ he does feel like crap?? Then what?

It will be fine. I told him so, therefore, it will be. πŸ˜‰

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 theseΒ

  12. Your menu sounds great! I love your blog by the way! πŸ™‚ Been a lurker lol!This pizza crust is awesome. It's no knead and it's pretty light if you roll it out thin. I use storebought crust for most but this reheats really well and I always use it.http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Quick-and-Easy-Pizza-Crust/Detail.aspxI always end up missing something for my cookaheads, it always goes like that lol. I do a big restock in the beginning of the month and add to what we lack as the month goes on. Not that I'm a picky eater…nooo lol. πŸ™‚

  13. hehe…thanks for coming out of lurkdom for a few minutes! πŸ™‚ I've got some excellent pizza crust recipes but for some reason I used this particular one … told Hubby I should have known something was up since I had no comments written on the paper!

  14. I'm doing a pantry/freezer clean out as well, and so far I can't tell a difference. Which I think has to do with the fact I'm cooking for one instead of a family. But I'm making progress, I guess. Hopefully, this week I'll make a real dent.I use KAF pizza dough recipe. Perfect every time! http://lifelovelibrarianship.com/2011/04/white-pizza-with-spinach-and-2/Visiting from Menu Plan Monday,Elizabeth

  15. Hi Elizabeth! Yes, I know what you mean … IF I was feeding the family and all the heathens that are usually around, the pantry and freezer would be a lot more empty. The only complaints I've heard so far are \”regular chips?\”, \”sour cream?\” and \”cheese?\” … just like that as a question. Like, are you kidding us?

  17. Hey Ally, thanks for stopping in … I try to do it a few times a year but usually bail within the end of the 2nd week … more than anything it's the bad habit of MUST GO TO THE STORE because I'm out of something. πŸ™‚ Go for it!

  18. Sorry to hear about the pizza crust — I see a few folks have left their favorites for you, and I'll mention that we have a whole wheat, no-rise crust that we love on my blog. Hope you have a good week, even if it is a little quite.

  19. I found your blog through Menu Plan Monday. I always check out other posts on Saturday when I do my menu planning for the next week. I am curious what the Pantry challenge is that you referred to. We just moved to South Alabama, Fort Rucker, and noticed you are in South Florida. Any suggestions on fun things to do in this part of the world?
