Menu Plan Monday - January 18th
This is my third week of Menu Plan Monday, and again I just love it. If you haven't yet, you should totally try it out. Head on over to I'm An Organizing Junkie and see what all the planners are up to! You can seriously get some wonderful ideas! Last week, I made two lemon chicken (loved it), chicken garlic lettuce wraps (amazing!), and a white chicken chili (so easy my son could have made it!). One of the cool things is that I was able to take that one chicken and make three dinners for my husband, son and myself and two lunches for me (left over garlic chicken lettuce wraps), and lunch for my hubs and myself on Sunday (left over white chicken chili). The best part was that for most of the three meals, I already had everything I needed. I spent less than $10 on what I didn't have on hand.
Now on to this week!
Pot Roast with carrots and mashed potatoes -- This will be a nice treat for my husband to come home to. I feel bad because he has to work tomorrow. :( Poor hubs.
Beef Stroganoff (using left over pot roast) I am basing it on this recipe, but I am also adding fresh mushrooms, because my husband loves them. :)
Alexander's Pick - This is the first meal my son, Alexander will pick and prepare (with my help). He is searching out the recipes tomorrow. I will be adding a link when he gives me his inspiration.
Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos (using corn tortillas not flour)
Spicy grilled chicken breasts with green leaf lettuce salad
Ranch Beans and Franks
Barbecue Chicken Pizza
