Menu Plan Monday

Friday ended up being quite the night. I knew I'd have my family and a friend and his kids to feed - ended up being our next door neighbors, their parents, and another set of neighbors. Amazingly I had plenty of food - not a bit of leftovers however! Just goes to show that being ready to entertain can lead to some fun and stress free times!

This week is an unusual menu plan since it's a holiday weekend and the kids are going to stay with my in-laws for a few nights:


Monday - grilled chicken, grilled veggies (whatever is left in the fridge!)
Tuesday - "snack plate" (hummus, pita, roasted red pepper, bruschetta, leftover grilled veggies, feta, etc.)
Wednesday - brat patties (from Farmer's market - yum!), grilled peppers and onions, baked potatoes
Thursday - homemade pizza
Friday - burgers on the grill, homemade buns, corn, potato salad
Saturday - out
Sunday - pulled pork in crockpot, salad

Breakfast -

Monday - cereal/ fruit
Tuesday - eggs/toast/ bacon
Wednesday - smoothies/ waffles
Thursday - cereal/ fruit
Friday - eggs/ toast/ bacon

HOT DEAL THIS WEEK - Whole Foods is having a one day sale Friday on grass fed beef $3.99/lb. Since it'll be a few weeks until our cow is here, I'm going to stock up on enough to last us until then!
