Menu Plan Monday ~ May 19th

Hi everyone, I’ve got to confess I didn’t do so well with the meals I had planned last week. Hubbie was actually out of town so the meals just kept getting simpler and simpler for me and the kids. I must say it ended up being a nice break :)

I did manage to make the Chicken Coleslaw Wraps though and they were excellent. What a great combination of flavors. I made them using the Weight Watchers 100% whole wheat wraps and they were so good. We will definitely have these again. Did anyone else try them?

So I’ve got three new recipes on the menu this week but I’m hoping to add to my new recipe collection even further during my MPM blog crawl. Hope someone has some good ones for me :)

On the menu for us:

Monday: Pork Schnitzel, hashbrowns and veggies

Tuesday: Penne with Veggies ‘N’ Black Beans

Wednesday: Crunchy Poppyseed Chicken Salad served with Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread (bread machine)

Thursday: Chicken ‘N’ Spinach Pasta Bake

Friday: Leftover buffet

Saturday: Beef Vegetable Soup (this one I’ve made before and it’s delicious!)

I’ll also be making these Apple Wheat Muffins this week, they look pretty yummy!


Please feel free to join us!

Menu Plan Monday guidelines can be found here.

    I’ve got an **ALL NEW** graphic that I am super proud of for my Menu Plan Mondays! My family also got new fresh laminated menus for the kitchen wall (to replace the old drab ones in winter colors). Happy meal planning everyone!

    That chicken & spinach bake looks so good. I’ve focused on quick and cool meals this week–I’m trying to use the crockpot more and the oven less.

    What is it about the hubby being out of town that makes one NOT want to cook a meal?

    My husband is away Tuesday and Wednesday this week. My 24 y/o son loves fish as well as I do (dh isn’t quite so thrilled) so I often take advantage of business trips in order to cook fish. We are having blackened tilapia Tuesday. Yum!

    Seeing the recipe for wheat oatmeal bread, reminds me that I should actually use our bread maker. I go through stages where I use it all the time, then forget about it for months!

    Don’t feel badly. My husband works obnoxious rotating shifts and the weekends he is on days I have a hard time forcing myself above and beyond the barest minimum and frequently fall off the menu wagon. ;)

    I didn’t know WW made wraps – I’ll have to look for them in my grocery store.

    I love the wraps from last week! Wraps are so easy to make and so tasty. Unfortunately my kids hate eating things that are mixed together. Everything must be separate on the plate. Which makes food such as wraps, stews, or anything normal off limits.

    Why do we let children eat, anyway?

    I have to say that Chicken salad looks pretty good! I’m trying to use up some of the meats I found when I defrosted my freezer this week – wish me luck. I didn’t realize how many turkey burgers I still had! I wish I had planned to have a Memorial Day cookout now!

    Thanks so much for hosting this each week. It really helps to keep me accountable (and helps me find new recipes)

    A busy week ahead of us. Lots to do to prepare for hosting our church’s annual spring picnic at our house. So I’m planning easy quick meals to leave extra time for cleaning…in the house AND in the garden! ~~Rhonda :)

    Thanks so much for Menu Planning Monday. I am very excited to be posting for the first time. The chicken slaw wraps look yummy. Since I don’t like store bought coleslaw (too much mayo) I am just going to borrow part of the recipe and use the bag of coleslaw without the mayo in my chicken wraps this week. Thank you!

    Thanks so much Laura….I am so excited to try this out. I know that menu planning makes such a huge difference for me and how fun to see what others are doing and get more ideas!!

    Well shucks…I am down in the 200s. I figured I would be because I did not even FEEL like making a menu out. Going to Dr tomorrow. I think I have whooping cough :-(

    Hope everyone has a yummy week.

    This is my first time. I plan for a lot more than a week at a time – it coincides with my shopping, and I dread that with my daughter in tow and trying to work from home all the time too!

    Your receipes sound great. I’m still pretty new to committing to a menu each week but it sure has helped not having to think twice about what dinner is going to be.
