I’ll be taking a bit of a blogging break next week and so Menu Plan Monday for August 3rd will be hosted by Toni from The Happy Housewife!
Hey gang, how is everyone? I’m so glad you’re here, thanks for joining me and sharing your menu with everyone.
We just got home from a beautiful sunny weekend of camping which of course is the only way I’ll go because this princess girl doesn’t like to sleep in a soggy tent if it’s raining out. Ahh the joys of tenting! :) Nothing beats hot dogs cooked over an open fire though. Mmmmm.
So I don’t know if you remember but last week I pleaded asked for suggestions on casserole dishes that I could prepare for a friend. Be sure to visit the comments on this post for so many great recipe ideas. Thank you for helping me out. The recipe I decided to use is called Chicken Macaroni Bake and it came from the fabulous site Once a Month Mom. Gosh if you are looking for a great selection of freezer meal recipes be sure to check them out. I doubled the recipe to make two nice size round take out dishes full which they could decide to have one or both at a time depending on how many people they were feeding on a particular night.
Okay so most of you must know by now how passionate I am about menu planning and how I’m on a mission to really encourage everyone to give it a try at least once. I say at least once because I’m convinced it will only take that long for you to realize the many benefits to it. Anytime someone wants to talk to me about menu planning I jump at the opportunity. This week I did a podcast with the lovely Cara from The Household Helper blog. We had such fun chatting away about menu planning. If you’d like to have a listen you can do so here.
Here’s what’s on our menu for this week:
Monday: Mexican-Style Ravioli (missed from last week)
Tuesday: Grilled sausages served with Hawaiian Salad
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Maui Chicken (I might be missing my girlfriend from Hawaii what do you think? lol)
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Teriyaki Sirloin Steak served with baked potatoes and grilled veggies
Saturday: Grilled Portobello and Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich with Garlic Herb Mayonnaise
