Menu Plan Monday ~ June 29th


Welcome!  Thank you all for the birthday wishes last week, I really appreciated it!  Please forgive me  if I didn’t get a chance to personally thank you.

The winner of last week’s Heavenly Homemaker’s Guide to Gardening and Preserving ebook was Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  Kristen’s Menu Plan Monday post last week included instructions on how to make homemade bagels.  That’s something else on my list of things to try one of these days, they looked delicious!

So how’s everyone doing today?   I just got home from a bit of a mini road trip with my girlfriend and we had such a glorious time.  Well except for the part where she made me stand on a bridge far far above the land for a photo opp.  I so wasn’t impressed with that.  Have I told you I’m afraid of heights?


Aside for that small moment where I feared for my life, the rest of the trip was great! 🙂  It’s always nice to get away if only for a little while.  I mean I love my kids but boy is it nice to carry on a conversation without being interrupted.  We went to an amazing Mexican restaurant.  I had a yummy tostada with yam fries and for dessert some coconut lime meringue pie.  Yep, I had to be rolled out of there.


Now I’m sitting here trying to come up with a menu for this week.  Nothing is jumping out at me.  Strange how some weeks it’s so easy to select recipes for the week and other times it can be so difficult.  Maybe the trick is to do up my menu when I’m really really hungry because that way everything will be sure to appeal to me 🙂  Right now though I’m still full from the weekend!

MPM Tip: I know many of you already do this but if you are featuring a recipe or recipe links in your MPM post be sure to include that in your Mr. Linky info to encourage people to visit your site.

So here’s what we’ll be eating this week:

Monday: Fajitas

Tuesday: Pasta and Zucchini

Wednesday: Wienie and Smore Roast as part of our July 1st celebrations!

Thursday: Crockpot Brown Sugar Chicken (I’ll be using a whole chicken) served with perogies and salad

Friday: Leftover buffet

Saturday: Grilled Honey Garlic Pork Tenderloin served with baked potatoes and veggies

Simple Supper Sunday

    I forgot to mention in the linky that our Take and Make Menu Plans always include recipes for all the meals. This week we have Martha Stewart dinner recipes – yum!

    Every week, I think to myself, wow, I really ought to get a crock pot. Well, everyone, this might just be that week! You all always have such yummy tasty-sounding crock pot recipes!

    Welcome Back!! OH MY!!! I would freak on one of those bridges. Had a major panic attack by the time we reached the other side when my husband inadvertently lead me over one. YOU are a brave soul!

    the pork tenderloin sounds like it will have great flavor! I’ll have to add that to my list to try.

    enjoy the pasta and zucchini — I loved it so much I ate it nearly all week as leftovers 🙂

    I’m new here. This is my 3rd week and I have to admit, it’s tough for me to follow a menu plan. So recipes will come later!

    I have been a follower of orgjunkie for quite some time and I’m just now feeling brave enough to try menu planning. Today is our official first day of summer break, so I think it’s as good a time as any. Wish me luck!

    I can’t tell you how much this simple little meme has simplified my life! (Although I tried, in my meal plan this week.) Thanks so much!

    Enjoy your site! The pie looks delicious. Too bad all I can do is look.

    My 1 year old daughter will love, love, love the pasta and zucchini!

    On the Brown Sugar Chicken…if you’re using a whole chicken…can you still cook for 6-8 hours or will it need longer. I’ve never done a whole chicken in the cockpot.

    Thanks for posting! Love getting ideas here!

    This is my very 1st time actually creating a weekly meal plan (I’m #132 on the link list up there!) — I’ve been reading this blog for awhile, but until now all I could do is drool and wish I could be so together to meal plan. Well, I will continue to drool since there are so many yummy recipes in these menus, but I resolved to commit to creating a weekly meal plan from here on out. We’re only 3 days into this & already my dh is commenting how nice it is to know ahead of time what we’re eating (it’s posted on the fridge!). And I agree.

    So many 1st timers, woohoo. I’m so excited for you ladies!!

    Kelly a thawed whole chicken usually takes 5-6 hours on low in the crockpot. I check it with a meat thermometer before taking it out just to be sure.

    Okay Laura, when you make that awesome looking coconut/lime pie, I will be expecting an invitation! LOL It looks delish!

    agreed, that pie looks delicious!

    I am also back from vacation, and have a new menu plan for this week, including a recipe for a tasty turnip and bean dish. I will serve it Wednesday night at the pool, along with grilled steaks and fruit salad. It is definitely a dish that can be made ahead.

    Happy Menu Plan Monday!

    First time to participate. I’m having some issues with my wordpress update so can’t do links or pics right now. Hopefully I’ll have the problems worked out in time for next week.

    Enjoyed your post, this is my first time on your blog! I left a link above. Our meal planning has been sort of stop-and-go, only just getting into it, but reading everyone else’s ideas is soooo helpful in keeping me motivated!
