Menu Plan Monday ~ August 25/14


My brother and his family are here!  I don’t get to see my family very often as they live on the other side of Canada practically (it feels like it anyway) so it’s a huge treat to have them come visit me here in Alberta.  This is only the second time my brother has been here and the first time for his family.  Can’t wait to show them around and just catch up on life.

Menu Planning Resources:

While I was blog hopping looking for recipes for this week I stopped in at the Eat at Home blog where I found the recipe below for the Hawaiian Grilled Chicken.  While I was there though I also found this great post on 13 recipes using rotisserie chicken.  I love the rotisserie chickens that come cooked and ready to go from the grocery store.  It’s one of my favorite dinner cheaters especially considering it costs the same to purchase a cooked chicken as it does to buy something similar uncooked (at least here anyway).


Have a wonderfully organized week everyone!!!

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday:  Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork served with Caesar Salad

Tuesday:  Homemade Pizza (using the bread machine for the dough)

Wednesday: Taco Salad

Thursday:  Spaghetti Ham Bake (this recipe makes 2 9×13 pans)

Friday:  My brother leaves in the afternoon so my family will just be keeping it simple for dinner: Bacon, Brie and Raspberry Paninis

Saturday:  Hawaiian Grilled Chicken served with baked potatoes and grilled veggies

Sunday:  YOYO (you’re on your own)

    Have a wonderful visit. It is so nice seeing family. My mom is coming down from Sask. in the next few weeks and we haven’t seen her for 4 years.
    Also thank you for the rotisserie chicken pin!
