Menu Plan Monday ~ Jan 18/16

Menu Plan Monday - recipe ideas and menu planning inspiration for the week of Jan 18/16

Hi everyone! How are you today? We enjoyed a very very cold weekend here (-30C/-22F) but I loved every minute of it. I love the cold weather with the bright sun shiny days. Of course we can’t stay out in it long but we can go for drives (with heated seats!) and get our Vitamin D that way. Bella loves it too, isn’t she sweet ๐Ÿ™‚

sunny day drive

We’ve got a busy week ahead so you’ll notice that this reflects in my menu plan.ย  Keep it simple when you know you are going to be busy, quick and easy and keep stress away.

Recipe Highlight:

One recipe that I absolutely loved from last week was this one for Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. Oh my goodness, so good and it created a delicious little sauce that I couldn’t get enough of.ย  Highly recommend!

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week.

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Maple Bacon Pancake Bars

Tuesday:ย  Eggs Baked in Portobello Mushrooms served with spinach salad and Honey Lime Dressing

Wednesday:ย  Skinny Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! and for me Easy, No Mayo, Throw Together Tuna Salad

Saturday: Hot & Sweet Ginger-Garlic Chicken Thighs served with rice and broccoli

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    So glad you shared the pork tenderloin recipe this week! I have it on my menu later in the week, but I had not idea how I was going to cook it! Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The shrimp scampi with zucchini noodles sounds so good! We’ve been eating low carb for a few months and I’m desperately in need of some new recipes because we are getting tired of our old favorites.

    Have a great week!

    I’m not a fan of the cold (we have it today) but I do like your idea of taking a drive in it! We need to do something to get out of the house for a bit. I definitely need to check out that recipe for the maple bacon pancake bars, sounds yummy!
