Menu Plan Monday ~ May 9/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of May 9/16 - recipe links and menu planning inspiration at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Hey friends, happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a nice Mother’s Day yesterday. I had a nice relaxing day here that started off with a delicious breakfast in bed from my youngest. Then my oldest son, who knows the way to his mamas heart, gave me this:

box of potato chips

Isn’t that hilarious…a box of potato chips…such a sweet boy! I don’t think potatoes are technically Paleo but I was able to re-introduce them last year without any problems, and plain chips are a nice treat for me once and awhile. Would this excite anyone else?

Speaking of Paleo, last week was an exciting one for me because I finally got up the nerve to make Paleo mayo and it turned out, whoot! I had fried fish on the menu last week and was able to serve it with creamy coleslaw, so yummy!  I’ve had it on the menu quite a few times in the past but always chickened out making it because I was so intimidated by it, convinced it wouldn’t turn out.  It actually wasn’t hard at all, I used my Vitamix on the lowest speed and ever so slowly poured in the oil to the egg mixture. It’s opened up so many new delicious recipes for me.


I hope you all have a wonderfully organized week ahead of you!!

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Turkey, Bacon and Guacamole Panini (mine will be in salad form)

Tuesday:  Slow Cooker Company Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots

Wednesday: Lemon Rosemary Chicken with Bacon & Garlic Cabbage

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! and for me Paleo Pizza Crust

Saturday: Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Vinaigrette

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    Glad your mayo recipe turned out! I’ve always found that a bit intimidating, too.

    Paninis sound great. I haven’t had one of those in ages!

    Ah, the chips were a perfect gift, weren’t they? Love those gifts when you know your family really gets you. Glad your mayo recipe turned out. I haven’t gotten my nerve up to try that yet.
