Menu Plan Monday – June 14-19

Menu Plan Monday

Did you all have a good weekend? Mine didn’t go quite as planned – I got sick. And getting sick when you have two small children is just not a good thing to do! Brian did a great job taking care of everything, and I had some forced relaxation. I got, for the first time I can remember in years, 8 hours of sleep. It was interrupted once, briefly, by J at 4:15, but it was still great to get that much sleep.

On to my menu plan for the week – we’re keeping things pretty simple.

Monday: We’re trying, thanks to MyBlogSpark, the new Wanchai Ferry Beef & Broccoli meal. Look for my post about it on Tuesday – along with a giveaway also courtesy of MyBlogSpark!

Tuesday: Chick-Fil-A night! Free kids’ meals, plus we’ll use a coupon we have for a free spicy sandwich (which is really good). So, for the cost of one combo, all four of us will get dinner. Not too bad!

Wednesday: Burritos. We do ours with ground beef (seasoned with taco seasoning), Basmati rice, black beans, and shredded cheddar. I might saute up some onions to go with it, too.

Thursday: We’ll grab something quick to eat, because we’re having a game night (courtesy of – they provided the games and everything!) at our house and will need to get ready for that. I’ll post about this next week – keep an eye out for it, because there’s a giveaway to go along with that post too!

Friday: Breakfast for dinner – one of our favorite things to do.

Saturday: Grilled chicken, brown rice, and cooked carrots.

So, there you have it! I’ll try to spice things up with some new recipes next week. In the meantime, be sure to check out the two giveaways I have going on right now:

$25 gift card to the grocery store of your choice, from (ends THIS Wednesday at midnight!)

SAT Test Prep Course (valued at $490) from

My mom also has a great giveaway for a $50 gift card to Family Dollar going right now – be sure to stop by and enter!

    super fab, today we are grilling. After 5 years of marriage we finally broke down and got one. Sish kababs, mmm. We also do breakfast for dinner, usually pancakes and sausage. Chicken sausage that is. The Mr loves it! You have inspired me to plan out my meals for the week
