Menu Plan Monday – March 21-26

Menu Plan Monday

This is one of those weekends that feels like it didn’t really happen – it flew by way too fast! Friday I was at home because the boys’ day care was closed, and we had an electrician come to do some work in our bathrooms. This was the first time we’ve had any work done on the house. So far we’ve (code: Brian has) done everything ourselves. The projects we needed done were a little more complicated so I’m glad we hired someone! We had an outlet installed in our master bath, and then in both bathrooms we had our ancient ceiling heaters replaced with heater/exhaust/lighting fixtures. I don’t even know how to describe our old heaters other than to say they basically looked like stovetop elements hanging upside down 18″ or so from the ceiling – UG-LY.  Now our bathrooms look much better and I love having additional light in them.

Friday night we had a family night to Chuck E Cheese and the rest of the weekend was spent being productive around the house and running errands. So now it’s Sunday night and it feels like we should still have one more day to the weekend, but at least we’re off to a good start for the week.

Before I share our menu for the week, I’ve got to mention the Chili’s gift card giveaway I’ve got going on right now – just answer one quick question and you’ll be entered to win a $20 gift card! Speaking of food, I’ll finally get to the point of this post. :)

Monday: Leftovers from tonight’s dinner – we had pasta with pesto sauce, and for leftovers I’ll cook some chicken and green beans to go with it.

Tuesday: We’re eating out with some friends, but not sure where!

Wednesday: My mom’s green chile chicken enchilada casserole. We haven’t had this in a while and it makes great leftovers. I’m all about leftovers this week.

Thursday: Did I mention leftovers? We’ll be having them!

Friday: Baked potato pizza – this is a new recipe I put together after tasting this out at a pizza place. To get the recipe you’ll have to read my guest post on Saturday (3/26) over at Saving Dollars and Sense.

Saturday: Chicken teriyaki with brown rice & veggies

Have an absolutely wonderful week, everyone!

    Ha — we’re having a leftover theme this week too! Some weeks, it’s just NICE not to do a lot of cooking.
