Menu Plan Monday April 25-30

Menu Plan Monday

First of all, can you believe that the end of April is almost here? Every year seems to fly by, but this one especially so. I’m hoping the next four months slow down a bit, because I’m not ready for J to turn 4 yet! Did you have a good Easter weekend? Ours was good. We even made it to the early service at church, which is an amazing feat if you know us! The boys liked their Easter baskets – we had found some Thomas trains on clearance a while back and saved them for their baskets, and they were a big hit. We didn’t end up doing an egg hunt, but the boys both got to do one at school, at least. Next year I am sure we’ll do one, since both the boys will be old enough to really have fun with it together.

Meal time! I am SO excited because grilling season is here, and we love to grill out. If you have any suggestions for “must haves” on the grill, please send them my way!

Monday: Still not sure at this point what we’ll be having! Ideas?

Tuesday: Do you even need to ask?

Wednesday: Grilled chicken & veggie kabobs, with onion, red pepper and zucchini. We got some wild rice to try that we’ll probably make to go with it.

Thursday: Tomato basil soup & paninis. Yes, a winter meal. But I don’t care! This is one of our favorite meals.

Friday: Fajitas – Grilled chicken and skirt steak, onions, peppers, guacamole, & shredded cheese.

Saturday: Fajita nachos – we’ll have leftover meat with queso & black refried beans on chips.

Have you entered any of my giveaways? I have quite a few up, with more to come this week. I’m also hoping to get up a post about C’s birthday party – I took a ton of pictures and can’t wait to show you! Hope you all have a great week!

    I actually tend to make winter foods during the spring/summer quite often! I’m a huge fan of soups, so that’s probably why.

    Hey Christi! I’m just now getting back into visiting blogs and wanted to stop by and say hey. So what did you guys end up having for dinner tonight? ;-) We were just talking about how we need to buy a new grill now that “summer” is here. I love to grill out during the summer. It makes for easy meals with minimal clean up.

    I just tried making paninis for the first time last week, and I am hooked! Now I’m curious what you’ll end up having tonight!

    We LOVE paninis around here too — I think soup/sandwiches are good year round. :)

    I’ve been in the mood to grill lately too; my favorite things to grill are turkey dogs with grilled mushrooms and red peppers . . . barbecue country ribs . . . and bacon wrapped, cream cheese jalapenos. Hmmmm . . . we might have to have an impromptu grill night now! :)
