Menu Plan Monday - Week of 11/10

I'm planning on finishing up some freezer cooking for the month this week. I'm also going to attempt to get at least one batch of cookie dough in the fridge every day this week.

Eric and I are excited for a date night on Saturday. We will be going to a wonderful restaurant in an old hotel, and we'll be able to use our business trade dollars. That means we'll only need cash for tax and the tip. We are fortunate with these trade dollars and do take advantage of them on occasion to splurge on ourselves in ways that we wouldn't otherwise.

So here's what we'll be eating for the rest of the week.

Breakfast

  • M - Doughnuts
  • T - Banana muffins (x3 for freezer) & smoothies
  • W - Crepes w/ cinnamon apples
  • Th - French toast (x2 for freezer) & sausage
  • F - Cheesy scrambled eggs & leftover biscuits
  • S - Cranberry poppy seed bread & smoothies
  • Su - Muffins from freezer
Lunch
  • M - Tuna pasta salad & pears
  • T - Quesadillas w/ black bean & pineapple salsa
  • W - Hummus, pita chips (made from homemade pita bread), & celery sticks
  • Th - PB & honey, yogurt, grapes
  • F - Leftovers
  • S - Pizza pockets (x3 for freezer), applesauce
  • Su - Breakfast casserole, oven-fried potatoes
Dinner
  • M - Black bean & rice wet burritos (x2 for freezer)
  • T - Blackened chicken, cheesy potatoes, green beans (+2 other chicken dishes for freezer)
  • W - Olive stuffed shells (x2 for freezer), breadsticks
  • Th - Unstuffed pepper soup (x2 for freezer), biscuits
  • F - Thai peanut noodles & stir-fry veggies
  • S - E & K date night, Kids - tuna casserole
  • Su - Chicken Francese, garlic spaghetti, sauteed zucchini

Sounds great - I will have to check out your freezer meals.

I included a link on my menu to your site since I am trying your curry chicken crepes this week!!!

Will be watching for lots more ideas! Thanks for sharing!

Sounds like another yummy week. Olive stuffed shells? Is the filling similar to a tapenade? Enjoy the date night.

Your menu sounds really good this week. I followed the link to see the pizza pockets and I think my boys will have fun making those.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
