Menu Plan Monday

Oh my WORD the weeks fly by, don't they? I'm sitting here typing this thinking, "Didn't I just do this??" I do have to say that I just love planning our meals and cooking for my family. I look so forward to our time at the dinner table each evening. I am also enjoying the idea of sharing our menus online, and not just for the (many yummy) new recipe ideas. One evening last week my husband came home excited about dinner~ he had checked my blog at work to see what we were going to have! Isn't that fun?

The favorite at our house last week was the crock pot chicken tacos. We ended up having them Friday, too. My husband said they reminded him of the tacos he gets at his favorite "taqueria."

Here's what we'll be munching this week:

Monday: BBQ brisket sandwiches, baked sweet potato fries, mixed veggies, salad

Tuesday: Hawaiian Chicken Bake (didn't make this last week), rice, stir-fried veggies, rolls

Wednesday: "Hay and Straw," a fun linguine recipe that I found adapted here at Kisses of Sunshine. I froze the leftovers of the yummy ham from a couple of weeks ago and will use that.

Thursday: gymnastics night, (YO-YO= You're on your own)

Friday: Burgers on the grill, fries, baked beans, salad

Weekend: Sandwiches and leftovers

I hope your week is off to a great start and that you're ready to stir up some fun with those you love this week! For more recipe ideas, visit Laura the Organizing Junkie. Thanks again for hosting us, Laura. Happy Monday, everyone!

"Burgers on the grill"...I can't wait till we can begin doing some grilling. Not quite warm enough.
Your menu sounds good. And by the way my husband does the same thing...cracks me up.
Blessings my friend on your week!

I will have to look at the Crock Pot Chicken Tacos. They sound yummy. I made the Hawaiian Chicken Bake last week and we enjoyed it.

Happy Spring and Happy Cooking!

Cyndi, I love that your husband checked your blog for the menu! That is too cute!

I printed out the crockpot chicken tacos, I know they would be a big hit around here!
