menu plan Monday – 07.11.11


It's been sooo long since I've been able to get one of these published. It's my first official week of meal planning in the parsonage and, boy, do we ever need it. I've been picking up groceries, but somehow never seem to get the right things to actually make a meal. It makes such a huge difference in the way my day is ordered – not to mention our budget! – to have a menu plan in place.

A quick note: while most of my family isn't, I am gluten-free and eat meat only occasionally. Any recipes that call for pasta, I just substitute brown rice or quinoa pasta. I skip bread, and eat extra veggies and the grains I can eat instead of meat.

Vietnamese Crockpot Chicken
Brown Rice
Asian Slaw (a bag of slaw mix and my favorite Pampered Chef Asian Dressing)

Pork Chops (marinated in garlic and rosemary from the bush I found outside Tom's office)
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy (made with cornstarch instead of flour)
Steamed Broccoli

Fajitas (add mushrooms – sooo good!)

Tuscan Lemon Chicken
Brown Rice Pilaf

in the mountains – eat out


Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Veggie Fried Rice

Lots of tried and true favorites, one new recipe to try out and a few more I'm wanting to try for next week. Is there anything new and yummy you're trying this week?

This post will be linked to Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday. Looking for meal inspiration? It's a great place to visit!
