Menu Plan Monday 6/21/10


Even though I didn't do well last week....it is what it is!

I have slaved and prepared for the week like a warrior!  I have been used to coming home at around 4:30 during the week and since I changed where I work most of the time....it's after 5.  Needless to say, boys who are used to eating at 5:30 or 6:00 with the kitched cleaned by 7 are not happy when things don't go according to their plan!

So unlike last week.....failure is not an option!

Thanks to Laura for hosting a great site to keep me on track each week.  This site can help you stay on track too!

ONLY, non complicated easy, peasy, this week.

  • SUNDAY--Grilled Ribeyes, Baked Beans, Baked Potatoes in the Crockpot*(love, love, love doing these in the slow cooker), Veggie  To Do:  chop salad, grill chicken breasts, chop veggies for steaming on Tuesday.
  • MONDAY--Grilled Chicken Salad, Quick Rolls  To Do:  place pork tenderloin in the crockpot.
  • TUESDAY--Crockpot Pork, Buttered Noodles, Green Veggie  To Do: Brown Ground Beef
  • WEDNESDAY--Sloppy Creole Joes, Tater Tots, Corn  To Do:  Soak Beans, boil 10 minutes and put crockpot together for tomorrow
  • THURSDAY--Coconut Red Beans and Rice, Veggies
  • FRIDAY--EAT AT MOM'S!
There it is, even with a To Do every day.  Hopefully this will keep me on track with my late get home schedule.

As Always.............HAPPY MONDAY!

*Recipe for Crock Pot Potatoes
DRY washed potatoes, wrap in foil.  Cook for 8-10 hours on low.  Don't add any liquid.  Basically the cooker functions as an oven.  It keeps the kitchen cool.  For more details visit here (that's where I got the idea)
