Menu Plan Monday 7/26/2010

Since I'm shopping a lot this weekend to try and keep up with the eating needs for a growing family of boys, I thought the above picture was an accurate description of what I will be doing.

Shopping, shopping, and MORE shopping.  

We have been fairly good at sticking to our menu plan this week and I did post a review on the Tex Mex Burgers with Cajun Mayo. was really good!  The recipe is listed in an earlier post but can also be found at  Unfortunately, I have to copy and paste the actual recipe as the linking capability isn't working.  We only changed up what we were having on Wednesday because we went to MOE's for FREE queso and it sure was yummy.  So Thursday's meal from last week is rolling forward.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to find out what we're doing, and leave a comment, I would love to check out what you are eating this week and get new ideas.  Another great resource to find new ideas is at  Laura keeps all of us menu plan mondayers on track.
