Menu Plan Monday 6/26/17

LAST WEEK'S REVIEW:

Adding blackberries and White Peach Balsamic/Wild Fernleaf Dill Olive Oil {equal parts} Dressing took this simple spinach salad to the next level.

Being a fan of all things citrus and tangy, this recipe makes my top five for taste and convenience.  I used a rotisserie chicken that I purchased and removed from the bone on Sunday to make a quick Tuesday night meal.  The cilantro-lime rice was bypassed in favor of Trader Joes' Organic Frozen Jasmine Rice because I was feeling a tad worn out from the day.  Three minutes on high in the microwave and voila, side dish done.  The only thing missing is my "required for a real meal" green.  I made up for missing my vegetables with lunch the next day by eating a repeat spinach salad.

Spaghetti with Pumpkin Chipotle Sauce
Toast with butter that is obviously still too cold to spread.
The meat in this sauce is ground chicken that I purchased at a really good price, so good in fact, that I bought seven {yes, I know I'm only cooking regularly for two} packages.  I have become a huge fan of this particular brand of ground chicken which works nicely anywhere you might have used ground beef.

OPTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:

**Grilled Sirloin Steak, Pearled Couscous, Skillet Green Beans, Quick Rolls

**Curried Chicken Bits, Basmati Rice, Sugar Snap Peas

**Asian Stuffed Peppers, Steamed Broccoli



**Hacienda Hash Brown Casserole {make half}, Whole Wheat Toast

**Baked Nectarine Chicken Salad, Spinach Salad

DESSERT OPTIONS FOR THIS WEEK:



I didn't make any of the other items {besides what is pictured} planned so next week's menu must look pretty familiar if you just so happened to stumble on my last post.  I had forgotten that Ty was house sitting for his brother so I had plenty of leftovers to round out my nightly meals.  The best thing though, is that I have all of the ingredients required to make what I had planned without heading to the store.

Have a great week 😃
