How last week’s menu went:
There were definitely some changes to last week’s menu. I was a little indecisive about my Monday meal. I ended up making the Hearty Lentil Soup (I add celery, add chopped spinach instead of parsley, and only use 1/2 tsp of the balsamic vinegar) and the Oatmeal Blueberry Applesauce Muffins. Both great choices.
On Thursday I realized that I had set myself up with a casserole-heavy week. The weather was beautiful and I decided to marinate some chicken breasts to be grilled instead of making the Chicken Divan, Lightened Up (but it’s still a favorite). We put the grilled chicken on a spinach salad. Perfect!
On Saturday we ended up going on a spontaneous day trip to visit some wonderful friends (Who fed us yummy things like steak and homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream, by the way!), so I moved the Corned Beef to Sunday. I’m sure you understand.
Favorite meal from last week:
Of the meals we made here, I’m going to pick the Taco Casserole as the favorite. All 5 of us loved it. And there was not a crumb left.
This Week’s Menu Plan
Sunday I was really late getting the corned beef going, so the kids ate pizza quesadillas and we ate the corned beef after they were in bed.
- Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage (I used potatoes and yellow onion instead of parsnips and pearl onions)
- leftover Shamrock Cake
- Jim’s Famous Hamburgers
- Beautiful Burger Buns (first time I used this recipe – loved it!)
- fruit salad
- raw veggies
- Steak Salad with leftover steak our friends sent us home with! So nice! I’m planning to make it kind of like this recipe. I think it’s hard to go wrong with a steak salad. Yum.
- I think we are going out to eat for my new secret shopper job.
