Menu Plan Monday

It's been a weird weekend since everyone is off today- does not quite feel like Monday! I hope that you are all enjoying your long weekends! Here is our plan for the week:

Monday: Leftovers! We have meatloaf and a pasta dish from this weekend. We grilled out yesterday, so that's out of the way!

Tuesday: Something with the chicken thighs on sale at Publix. I am thinking of trying CrockPot 20-40 Clove Garlic Chicken or CrockPot Brown Sugar Chicken. The Brown Sugar Chicken gets rave reviews on-line. I made it with chicken breasts and it was not great. It was dry, which is weird for something that comes from the CrockPot. I am willing to give it a second change with the thighs, though, since they have more fat. The garlic was also too big, so if I do this one, I will be mincing the garlic.

Wednesday: London Broil- On sale at Publix last week for $2.49! I managed to find a small one and covered it in marinade and put it into a zip lock bag in the freezer, so it's waiting for me. Because it's small, we should not have left overs.

Thursday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches from the freezer, homemade coleslaw

Friday: Spaghetti with meat sauce (since Ragu and pasta are on sale at Publix this week!)

Saturday: Turkey Dinner complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. I will use the leftovers next week for Turkey Pot Pie and Turkey Enchiladas, most likely. Details on the why of this in coming posts...

I hope that everyone has a wonderful week!


  1. London Broil sounds delicious right now. I'll have to add it to our next bi-weekly shopping trip.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    I hope you and your family had a very nice Memorial Day.
    Happy MPM.

  2. This is my favorite chicken thigh recipe:

    So yummy!!

  3. Sounds very yummy! I almost always have better luck with chicken thighs instead of breasts in the crock pot. Will be interesting to see how it turns out for you!
