Menu Plan Monday!

Happy Monday! Even though I no longer work outside the home, we still know it's Monday around here. Dad goes back to work after the weekend and the Little Bear and I get back into our week day routine, unstructured as it is! I was so organized this week that I had my meals planned out on Saturday- if I could only remember to post them then, we might have something here.

By the way, Tyler came up with his own meal plan this morning- he decided a bug would be an excellent Monday morning breakfast. No one tell my husband, okay?? I assume that the little guy crawled in sometime last night and was discovered by my little Fear Factor contestant this morning. That will teach me to be slow with the oatmeal! Please tell me this has happened to other moms out there, okay??

So- for the actual non-bug meals this week:

Monday: Chicken with Peanut Curry Sauce- except I don't think that I bought limes, so we will be enjoying without limes

Tuesday: Spiced Pot Roast in the Crock Pot- this is what you get when Pot Roast is on sale for $1.97 per lb! I will cook the entire thing, then freeze half for another meal.

Wednesday: Chicken on the Grill- hubby requested this one! Since so many salad dressings have been available free or almost free lately, we will probably use that as a marinade, or maybe this

Thursday: The last of the Swedish Meatballs from my wonderful mother-in-law will be making their appearance.

Friday: Chicken Alfredo based on this recipe from the Crock Pot Lady! Yummy!!!!

Have a great week!


  1. Ooooh, your menu sounds yummy!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I bought that same garlic at Aldi's . . . it was not until I got home that I noticed that it was "Great Wall Garlic". My first thought was, "Isn't anything produced in the US anymore?"

  3. Our carpet fuzz seems to look amazingly like Cheerios. I'm frequently fishing nasty things out of my 1 year old's mouth. Thanks for sharing your menu plan at

  4. Chicken Alfredo in the crock pot?! I will have to try it! Thanks!

  5. Hi Joy! Yes, Chicken Alfredo in the Crock Pot! We actually had it last night and it was yummy! Good luck!
