It has been a long long time since I posted a menu plan here. I always make one, and lately we’ve been trying to eat from our pantry and deep freezer as much as possible, but I seem to constantly fail at posting it.
This week I’m pretty proud of myself because I’ve got some yummy stuff on the menu…
Sunday, July 29:
Lunch — Leftover pizza from Mellow Mushroom and nachos.
Dinner — Korean Beef and brown rice (I honestly can’t believe how well-received this was when I made it a couple of weeks ago. It’s just ground beef and a couple of other ingredients, but it was SO good!)
Monday, July 30:
Lunch — Mac & Cheese
Dinner — Spanish Garlic Chicken (Wildtree seasoning), mashed potatoes, and sweet corn.
Tuesday, July 31:
Lunch — Tuna salad sandwiches and applesauce
Dessert — Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (some for us and some for Jason to take on his night flight at work).
Dinner — Penne with meat sauce (with some left over for Jason to take to work for lunch).
Wednesday, August 1:
Lunch — Grilled cheese sandwiches and potato chips
Dinner — Balsamic Chicken, lemon potatoes, carrots, Blueberry Buckle, and fresh whipped cream. I’ll be cooking up all of this earlier in the afternoon to take over to my good friend Becca. They just added another beautiful girl to their family a week ago and our local military spouses’ club has a Sunshine Committee that volunteers to help out families when they could use a few blessings.
Thursday, August 2:
Lunch — Hot dogs and homemade fries.
Dinner — Barbacoa tacos (I haven’t made this is *forever*) and fruit cocktail.
Friday, August 3:
Lunch — We’re headed out to Dauphin Island to participate in the festivities for Coast Guard Day. I sure hope it’s a nice sunny day instead of thunder and rain!
Dinner — Homemade Pizza. After a long fun afternoon at the beach, something quick and easy for dinner will fill the bill. I’ll make up the dough on Thursday to rise in the fridge overnight and then all I have to do for dinner on Friday is press it out on the pizza stone, add toppings, and bake it off.
Saturday, August 4:
Lunch — Sausage & Cheese Crescent Squares and some fresh sliced fruit. It’s been quite a while since I made this also and it will be a perfect brunch meal since we tend to sleep in and laze around on Saturday mornings.
Dinner — We might be going to a local fish restaurant right on the bay with some friend. Erica is turning 40 and wants to celebrate with some friends. Way to embrace it! We’re hoping to go, but we’re not sure of Jason’s work schedule that night, so it’s still a maybe. If we wind up not being able to go, then we will probably meet up at the galley and have dinner with my honey so he won’t be lonely stuck at work all night.
