Menu Planning Monday:

Well this week I return to work for a few days so my meals need to be quick and definitely planned out. We are going out of town for the holiday so I also included those meals. I have been lagging on going to the grocery store so last weeks meals used a good chunk of my stock pile, although, I was still able to make a little extra in some cases to freeze. This week I am going to try three new recipes. I am not sure if the order here will change, but I hope to make all of these meals. I hope you enjoy your week.

This week’s meals:

Sunday: Three Bean Stew/Chili over brown rice

Monday: Curried Rice and Shrimp (Real Simple Magazine) and an Asian inspired salad

Tuesday: Chicken with creamy spinach (Real Simple Magazine) and chicken rice

Wednesday: Brats, French fries and veggies

Thursday: Egg Frittata with sausage and veggies (something simple because I am making freezer jam with a friend after dinner, plus I have to work all day)

Friday: BBQ, baked beans, grilled veggies (Out of Town)

Saturday: Pork Tacos, Spanish rice with a salad and taco fixings (Out of Town)

Working all day on Thursday is no excuse. Your husband expects no less than a 3-course meal ready for him when he gets home!

...a nice shoulder massage is also appreciated when he steps in the door.
