Menu Plan Monday (Week 2)

Posted by dawnlefler on May 17, 2009 at 6:15 PM

So, here we are at week 2 of my weekly menu planning.  I am really trying to follow the same monthly calendar that I have posted, but I am finding that I am needing to be a bit more creative here lately!  I have recently started a new career that will require a bit of travel in the upcoming weeks.  To make sure that the family still has the yummy (read nutritious not McDonald's) meals that they would when I am home, I am making meals to freeze!  Of course, that also meant that I needed to have a quick "101" course on how to prepare and heat them with daddy!  It also meant printing very explicit directions and lables just incase he forgets the lesson on preparing them!

With that being said, I am altering my weekly menu to flow with the ingredients that I need to make the freezer meals (I'd be crazy not to take advantage of the opportunity to save myself some time!)

Monday:  Chicken Louis Sandwiches (glorified chicken salad sandwiches)

Tuesday:  Pasta Alfredo with Chicken & Broccoli

Wednesday:  Tacos

Thursday:  Steak Salads

Friday:  Sloppy Joes

Saturday:  Chicken Wellington w/rice stuffing

Sunday:  Mexican Shepherds Pie (I think...)

Cheers to another fabulous week!
