Menu Plan Monday :: June 15th - 21st 2009

Posted by Sara in recipesmenu planningcooking

menu plan monday

Well, last week's noteworthy recipes were the Beef Enchiladas and the Mexican Bean salad. The salad was wonderful, much like a traditional marinated bean salad with a kick. The leftovers were great used as a chunky "dip" with tortilla chips. The enchiladas were loved by both Brett and the kids. Brett and Gavin are not fans of tomatoes, especially the canned variety. Since this recipe doesn't call for them (which is unusual for a mexican dish) it suited them just dandy! I ended up making them into a sort of layered casserole after my corn tortillas just fell apart the instant I rolled them up. I thought it was pretty good that way, though. I'll be making it again... and I don't make things more than once unless they are REALLY good. There are just too many recipes out there to try!

I reference everything on the menu with a link to the recipe, unless it's something that doesn't require one. If the link directs you to another website, it means that I have not tried the recipe, and therefore have no idea whether it is good or not. :) If the link leads to a posted recipe here on my blog, it means that it is a tried & true family recipe that we love. I will also revisit some of the recipes I link to and leave comments about how they turned out for us the following week.

So, here's what we have on the menu this week...

Menu Plan Monday :: June 8th - 14th 2009

So, I found this fun new meme that I thought I'd try out. It's run by a mom over at orgjunkie.com. The concept is that if you plan your menu for the week ahead of time, you will save money and enjoy healthier meals. She lists 13 reasons why she does a weekly menu plan, and it makes a lot of sense. It's something that I actually do already, although not necessarily on Mondays. But I should find it fairly easy to adapt. My local grocery store emails me the specials on Sunday night, so I'll be ready to roll Monday morning.

First a disclaimer: Although we do have a family of five, they are all currently 5 years and younger. Which means, we usually end up with a bunch of leftovers. Which also means I do not have to cook every night. Yay! Don't get me wrong, I love to cook. But with three little ones, it's easier to have some leftover nights. So, I generally plan on having leftovers unless I know that a meal will not be large enough to carry over. Also, I don't actually plan breakfast and lunch menus, although I probably should. Two of my kids are in school and my husband is at work. So, it's just me & the baby at lunch-time. I don't really need a plan for that right now. He's into baby and finger food - and I like pretty much the same thing every day. :)

I reference everything on the menu with a link to the recipe, unless it's something that doesn't require one. If the link directs you to another website, it means that I have not tried the recipe, and therefore have no idea whether it is good or not. :) If the link leads to a posted recipe here on my blog, it means that it is a tried & true family recipe that we love. I will also try to revisit some of the recipes I link to and leave comments about how they turned out for us!

So, here's what we have on the menu this week...
