Menu Plan Monday – May 24, 2010

It’s almost Memorial Day Weekend! This is my favorite time of year because my daughter and I have a tradition of going on a roadtrip every Memorial Day weekend. This will be our first year going somewhere I know NOTHING about. Oklahoma City: Watch out, here we come! And we’re on a mission to have fun!

If anyone knows of a ‘must eat at’ restaurant, please let me know.

This week I have everything on hand, so NO grocery bill! Woohoo!

Monday
Supper: Kielbasa Alfredo, Brussel sprouts

Tuesday
Supper: Spinach salad with cucumbers, mushrooms and feta, apple, smoothie

Wednesday
Supper: Chicken Parmesan, baked potato

Thursday
Supper: Leftovers

Friday
We will be on our way to Oklahoma City, so hopefully we’ll find a little off the wall diner on the way.

Saturday
Breakfast: Free breakfast at motel
Lunch: No clue
Supper: Somewhere in Bricktown

Sunday
Breakfast: Free breakfast at motel
Lunch: Visiting Frontier City so I’m sure it won’t be a cheap lunch 😦

Menu Plan Monday – May 17, 2010

I’m not sure what happened to last week. I woke up Saturday morning thinking I had to head to work. What a nice shock to realize I could go back to bed 🙂 My new job is proving to be a good challenge and a lot of fun. My daughter has three weeks left of school and is starting to slack… the end of the school year is always rough.

I didn’t do much cooking last week, mostly because I wasn’t getting much sleep. This week I shopped the sales and planned our meals accordingly. I usually plan then shop, but since they don’t post the ‘Manager Special’ meats in the grocery flyers, I thought I’d shop then plan.

Monday
Supper: Sirloin sizzlers, baked potatoes, brussel sprouts

Tuesday
Supper: Pot roast with potatoes, cheesy cauliflower

Wednesday
Supper: Chicken stirfry, lettuce wedges

Thursday
Supper: Roast beef sandwich, spinach salad

Friday
Supper: Trying something new… eating at a Japanese restaurant

Saturday
Supper: Hot dogs and mac ‘n cheese or leftovers

Sunday
Supper: Tacos, spinach salad

Menu Plan Monday – May 3, 2010

My daughter just came back from an educational trip to Washington DC. It was a great opportunity for her to see history and make friends from around the country. Now that she’s back and my finances are on track, it’s time to do some real meal planning. It feels good to get back into the swing of things.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers and potential mothers out there! I’ll be enjoying free mini-golf with my beautiful daughter on Sunday… reminiscing about how she was a perfect baby and SO MUCH EASIER TO DEAL WITH BACK THEN 🙂

As a single mother of a 13 year old, I couldn’t ask for a more caring and understanding kid. She knows when to hug me and when to let me be. She knows how to have fun and be a goof and she can cheer me up in a second with her humor. Thanks Jaid for being You!

Monday
Supper: Chicken salad sandwich, lettuce wedges with dressing, apple

Tuesday
Supper: Sirloin sizzlers, mashed potatoes, green bean

Wednesday
Supper: Pasta primavera with chicken
