Menu Plan Monday ~ July 13 through July 19, 2020

Menu Plan Monday

This was my original meal plan for this week with sides were to be determined later:

2. Cheesy Potatoes
3. Chicken Pot Pie
4. Spaghetti
5. Easy Sausage Quiche
6. Loaded Baked Potatoes
7. Meatloaf
8. Chicken Tenders

And this is what we ended up eating this past week:

Monday: This day I decided to make Egg Roll in a Bowl along with some baked homemade egg rolls . I made enough to have leftovers for lunches this week. I used the egg roll dish to make the egg rolls too. I served steamed broccoli alongside. 

Tuesday: I took chicken out of the freezer on Monday and placed in the fridge to thaw for Tuesday night dinner. I've been wanting chicken tenders for a while now, so I just decided I was going to have to make some, photo above. I also made some homemade cole slaw to go with them.   

Wednesday: There was still chicken left from Tuesday, so I went off menu, cooked it and made Chicken & Chile Chimichangas. 

This is such a simple, but good recipe and one I made back when I was married. I ordered a Chimichanga in the Mexican restaurant we went to on my first real date back in the early 1980s. 

Thursday: Since we've had meat several days in a row, I decided to do a meatless dinner tonight. Loaded Baked Potatoes is what we had for dinner on this night. 

Friday: Dinner tonight was homemade pizza with pepperoni and black olives. I also made a salad to go along with it. 

Saturday: Dinner tonight was grilled chicken, with rice and a side salad. 

Sunday: Dinner today was Spaghetti using sweet Italian sausage, onions, tomatoes, and a new to me sauce from Italy. I also made some garlic bread using us some hamburger buns we had on hand. 

Beverages this week included Sweet Tea, Almond Milk, Sprite, Lemonade, V8-Juice, Pineapple Juice, or YooHoo.

Here is what I'm planning for this week, sides to be determined later:

1. Meatloaf
2. Chicken Pot Pie
3. Cheese Enchiladas
4. Sticky Pineapple Chicken
5. Chow Mein & Egg Rolls
6. Hamburgers with Cheese
7. Loaded Baked Potatoes

Of course this could change based on my energy level that day or any other circumstance. :)

  1. I am going to make coleslaw with one of the cabbages from the garden.

  2. Looks really great! We're still in a very uninspired place on the menu, due to kitchen, so things like leftovers from the freezer are on the menu. I did make a caprese salad, using tomatoes & basil from the garden (and, fresh mozzarella), so that should spice things up a bit.

    1. Thank you, your caprese salad sounds so good and refreshing.

  3. That menu is restaurant quality! I will be truing the recipes you linked.
