Menu Plan Monday


Meal planning is an good tool for saving money, time, energy, and stress.

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

1. Macaroni and Cheese with Ham, Salad 
2. Big Mac Sloppy Joes
3. Vegetable Lasagna, Salad 
4. Chicken Parmesan
5. Chili 
6. Grilled Chicken Salads 
7. Grilled Salmon, Salad

As always these plans are held loosely. They could change based on my energy level that day or any other circumstance. But it is nice to have some type of plan for the week.

What is on your menu for the week?

      Ingredients:
      1.5 pounds ground beef
      1 small onion, chopped
      salt & pepper to taste
      1 cup Great value secret sauce, or you can use Thousand Island dressing
      5-10 hamburger dill pickles chopped, and more for later
      Hamburger buns
      Cheese

      Cook and drain the ground beef with the onion. Add the salt, pepper, secret sauce, and chopped pickles. Assemble the sandwiches by spreading more of the secret sauce on the top and bottom buns. Then the cheese, lettuce, meat mixture, another bottom bun here if you want and repeat the layers, or you can just add more lettuce, pickles, and the top bun here.

  7. Those Big Mac sloppy joes sound great. Thanks for the recipe. We will try that. I made a large batch of chicken curry this week, and we'll have that & maybe a grilled chicken dish this week. My son cooked on Friday/Sunday & Monday, so those dishes were all super tasty. Now we just have to plug in the gaps.

    Maybe I'll run to the store to pick up some thousand island dressing... ;-)

    1. There are so many recipes online for Big Mac Sauce, you may have the ingredients at home to make your own. It was a really good recipe. We will definitely make them again.

  8. I don’t do menu planning. Maybe I should. Now I sort of plan what to eat on my busiest work days - Monday and Wednesday. I usually eat leftovers.
    You are very organized. 😊
