Week 407 Menu


Hi everyone!  Hope you are all enjoying June!  Here's a little peek at most of our garden.  It's starting to sprout and so fun to watch things grow.  I'm determined to stay on top of the weeds this year...hopefully that lasts all summer!  We have quail that live in our "field" where our garden is located and they like to munch on the new sprouts, so I covered them all with mesh held down with rocks.  Hope it all survives!
  
We still have 9 more days until school is out.  This morning I was feeling it as I made my kids' lunches for what feels like the millionth time.  Next year, they're making their own.  (I think I say that every year and my daughter is almost in 8th grade!)

Anyway...This week is a little bit busy in the evenings, so menu planning is definitely needed!

Here goes...

Monday:  chicken stirfry

Tuesday:  spaghetti

Wednesday:  beef enchiladas

Thursday:  chicken pot pie

Friday: Italian sausage and potato soup

Saturday:  try cheddar ranch burgers

Sunday:  leftovers or family's choice

That's my plan for the week.  What about you?  What's on YOUR menu this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.

Week 405 and 406

I'd rather be kayaking on the river, than going through piles of school work.  We've still got two more weeks of school.  I can feel summer calling....

I'm posting two menus this week...last week's and this week's. My husband was out of town last week, so that means that I am a little less organized at dinner time than usual.  I actually planned my week out on Tuesday this week, but didn't get around to posting it until now.  (Yay!)

So, here goes.  TWO week's of what we ate (or are going to eat).


Last week we ate:

Monday:  my daughter made super yummy chicken taquitos and homemade salsa

Tuesday:  cedar planked teriyaki grilled salmon, rice, broccoli

Wednesday: pizza party

Thursday: pancakes

Friday: fed the missionaries - breakfast burritos (eggs, hashbrowns, turkey sausage or bacon, cheese, homemade salsa wrapped in a tortilla) 

Saturday: leftovers

Sunday:  Asian BBQ chicken, cous cous, veggies


AND.....this week's menu:

Monday:  Memorial Day - grilled pizza

Tuesday: Swedish meatballs, steamed red potatoes, IKEA gravy and lingonberry, broccoli, green salad

Wednesday:  leftover meatballs

Thursday:  grilled chicken fajitas

Friday:  easy

Saturday: easy

Sunday:  grilled steak and sides

I'm loving the warm weather, the fresh fruit stocked in my fridge and almost every meal cooked on the grill.  Love summer!  

What about you?  What are you making/eating/planning this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!

Week 404 Menu

Hi all!  I thought I'd put off putting away my groceries a little longer, but actually posting my menu this week.  I just posted what we ACTUALLY ate last week.  It was a pretty yummy week, so check it out if you need some ideas.  

Hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine was great...full of good intentions, sweet hand-drawn cards and homemade gifts, lots of hugs and people wishing "Happy Mother's Day."  

Love these kiddos...crazy as they are.  (This wasn't yesterday...because I didn't make my kids take an obligatory Mother's Day picture...didn't want to push my luck.  Haha!)  This was last week when we ate al fresco for the first time this year.  

Menu planning time:

Monday:  we're having leftovers (so much good food in my fridge -- see THIS POST to see what we ate last week)


Wednesday:  French Dip

Thursday:  Salmon

Friday:  Grilled Flatbread Pizza

Saturday:  easy night

Sunday:  TBD - going to let my family pick, most likely grill something

That's what we're having this week.  What about you?  What are you having this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do!

Week 403 Menu: What we ACTUALLY ate

Hi there!  Just noticed that I haven't posted AT ALL in May and it's already halfway over.  The first week of May my daughter and I went on the best mother-daughter trip to see some of our favorite people from New Mexico, whom we haven't seen since we moved over two years ago.  I went to BYU Women's Conference and my daughter and her friend hung out and got spoiled by grandparents.  

Last week we were getting back into the groove of things after being gone.  I actually made dinner almost every night, but never posted my menu, so I thought I should do it now...you know, because if I don't blog about it, then it's like it never happened.  :)

Monday:  we had breakfast burritos with homemade salsa

Tuesday:  we had sandwiches

Wednesday:  we had grilled pork chops, orzo pilaf, broccoli and fruit

Thursday:  we had turkey quinoa taco skillet (I love to eat this for lunches in taco salad form!!!)

Friday:  my family had BBQ chicken tinfoil dinners and I had the yummiest pesto margherita chicken  at Twig's with some friends at a baby shower/dinner out.  

Saturday:  pizza - I got my favorite thin crust veggie since it was practically Mother's day

Sunday:  my family helped with dinner - 7up grilled chicken, potato salad (w/out eggs since I'm a hater), my daughter made salsa, veggies, fruit and to-die-for lemon brownies

What about you?  Do you remember what you ate last week?  It's a great brain exercise to try to remember...for me at least.  :)

Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.

Cedar-Planked Teriyaki Grilled Salmon

Cedar-planked teriyaki grilled salmon is my pickiest eater's favorite meal!  He requested it for his 7th birthday last summer.  And just this last Sunday he told his teacher at church that it was his favorite healthy food.  


My family doesn't really love seafood, probably because I didn't eat much of it growing up because I "didn't like it."  I still can't stand shrimp (unless it's so breaded and fried that you can't tell it's shrimp) and I've never eaten lobster or scallops.  We are slowly branching out beyond our favorite Broiled Parmesan Tilapia into other fish, like salmon.  I've been making this recipe for two years now and every one loves it.
