Week 2 Menus -- starting 8/25/08

All right, here's my next week's menus. Go ahead and post your menus in the comment area. If you don't know what you're going to make this week tell me what you made last week. I'm all about getting new menu ideas!

**I didn't end up making all of my menus from last week, so I have a few repeats.

Monday -- chicken salad pitas (find my recipe here)
Tuesday -- tacos
Wednesday -- chicken chimichangas
Thursday -- spaghetti with turkey meatballs
Friday -- pineapple sesame chicken w/rice & veggies (find the recipe here)
Saturday -- it's the 1st BYU football game of the season, so we'll probably grill or have pizza
Sunday -- crockpot chicken stroganoff

Okay, that was kind of a struggle trying to figure out what to make this week. I guess I need some help!


  1. Great idea Jenny, I have no idea what we are having this week since Mark is out of town it will be simple esay meals. I do know what we are going to have tonight though, I'm making hamburger pockets, my kids love them and I think they are pretty good too. here's the recipe :

    dough - 1Tbs yeast, 1/4 C. water mix together and let sit 5 minutes.
    add 1 egg, 1/4 C sugar, 1/4 C oil, 1tsp. salt and 1 cup of hot milk (I just microwave milk for 1
    minute) add 1 cup flour. stir or mix until smooth then add enough flour to make a soft dough , non sticky dough.

    Brown ground beef with onions or onion powder if you like.
    grate cheese
    pinch off dough and make about a 4-5 inch circle
    top dough with cheese and ground beef , fold up sides of dough and pinch together making a little pocket flip over so seem is on the bottom and place them on a greased baking sheet.

    bake for about 15 minutes ( until golden) at 400 degrees.

    then we dip ours in ketchup and mustard, well I'm the only one that likes mustard, but they're pretty tastey. enjoy!

  2. Love the blog sis! Thanks for the invite! I am actually just working on what we'll be eating all week, so this was a great email to come across! Tonight, we are having "all day salsa chicken" from the crock pot. All you need is 3-4 (frozen is even ok) boneless skinless chicken breasts (so costco ones are PERFECT), 1 can of cream of chicken soup (I get the healthy cooking kind), and 16 oz of salsa! ( I like the peach salsa from costco!) Then, cook slowly for 6-8 hours and VOILA! You can sprinkle some jack cheese on it and serve with spanish rice, or just some salad and fresh fruit like I'm going to do tonight!

  3. Ok, I was working on a new blog and that name came up! I am the salsa chicken lady! I think your menu for this week looks awesome, and I might need some of the recipes!!

  4. I don't know about this week...the thought of food today isn't that appealing. Last week we had crock pot roast, Wendy's, crock pot "Country Chicken" (Maggie's recipe), leftovers, pancakes, and tacos from a local (really yummy) inexpensive (love that) Mexican place. I know, not many ideas to work with there. Maybe I'll get it together soon!

  5. I love this idea! I needed some fresh new ideas and recipes!(I got the blog address from Marci, hope you don't mind me joining!) Sounds like a delicious meal plan for this week! I started doing a menu list at the beginning of the summer and found it a lot easier to cook and plan for meals. I actually had been trying a two week meal plan and found it helped cut down the cost of groceries because I could plan ahead and cut back on the last minute grocery shopping, as well as pick meals that use similar ingredients. Just an idea though as the menu list gets easier to come up with. Here was one of the lists:
    Friday- Chinese (sweet & sour chicken and ham fried rice)
    Sat -(Picnic) sandwiches & chips
    Sun - Cheeseburger rice
    Mon - Homade pizza
    Tues - Ham and potatoes
    Wed - Navajo tacos
    Thurs - Spaghetti
    Fri - BBQ chicken
    Sat - Chicken Burritos
    Sun - Lasagna
    Mon - Enchiladas
    Tues - Chicken Potato Bake
    Wed - Quesadillas
    Thurs - Marci's Old Fashion Mac & Cheese. So my grocery list for the two weeks included rice, chicken, spaghetti sauce, cheese, hamburger, potatoes, tortillas, etc. I'll get some easy and delicious recipes once I finish unpacking them (we just moved to Oklahoma). Thanks and happy eating! -Michelle Thomson

  6. Melissa -- Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to try it.

    Suz -- I love crockpot recipes! Thanks for sharing! The kids were talking about Tommy and Whitney-bear the other day. Miss you guys!

    Melinda -- Thanks for sharing your menus! Sounds good to me. I wish that there was a good cheap taco place here. You'd think that since it's New Mexico that we'd have something like that.

    Michelle -- Thanks for posting! Your ideas sound great! I love having two weeks of menus planned out. What a time saver! Feel free to share any of your recipes. They all sound great!

  7. Jen,
    I really like what you've done with this blog! The pictures are great too! I'm looking right now for something for supper. Thanks again for these ideas.
