Menu Planning Week 7

Week 7 - can you believe it?? I struggle every Sunday coming up with this weekly plan and try very hard not to do too many duplicates. I take into consideration busy nights of the week when I am carting the kids all over town for various activities etc! I'm not going to lie - some of my meals are met with rave reviews and others get 2 thumbs down. My kids (one in particular who shall remain nameless) can be super picky. This has honest to goodness been such a good thing for me, one less thing to fret about each day. I grocery shop on Mondays and the week is all taken care of!

So here it goes... I am going to try to post these every Monday (in the event that anyone may be interested ;) Be sure to check out a contest running over at Organizing Junkie with a fab prize of a year of menu planning through a company called Relish!

Monday - Crock Pot Adobo Chicken (super easy crock pot recipe), rice, broccoli

Tuesday - make your own pizza (mine will be bbq chicken - I love it but nobody else in this house does

Wednesday - tacos

Thursday - spaghetti and meatballs (I make a ton of meatballs at a time so they are all made and prebagged in the freezer)

Friday - Chicken with mascarpone marsala sauce it's a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis that I have made several time before - it's delicious! disclaimer: I am having company this night too :)

Saturday - London Broil, baked potato and salad

Sunday - (family bday party for Kev) hot dogs/hamburgers, yummy pasta salad (will post the recipe next week) and salad

Happy President's Day!!! xo, Brie

If I move closer to you can I come for dinner? I promise to be quiet and I'm not picky. This all sounds so yummy.

Do you get Martha Stewart's Every Day Food magazine? If not, you should. It has great recipes that are simple and usually don't have a long list of ingredients.
I think you'd like it. I use it a lot.
