Meal Plan Monday

Another busy weekend down and another busy week lies ahead.   Lots of sports, piano, a birthday, and another snow storm all on the schedule this week. 

Monday - I am going to try Barefoot Contessa's Lemon Chicken (linked) from my new How Easy is That?  Cookbook! 

Tuesday - Beef Stew over Egg Noodles

Wednesday - sports night - hot dogs and fruit - we are expecting a big snowstorm Tues into Wed so I am seriously thinking about flip flopping Tues/Wed because in all likelihood sports will be canceled that  night and beef stew would be the better snowed in night kind of dinner.

Thursday - mucho busy sports night and an open house at the high school (how is my oldest starting high school next year??!) but.... my oldest is turning 14 today so we're having Baked Stuffed Shrimp (her choice).  I'm going to have to have my act together BIG TIME today to pull this one off. 

Friday - sports night - Make your own pizza with a REALLY easy homemade dough recipe that I am going to blog later this week, so DO stay tuned. 

Saturday - Steaks on the grill, salad, baked stuffed potatoes

Sunday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, salad

I'm compiling a list of my quick "sports night" dinners so when I have a decent collection, I'll put them up!  Have a great week!  xo, Brie

Sounds delicious! It's a beef stew kind of day here. We got about 6-7" of snow last night!

Wow can I come over just to eat??
I am dying to read your homemade dough recipe!! We are gearing up for the snow storm too!

Num, everything sounded delish. I can't wait to see the pizza dough recipe. I have been thinking about getting a bread machine (at a thrift store of course) just for times when I want to mix up some bread dough or a pizza crust.

Good for you for menu planning! That was my new year's resolution this year, and so far so good! It's that planning ahead that will let you have stuffed shrimp this week!
