Meal Plan Monday: Try a New Recipe to Shake Things Up

Meal Plan Monday

Several blogs that advocate menu planning propose and promote the concept of a meal rotation. I am not organized enough for a monthly, weekly, or even bi-weekly menu rotation. Instead, I menu plan around what I have on hand, what has been recently on sale, or what our tastes and schedules are around a particular time.

Plus, it’s fun to shake things up every now and then with a new recipe. Now, I am not necessarily advocating something on the scale of The Spring Cleaning New Recipe Challenge every week. If you have the time, energy, and resources to do so, great! But, I’m talking about trying a new recipe once a meal plan or so—another way to break up the monotony.

The new recipe for this week is Crock Pot Gyros. I love eating gyros from the Red River Revel, the local arts festival that occurs in Shreveport, Louisiana, in early October, but they are so expensive! (Like $8 for the gyro alone). I am really hoping that this recipe works!


Anyway, here is the plan for the week with the new recipe added. I have two planned eat-outs, tonight (because we are traveling) and Saturday (Muffin’s birthday at Chuck E. Cheese).


Monday: fried chicken with the fixins

Tuesday: Taco Tuesday, baby!

Wednesday: brinner (breakfast for dinner)

Thursday: Crock Pot gyros from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures

Friday: leftovers (If there are any)

Saturday: Muffin’s birthday celebration at Chuck E. Cheese’s

Sunday: Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken

As usual, I will be linking up at OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.

What’s on your plan for the week?
