Meal Plan Monday: A Lazy Spring Break Week

Meal Plan Monday

Good Monday morning everyone and welcome to the Spring Break edition of MPM on FHM&M.  (Wayyyyy too many acronyms there)  Maybe the “lazy” should simply be for the cooking.  This week is going to be a week of no new recipes (unlike spring breaks in the past with meal plan challenges).

So, what does this week look like?

Here we go!!!

Saturday:  ate at the hotel in Dallas

Sunday:  After the trip and a large lunch at Taco Cabana, I wasn’t hungry.  Muffin ate pizza.  Josh made a sandwich from the boneless ribs left over.  I eventually ate a piece of the yummy peppered maple turkey we bought at Central Market.

Monday:  nuggets, fries, celery sticks and dip


Tuesday:  Ranch Chicken Enchiladas x 2, rice, beans

Wednesday:  Pepperoni Pizza Lasagna (recipe forthcoming), salad bar salad

Thursday:  leftovers or hot dogs

Friday:  pizza rolls x several to freeze, corn

Saturday:  Imperial Cathay Style Shredded Pork with Garlic Sauce, egg roll


Sunday:  Smothered Chicken, rice, broccoli

What’s on your meal plan for this week?


Meal Plan Monday: The Adapting Recipes Edition

Meal Plan Monday

This week is kind of a crazy week.  I’m trying a few new recipes, well, adapting them really, but Josh is on call.  So, I’m hoping to pack him those meals on the days when he is working.  As he is off but on call today and Tuesday, I am really hoping to leave him instructions for things that need to be done.

The recipes that I’m adapting are the Pork with Garlic Sauce (from My Recipe Journey’s Jalapeno Pork with Garlic Sauce) and Sloppy Joes (from Life in the Lofthouse’s Sloppy Joe Squares).

I also am including one slow cooker recipe, a return of one that Josh loved (the Honey Sesame Chicken from Six Sisters’ Stuff).

So, here it is for the week:

Saturday:  Pork with Garlic Sauce (from My Recipe Journey’s Jalapeno Pork with Garlic Sauce) over rice

Sunday:  Monterey Chicken (from Six Sisters’ Stuff), crescent rolls, mixed veg, and some Claussen pickles I bought on clearance at Kroger for $1.25

Monday:  Oven Fried Pork Chops (from Better Homes and Gardens), cole slaw, strawberries, and grapes (with homemade bread)

Tuesday:  Spaghetti with Italian Sausage, homemade bread, leftover cole slaw or another green veg

Wednesday:  Honey Sesame Chicken over rice, leftover bread with dipping sauce (balsamic vinegar, oil, salt, pepper), green veg, strawberries or grapes

Thursday:  sloppy joes, fruit, veg

Friday:  mini pizzas

Saturday:  Monterey Chicken on buns (if any left over)

Sunday:  Roast Chicken in Crockpot

My goal for the week (now that we are off on Monday for a supposed winter storm that didn’t happen) is to get everything prepped today.  And, as always, I plan on linking up at OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.

What’s on your plan for the week?
