Menu Plan Monday | May 2nd

Here's what we're having for dinner this week. What's on your plan?

Monday: Santa Fe Chicken Casserole

Last week I asked on Facebook if anyone else was trying to eat from the pantry.  Heather commented that she was and one of her planned dinners was Santa Fe Chicken Casserole.  She found the recipe on a Philidelphia Cooking Creme.  Guess what I have in my fridge?  Santa Fe Philidelphia Cooking Creme.  Thanks Heather!

Tuesday: Chuck Roast, Carrots & Potatoes

Chuck Roasts are BOGO this week at Jungle Jim's.  A slow cooked chuck roast with carrots and potatoes is one of my favorite meals.  Simple, yummy and oh how good my house smells all day long.

Wednesday: Grilled Pork Chops, Smoky and Cheesy Buttermilk Baked Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli

Meijer (see the Meijer Deals here) has Boneless Center Cut Pork Loin Chops priced at $2.49/lb.  The roof on our deck means that no matter what the weather we will be grilling out.  The mashed potato recipe has been in my “To Try” file for awhile now.  They sound so good that I could probably make a meal out of them alone.

Thursday: Garlic Shrimp and Spinach Pasta

I can't get enough spinach lately.  I've been adding it to scrambled eggs for breakfast and many other meals.  I just found this recipe in my “To Try” list.  I'm looking forward to trying it!

Friday: Homemade Pizza

I'm going to try using this dough from this calzone recipe as pizza dough this week.  I love that it has some whole wheat flour.  Do you have a favorite whole wheat pizza dough recipe?

Saturday: Dinner Out

We have a busy day Saturday.  Dinner will be out somewhere between plans.

Sunday: Happy Mother's Day

I'm taking Mother's Day off from planning and cooking dinner.  What we will be eating is all up to my hubby and boys.  Hope the mom's in our life get to take the day off too!!

If you menu plan,do you do it on a weekly or monthly basis?
