Menu-Plan-Monday



As each week goes by it seems that it's getting a little easier and more routine to plan out the meals. This week I'd planned to left-overs on Monday (today) but we ended up having 5 (yes, five) extra people over to eat and so there is very little left. We were actually pretty lucky to have enough to cover all the extras. So without anything thawed/planned, it's a simple night tonight.

All meals are supplemented with the garden's bounty. I try to keep a platter of raw peppers, squash, cucumbers and fresh basil in the fridge.

Monday - Pasta Salad with left over chicken.

Tuesday - Tuna Patties, Homemade Tartar Sauce, Mac and Cheese

Wednesday - Fish Pattie Sandwiches

Thursday - Burritos, beef and bean

Friday - Linguine with Marinara, Meatballs and Pesto

Saturday - My sisters BD. We'll eat out and probably have too much birthday cake.

Sunday - Cookout Day! Whatever looks good at the butcher (still haven't had the steaks I wanted a week ago)

This might sound crazy but I love tuna patties. My mom would make them when I was a kid(I probably hated them then lol)and she just can make a good tuna patty. Your menu looks good. Have a good day!

Thanks Kim! We all love them here too. Even the girls. I plan to get the "recipe" up here at some point.

Lori, it may be a southern thing? If you like fish sticks, you'll probably like it.

Thanks Bridget!
