Menu Plan Monday – September 16


This past weekend I went to Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania for a college friend’s wedding. It was also a reunion for our group of friends. It was so much fun. The area was stunning as was the setting for the wedding ceremony, in an open air chapel deep in the woods that was over 250 years old. Such a unique and intimate setting.

It is always hard to leave the family but coming home to my husband and children after a weekend away is all the more special with lots of hug and kisses. It seems that E changes so much in a short space of time. I was only gone 2 days, but she is so much more animated and talking up a storm it seems.

And now back to reality and of course, menu planning for the crazy upcoming week. Last week didn’t go off quite as planned, though I did make my favorite salmon recipe, the  Marinated Salmon Seared in a Pepper Crust with Cucumber Vinaigrette. The leftovers were perfect over a bed of salad greens the rest of the week.

Here is what is on the menu this week, plus lots of fresh fruit:

Monday: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Lasagna (still working on perfecting my recipe) with a Green Salad – bumped from last week

Tuesday: Applegate Farms Hot Dogs on a Whole Grain Bun with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Zucchini

Wednesday: Evening Out

Thursday: Freezer Leftovers

Friday: Garden Turkey Meatballs and Spaghetti with a Green Salad

Saturday: Evening Out

Sunday: Family Dinner (I’m hosting and haven’t decided on the menu just yet)

Have a wonderful week. For more menu planning ideas, go to Menu Plan Monday on I’m an Organizing Junkie!
