Menu Plan – Week of March 22nd

I chose to play in the garden on my first day back from vacation instead of restocking the refrigerator, so the first couple days of this menu are pantry/freezer meals. My husband did make an emergency store run for milk, eggs, vegetables, fruit, and dark chocolate M&M’s. I will reluctantly return to my schedule of grocery shopping on Monday and baking day on Tuesday this week.

Monday – Pink Bean and Ham Soup and garden salad

Tuesday – Garlic Chicken, Fiesta Corn, and Brown Rice

Wednesday – Use leftover chicken, corn, and rice in White Chili, Hummingbird Muffins, and Salad

Thursday – YOYO (You are On Your Own)

Friday – Casual Party Mexican Buffet with Cola Cake and Oatmeal Scotchies (recipe up on Thursday) for dessert

Saturday – Rew’s Birthday Party – Cheese Pizza using this gf recipe for the dough, fruit salad, and garden salad. The details on the birthday cake are still being worked out.

Sunday – Use leftovers from Mexican Buffet to make Taco Salad

  1. Man, i need a you are on your own night! I really should better plan my menus by shopping trip. Sometimes I do really well and don't have to go back but sometimes I have to go several times because my memory is awful.

  2. Ha! I love it that dark choc M & M's were part of the emergency grocery run!

  3. Oooo… taco salad sounds really good.

    and dark M&Ms are the bomb.
