This Week In Our Kitchen – Week of July 3rd

I must confess that I had a super duper hard time coming up with our menu for next week. I was in desperate need of some inspiration, so I hit the internet and other food bloggers to get ideas. I found a great recipe index over at Organizing Junkie, who hosts Menu Plan Monday, and saw some wonderful ideas.

Last week was great! I think everything on the menu was cooked and I had to make an addition on Friday, as we had no leftovers. Instead we had homemade sloppy joes and oven fries and they were easy to make and delicious, and best of all I had all of the ingredients on hand so no last minute grocery store visit. I am going to start on the following weeks menu today, so I have no more delays.

I would love to hear what you guys are eating this week, so please leave your menu in my comments. I need some new ideas.

Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.

Sunday: Chad’s Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, and seasoned mustard greens.

Monday: Lunch: Stuffed burgers with oven fries. Dinner: Pepsi Chicken, pasta salad and baked beans

Tuesday:  Marinated grilled chicken over angel hair pasta and topped with Parma Rosa sauce (leftover from last week), Ceaser salad and cheesy crescent rolls.

Wednesday: Beef Enchiladas and Spanish rice.

Thursday: Spicy Orange Chicken and fried rice.

Friday: Tater Tot Casserole

Saturday: Reuben sandwiches with homemade potato chips.

As recipes are posted on Kitchen and Kids, I will link them up to my menu plans, so if something interests you check back and see if I’ve posted a recipe.

Feel free to leave your ideas, too. Happy Cooking!

    • Thank you for stopping by. This recipe isn’t actually spicy, in fact I will be adding red pepper flakes for my boys to make it spicy. The baby and I will leave the spice off of our portions. I will head over and check out your menu plan, maybe I can get some great ideas for next week.

    Oh, I haven’t made out a menu in so long, unless I am going to be entertaining, like next week at Lake Powell. Maybe I will try to write up our menu from there, then it will look like I actually plan (I do when I am on the Lake!) Everything sounds too yummy!

    • A long time ago I did a menu but got out of the habit. The only menu items I have known for sure in the last few years are the ones that I am making for clients, but I figured I needed to change that.

      Quite honestly I have enjoyed having a menu because we know what we are eating, and I have the groceries necessary so no eating out unnecessarily. I have also enjoyed looking at all of the other great menus out there as well.

I'm excited you stopped by and I really want your thoughts.
