Menu Plan Monday

Things have been SUPERBUSY this weekend and the week ahead looks like it will be just as hectic. I just found this cool site on getting organized, OrgJunkie.Com. Anyhoo, there is a great acitvity you can participate in called Menu Plan Monday, which I'm going to try to do weekly. I DO usually plan menus, this week I've been so busy I haven't had a moment to think. But here's my stab at it for the week. I do dinners only... lunch and breakfast usually take care of themselves, LOL!

Tomorrow will be grocery day, probably-- So tonight I'll wash the fridge.

Monday: Brunswick Stew and Corn Muffins, Fresh Ginger Gingerbread with Vanilla Ice Cream

Tuesday: Tuna Melts, Tomato Soup, Arroz con Leche from Nathan's Cocina

Wednesday: Nathan's Cuban Meatballs and Spaghetti, green salad, Warm Homemade Applesauce with Vanilla Ice Cream

Thursday: Open-Face Danish Chicken Burgers, Cajun-Spiced Sweet Potato Oven-Bakes, steamed broccoflower with lemonaise

Friday: DATE NGHT! Woo-hoo!

Saturday: Cuban Pork Chops, moros y cristianos (black beans & rice), Habichuelas en escabeche (green beans in vinaigrette), Tres leches cake

Sunday: Apple-Pancake Bakeoff Pt. 3, OJ, Soysage (Brunch); Edamame and Corn Chowder, Brown Bread Muffins


  1. i choose to dine with you on monday, wednesday, thursday, and saturday. 'kay? :)

  2. Grace, C'mon over!! You're always welcome at my house!! I will post recipes and/or links as soon as I can. Thanks so much for visiting!!

  3. Mmmmmm... everything looks good, I'm glad you've enjoyed some good Cuban food :)

    So how was the "Arroz Con Leche"?


    Your family is lucky to have a cook and foodie in the house like you :)

  4. Hey, Nathan! Well, we can't live without our Cuban food fix at least once a week! LOL, everyone has been disappointed in Carmen's lately, the guys have been saying it's better when I cook it at home-- thanks to you, Nathan, I've learned so much from your fabulous blog!
    DC says that the Arroz con Leche is his NEW FAVORITE DESSERT! I just made it tonight, it was AWESOME!!! Your grandma is a genius! I'm going to post about it soon. :)

  5. I am so envious of your organization. Love your meal planning, must make your week run smoothly. It all sounds perfect!

  6. It's a constant struggle for me, Donna! I don't know why, but it usually takes me FOREVER to figure out the menus. It DOES make things go more smoothly than when I don't plan, and it's a good feeling knowing I've got what I need in the house. We only have 1 car, so running out for last minute ingredients is not usually an option, although DC (my Darlin' Companion) is always willing to pick up stuff on his way home. THANK YOU for stopping by!
