Menu Plans for the Week of May 24, 2010
I fail miserably at menu planning usually, but I know it would help me both mentally and financially to have a plan in mind. I think the locally grown strawberries are about to finish up for the year, but doesn't that look good?!
This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend and time to start thinking about some hot weather kinds of foods. The easier the better.
So here are my ideas for the week:
Meatloaf, baked potatoes, corn (Mix a can of no salt creamed white corn with a can of partially drained whole kernel white or yellow corn)
Hotdogs with the fixings, macaroni and cheese, left over corn
Oven toasted grilled cheese sandwiches, baked beans
Turkey Kielbasa with onions and peppers served over rice
Oven BBQed pork chops, with any leftover sides from the week (rice, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, or corn) (If none are left, then its back to the drawing board)
Not sure yet, maybe Pizza or take out of Smithfield's BBQ sandwiches, since its a holiday weekend. :o)
Homemade Chicken Salad, Pasta Salad, garden peas
I really need to sit down with some of my cookbooks, the Food Lion weekly sales paper and come up with some different meals. But, for now maybe this will work.
