Menu Plan Monday

Summer is started so I also need to plan out lunches for Scott and the boys. Scott and I are headed to Utah this week- I am going there as part of my duties with the Minnesota Optometric Association Board and I convinced Scott to come along- Kind of a cheap vacation since my flights and room are covered! My parents will have our kids and Scott's dad will be here with our big old dog.

So, with only 2 days to plan....

Sunday: Greek Chicken thighs, Quinoa, green beans (Lunch: Beef Pho- I had leftover broth from last week that I saved and a lonely strip steak that I can slice up)

Monday: Steak, Roasted potatoes, mushrooms and onions, salad (Lunch: Macaroni and cheese, fruit)

Tuesday: Vacation!

Menu Plan Monday

Sunday: Beef Pho (a family fav)

Monday: Chicken Scampi Penne, (good recipe- Scott really liked it!) garlic breadsticks, salad

Tuesday: Shrimp and Bacon Risotto with CSA vegie (hopefully asparagus again) Yum! I cooked the shrimp on the side with a whole bunch of garlic... and added a big scoop of marscapone to the risotto for extra creaminess.... drooling again just thinking about it...

Wednesday: Scott cooks. Breakfast for Dinner: CSA eggs, homemade sausage patties, toast, fruit

Thursday: Scott "cooks". Asian Lettuce Wraps, (It worked out well for Scott to just heat and serve, but I added extra liquid to give him for reheating on the stove and it didn't cook off like I thought it would so they were a little watery...) quinoa, wontons, fruit (I'll make it on Tuesday so Scott just has to heat and serve on Thursday)

Friday: Take out Night. In an effot to save money for our vacation next week, I pulled a half pound of ground beef from the freezer and found a small container of stuffed pepper filling in there too! Mixed the two together, added a bunch of spice and some tortillas and Taco night it is!

Saturday: BBQ chicken thighs, baked potatoes, green beans
