Menu Monday #44


Happy Monday! This weekend absolutely flew by! I don’t know where it went….

Hope you took some time this weekend to do a little planning for the week ahead. I grabbed my planner and my new favorite Moleskine notebook (I use it for to do lists) and make sure I was on top of things this week. It’s nice to feel a little ahead of the game!

This week on the menu, I’m keeping things fairly simple. It’s my week to go to Costco, where I like to stock up on fruit, veg, milk and eggs, and then some frozen items. When I do a Costco run, I also just hit my local Food Lion, so I need to plan a menu that doesn’t require fancy/specialty items or unique vegetarian foods. It’s simple, and using up what I have on hand already or picked up at Costco.

You may notice that the menu is pretty heavy on the Mexican food…. well it’s my husband’s birthday week! And it’s his favorite genre. So we’re living it up! You may recall that last year for his 30th, we did a Mexican food themed party for his birthday.

If you haven’t seen a Menu Monday post before, I share what we’ll be eating this week. (You can see how I generally menu plan here) I also try to include links to recipes where I can. Although some weeks are just DIY (open a can of this, saute that).

      They were really easy AND yummy last night! Not to mention we have plenty of leftover veggies now. Yum!

      OH! HA! Major fail on my part. I still wasn’t feeling all that great, so I made Rice & Beans. So I used 2 of the 4 required ingredients (I didn’t use sausage, which in hindsight, I should have! And I didn’t use flan). But the other dishes I tried were really good actually!
