Menu Plan Monday

This week we're going to try to eat what we have on hand. We spent quite a bit of money on the trip and need to tighten the belts a tad for the next week or so. Fortunately, we have plenty of food so we'll be fine and should need to hit the grocery just for things like milk, bread, and fresh produce. In light of that, here's the menu for the coming week, all easy and thrifty and in no particular order other than the first meal which we had tonight:

Barbecued chicken thighs served with salad, baked beans, and spinach

Beef roast broiled with lots of carrots, potatoes, and onions

Meat loaf, salad, and green beans

Beef salad, made from leftover beef roast, served on bread or lettuce leaves with cantelope and cheese chunks

Southwest chicken salad made with spicy cilantro chicken and a variety of toppings Went out for Mexican food

Scrambled eggs and turkey Italian sweet sausage with whole wheat toast

You're On Your Own (YOYO) night when we eat leftovers or whatever else we can scare up

For some excellent menu planning ideas and recipes, go on over to Menu Plan Monday. Add your own menu if you like and come back here with a comment letting me know so I'll be sure to check it out. I love reading about what others have planned! Oh, and if you're planning a vacation this summer check out Laura's Family Travel Tips and Vehicle Organization entries. That organizing junkie just rocks and she has great suggestions for anyone traveling this summer!
