past menu plans

Since I'm consolidating my blogs, I don't want to lose the menus that I posted over on the other one.  So here's a quick list.  Fortunately, I wasn't very good about keeping up with menu planning, so there aren't all that many of them!

June 13 - 18

  • Last night, I made Pad Thai.  I overcooked the noodles somehow (never had that happen before!), but other than that, it was great!
  • Tonight, we're having taco salad.
  • Tomorrow, it'll be crock pot roast beef.
  • Wednesday, roasted Cornish game hens.
  • Thursday, should be leftover night but we'll see if we have any!
  • Friday, lemon pepper chicken.

June 21 - 25

June 28 - July 2
  • Monday, we had leftover pizza and salad.
  • Tonight, we had grilled chicken and creamed peas and potatoes.  I don't usually grill on weeknights, but there wasn't any room in my fridge for a pan of chicken to be put in the oven, so we improvised.  Oh, and the peas and potatoes were from our garden.  AWESOME.
  • Tomorrow night, we're having spaghetti.
  • Thursday night, we're having baked turkey cutlets.  I just need to figure out what I'm going to do to them to give them some flavor!
  • Friday doesn't need to be make-ahead, since we're both taking the day off, so it'll probably be jambalaya or tuna helper.  We'll see. 

July 5 - 9
  • Monday, we had grilled steak, corn, and chard.  Since it was a holiday I was able to cook at dinner time!
  • Tonight, we'll have burgers (leftover, just heat and eat) and potato salad
  • Tomorrow, we'll have fried ham and baked potatoes (not make ahead, but the ham slices I bought will fry up in about five minutes once the skillet is hot)
  • Thursday, we may finally eat that turkey I've had on the menu for several weeks!
  • Friday, we'll have taco salad. 

September 19 - 23, 2010
  • Tonight, I made buttermilk chicken, with mashed potatoes and sauteed summer squash.  One of my favorite meals ever, and yes, it can be made ahead (but I didn't).  I'll post instructions soon!
  • Tomorrow, we'll be having cranberry pork chops.  How have I never posted this recipe on either blog?  Must remedy that...
  • Wednesday, teriyaki chicken.
  • Thursday, something meatless.  Hubby has promised we can start having meatless meals once a week to save money.  I'm not sure what yet, I need to do some recipe hunting!
  • Friday, we're babysitting our nieces and nephews, so I think we'll just be picking up a pizza or making something super quick at their house.    

September 27 - October 1
  •  Monday, we ended up with leftovers because - get this - I FORGOT to make dinner!  Craziness, I tell you!
  • Tuesday, we had turkey tenderloin baked in creamy mushroom sauce. 
  • Wednesday, we had lemon chicken.
  • Tonight, it's baked chicken taquitoes (this is my new favorite recipe!).
  • Friday, it's meatless night, and I have no idea what that will be yet, but I'd better get on it!

  • Sunday:  Creamed tuna on biscuits
  • Monday:  Chorizo black bean soup 
  • Tuesday:  Cordon bleu casserole (this recipe, served with noodles) 
  • Wednesday: Jambalaya with kielbasa (from a box, though I'm thinking about trying to bake it instead of stove-top, so it'll be more make-ahead.  I'll let you know how it goes)
  • Thursday:  leftovers
  • Friday:  Chicken paprikash over baked potatoes
  • Saturday:  We'll be out of town for a birthday party that day, so we'll grab dinner on the road.
