Menu Plan Monday- May 26

This week is an easy week of meals. I'm trying to avoid any cooking in the oven. The only heat will be stove top!

There are 3 items on the menu using fresh basil because I am growing a basil plant and it is getting huge! I've used it already in spaghetti when I first got it. It has been really easy to grow.

Tonight: (Leftovers from yesterday) Hamburgers/Hot dogs, Baked Potatoes & Rocky Road Brownies!

The rest of the week:
  • Teriyaki Drumsticks, Green Beans, Honey Glazed Carrots (didn't have last week- again)
  • Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup
  • Chicken Spaghetti (w/ fresh basil), Salad
  • Meatball Subs, Basil Dill Coleslaw
  • Parmesan and Basil Chicken Salad on rolls, Cranberry Broccoli Salad (using a recipe and tweaking it a bit, I'll let you know how it turns out)

One weeknight is usually leftovers (probably the night after the chicken spaghetti, since it makes a lot).

- Our pantry is stocked with cereal and oatmeal that I've been 'collecting', fruit
Lunch- Leftovers, sandwiches, chicken nuggets (Luke), carrot sticks, fruit
Snacks- Popcorn, yogurt, raisins, teddy grahams (for Luke), hummus and pita chips (for me), fruit

I haven't been shopping yet since it's a holiday, so I'm not sure what fruit I will be buying (except for bananas which we always have). I usually buy what's on sale and what looks good so it just depends.

Happy Memorial Day!! I am so thankful to all who have served our country faithfully and given their lives for our freedom. How blessed are we to live in a free country! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
