Menu Plan Monday


We're still in major frugal, "clean out the pantry" mode here at Aquinas Academy. Thankfully, after buying a side of beef, and carefully shoping the sales, our meals are definitely not wanting for anything! Here's the plan:

Monday: Grilled Chicken (bone-in breasts, on sale last week - can't have beef *every* night, after all!), mashed potatoes and a simple gravy, green beans

Tuesday: Grilled Steaks, grilled bread (a great recipe, only I substituted 2 teaspoons of minced garlic for the fennel - YUM!), salad

Wednesday
: Chicken Enchiladas (we decided last week we like red sauce better with our beef enchiladas, so this week, since I had a TON of white sauce left over from the beef enchiladas last week, we're going to try enchiladas using that white sauce, flour tortillas, and leftover chicken from Monday), corn, chips and salsa

Thursday: French Dip Sandwhiches, French Rolls, French fries, vegies & dip (we didn't get to this meal from last week)

Friday: Shrimp stir-fry (we have shrimp in our freezer all ready, so this is actually a frugal meal!), rice, and if I'm feeling ambitious, perhaps egg rolls, too

Saturday: Slow Cooker Round steak, homemade bread, salad

Sunday: BBQ Chicken (still on sale this week!), coleslaw, garlic bread (with the homemade bread from yesterday), corn on the cob, watermelon
