Menu Plan Monday - Week 172


I completely missed last week.  Last weekend was so busy.  'Prenatal In A Day' was all day Saturday, and then Sunday was church, and then my mom threw me a Baby Shower.  I was way too exhausted after the weekend to think about our meals for the week, and then the weather was TERRIBLE for the first part of the week and neither me or the hubby wanted to venture out to the store.

So, for the first time in a VERY long time, we did not have a plan for our week (or food in the house for that matter).  We went through the week eating the food we had in the house and slowly running out of supplies.  I was actually pretty impressed that we didn't eat out more than once.

All that being said, I missed the benefits of menu planning last week.

I will do better from now on!  And it will be easier now that I AM FINISHED WORK!!!! Holy smokes - this whole baby thing is getting very real!

This week looks different as the hubby, puppy and I are headed up to Harrison Hot Springs for two nights for our last hurrah.  I am super excited to not have to get up and go to work tomorrow morning!

Here's what our week looks like:

Monday: Harrison
Tuesday: Harrison
Wednesday: Dinner at The Tomahawk to welcome home my little brother from his world (Australia, Indonesia & New Zealand) travels
Thursday: Baked Chicken Dijon, Mashed Potatoes & Veggies (didn't get to this one the last time it was on the menu)

I also wanted to give a review, per se, on the Mini Honey Mustard Meatloaves that I made week before last.  It was sooooooo good.  I LOVED IT.  The meatloaves were so easy to make and were delicious.  The only thing I would change the next time I made them is to not make them as thick.  I would make them a little flatter (more surface area to cover with the sauce and cheese).  I made my own roasted potatoes, and had a caesar salad with it. All in all, I would recommend this recipe.  If you try it, let me know what you think!

As always, I'll be linking up with Orgjunkie.  Head on over for some awesome tips on Menu Planning and recipe idea's!

  1. Don't beat yourself up for missing MPM. I've missed a few myself.
    You have a great menu planned! Enjoy your week.
