menu plan monday (just a little early)

i'm on the ball this week!

actually, michael and lukie are taking naps and i promised i'd do something productive instead of "wasting" two hours fiddling around online. so, the product of my labor: this week's menu.

monday: bbq chicken, green bean casserole, rolls.
michael bought the bbq chicken when i was out-of-town last week and i need to use it or it will just sit in the freezer for several months. i think i'll just bake it and add some more sauce. green bean casserole is his favorite. i'm making this on monday so he can't complain when we have fish later in the week. he does not like fish.

tuesday: chicken & spinach pasta bake, salad

lemon-pepper talapia, rice and steamed brocolli. i'll probably adapt that recipe a bit, but it's a good place to start.

spaghetti & meatballs, salad

ted & desiree are joining us for dinner. not sure yet what we'll have but it will be "special" (grilled kabobs perhaps) and desiree will probably bring something. we'll also have a yummy dessert, maybe this.

we're going to a party for our good friends, ryan & crystal, so i won't make dinner.

take note -- this is my birthday! we're going out with ryan and crystal the next night, but michael will be planning dinner for sunday. at least, i hope he is because i'm not!

don't forget that you can check out more menus each monday at Org Junkie.
