  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of July 21, 2014

    My father-in-law’s birthday is at the end of this week, and since the man has everything, the best gift we can give is some good home-cooked food. That means I’ll be cooking for sure this week, and cooking double or triple of everything so I can freeze the extras and present them to him this weekend. Then he can eat his gift at his convenience!

    Here’s what I’ve got planned:

    Monday – Pasta Bolognese, Steamed Broccoli, Garlic Bread

    Tuesday – Turkey Meatloaf Burgers, Salad

    Wednesday – Three Bean Chili, served with tortilla chips, lettuce, sour cream, sliced olives and veggies

    Thursday – BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Sweet Potato Fries, Broccoli Slaw

    Friday – Dinner out {I think; if not, we’ll have Alton Brown’s Sardine-Avocado Sandwiches}

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out
