Menu Plan Monday

Giving this a try - doing this to add to I'm an Organizing Junkie. Since I have to go to the Commissary, today, and I only want to make ONE trip I am actually planning for the entire week. Makes it difficult when the choices there are so limited. That, and the fact that I don't eat meat or poultry, but DH has to have it - or it's not a meal. So, our "menu" for this week, is:

Monday - Broiled salmon, mushroom risotto, frozen peas

Tuesday - Steak, hash brown casserole, green beans with toasted almonds

Wednesday - Turkey sausage on the grill, left-over hash brown casserole [which has to be reheated in the oven or the corn flakes on top won't be crunchy], cucumber salad, Brussels sprouts

Thursday - Baked hamour, oven-roasted spicy sweet potato wedges, asparagus, left-over cucumber salad

Friday - Beef / mushroom stroganoff [I use cream of mushroom soup in this instead of cream of chicken, and I double the mushrooms and onions!] on pasta, broccoli

Saturday - Dinner in Bahrain

Sunday - Chili [I make two batches - one with meat, the other without], corn bread for DH, garlic bread for me

Lots and lots of excellent menu ideas over there every week at Meal Plan Monday. Pigs Do Fly has some delicious sounding ideas [Bacon Cheeseburger Wellingtons! DH will like them, I'm sure.]


  1. I am going to try the hash brown recipe. It sounds easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing.


  2. I actually had to look up "hamour" because I had never heard of that variety of fish. Your menu looks delicious.

    I'm a first time MPM poster, too. :)

  3. Wow, that would be tough to have to prepare both a vegetarian and a meat option every day! I thought I had it bad with my picky eater husband. At least I can only make one meal, yikes =)

  4. Looks like you have a yummy week planned.
    Have a great Halloween or Harvest Festival!

  5. Oh, thanks for the idea about the cornbread. I was making that quite regularly for awhile but kind of forgot about it. Yum! And welcome to MPM!

  6. Let me know if you get to try the bacon cheesburger wellingtons. We love them!

    Your week sounds yummy!
