Menu Plan Monday - This Week and a Review

I thought that it would be nice to take a look at the this coming week's menu and a review on how we did on our Menu Plan from last week.

This week, we have several items that are being moved from last week. Additionally, I think we actually only need to plan 4 or 5 meals for the week since we usually end up with so many leftovers we can eat them throughout the week at several meals.

Sunday: Leftovers
Monday: Peach BBQ salmon or chicken (moved from last week)
Tuesday: Spaghetti with Meat Sauce (moved from last week)
Wednesday: Barbacoa Beef Burritos with Cilantro Basmati Rice (moved from last week)
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Out of town for a wedding.
Saturday: Out of town for a wedding.

As you may remember, below is the plan for last week. We ended up not making many of the recipes since I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer on two occasions and had to substitute some other things.

Sunday - Grilled Salmon with a variation on the Caprese Salad. Sides of various cheeses and breads we got Saturday at the local bakery and cheese shops.
Monday - Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork with corn on the cob and salad
Tuesday - Steaks with Sweet Mesquite Marinade (moved from last week) with roasted peppers and potatoes and salad
Wednesday - Peach BBQ Salmon with mashed potatoes and salad
Thursday - Homemade Barbacoa Beef Burritos with cilantro Basmati rice.
Friday - Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
Saturday - Chicken Quesedillas with Spanish Rice

Our actual weekly menu was
Sunday: Leftovers
Monday: Falafel
Tuesday: Homemade Pizza
Wednesday: Rootbeer Crockpot BBQ Pork (planned meal)
Thursday: Chicken Quesedilla with Spanish Rice (planned meal)
Friday: Dinner with friends. Grilled salmon with Multi-veggie caprese salad (planned meal)
Saturday: Marinated Grilled steak, mashed potatoes, sweet corn and salad (planned meal)
