Menu Plan Monday-Down to the Wire

It has finally happened. Our new kitchen is ready to use. I finished the pantry redo, cleaned all the appliances, unpacked all our dry goods, took stock of our frozen goods and actually ran to the grocery store to get some perishable items.

With the kitchen in action, it is back to menu planning for us.

Monday: BBQ Chicken on our new grill
Tuesday: Steaks with Southwest Marinade, corn on the cob, roasted potatoes, salad.Wednesday: Salmon with Pesto on Puffed Pastry, Cheesy Parmesan Orzo, dilled carrots
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Large dinner salad with grilled chicken
Saturday: Spicy chicken sausage with mac and cheese
Sunday: Out to Dinner at Famous Dave's

Menu Plan Monday - Have No Idea What Comes Next

We are finally in our new home. Yeah!!! However, it has taken over a week to get things cleaned to the point where I feel comfortable putting food in the fridge and freezer, furniture on the carpet and our dishes in the cupboards. I am actually still working on getting the caked on grease off the grates for the stove top (thank goodness for Copper Boy scouring pads and Simple Green) so we haven't been doing much cooking yet. That will probably start next week (I hope).

So here is what we have planned.

Monday: Caesar salad with sushi, fruit salad and fresh bread (all from our local grocery store).
Tuesday: Caesar salad with chicken, fruit salad and the rest of the fresh bread
Wednesday: Baked Spaghetti Pie
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Lean Cuisine (I am on my own for dinner)
Saturday: Stovetop Taco Pasta
Sunday: Leftovers

Menu Plan Monday - Not Much of a Plan

This week's Menu Plan Monday is rather vague. The reason? We just moved into our new (to us) house and because we are cleaning it from top to bottom, we don't actually have any food in it yet. So we are not sure what we are going to be eating since my parents have been kind enough to let us eat with them.

But here is what I know.

Monday: Leftover Chinese
Tuesday: Chipotle Burritos
Wednesday: Large Dinner Salad with Chicken
Thursday: Salmon fillets
Friday: Your Guess is as Good as Mine
Saturday: Your Guess is as Good as Mine
Sunday: Hopefully steaks on the grill (if we get the grill purchased and assembled)
I am hoping that by the end of the week, we will have our stuff unpacked and be able to get back on track. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
