Menu Plan for the Week of August 22

We were quite good about sticking to our menu plan last week though we did switch some of the days around because someone (that would be me) forgot to put the stuff in the crockpot before leaving for work on Wednesday.  Oops.  

We also skipped the pizza on Friday - deciding instead to head to Chili's for strong air-conditioning (we don't have central air), skillet queso and margaritas and on Saturday night, instead of FITF, Mr. Gooch made a tasty salmon to go on top of a large dinner salad on Saturday.  Look for the that post coming shortly.

Our menu this week is about eating the items we already have in our fridge and freezer.  We got a new fridge last week and when we were cleaning it out (and moving things around), we realized that we didn't have a good handle on what we actually had spread between our kitchen fridge, the basement fridge and the garage freezer.  So other than some fresh veggies, everything on our menu was already in our freezer, fridge or pantry. 

This week's plan is a mix of old favorites and some new recipes, it will be good to get back into the swing of blogging about our new recipes.

Sunday:  Seasoned Steak Perfection with salad, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes
Monday:  Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs with brown rice and corn on the cob
Tuesday:  Seasoned Steak Perfection with salad and steamed veggies.
Wednesday:  Garlic-Lime Pork Chops with Chipotle basmati rice and salad. 
Thursday:  Dinner Salad topped with either leftover beef, chicken or pork. 
Friday:  Late dinner with friends
Saturday:  Celebrating Mr. Gooch's grandmother's birthday

Don't forget to visit to see what others are planning for their menus this week.
