Menu Plan Monday

It's Monday and that means time for the menu plan. Here's what we'll be eating this week:

Monday: Pot Roast with potatoes and (tons of) carrots (because the toddler is currently in-love with carrots)
Tuesday: Pizza (from Papa Johns- they're recommending ordering in advance) and a salad
Wednesday: Beef Stew (using leftover roast from Monday)
Thursday: Turkey Pot Pie Soup with biscuits
Friday: TBD*
Saturday: Meatloaf, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes
Sunday: Albondigas

As for Friday, we don't eat meat and I've never really been into seafood but I have recently discovered that Safeway marks down their seafood by 50% so I've been watching that and experimenting. Last week I did tilapia in a lemony browned butter sauce with pistachios- and it was pretty good (tilapia- bought a few weeks ago and frozen, butter was free not butter, lemon from mil's tree, and pistachios from the summer). This week I'm just going to wait and see what I find and then look for another recipe online. Wish me luck!

  1. Turkey Pot Pie Soup? Oh, that sounds so yummy! Do you have a recipe to share? I am making a whole chicken roasted one night this week and I was going to make chicken and rice soup the next day, but maybe I have the ingredients for chicken pot pie soup? It sounds heavenly!

    As for the seafood Friday, do you like Salmon? We are big fans at our house and my kids really love it too. There are lots of things you can do with it. Salmon Patties, Salmon Chowder, Baked Salmon, Quiche, etc...
