Menu Plan: Week of 6/21/10

I've been in a bit of cooking rut lately, which is amazing considering the amount of time I spend online surfing blogs for new recipe ideas. But really, shouldn't this be considered "research" necessary for my job as CEO of Our House, Inc.? Actually, the amount of extra hours I spend on this research should result in quite a sizeable year-end bonus.

But I digress.

My rut was temporarily halted last week by trying two new recipes: Spinach Pasta Bake and Black Bean and Beef Salsa Skillet. Both turned out super yummy and my currently picky preschooler asked for seconds on both dishes. This equals a hit!

This week, hubby is traveling for work so it's just me and the kids most of the week. I won't plan anything "special" on those nights; just kid-friendly, easy meals. Here's my plan for the week:

Cold cereal and toast
Blueberry banana smoothies
Pancakes (leftover from Sunday morning, from the freezer)

Poor Man's Pizza
Grilled cheese and tomato soup
Hummus, crackers and carrots

Sunday: Happy Father's Day! Grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon, chips, and Key Lime Pie Poke Cake.

Monday - Wednesday: easy stuff for me and the kids- probably some pasta and grilled sandwiches

Thursday: Hot Beef Cheddar Subs, oven fries, frozen green beans, fresh fruit

Friday: Homemade pizza, lettuce salad

Saturday: ?? I'm going to suggest going out to eat; if not, it's leftovers!

  1. I love the title, "CEO of Our House, Inc." Hope you don't mind if I borrow it? :)

  2. Borrow away, April! It's such a fitting title!

  3. Thanks, It's now under my header on my page. :)
