Monday Meal Plan

This week’s grocery haul was from Giant.  Lately we’ve  been switching between Giant and Harris Teeter depending on the ads.

On the menu this week:

Mushroom Stroganoff

This was our Sunday dinner.  We used beef broth, and it definitely gave it a hearty flavor.  Thick steak cut mushrooms were on sale so we just had a package of those instead of a mix like the recipe.

Shrimp Stir Fry

Garden Alfredo with Chicken (New recipe!)

Hamburgers

Hopefully the weather is nice when we make them so we can use the grill that’s outside near the pool!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

What’s on your menu this week?

Weekly Meal Plan

Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit.  I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.

We’re trying 2 new recipes this week!  Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.

On the menu for us

Tuesday: Grilled Salmon and Yellow Squash with Red Pepper Sauce

Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job

Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn

The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended.  I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.
