Menu Plan Monday, More Doing

Hope you have had a great Labor Day!  We did a little laboring around here today. 
I worked on adding a last detail to the kitchen island/cart we built.  If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve gotten a sneak peek already.  I’m still not telling you what color I’ve painted it.
For the rest of you, here’s a gander. I couldn’t even wait to get the first coat of paint on it before giving it a test drive in the kitchen, complete with a few Fiestaware dishes. 
Of course, this is where I realized it was missing an apron on the side between the chippendale legs.  Oops.  Quickly remedied, thankfully with a quick cut of bead board and 
So as you can see, there’s still lots “More Doing” and less writing going on around here to borrow the Home Depot slogan.  I think I should switch to a shorter kind of day by day format more often, because if I just wait to share things when I’ve reached the “finished room” then I’m cheating you of the little details that make up a makeover or a project.
But let’s back to Menu Plan Monday….

When I last wrote, we were gearing up for a house full of guests.  Sadly, our out of town guests had to cancel, but we were super happy to have our son Miles home!! I did my best to spoil him with tasty food and cookies.

Here’s a look at this week’s chalkboard.

Monday: Leftovers.  I’m sure you guessed it. I cooked too much this weekend.

Tuesday: Grilled Chicken Ranch Pasta Salad

This is a favorite around our house, no photo yet. Quick and easy, especially if you grill the chicken the day before.

Wednesday: Grilled Fish Tacos


This the recipe I like best right now.  I like to use a grill pan for easy handling.

Thursday: Grilled Rosemary Chicken

I really can’t believe I don’t have a recipe saved in my Paprika App for this.  Pretty simple ingredients.

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Chicken Thighs with Shallots in Red Wine Vinegar

Sunday: Beefy Bean Quesadillas

I don’t really have a recipe for this one either. Just sounds like something I want to make. 😉

From Last Week

We ended up having neighbor friends over for dinner, instead of our out of town company. It was a big hit with everyone, especially our pasta loving boy, Miles.

Go check out the recipe for Shrimp and Sausage Creamy Cajun Pasta.  It’s really a simple recipe, you don’t have to save it for company.  Although, your company will thank you if you do.

So, this week I have two questions for you.

Are you a grits or pasta kind of person?

Do you want to see more of the day to day developments of projects? Or is that just too much?
