Menu Plan Monday

Happy fall and Happy Monday!  It definitely looks like fall around Birmingham.  I took this close-up shot of some maple leaves on a walk last week.

Let’s get to it. Menu Plan Monday.

I must confess that while obviously I planned my menu last week, I still ended up going to the grocery store a few too many times.  This week I will review my recipes closer before heading to the store and will plan to go only twice. I promise!

Monday: Shrimp and Sundried Tomato Risotto

We ended up not having this last week, because we went out to eat unexpectedly.  The good news is I did find a good price on Gulf Shrimp, at Costco’s no less. I’ll let you know what I think of the quality. I’m not sharing the recipe you see because I didn’t write down how I prepared the shrimp for the top.  I can tell you it was amazing and simple.

Tuesday: Leftovers

Wednesday: Oven Tacos

Thursday: Chicken Parmesan

Here’s my plan on this one.  I’ll use the chicken tender recipe we thought was top notch a few weeks ago and then top it with an organic tomato sauce and Italian cheeses after the tenders are nearly baked. I’ll serve with regular pasta or spaghetti squash.

Friday: Leftovers

Saturday: Chicken Picatta Pasta

Nice simple meal that is surprisingly tasty. Gluten free versions of spaghetti work fine here too.

Sunday:  Mediterranean Lentil and Sausage Soup

Oh, my how we love this hearty soup!! You will not regret making a pot on a cold night. I promise!

Update Around Here
I scratched a few small projects off the mighty long list I’ve got going.  That felt good. What about you, did you get to any projects this weekend?

Have a great week everybody!
