Menu Plan Monday...Ahhhh, Routine!

I've missed my weekly menu planning! Meal planning keeps me on track -- not only financially, but also mentally. It gives me a plan of action for the week. Not everyone likes to plan as detailed a menu as I do, and I don't always plan every meal, but this week, planning down to the last detail is really going to help me get back into the routine of being home after a long vacation.

Here's what we're eating this week:


Breakfast: wheat cereal with strawberries and coconut milk

Lunch: Salad with pecans and cranberries & cheddar twists

Dinner: Chili (packed with veggies!) and polenta

Lunch: Leftovers

For more menu plans, visit Next week, I'll get back to my weekly highlights, garden updates, and everything else that I usually do. For now, a simple menu plan is good. :) I'll share the recipes that are new here on my blog as the week progresses, so stop by each day for a new delight. Oh, and don't forget: if you're not already a google friend connect public follower, go ahead and follow. Friday, I'm drawing for a random winner of a Georgia prize pack, including honey, pecans, and more!

YUM! As always, your menu sounds great! I'm interested to see your chili recipe - hope that's one you're going to share.
I love salad - especially with pecans or walnuts in it. We had been doing salad for dinner once a week.
I will be sharing my corn chowder recipe, it should be later in the week! Red Robin is my favorite too, I'm glad he picked that instead of McDonald's. ;)
Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

Everything sounds so good! I use coconut oil in my cooking, but I've never tried coconut milk. Is it sweet? I'm not sure I've even seen it in the stores... I'm sure it's more healthy for us then regular milk though.

Ohhhhh Keeping my fingers crossed I win that Georgia prize pack!

I've been thinking about trying coconut milk too, but after the soy milk and rice milk went down in flames with the family, I'm a little gun shy. Do the kids like it much?

Hey Michelle!

My girls do like it. BUT...they like soy milk, rice milk, and almond milk, too. We don't use any of them (except for chocolate soy and almond milk) as a beverage. We use them in recipes and on hot and cold cereals.

Monday's salad is very similar to one of my favorite salads. Instead of cheddar, I add goat cheese crumbles. yummy.

*NEW!* Stay current on what's cooking!
