Menu Plan Monday: Don't worry, I didn't forget!

I simply took awhile to make my plan this week. And it being a holiday weekend, yesterday did not feel like Sunday.

Last week's plan went exactly as planned. Rather unusual, but it has to happen sometimes!

Be sure to check out the other menu plans at Menu Plan Monday, hosted by Laura!

So here we go:

Sunday: Pomegranate glazed chicken with chive mashed potatoes, corn spoon bread, steamed broccoli. Fancy, I know, and it came together even more so (post about it tomorrow!) It was our Easter dinner with family.

Monday: Happy Shrimp with rice. Which reminds me that I need to go take the shrimp out.

Tuesday: Penne pasta with tomatoes, garlic and oil. Old standby.

Wednesday: Pork with apples and raisins.

Thursday: Crispy chicken drumsticks with mashed potato puffs.

Friday: Hamburgers with caesar salad.

Costco had cases of diced tomatoes on sale last week and I took advantage of it, stocking up, since we do go through alot and they don't go bad. But as a result, I messed up my own budget. This week's meals were partially planned around the concept of "what can I made that will not require me to make a single trip to the grocery store." It is nice having a reasonably well stocked pantry and freezer, so it should be good!

And on a totally unrelated note, I have another swimming "Woot!" to share with you all!
With only a few more swims left before we have a pool closure for 2 months, I have been trying to make sure I don't miss a swim, and that when I am there, I swim for the full time. Saturday saw me up waaaaaay too early, but resulted in a good swim, a new distance record for me: 2400 meters!

I have a feeling that if I keep putting in that kind of distance over the summer, when I come back in September I won't be swimming in the slowest lane anymore. Eeeek!

I loved being a member of Costco when we lived in San Diego.
Now we're members of Sam's Club. I love the demos. It's a fun place.
You have some terrific meals planned for this week.
Happy MPM!

I haven't a clue as to how far 2400 meters is, but it must be a lot for you to be so excited! Congratulations!
