Menu Plan Monday: Still tweeking it

Is it really Monday already? Wow, that weekend was fast. We didn't really do anything or go anywhere, but wow, is it really Monday already?

I'm making a plan for this week, but I'm staying very flexible with it. Just in case. A menu plan can be a great stress reliever, knowing in advance what you need to take out and defrost, pick up at the store, and plan ahead for. But it can also cause alot of stress if you are locked into it, refusing to make anything else because that is what is written on your plan.

Have I ever mentioned I write my plan in pencil?

I've sort of written this one, just broke my pencil doing it actually, but like I said, I'm being flexible. Because you never know when you will need to change things up or scrap them entirely.

(And don't forget to go check out Menu Plan Monday, hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie, for more menu ideas. I got a lovely muffin recipe from another blogger who menu plans just last week. Think I'll go have one of those muffins now, while I still have any left.)

Sunday: Butter chicken with rice, Naan bread, asparagus and carrots. An old favorite.

Monday: No idea yet. Seriously. If I can't figure something out this morning, without having to run to a store, we are having penee pasta with tomatoes, garlic and chili's.

Tuesday: By hubby request, chili.

Wednesday: Sandwich bar with fruit salad. Because we will all be eating at different times.

Thursday: Stuffed baked potatoes with sausages.

Friday: Grilled steak and peach salad.

Don't forget, you still have time to join me in this month's Monthly Mingle, the Mexican Fiesta! You can read all about how to join here, then head off to cook something fabulous for this event. Everyone is welcome, blogger or not, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has for the party.

Btw, need to do a "toot my own horn" announcement and invite you all to head over to Tyler Florence's blog today to see my very own post, chosen as last week's pick for Tyler Florence Fridays. I was so excited, so excited! (And I admit, seeing it makes me want to make more shrimp too.) ** NOTE ** As of 10:52 am EST, it isn't up yet, but I'm sure it will be today.
