On the menu: Outta here

Hopefully, I don't get kicked out of the Chive Talkin' Menu Plan Blog Roll for this one. It's barely even half a menu plan 'cuz we're getting ready to go out of town. But here's what I got.

Actually, first I have something exciting to tell you. (I've kinda been using that word - "exciting" - too much lately. Sorry. Easily amused, I guess.)

Anyway. My mom found the coolest little menu planner pad with a magnet on the back AND a matching grocery list pad! How cute are these?!?

So, my menu-plannin' pals, we have upgraded to writing on the front of the (very cute) page - instead of on the back.

This week:

  • Monday - this tuna casserole
  • Tuesday - Sloppy Joes on whole wheat buns with corn
  • Wednesday - dinner at Christine and E's
  • Thursday - stir fry with pork and leftover veggies over rice
  • Friday - dinner out. (Waaaay out!)
Would you believe that I never got around to making the tuna casserole that I had on my menu plan for a couple weeks? I either didn't have the (baking) time or the ingredients. Now, however, I have everything in my fridge. I'm typing this post on Sunday and planning to put it together later on, so I can just throw it in the oven Monday evening.

This week's plan is mostly about stuff with little-to-no prep time and using up what's in the fridge. For more inspiring menu plans than this one, visit the Chive Talkin' Menu Plan Blog Roll.


  1. We have similar menus again. I am having stirfry over rice & sloppy joe's (if it rains).

    Where are ya going?

    Have fun & be safe!

  2. You are so funny! You will NEVER be kicked out of the menu plan blog roll at Unless, of course, you start serving Mickie D's 24/7 and I don't see that happening. LOL. Love the cute printed menu planner pad... Although, honestly, I will miss your handwritten notes on tiny pieces of paper. I told Jen I love stir fry... I just need to remember it as an option. So, thanks for inspiring me too. Cheers!


What do you have to say about that?
