Meal Plan Monday with Links to Recipes
Since we're trying to be good and not spend money, I thought it would be a good idea to start meal planning again. Here is my menu for this week for dinner. I also thought it would be fun to find recipes for you guys if you'd like to try something yourself. I love allrecipes.com for everything. It is my go-to source for recipes, even though I own over 30 cookbooks.
Monday: Taco Night (ground turkey taco meat, sauteed onions and red pepper, refried beans, tomatoes, shredded cheese, taco shells, tortillas and avocado. Skipping the rice this time.)
Tuesday: Vegetable Moussaka -- I couldn't actually find a recipe for this on Allrecipes.com. So, I found one that was the closest to the one I use at Yummly
Wednesday: Mike works late, so the kids and I will probably make Homemade Pizza. Here is a recipe from allrecipes.com for a Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
Thursday: Mike works late, so I'll make something kid-friendly. Not sure what yet!
Friday: Stuffed Shells -- Jaycee saw them at the store today and asked what they were. I told her that we could make some soon.
This recipe was ranked 4 1/2 stars by the 405 people who reviewed it. I like that it used cottage cheese instead of Ricotta. I'll be trying this recipe!!
Saturday: Garlic Broiled Chicken, Au gratin Potatoes and Roasted Broccoli
(4 1/2 out of 5 stars w/ 2135 reviews--MUST be good!)
Sunday: Teriyaki Salmon, Asparagus
What are you having for dinner this week?
