Trader Joe's and Safeway were so busy yesterday and I had a lot to get. It seems like we run out of everything (milk, olive oil, peanut butter, etc) all at the same time. It was quite the task to make the list, do the shopping, unloading and putting away, but today I'm glad it's done and all the groceries are put away so we can get on with the week.
Our menu this week is pretty simple! There isn't a lot of chopping to be done or prep work for our meals this week, which is just what I needed. What I love most about Trader Joe's is that I can buy so many shortcut items there to make dinner making much easier. One of my favorites is the mirepoix mix!
| Monday | Lasagna and Green Salad - Making one for us and one for our neighbor. I can't remember the last time I made a lasagna.
| Tuesday | Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup - I'm trying a Mexican twist (my favorite!) on a soup I made last fall. If it turns out good I will be sure to share the recipe.
| Wednesday | Tortellini with Meatballs and Green Beans - I'll be at O's school Orientation, so I need to make something quick before I go. Keith loves tortellini!
| Thursday | Oven Baked Fajitas - Have you made these before? There are a lot of recipes out there, but I usually just toss some sliced bell peppers, onions, chicken tenders with a little vegetable oil and then mix in my homemade fajita seasoning before baking it in the oven. Sometimes we eat them in tortillas and other time we have it with beans and rice. All depends on what we have on hand!
| Friday | Dinner out or take-out! - By Friday I'm done cooking and we're in the mood to get out of the house or hang with friends.
So what's your plan for the week? If you'd like to link up your menu for the week or even just a great dinner recipe you'd like to share, link up below! Also, don't forget to grab the graphic below to add to your post or include a link back to the link up.
Also, don't forget, I've started a Menu Monday board on Pinterest to share all the great ideas from weeks past. I'll be pinning everyone's posts this week as well!
