Menu Plan Monday

I’m back again with my plan for this week’s menus. It’s great to have this accountability -- it forces me to get my menu planning done early in the week. In the past, I would aim to get it done before Thursday -- the day that I shop for groceries -- but it seldom happened. Thinking it about it on Monday is very helpful. As usual, I have at least one holdover menu from last week because we ate leftovers, etc. instead of using menus I had planned. Here we go:

MONDAY -- Stuffed Peppers, Southwestern Rice Bake, Sliced Tomatoes

TUESDAY -- Broccoli Hash Brown Quiche, Baked Squash, Ruby Pears

WEDNESDAY -- Salmon Dill Croissants, Tricolor Pasta Salad

THURSDAY -- Fish Fillets with Spinach, Mashed Potatoes, Fruited Coleslaw

FRIDAY --Vegetable Shrimp Toss, Herbed Dinner Rolls

SATURDAY (our church picnic at a lake) --Italian Subs, Tangy Potato Salad

SUNDAY -- Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup, Herbed Dinner Rolls

Looking forward to seeing others' menus for the week!


  1. Hello! Okay that all looks delicious. Isn't it great how flexible menu planning is. I think people don't start because they think it would be so rigid but it isn't at all. Have a great week. Laura

  2. You must be a wonderful cook... your menus look absolutely scrumptious!!! Enjoy your week and all that delicious and healthy looking food! :)

    OK...let me see...what wonderful dish am I going to "steal" from you for next week?? LOL!! Your menus sound the Salmon Dill Croissants..mmmmmm...

    Thanks for are inspiring!!

  4. Sounds absolutely superb!!! I love stuffed peppers.

  5. Thanks, ladies, for the nice comments!

    Yes, Laura, it is great how flexible menu planning can be. I think it's the same as with many other things in life -- we need to be willing to set aside our perfectionism to make it work for us.

    Leann -- I don't know if I am a wonderful cook, but I do enjoy cooking and I like variety. I will make old favorites from time to time -- especially for holidays, etc. -- but most of the time I like to make recipes I haven't tried before.

    Jenny -- the Salmon Dill Croissants are from a QUICK COOKING magazine. I'm sure you can find the recipe online in Taste of Home's Recipe Finder. I'm planning to use the salmon dill filling just on wheat rolls, however -- croissants are heavenly, but higher in fat than what I want right now.

    And Jenny -- I love stuffed peppers too, and so does my hubby. Green peppers were on a good sale this past week, so it seemed a good time to serve them.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    God bless,
