Monday is here and it’s time to plan our meals for this week. I’m hoping to grill this week but if it’s too cold I prepare the London Broil under the broiler instead.

We’ve had a few warmer days which has motivated me to get out to barbecue.

This week I’m making a few side dishes to stretch over two or three meals. I love it when I can prepare extra of our side dishes and then eat them over the next few meals.

Our side dishes for this week will be garlic and chives potatoes and salad a few nights. I’ll make a double batch of the potatoes early in the week.

For the salads, I’ll wash a package of romaine hearts, spin them dry and then store them in a zipper bag and take out what I need to make the salad each night.

It makes getting dinner done so much easier.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

  1. My menu plan went out the window this week because we had so many unexpected things going on around dinner time, and we ended up eating take out a few times 🙁 I’m hoping to plan better this coming week!
