Menu Plan Monday - May 23, 2011

We're heading into a holiday weekend, and I'm very excited!  It will be great to have some extra time to spend with family without homework and office deadlines hanging over our heads - and even better because my husband has next week off.  We're actually going to be traveling to visit relatives for the weekend, so I'm hoping to play around with a few things to put in the freezer for later.

Breakfast cake and watermelon X2
Breakfast burritos and strawberries
Blueberry pancakes and cantaloupe X2
Cereal and bananas
Scrambled eggs, toast, and watermelon

Monday - Grab it and Growl
Tuesday - Whole wheat pasta tossed with steamed veggies, grilled chicken, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese
Wednesday - Due to some great coupons and sales, I've ended up with a surplus of Philly Creme.  I'm planning to make this Chicken Tortilla Soup to eat and this Tex-Mex Casserole to freeze.
Thursday - Hamburgers on homemade buns, the Ore-Ida sweet potato fries that came in the mail today FREE, fresh green beans, and watermelon
Friday - Heading out to visit family!  We'll eat the rest of our meals with them.

I do try to take a few things along when we travel, though.  I'm hoping to take these things along this time:
Vanilla muffins - we all absolutely love these!
Kitchen Sink Cookies
Chocolate waffle cookies - We might have to make these today; they look delicious! (Might play with the recipe just a bit to make it healthier ....)
