Menu Plan Monday 5/3

Another menu dictated by our busy schedule this week-- so what else it new, right?  :)  Everything on my menu this week is tried and true, with the possible exception of the bread stick recipe, as noted below.

  • MONDAY: Flaky Chicken Wraps, broccoli salad
  • TUESDAY: goulash (my crockpot spaghetti sauce over shell pasta with pepperoni & veggies added in at the end) , garlic bread, broccoli   *I'm home today and will be bulk cooking ground beef for the freezer.   *I would love to find a good bread recipe to go with this that I can put in the bread maker-- please let me know if you know of a good one!
  • WEDNESDAY:  Cinco De Mayo: our favorite beef enchiladas, stewed tomatoes, sweet corn cake *We don't really need an excuse to eat Mexican food around here, but I'll take it!
  • THURSDAY: crockpot spicy chicken subs ( using chicken breast meat ) and mini ears of corn on the cob
  • FRIDAY: kielbasa, macaroni & cheese, peas
  • SATURDAY:  homemade pizza, new recipe: Pizza Hut Style Breadsticks, salad   *We often do homemade pizza on Saturdays.  The bread stick recipe has been on the menu before, but somehow we never seem to get around to that part.  Maybe this week....  )
And a sidenote:  We all loved the Braised Pork Medallions with Apples recipe that I tried last week.  I made a side of scalloped apples and steamed broccoli with it.  I'm sure that meal will be on the menu again soon!

Edited to add:  I am writing this post Sunday morning, and post-dating it to appear on Monday morning.... yet it keeps showing up live on my blog today (Sunday) with Monday's date as the header.   Did I miss Sunday?  Was I in a time warp or a worm hole??    :)


  1. Hello! I have the same problem when I schedule posts in advance. I think blogger doesn't work correctly in that area.

    Your menu looks great! I may try your crockpot spaghetti sauce. I usually do jar sauce, but would love a good homemade one. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. The pizza hut style breadsticks look good. I think I want to add them to my list of things to try too. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Those flaky chicken wraps sound great! I'm adding them to my "to try" list, thanks!

  4. It sounds like a delicious week at your house! :) And I'm glad you reminded me about Cinco de Mayo.
