Menu Plan Monday, May 18!



Last week was CrAzY! For some reason when I was planning the menus I forgot that the Princess had swimming lessons. Not a huge deal, except they are right during when I would usually prep dinner. So, I wasn’t home to cook dinner one day last week, but I still had to figure out and cook ahead/leave instructions to cook and some of the things on my menu were not make ahead/leave instructions friendly. I did get to the Quiche and hope to post the recipe later this week! Also, this week is crunch time when it comes to grocery budget. That means I searched my cabinets and fridge and figured out what I could make without buying a lot of new stuff!

The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is chives! Chives are one of the herbs that I managed not to kill. That is until dearest hubby decided to plant something new in my dead herb garden and dumped it out. Yikes! I haven’t replaced it yet, but I love it in eggs. I’m excited to try some new things with it!

One of the exciting things I got to do this weekend was clean my fridge! Notice the empty space in the bottom drawer? I’m actually getting an organic produce delivery TO MY DOOR! I’m so excited since I had to miss the Farmer’s Market this week. Plus anytime I don’t have to go to the grocery store gets something like three giant pluses in my book. Also in case clean fridges don’t excite you I included a Princess picture. We went to a Super Magical Princess and Superhero party last night and had a grand time!

veggie omelet, French toast, coffee
chicken, sweet potato tater tots, green beans from the garden (steamed!)
popcorn, pickles

Rest of the week:
Eggs (Probably Egg McMuffins)
Tropical Smoothie Didn’t get to this yet AGAIN, but I froze the fruit this weekend so it will happen this week!
Flourless Double chocolate Peanut butter Blender muffins (sub some almond butter probably!) Hoping to get to this!

Spaghetti and meatballs (zoodles for me, gf pasta for the Princess, regular pasta for hubby) Had this tonight!
Southwestern Veggie Wraps I’m hoping to get to this
Copycat Chipotle Beans and Rice
Celebration Dinner for the end of Swimming lessons probably at Chick-fil-A
Pancakes, maybe sausage
Pizza, salad
Cucumber salad as a side dish any number of times minus the radishes just because we have TONS of cucumbers in our garden right now.

Healthy Dessert: Chunky Monkey Ice Cream! I’m going to make this again because it reminds me of actual ice cream and it is summer hot here in Florida already and I want ice cream like every day.

    • Mine was so STICKY–the scary part was I didn’t know what it was from! YUCK!
      Oh my! I am sorry–I would totally share some of our 90 DEGREES F weather with you if I could. We signed the Princess up for swimming lessons earlier this year in hopes that it wouldn’t be as hot as say end of June/beginning of July. No such luck.
