Menu Plan Monday – May 6


I’m kicking the week off with a recipe that will take advantage of some of the great Cinco de Mayo prices on Mexican foods.

Monday – Smothered Chile Colorado burritos – definitely the best thing to come out of my Crock Pot.  I use WAY less bullion.

Tuesday – Weight of the Nation for Kids airs after school so in honor of healthy eating we are having Jamie Oliver’s Chicken Korma from his Food Revolution Cookbook.  We’ve made the recipe so many times we now skip the chicken and use chickpeas, spinach, and cauliflower.  Serve with naan.

Wednesday – Daughter has standardized testing tomorrow so fueling up with her favorite Twice-baked Potatoes and Shrimp.  My chives are up in the garden!

Thursday – The always popular Eggs/Breakfast for dinner.

Friday – Planning a fancy lunch out for husband’s birthday.  For dinner it will be choose your own cereal or PBJ sandwich.

If you are looking for more menu inspiration, head over to Menu Plan Monday on!

    Hi Rona – If you try it let me know what you think! I used her recipe for refried beans once too, and they were good but not crazy good like the beef.

  2. Economies of Kale

    I agree, I like the look of that burrito recipe 🙂 And it’s good you’re fueling your daughter up with some omega-3s in the shrimp – good for the brain before that testing 🙂
