Menu Plan Monday

Working with a menu plan for the week sure makes my days go smoother. The questions seem to start early in the day and it is so satisfying to have a ready answer. I love knowing just what to pull out of the freezer and if I get a few minutes early in the day I can often start some prep for dinner.

That's why I love participating in

So, what's on the menu this week in our house? I'm glad you asked....

(By the way, I shop on Friday so my plans tend to run Friday to Friday)

Pork and noodles with homemade peanut sauce
Edamame Salad
Fresh Pineapple

Baked Fish
Rice with Roasted Vegetables, Kalamata Olives and Feta
(plan to use tomatoes, zuchini, mushrooms, onions and garlic)

Pasta with a homemade fresh tomato sauce
Roasted Cauliflower and Carrots
Fresh Pineapple

Homemade Orange Chicken
Brown Rice

Black Beans and Rice and all the fixin's

Mashed Potatoes

Be sure to check out other menu plans over at Laura's blog.

That really seems to keep me from falling into a cooking rut!

Your plan sounds delicious! (I knew mine was light on veggies this week, but now I feel really bad about that! LOL!)

How do you make orange chicken?
