Monday meal plan 5-10

Posted May 10, 2010

This is a busy week at the Prosser house so no terribly time consuming dishes on the menu during the week. Of course I'll cook at least one meal in the crockpot and there's an easy tuna casserole in the plan. I'm looking forward to the flounder with veggies on Saturday. Cooking in the foil packets helps the fish and veggies retain so much flavor. I hope your week is full of frugal and delicious meals!

Monday
Veggie chicken sandwiches on whole wheat rolls
Side of spinach pierogies
Broccoli

Tuesday
Tuna and noodle casserole with green peppers and onions
Sugar snap peas

Wednesday
Creamy crockpot chicken with mushrooms
Cheesy rice and broccoli

Thursday
Bowtie pasta with tofu and Bertolli vidalia onion pasta sauce
Peas and garlic bread

Friday
Beef and cheese quesadillas
Mexican rice
Corn

Saturday
Baked flounder with veggies in foil packets
Mahatma rice
Rolls

Sunday
Depends on the sales starting Wednesday…. Probably something on the grill

    I changed things up just a little last night. I found some mini whole wheat pitas at Trader Joe's while doing my weekly tofu shop. They were $1.69 for 16 pitas. I also bought some tzatziki (cucumber yogurt dip) at Harris Teeter for $2.49 and we made mini pitas sandwiches with veggie burgers, cucmbers, tomatoes, pitas and tzatziki. They were so yummy and a great size for the kids. They loved putting together their little sandwiches with the ingredients they wanted.
