Weekly meal plan and Monday dinners

Posted July 21, 2014

London Broil


Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like. If you need some inspiration for your own dinner tonight, this may give you some helpful ideas.

What's on your menu tonight?

Our meals this week include:

Monday: London broil cooked in the slow cooker with lots of McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning, egg noodles, sauteed squash and onions and rolls

Tuesday: Chicken, cheese and corn enchiladas, rice, sugar snap peas

Wednesday: BLT's with Butterball turkey bacon (on sale at HT and Walgreens) and avocado (thanks to twinredheads for the idea!) with sides of sweet potato fries and watermelon

Thursday: I am working late so they will probably have something easy my daughter can make like spaghetti, Sister Shubert rolls and Steamfresh broccoli florets

Friday: The girls and I are taking my Dad out to dinner

    Great meals tonight everyone! I agree RFB - I am also getting hungry reading these!

    We have an unexpected change of plans tonight. I cooked the London Broil last night so I could bring some to my dad for his dinner tonight while I was in Cary teaching this afternoon. After it was finished at 11 pm last night, my oldest daughter decided to taste test it...a lot. And then she decided it looked good for lunch and finished it off! lol In all honesty, the London Broil piece was a smaller than I realized so after giving a good chunk to dad, there probably wasn't enough left for 4 more people. Soooooo.... we are having some Ball park white turkey low fat hot dogs on buns with sides of sauteed zucchini and onions, mac and cheese and watermelon.

    Happy Anniversary to both of you barbiedoll1967 and twinredheads!

    I'm getting so hungry reading all of these!!! And tonight, my DH is out grilling up some tri tip that we got from TJ, and I'm going to have a ton of grilled veggies and goat cheese bruschetta! Also, I can't believe I got so much today at TJs for just $85 (almost 2 weeks of meals- not including the tri tip, that was his splurge!)

    And, as a heads up... I really LOVE their frozen chicken breasts. Tried my first bag a few weeks ago, and they are just $6.99 for about 5 large ones. I'm really surprised with the wonderful quality of them. It's perfect, as they're frozen separately, and since I'm mostly doing a veggie meal each night, I can pull out a few to defrost when I need them, and easily cook some for my DH!

    Ascherer, I just read your comment about the problem with the blueberries in your baked goods (sorry, was it muffins?). If you gently dust your blueberries with flour before you add them to the batter, it helps keep them from sinking somewhat, and if they are a bit damp, helps from making your batter watery.

    Dinner tonight is leftover beef stroganoff for DW. Not sure what I'm having yet. The stroganoff was good, but there is only enough left for one and she is way more of a meat eater than I am. I might just have a salad.

    Nanny113, your blueberry syrup sounds delicious!

    We are having breakfast for dinner to night at the request of my granddaughter. Blueberry pancakes with fresh blueberries picked right off my bush and homemade low-sugar blueberry pancake syrup that I made yesterday, again with blueberries picked right off my bush. I sure hope the syrup is good - it was my first attempt at making syrup and my first attempt at canning! With that we are going to have bacon that I pulled out of the freezer from previous sales at either HT of LF along with scrambled eggs with fresh peppers (given to me by a friend who came over to pick blueberries - my bush and my son's bushes were bursting with berries) with cheese from previous HT sales that I pulled out of the freezer.

    Thanks Nakabi!

    twinredheads-happy anniversary!
    Laxmom-For the tomatoes, I cut out the core of the tomtoes, fill a huge pot (one I use to make tamales) with water, get the water boiling and drop the tomtoes in the boiling water. Let them sit in the water long enough until the skins start to fall off. Take them out and submerge them in an ice bath (stops the cooking process), and peel the skins off. I then chop up some of them for stews, and puree some for chilli. Then just put them in ziploc bags, along with all the juices. They freeze great. For the okra & green tomatoes, I just chop them up and put them in ziploc bags and fill the bags with water.
