Monday meal plan 5/23

Posted May 23, 2011 11:42 a.m. EDT

On the menu this week we have salmon burgers, light shrimp alfredo, grilled chicken, veggie burgers, chicken quesadillas and dinner out with my hubby for our 16th wedding anniversary!

What's on your frugal menu this week?

Monday

Salmon burgers

Brown rice

Tomato and cucumber salad

Tuesday

Light Shrimp Alfredo (using BOGO frozen shrimp from Food Lion and free Kraft Philly cooking cream)

Broccoli

Rolls

Wednesday

Veggie burgers

Pasta salad with veggies

Fruit (probably orange slices)

Thursday

Grilled chicken (batch cooking a 3 lb bag of chicken and will be using leftovers in the chicken dish Friday night)

Leftover pasta salad with veggies

Corn

Friday

Chicken quesadillas  (using leftover grilled chicken from night before)

I had thought about making enchiladas but that involves using the oven, which I try not to do very much when it is 90 degrees or more outside. It just heats up the house too much. So - quesadillas are made using the stove, which doesn't heat things up quite as much.

Saturday

Out to dinner at a steakhouse with my husband to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary! (And we are using a Groupon!)

Sunday

Not sure yet - waiting to see what is on sale starting Wednesday
