Menu Plan Monday – The “My Dad’s In Town” Edition

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 17, 2010

My Dad is visiting for a few days…so I’m not exactly sure what we’ll be having for dinner…but I have no doubt that he’ll treat us to his specialty…grilled steaks. Mmmm.

(I was hoping to do a Pantry Challenge Week this week…but we’ll hold off on that until next week.)

Monday - Dad’s Grilling Steaks!

Tuesday – Out for dinner?!

Wednesday – I’ll be in Wisconsin with the baby, big boys are on their own!

Thursday – Chili or Soup

Friday – Spaghetti with Spinach Meatballs

Saturday – Pasta with Bolognese Sauce

Sunday - Leftovers or Soup

I will post the recipes each night after I make the meal. If you see a meal you are interested in, please check back for the recipe later in the week!

Your plan for this week is similar to what mine will be…I had an emergency surgery yesterday and am at the mercy of whoever is willing to cook. I have a menu plan on the refrigerator, but I doubt it will get followed. Tomorrow’s meal is already here someone from church sent it over. :)

There’s nothing like having dad grill steaks, no matter how old or young you are. Have a great visit!
