Menu Plan Monday – July 19

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 18, 2010

On Saturday, I was in and out of the kitchen…trying to get a jump on this coming week!  I was hoping for a little “focused” time in their during Tyler’s nap, but Steve was out of town…so the prep time and batch cooking didn’t quite go as planned.

Le sigh.

But, I still managed to knock out most of my batch cooking list for this week! Ideas for the pesto and recipe for the sausage jalapeno swirl bread coming soon.

Still to do…

  • Brown the Chorizo sausage and make breakfast tacos.  Will do on Tuesday morning.
  • Make Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake (or something like that). Will do Monday.
  • Soak and cook chickpeas.  Will do Monday.

And for dinner this week…

Monday - Chickpea Tuna Salad – using garden tomatoes

Tuesday – Grilled Honey Mustard Drumsticks

Wednesday – Beef Kebabs

Thursday – Pork Chops (On sale this week for $1.88/lb…not the greatest price, but it will do!)

Friday – Scrambled Farm Fresh Eggs, Turkey Bacon and Fruit

Saturday – Leftovers or Sandwiches

Sunday - Burgers

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!

I find the Red Gold Tomatoes coupon on their website. How do I get to it after clicking on your link to it?

There is a coupon box at the bottom right of the page…follow the directions from there. You *might* have to sign up…I was already signed up, so I didn’t have to do that part. From there you can print the coupon.
