Menu Plan Monday - March 26th edition

A busy work week ahead with three evening commitments - two calls to clients in Asia and one speaking engagement.  The 3 weekend evenings are open though.  So this week needs a lot of easy to prepare or prepare in advance meals during the week and fun plans for the weekend.  Here's my plan.

Monday - After dinner call: Turkey burgers, squash & green beans
Tuesday - After dinner call:  Chili, salad, cornbread
Wednesday - Sauteed salmon, roasted asparagus, oranges
Thursday - Speaking night: Leftover barley chicken soup, cornbread, salad
Friday - Chicken pasta salad, oranges
Saturday - Date night
Sunday - Omelet with peppers & tomatoes, broccoli, toast


  1. You sound very busy. So smart of you to plan ahead. I have been trying to make this part of each week but so far, it's been hit or miss - mostly miss.

    You have inspired me to do a little planning for our dinners this week to make my life just a little less hectic.

    Have a great week!


    1. Adrienne, it does make the week less hectic although I really don't like doing it as I have just made decisions each morning for many years. What I am finding is that I am suggesting going out at the last minute less and buying less at the store and since I want to minimize stockpiling that is a good thing.

  2. Sounds like a great week! I usually menu plan too. Now that I have a more general blog I'll have to start posting my plans again too. Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog :)

    1. I look forward to following your new blog!

  3. Great menu plan with lots of ideas. My turkey burgers are always so dry.. I'm looking forward to trying some of your ideas!

    Hope your week is off to a good start!
