Monday Menu

I haven't been as good about planning a menu since I started back to work. Now is when I could really use it. I thought if I made a post out of my menu for the week - it would inspire me to 1- actually make a menu and 2 - follow through! You also get a look at my schedule because that affects what we will have. (ie - easy meal after a night shift, something that is easily reheated on night shift, etc) Here's what we are going to have for dinner this week:

Monday (Family Home Evening) - Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Salad
Tuesday (Errands, Dr. appts, etc)- Coconut Curried Shrimp and Mango Stew
Wednesday (night shift) - Pasta (haven't decided what kind yet)
Thursday - Ultimate Nachos (easy, and perfect to eat while watching American Idol)
Friday (night shift) - Big Salad
Saturday (date night)- Try to recreate Chicken Bryan from Carrabba's
Sunday (church) - Stuffed Shells, bread, salad

What are you having for dinner this week? (I am looking for ideas for next week)

Chicken Bryan is the best ever! Your menu looks good. I've been super on top of meal planning until this week. Today we're having leftover chicken tikka. I will have to figure out the rest eventually.

Spencer and I love the Filet Bryan. It's amazing. We created a pretty good version of it after checking out a few online recipes. Good luck!
