Monday Meal Planning - April 26th

It was a beautiful weekend, and my younger son decided he wanted to alter his birthday plan to celebrate early so he could have a barbecue birthday dinner. So last night, we had a really fun afternoon grilling, enjoying our free grill! Also, my husband finished building another section of our raised bed garden. I have some planting to do today!

Note from last week: that Double Dutch Macaroni and Cheese with Chard was great! I used cheddar and monterey jack cheese, chard from our garden, and homemade fresh bread crumbs. I'll definitely be making it again.

This week, my husband has some work (yay!) which puts a bit of a twist on our schedule. Here's what I'm planning this week.

Monday: Stirfry with chicken, snow peas, leaks, and baby carrots, served with rice

Tuesday: Broccoli quiche

Wednesday: Leftover night

Thursday: Vegetable Lasagna - I'll use chard from the garden in place of the spinach

Friday: Homemade pizza night. The last two weeks I've made one with spinach (from the garden), feta and red onions, which everyone loved! I highly recommend the combination.

Saturday: Chicken and Spring Green Gratin

Sunday: Roast chicken, mashed potatoes and turnips, and salad

Have fun planning YOUR weekly menu! If you are looking for more ideas, check out's Menu Planning Monday roundup!
