May 10th Monday Meal Planning

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I made a chocolate cake to bring to my Mother in law along with a BIG bowl of sliced strawberries from our garden. It was a nice day despite the bit of rain we had in the morning (which the garden loved!) For dinner, my husband grilled some chicken, and the boys made baked potatoes and salad, with lettuce picked from the garden. I taught my younger son how to pick the older leaves and leave the rest of the lettuce plants. He's now an experience lettuce picker! :) Sorry, no pictures to share, but it was enjoyed by all!

This week I'll be continuing to incorporate more of our garden produce into our meals. This week I'll have lettuce, snow peas, and broccoli for our meals. Here's what I'm planning for our dinners this week!

Monday: Chicken lo mein with broccoli, snow peas, and carrots

Tuesday: Pasta with rapini and cannellini beans

Wednesday: Bean, cheese, and rice burritos. I'll be making a big batch of refried beans in the crockpot - some for this dinner, some for another dinner.

Thursday: Sausage and Rice casserole, salad

Friday: Homemade pizza night - one with ham/pineapple/onions, the other undecided at the moment, we'll see what we get in our farm share this week.

Saturday: Black beans, greens (whatever we get from the farm), and mushroom enchiladas

Sunday: Leftover night

What's your plan for this week? Need some ideas? Check out's Menu Plan Monday meal planning roundup!


  1. I have a thin pizza crust that works every time for me. It has worked for me in Georgia where it's always humid and in southern Colorado where it's always NOT humid. I'd love to share it with you because it took me YEARS to find one we liked. It's on my blog right here:

    Also, I'm going to follow you now. Found you at org junkie. Great blog! I hope that pizza crust works out for you. It's really easy and tastes delicious. :)

  2. Hi Michelle, thanks for stopping by! Your pizza looks yummy! I haven't made any with a white sauce -- I'm going to keep that in mind. You're pizza dough sounds yummy too! I've just started adding seasonings to my dough. I'll definitely be trying that recipe.

    Your blog is just amazing. I love your ideas!
