Menu Plan Monday

I haven't posted a menu plan on here for a few weeks. Last week I didn't even scratch out a little rough idea for dinners and ended up paying for it by having to visit the grocery store three different times. Not fun.

Anyhow, we're moving to our new house (first time home buyers!) this week and I know that if I want us to eat healthy foods at home, instead of grabbing fast food or take out, a menu plan is needed!

I'm going to grill almost every night so that I can pack up my kitchen. And grilling is a fantastic way to keep things healthy (no oil or butter needed to cook in!) while also keeping your home cool during the summer.


Monday - Grilled Pizza*

Tuesday - P.F. Changs (testing their new frozen entree's for two)

Wednesday - Grilled Corn and Steak Salad*

Thursday - Chicken Wings, Broccoli, and Roasted Potatoes.

Friday - Cajun Rubbed Burgers with Caramelized Onions.*

Saturday - sure. :)

Sunday - Chicken Paninis*

Bread Baking Day

I'm going to go a little crazy today and make a ton of homemade baked goods.

Overnight Whole Wheat Bread*

Garlic & Herb Hamburger Buns*

Whole Wheat Raisin Cinnamon Bagels

*Indicates recipes that will be featured on here this week or early next week. :) 


  1. Grilled Pizza sounds intriguing! Happy home-owning!

  2. I'm curious to see if your overnight whole wheat bread is similar to one I tried a while back!

    Yay for a new house!
    Boo to the moving process. (unless you like it) ☺

  3. Nice menu. I love grilled pizza, it's so much better than anything from Domino's. Your recipes are fabulous and very creative. I won't lie...I steal all my best ideas from someone else. Can't believe you're moving and cooking. Good Luck

  4. @Reagan - Thanks! The fact that we are now the ones responsible for fixing things is a little nerve wracking but also fantastic because I don't have to live with the bathroom forever. :)

    @ Annette - I'm going to use my Mom's whole wheat bread and then adjust it so I can store the dough in the fridge and just use parts of it when I need it. Her recipe makes 5 loaves so I really don't want to make them all at once.

    @ Ginger - Thanks for the compliments! You just brightened my day!


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
