Menu Plan {March 25th-31st}

The weather last week did not turn out very well for grilling, so I ended up changing my menu plan quite a bit. Instead of a couple days of rain, we had four days of almost constant rain. We needed the rain and are very thankful for it, so I can’t complain, but I am thankful that this week looks much warmer and nicer.

This week I am trying to use up a few things in the freezer and pantry, so most of the meals on the plan are simple recipes that are family favorites.

And if you need menu planning ideas don’t forget to follow my menu planning board on Pinterest.


Homemade Chocolate Granola ( I made this 2 weeks ago and we still have some left, not sure how that happened, but I am guessing it will be gone by the end of the week.)

Grits and Eggs




Eggs over rice, and Sausage (Breakfast for dinner)

Mexican Rice, Beans, and Quesadillas

Grilled Sausage, Chips, and Salad

Taco Pasta

Slow Cooked Fajitas

Barbecue Beef Roast and Oven Potatoes

  1. I love all the Mexican dishes on your menu! They are inspiring me as I plan a menu for this week. The oven tacos are one thing I must try!

  2. Hello Lynn,
    seeing the eggs over rice on your menu plan made me think about the recipe you have for breakfast “fried” rice. We tried that and it is an easy favorite in our house. Thanks for sharing it. Also seeing grits and eggs on your menu brought a smile to my face because my husband loves grits and eggs. In fact he HAS to have the two together and actually stirs the eggs into his grits. I can take them either way, with or without eggs.

    • Some in my family love grits plain, but my son and I will only eat them covered in eggs so we agree with your husband, they must go together. 🙂
