Menu Plan {September 2nd- 8th}

Do three day weekends throw your whole week off as much as they do mine? Monday never seems like Monday, and Tuesday feels like Monday, and I can’t seem to figure out what day it is all week long.

Don’t get me wrong, I love long weekends and am looking forward to a fun day with my family tomorrow, but I just have a hard time getting back into routine after a holiday weekend.

We had some friends over yesterday and I barbecued a ton of meat. Well, not a ton, but enough that I won’t have to cook for a few days, and that is always nice. Leftover bbq is perfect anytime and I love being able to use it in different ways.

Here is the plan for dinner this week.


Make ahead breakfasts -Over the last few weeks I have put quite a few things in the freezer, so most mornings I will just let everyone pick what they want.


Yogurt and Muffins from the freezer – I have several varieties of muffins in the freezer to choose from.


Leftover BBQ Pork over baked potatoes

Sandwiches using leftover BBQ and grilled carrots

Bacon and Egg Salad Sandwiches

Dinner with family at the in-laws

Chili Relleno Casserole

Triple Meat Pizza- I will share the recipe soon.

Mexican Pork Roast

  1. We made the grilled carrots the other night in a grill basket and loved them. We weren’t real patient and they were “crisp tender” but a little more on the crisp side. With carrots, that is just fine. They had a wonderful flavor!
