Menu Mayhem Monday: Week 2

It’s the beginning of another busy week, after yet another busy weekend and who want’s to think about cooking?  Not me… which is why tonight (in between post-school chaos and pre-family-haircuts) we’ll be dining gourmet style, enjoying white cheddar mac-n-cheese (from a box!) and frozen pizza.  Yum.  (Blech!)

The second week after payday, I try to postpone the grocery expedition as long as possible and get us as close to the next payday as I can without doing a big shop.   This means my meals don’t tend to be quite as creative though.  (Or maybe they’re more creative…but not as exciting!)   Last week’s meal plan went pretty well – although we didn’t get to the Fiesta Chicken Soup.  In no particular order, here’s what’s on the current menu in the Brown household:

Week 2:

  • Mac-n-Cheese with frozen Pizza
  • Dutch Meatball Soup (I can never get mine to taste like Mom’s, Beppe’s or Oma’s… what’s the secret?)
  • Shepherd’s Pie (this will NOT go over well with the monkeys, but I enjoy it!)
  • Peanut Chicken with Coconut Basmati (I know two fabulous Epicure reps if you want to try the recipe… but storebought sauce – or your own concoction – would work just as well.
  • Lasagna & Caesar Salad
  • Honey Mustard Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Salad & Fresh Cut Veggies
  • Chicken Fajitas

and a spare:

  • Cheesy Pasta Bake

Don’t forget to share your favourite quick and easy dinner ideas!  And if anyone knows the secret to the soup (ahem, cough, cough – Mom!) wanna let me in on it?!
