Menu Plan Monday - 10/24/16






This week I planned based on what I had on hand for the most part. We are at the end of the month and our grocery budget is limited -- so I am using up some freezer meals as best I can and adding in a few things that we had around.

Monday - Mexican Lime Chicken Soup
Tuesday - Mediterranean Chicken, Roasted Broccoli, and Long Grain & Wild Rice
Wednesday - Paula Deen's Goulash
Thursday - Pollo Asado, Squash, Spanish Rice
Friday - Citrus Marinated Chicken, Salad, Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Saturday - Out for a Birthday Party
Sunday - Chicken Noodle Casserole

I'll post recipes as we decide if they are good or not -- for my Citrus Chicken -- it's super easy, put the chicken in a bag and add the juice from 1 lemon (2 if small), 1 lime (2 if small), and 1 naval orange, and a couple of cloves of garlic... let it sit in the marinade for 4-6 hours before cooking. I use that for 1-2 chicken breasts... so double up if you're making more.

Since Halloween is Monday -- I'm skipping the usual weekend pizza meal this week... and we'll have pizza on Monday night.

Additionally -- how many of you guys are doing or have done Whole 30? I'm thinking about it, but I need to read more about it. Is it something you just do for 30 days and then stop -- or is it a lifestyle that you can keep up long term?
