Menu Plan for the Week 9/11 – 9/17


How last week’s menu went:

Last week went pretty well. The store was out of chicken leg quarters, so I roasted a whole chicken instead. The Chick-fil-A dinner got bumped to this week, so I made pizza that night  instead.

Favorite meal from last week:

That would have to be the dinner my wonderful husband made for me on my birthday: Steak Au Poivre, sautéed asparagus & mushrooms, roasted red pepper & crab bisque, brown sugar encrusted baked Brie with berry lemon bread. Yes.  The man knows how to cook. He also made me a chocolate cake! The cake was especially meaningful because he does not enjoy baking. This was the first time I have ever seen him bake a cake!

This Week’s Menu Plan


  • Leftovers/snacky dinner



  •   Friends are treating us to Chick-fil-A! (Bumped from last week)



  • Chicken Noodle Soup (I usually modify a recipe from my Cook’s Illustrated cookbook, but I might try this one from Simply Recipes this time.)
  • Bread or muffins



Other Updates:

  • I’m hoping to post about some exciting progress with the laundry and the refrigerator – maybe even more – by Friday.

I’m linking up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.
