Menu Plan Monday

Hello and Happy Monday! I am working on this post late Sunday night as I am anticipating weather like we had this weekend (absolutely perfect) and I am planning on being super productive today! I will be back on later in the day to check out other menus for some inspiration. I did some research on some of the MPM blogs that I read and thought we might go ahead and have a brand new recipe week. Here it goes, I'll let ya know how they go over!
Monday: Slow Cooker Beef and Bean Burritos. I got this recipe from Rona over at Berry-Morins Bits and Tips.
Tuesday: Shrimp Fried Rice this recipe is from Barb, SFO at Mom's Fridge.
Thursday: Steak, baked potatoes and salad. No, I know this isn't a new recipe, but I was inspired by Annie over at my life as Annie. I have been wanting some good steak on the grill. mmmm I could go for some right now!
Friday: Ordering pizza. Okay not something new and exciting, but hey- maybe I will order something crazy like vegetables on it ? I just might - you never know!
Saturday: Slow cooker pineapple pork roast which I saw on Dana's blog and I believe she noticed it first on Laura's blog. Anyhow, looks yummy and although I usually don't do crock pot meals on the weekend. It might be nice to just hang out and enjoy the family Saturday instead of messing around in the kitchen!:)
So there is my planning for the week. I believe our dessert for the week will be snicker doodles. Ethan loves anything Cinnamon and he hasn't picked something in a while, so his pick is it!
Have a great week and hopefully lots of yummy meals!

You are so on top of things! I love warm weather so my hubby can dust off the old grill! It's my way of getting out of cooking and he feels "MANLY":)

I like snickerdoodles!
looks like a great menu for the week! Let me know if you are interested in my biscuit Tostadas...This recipe is kid friendly and from the taste of home older issue, I bet your family would love it and it is so easy!
Have a Blessed week!

How fun--a "new recipe week!" I think I'll have to plan one of those soon. Enjoy the fried rice. It's a great way to use up any "miscellaneous" you might have hanging around :)

I am going to have to do the Shrimp Fried Rice and Restaurant Style Chicken next week! The kids love Chicken and Shrimp so those two should be great hits. The pineapple pork roast was really good. I hope you enjoy it.

Your menu looks great!
Now everytime I ask Matt what he wants for dinner he says, "steak."
I guess he really enjoyed it too!

I hope you and your family enjoy the Burritos. My husband and son just loved them.
You have some terrific recipe picks. And the Snickerdoodles look like a winner, especially for my husband's many work potlucks.
