{Menu Plan Monday} 3/25/13

Hello all and Happy Monday!  Wow, I sound more chipper than I really am, he he.

I have a busy week ahead of me.  Meetings today, court tomorrow, staffing and party on Wednesday and lots of paperwork to fill up the rest of the week.  So, I need quick meals.

If you read my last post, you know we are leaving processed foods behind.  We have also decided to go meatless once a week and try to fit fish into the menu once a week.

Here is what I came up with:

Steak Salad with Lemon-Walnut Vinaigrette via Fitness Magazine, Whole-Grain Roll and Baked Sweet Potato Fries.

Sauteed Tilapia with Lemon-Peppercorn Pan Sauce via My Recipes. This is SO good.  I have made it a couple of times already.  Served with rice and green peas or beans.

Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans and Potatoes via Real Simple.  This recipe boasts 15 minutes of hands-on time and a total time of 50-60 minutes.  We will see.

Turkey Pesto Panini via Nature Box.  This will be the first sammie I make in my new panini grill.  So excited!  Served with a side salad.

Broccoli and White Bean Mac & Cheese via Clean Eating.

Italian Sausage Rigatoni via Key Ingredient.

We usually always have breakfast for dinner one night a week.  I am planning on trying the Whole-Wheat Oven Pancake via 100 Days of Real Food.  I also plan on making the Easy Cheesy Crackers recipe from the same site.

So, does any of this look interesting to you?

I am linking up at the following:

This Flourishing Life's Menu Monday

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Sounds like a healthy and appetizing week!

    1. Thanks Betty! I'm really trying to cook healthier for myself and family. Now if I can just stick to the menu! ;)

  2. These sound great! And I like the fact that they are quick. When you get home you don't want to have to do a lot of prep work to get dinner ready.

    1. Meg, you've got that right. When I get home I want to relax. lol.

  3. Ooo that steak salad and dressing sound amazing! Yum! And, I'm totally jealous of your panini grill! How fun!

    1. Jane, I'm so stoked that I finally got one. I used to use a little cheap version of the George Foreman grill for pressed sandwiches and it worked just fine, until I lost it in a move. lol.

  4. I've never tried a white bean mac & cheese, but I may just have to! Sounds really good!

  5. Erica, I know right? It sounded like a different take on mac & cheese that I haven't seen before. Plus it's good for you.
