Menu Plan Monday

This is my first participation in Menu Plan Monday, hosted by The Organizing Junkie. I can't help but love someone who calls themself a "junkie" about something so wonderful as "organizing". I'm not a very organized person. I used to be. I wish I were again. I'm trying to get there, but it's taking some time. I do plan my week's menu and TRY to plan my week's chores, projects, etc.

Here's my menu plan for this week and some reasonings for why we're eating what when...

Monday - some kind of baked chicken. probably Margarita chicken (first thing listed here.) and Stinkerbell's famous baked potatoes. (Stinkerbell's first softball game is tonight at 5:30. I'll try to get this ready beforehand so that we can just come home after the game and pig out.)

Tuesday - quesadillas. This is something I can do short-order cook style. We either use fat free or whole wheat tortillas. I take a can of chicken and drain it, then stir chili powder, cumin and cinnamon into it as I shred it with a fork. Then I load up the shells with chicken, drained rotel, diced chiles, chopped onions, jalapenos (not for me!) and cheese. These can be very low fat and low WW points.

Wednesday - hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill.

Thursday - The Mighty Hunter's business is hosting an Open House/Grand Opening this night. We will probably eat some of the stuff there and/or get a pizza delivered to the breakroom. I'm making brownies for the night. The rest of the stuff is coming from the deli or Sam's. The kids will be getting spoiled by their Nanny and will eat whatever they want.

Friday - second softball night of the week. I think I'll do burritos or something that can reheat easily after the game.

Saturday - taco ring.

Sunday - grilled pork chops, baked veggie something or other.

I am glad that I am not the only one trying to plan a menu around ball games. We have one that starts at 7:30 tonight so I am doing Chili in the crockpot...that way they can eat before the game and it will still be fine after.

Tomorrow will be a challenge...a 6pm game in one city and a 7:30 game in another...
