Menu Plan Monday: 7/9-7/13

Has anyone else heard of Food on the Table? I love this site and they have an app. Apps make me happy. Mostly I love it because I can see all the sales for my grocery store for the week and add needed items and recipe items to my grocery list in the app.

The recipes from this site are great too. I always love finding new recipe ideas because I tend to get in a rut. I really enjoy trying recipes for the first time. It keeps cooking more interesting. This week I'm trying two recipes from Food on the Table.

I found a link on a blog I was looking at, (can't remember which one) for a code to join Food on the Table for a year for free. The code was SUMMERFREE. Not sure if it's still valid, but it's worth a shot!

If I could change something about this site and app I would like to be able add in your own meals or recipes as part of the weekly meal plan. I'd also like for them to show meal plans in a chart or grid form for days of the week. I just like looking at it that way better.

Here's what we're having this week.

Monday: Saucy Crock Pot Chicken Thighs (I would link to it, but I think you have to join Food on the Table) and steamed veggies

Tuesday: Pot roast with mashed potatoes and veggies. I'm trying this recipe from Jo Lynne.

Wednesday: Korean Beef- Had this week before last and we loved it so much we're having it again.

Thursday: Italian sausage bake-also from Food on the Table and salad

Friday: frozen pizza, I know, healthy. But by Friday afternoons, I'm usually pretty exhausted and just don't have it in me.

Saturday: Probably Moe's and something Andrew cooks.

Sunday: Leftovers

I don't usually plan meals for the weekend even though I probably should. I feel like I need a break from planning and cooking all week so we usually have frozen pizza, leftovers, something my husband comes up with or take out. I'll probably start planning them soon, I just need to feel like the weekends are a break right now.

Happy eating this week!

I linked to Menu Plan Monday at Org Junkie and Menu Plan Monday at Musings of a Housewife.

  1. I'm popping in for a visit from Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday today!
    I haven't heard of Food on the Table but I think it's a fantastic idea!
    You have a delicious menu planned. I pinned the Korean Beef for next week's menu plan. The Saucy Crockpot Chicken and Pot Roast sound wonderful.
    I hope you continue to enjoy the summer in your neck of the woods.
    Can you believe we were already at 101 degrees at 10am, in Las Vegas?!

  2. Oh good grief that's so stinkin hot!!! I always feel sorry for myself living in the hot, humid south, but Las Vegas sounds super hot too. Stay cool! Thanks for looking! I'll check your bloggy out too!

  3. How did the pot roast turn out?? :-) I have made that Korean Beef, and you're right. It is SO good! Thanks for reminding me about it.

  4. Thanks for reading! I get a lot of my ideas from your blog and I love them! The pot roast was wonderful! I made it again for some friends this weekend and they loved it too! I like cooking it in my dutch oven instead of the crock pot for a change. And yes the Korean Beef has become a favorite of ours. Thanks again!
