Weekly Menu 8/21-8/24



  This shrimp plate was from a couple a weeks ago but, I may have to put it on the menu again soon.  Everyone liked it.

  This week I guess pasta is the word of the week.  Although one day I'm going to try to make the Zucchini pasta!  I did a run through of my pantry items think I have my ingredients organized for this week and next but, for some reason I'm second guessing myself so we shall see.  I'm not sure I'm feeling the days I have specified but that's ok. The menu is planned and I can switch the days around because the hard part is over.

Monday

    1. I like meat but skipping meat once or twice doesn't kill us suprisingly to my husband and I think maybe its cheaper, definitely less work sometimes.

  5. These sound delicious :) I'm always looking for new ideas of what to cook (and on a budget!) My favourite meal would be a big seafood platter preferably overlooking the Mediterranean :)

  6. All of those meals sound and look delicious. Will have to try these for sure. A favorite meal of mine that I cook is a ham and pasta bake that I can do the crockpot. Everyone at my house loves it. I love it because it is quick and easy. If I could do that meal every night, I would. Meal planning is my favorite. I do the same as you and meal plan and sometimes will switch things around. The hard part is the planning. Once that is out of the way switching meal days around isn't bad.

    1. Exactly, the days don't have to be set just the meals. I was thinking about ham the other day for some soup. Your pasta bake would have a cheese sauce? That sounds good.

  7. I recently got a spiralizer to make zucchini "pasta" so I will also be trying that this week. I love anything with shrimp so your pasta and fried rice sound great.

  20. These all sound like great recipes. I believe that pasta is an easier dish to make and you can make it with many different things. Making a weekly menu is something I used to do when my kids were younger because it made things go smoother. I never did make the zucchini pasta back them though. Thanks for sharing the recipes.
