I feel sort of rushed this week-we are taking a family vacation to the shore in our camper. I almost scrapped the idea of making a menu plan all together~but when you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed is exactly when you need a menu plan the most!
Monday: This & That Curry
Time to clean out the fridge! This and That Curry is a fantastic way to take a bunch of odds and ends and make a meal.
Tuesday: Venison Stroganoff & Noodles, Cooked Beets
Still have tons of venison in the freezer, I’m going to toss some in the crockpot with some cream of soup, a spoon of beef broth powder & a can of sliced mushrooms. Boiled noodles, fresh beets from the garden and it’s a meal.
Wednesday: Taco Salad in a Bag
This is one my good friend always does while camping. Each person gets a quart ziplock baggie and all the ingredients are tossed inside. They smush it around a bit to mix and eat right out of the bag. Toss it in the trash & done.
Since Wednesday is our travel day for camping, I figure this can be all prechopped & ready so all we have to do is warm the meat and toss it all in the bags. Super simple supper for the travel/setup day.
Thursday: Grilled Marinated Chicken, Grilled Zuchinni & Rolls
First full day at the campground? You’ve got to use the grill! I’m prepackaging the chicken in a gallon freezer bag with Italian dressing as a marinade. It will be defrosting & marinating all day. The zuchinni are super simple as well-brush with some of the remaining dressing and grill. Tada!
Friday: Crunchy Asian Chicken Salad
One dish meal made out of Cabbage, leftover grilled chicken and, believe it or not, Ramen noodles. Check out the Crunchy Asian Chicken Salad recipe if you’ve never seen it before.
Saturday: Grilled Pork Patties, Potato Chips & Salad
Hubs is picking up these special marinated ground pork patties from a deli in town. What the heck! Severed on rolls, hamburger style, with potato chips and a green salad (gotta get some veggies in somehow.
Sunday: Brats in Beer with Onions & Green Peppers on a roll and Macaroni Salad.
Bringing the crock pot along just so I can toss all of this in and have an easy meal waiting for us at supper time!
There it is, my quick and easy meal plan for the week. For more great idea, head on over to The Organizing Junkie. Want more info on my menu planning philosophy, check out “Why should I plan a weekly menu?“
