Joyce's Menu Plan 5/2 - 5/8

The plan is to go grocery shopping after work today, so last night as I was making my list, I threw together this meal plan.  The past few weeks have been a little odd for my family, with me being gone on a trip and my son getting his tonsils out and being on a soft diet.  We are finally ready to get everything back to normal!

Thursday - Barbecups and mixed greens
These "meat cupcakes" as my son calls them are always a huge hit with my kids; I need something that will meet no resistance after dragging the kids grocery shopping on the way home from school and work.
Friday - Tuscan Chicken and Beans (slow cooker)
With the weather as nice as it has been, I have been wanting to spend more time outside and away from the kitchen.  Coming home to this slow cooker meal will be great on a Friday.
Saturday - Pizza at my niece's birthday party
I will gladly bring a salad to accompany the pizza, but no cooking for me this day!
Sunday - Easy Cheesy Enchiladas and salad
Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I am bringing out an old favorite for dinner.
Monday - Asian Pork Chops
My husband just bought a new grill; I know I can count on him to cook our favorite pork chops to perfection.  All I will have to do is make the marinade.  I will serve them with rice, seaweed sheets, and some fresh veggies.  My kids can't get enough of the seaweed sheets.  Fortunately, they now carry them at Costco!
Tuesday - Salmon with Dill Sauce
Another meal for my husband to grill while we play on the swing set. We all love the Dill Sauce for dipping our salmon.
Wednesday - 4 Cheese Lasagna (slow cooker)
 My husband will be late getting home.  Another perfect day to not have dinner waiting for us when the kids and I get home.  I just have to remember to do a bit of prep work Tuesday night!
