Menu Plan Monday ~ March 15

Menu Plan Monday LogoI’m sitting in the blogger lounge at the South by Southwest Interactive conference trying to create my menu plans for the week. Talk about switching contexts. I’ve had three great days learning and networking, but tomorrow night life has to return to normal. This week is also Spring Break, and the grandparents are in charge, so it’s just us adults eating dinner until Saturday night. After a few meals last week that were very adult-friendly, this week I’ll be focusing on easy and fun meals so I can maximize our kid-free time. This week’s menu plan looks like this:

  • Monday: Dinner downtown after SXSW sessions
    After being so busy at the conference it will be nice to sit down to a quite dinner prepared by someone else. Now that we don’t eat out as much, a dinner out is a true treat.
  • Tuesday: Grilled Crab Legs with Provencal Butter with grilled veggies and potatoes
    Crab legs are a true grown-up treat, and with the beautiful weather, the grill is a perfect place to cook them. We’ll have dinner for two outside on the porch.
  • Wednesday: Steak Fajitas with rice and beans
    Fajitas are a fun and easy mid-week meal that we can enjoy on the porch (again) if weather permits. We’ll use the leftovers for lunches for the rest of the week.
  • Thursday: Italian Sausages and Zucchini with egg noddles
    This quick sauté hints of spring and summer, and is very easy to put together. We’ll enjoy our last dinner alone with a bottle of wine and a bit of fruit and cheese.
  • Friday: Easy Chicken Satay with steamed rice and edamame
    We’ll be having some friends over for an easy dinner and drinks on Friday night, and everyone loves meat on a stick. I’ll marinade the chicken in the morning before I go to work so putting dinner together will be easy.
  • Saturday: On the way home from the airport
    We’ll continue our tradition of grabbing dinner out after someone comes home from a trip.
  • Sunday: Chicken fried rice
    As the family settles back into the school routine an easy and satisfying dinner perfect. I’ll use leftover chicken satay along with some peas and carrots to whip up a quick fried rice.

    I hope you enjoyed the conference.

    Your menu plan sounds delicious.

    I really enjoy MPM because I’m able to get loads of recipe ideas.

    Just another reason for loving blogging.

    Well, I’ve got to get back to some window shopping on QVC. They have a cute gnome on right now.
