Menu Plan Monday

Ah, here I am finally joining in on Menu Plan Monday! I have to tell you that having my 8 week menu plan has made things so much simpler! There are very few repeats, so neither I nor my family gets bored with the meals, plus shopping and planning are a breeze!! This week, I am on week 3, but there are a couple of adjustments as we'll be having guests on Saturday AND I got a fondue pot this weekend as a gift from my sweet hubby. I've been wanting one for ages (my favorite restaurant is The Melting Pot, but it's so expensive!! Now I can make a delicious fondue dinner at home. In fact, last night we did chocolate fondue for dessert. The kids had a blast!

So here's our adapted menu -

TuesdayCrockpot Mexi-Chicken, Rice, Salad

Wednesday - Tostadas

Thursday – Fondue Sampler (shrimp, steak, chicken, and veggies- dipping sauces on side)

Friday -Potato Lover’s Salad

SaturdayMahlouba, hummus, salad (our guests are former missionaries to Jordan, hence the Arabic menu!)

Sunday – Sloppy Joes, Cole Slaw, Chips

Monday - Roast Sticky Chicken, Salad, Green Beans
So, if you are looking for more menu plan ideas, pop on over to the Menu Plan Monday home and check it out!

Looks delicious! I'm so impressed with your 8-week plan. My goal is just to develop 4, 6-week seasonal menus over time. Have a great week!
