Menu Plan Monday: August 2-8

This week's menu is a lot of repeats from the previous week. With my mother-in-law cooking us a meal while she was here and bringing us a rotisserie chicken (and I pulled some leftover homemade pizza from the freezer), we didn't get to a lot of the things I had planned. I did do a lot of cooking though. I took two meals to couples in our Sunday school class that just had babies and I made 4 coffeecakes to take to Claire and David's summer preschool program teachers on their last day of school. (In total, I made 4 quiches and 4 coffeecakes this week.)

I also tried these two recipes over the weekend and they were both yummy!

(1) Banana pancakes (I added chocolate chips and left off the strawberry topping). Will and the kids really liked these. But they were not my favorite. I have not been a huge fan of banana stuff during this pregnancy for some reason.

(2) Feta Black Bean Dip. [Warning: this recipe makes a ton of dip. I halved it and we still had plenty for four adults with leftovers. I could also eat my weight in this stuff so I was pleased with all the leftovers!]

Plus, we joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) this week so I got this yummy box of fresh produce to use. You will notice a lot of squash in this week's menu plan! I have also been loving the fresh cucumbers and tomatoes and fresh basil.

Monday: leftover Mango tilapia, rice pilaf, steamed broccoli (see photo below ... this meal was too pretty not to take a picture!) .

Tuesday: leftover Ham & cheese quiche, coffeecake or muffins, fruit

Wednesday: Mozzarella & basil panini, chips

Thursday: pork tenderloin, roasted veggies, rolls

Friday: Chicken puffs, green veggie, jello salad

Saturday: grilled pork chops, baked acorn squash, green beans, rolls

Sunday (lunch): eat out

Sunday (dinner): leftovers

That mango salsa on top of the tilapia looks delicious! I'm a new follower by the way. Congrats on the little one coming next month.

How do you get your menu links to show up as the recipes like that on a seperate page? I can link to another website but don't know how to get them to show like yours do without all the extra.

Mango salsa look delicious!!!

Sara ... I create a google document and publish it as a web page and then link to the web page like you would link to any other website. Hope that helps!
