Menu Planning Monday

It’s Monday again and its gorgeous in the PNW! We are in the middle of a heat wave and I must admit I’m loving it! It’s been in the 80’s for the past two days.  It’s so nice!  I haven’t really been wanting to cook so we’ve been grilling.  It counts, right?!?

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

Monday: Crockpot Beef & Noodles, with veggie sticks and fruit.

I’m also making chicken broth in the crockpot.  I love that I can have two of them going and it doesn’t make the kitchen any warmer! And homemade chicken broth…YUM!

Tuesday: Steak, baked potato, & a veggie.

Wednesday: Chicken Spaghetti

Thursday: Fiesta Chicken

Friday: I have no idea yet but I’ll be using up whatever it in our fridge.  I’m thinking a stir-fry might be nice.


A while back Elizabeth mentioned on Twitter that she signed up for a free course on Child Nutrition and Cooking.  I thought is sounded interesting so I checked it up and signed up too.  It started today and I’ve watched the video and so far: AMAZING!  So far it’s been simple stuff, things I already knew but it’s nice to be reminded of them.  The class started today and I'm not sure if you can still enroll.  If you can, GO DO IT NOW! 

Linking up with:This Flourishing Life's Menu Monday


  1. I'd love to try the crock-pot beef and noodles!
