    Week 687 Weekly Menu

    Hey Guys! We took an impromptu weekend road trip, so I will create my menu tomorrow. But thought I’d at least put this post up in the meantime for those of you with your menus ready to go! Share in the comments below…and I’ll see you tomorrow!

    Week 686 Weekly Menu

    Hello! Wow, I only have one carry-over idea from last week…I actually cooked! Woohoo! My first foray into Thai food was delicious, especially the Pad Thai. I’ll share the recipe soon! Still working on my curry recipe…it was good but needs some tweaking.

    Week 686 Weekly Menu: Monday - Chicken Parm; Tuesday - Frittata; Wednesday - Gumbo; Thursday - Leftovers; Friday - Caprese Paninis; Saturday - Takeout; Sunday - Island Pork

    MONDAY:

    • Chicken Parmesan, Pasta and Salad
    • A few quick notes: First, the recipe I linked to is old and before I knew how to write recipes, so, it’s a guide more than anything. One day I’ll have to do a legit chicken parm post. Second, due to my wheat allergy, I will be using Kikkoman GF Panko and Tinkayada Pasta Joy for my portions. Love both those products!

    TUESDAY:

    • Frittata because we have TONS of eggs from our chickens we need to use up! Will find ingredients at the store that look yummy to add to the frittata.

    WEDNESDAY:

    THURSDAY:

    • Leftovers

    FRIDAY:

    SATURDAY:

    • Local Takeout Night

    SUNDAY:

    Your turn! Share your menus in the comments below. Thank you and have a good, delicious, and safe week!
