Menu Plan... Here comes May!

Well let's review last week's menu.
Mrs. Ringle's Brisket was a smash. I have made it before, but it's been a long time. It made Sunday dinner plus leftovers for dinner another night, AND enough for hubby to take for lunch one day. WOO HOO! Love that.
We did not have the tacos scheduled for Thursday because we were invited to a neighborhood get-together, so we got a sitter and ordered pizza for son #3 and sitter. On Friday, son #3 spent the night camping out with a friend, so hubby and I had a DATE! A for-real, sit-down-and-talk-as-long-as-you-want, DATE!!! It was wonderful. And the Roast chicken that got moved from Wednesday to Saturday turned out delish. Overall, a pretty successful week.

So we've got some modifications/carryovers for this week. On the baseball schedule, there were no games scheduled for this week. But we didn't know that's because there's a TOURNAMENT!! Which means we don't know when we'll be playing, from day to day. So it could be interesting.

Ravioli lasagna (because I have ravioli on hand, and dh won't eat it plain, but he LOVES lasagna), tossed salad, french bread
Monday~ Tacos (from last week)
Tuesday~ Sandwiches and chips
Wednesday~ Flank steak, salad, bread with Italian dipping sauce
Thursday~ BBQ chicken in the oven, pasta salad, corn muffins
Friday~ Breakfast for dinner
Saturday~ Burgers & dogs on the grill, baked beans, and salad

Any of this could change due to the unknowns with the baseball schedule - we could be hitting a drive-thru somewhere... but we'll start with this plan. :) Check out more plans at Laura's!

Thank you for leaving your comment on my blog! Our weather is looking good for the outdoor idea for our May Day party (and the grass is looking pretty green, too). I see that you start your menus on Sunday like I do. It just fits my plan to shop on Saturday and begin the menu week on Sunday. Looks like a great food week at your house!
