Menu Plan Monday - Staycation

Joe is taking a golf staycation this week. He has a membership to a local golf course, so in the mornings he will be golfing. In the afternoons he will be putting down gravel underneath the deck for weed and erosion prevention. Yesterday he laid down the fabric. Today he went with his dad to get about 3 tons of pea gravel at a local quarry. He spread out some of the gravel, but the rest should be done by tomorrow. I have no idea what he'll do the rest of the week. Must come up with a honey-do list.

With the staycation in mind, I planned out this week's menu to be pretty simple.

Monday - red BBQ sandwiches, Betty Crocker Creamy Italian pasta salad with some salami, swiss cheese and black olives

Tuesday - crockpot Italian beef sandwiches, frozen french fries, Velveeta Shells and Cheese (I know that there are 2 starches, but the box expired last week, so we need to use it soon and fries just "go" with sandwiches.)

Wednesday - Southwestern Turkey Casserole

Thursday - jar o' Ragu, box o' pasta, frozen garlic bread, and salad

Friday - redeem another coupon for free Papa Murphy's pizza

Saturday - grill night - maple honey pork chops

Sunday - OAMC Day, so one of those meals

  1. OMG that pork roast looks so good! Much better than our little chops I shredded for our BBQ pork.
