Menu Plan, 4/16 – 4/22

We made a great family meal tonight: salmon, baby potatoes, and asparagus on the grill; plus Baked Ziti for the non-fish eaters. And, because we were celebrating a birthday, there were homemade brownies and Mint Chip Ice Cream for dessert.

J. did at least half of that cooking, but today’s puttering in the kitchen plus a batch of Chocolate Chip Banana Bread muffins make me feel somewhat primed for a week of real dinners after a long hiatus.

Monday: Easy Chicken Chili, whole grain tortilla chips, sugar snap peas

Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs in Red Wine Sauce, salad

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Make your own vegetable stromboli, salad

Friday: Grilled chicken, Citrus & Garlic Grilled Broccoli, Pull-Apart Challah

Saturday: Eat out

Sunday: Grilled hot dogs & hamburgers, Grilled Steak Fries, salad
