Weekly Menu Plan for May 10-16

This week's menu will need to consist of things that we already have because I am still working on the $30/week grocery challenge. Here are our plans:

Sunday (Mother's Day) - eat out - Mama ain't cooking today
Monday - Boston Butt slices, sweet potatoes and onions, fresh collard greens from the garden
Tuesday - Breakfast Hoagies, fruit
Wednesday - Enchilada Casserole (several of the ladies that I work with have ranted and raved about this recipe as well as this site), watermelon slices
Thursday - Grilled hamburgers, potato chips
Friday - Blackened chicken strips, corn on cob, sliced tomatoes, garlic bread
Saturday - Ribs (didn't cook this last week), potato salad, cole slaw

For more menu ideas for this week, check out Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.


  1. I make an enchilada casserole quite often, but it sure doesn't look as cheesy as yours! I'll have to try it sometime.

  2. The main part of all our main meals this week si stuff we already have.
    I still need to get some veggies and bread and cheese though.

  3. Excellent menu! Would you please tell me how you make your blackened chicken???

  4. Crazydaisy, I get a cast iron skillet really hot (almost to the stage that it starts smoking). I add a little olive oil to the pan when I turn on the heat. I sprinkle the blackened seasoning on the chicken and toss it in the skillet. I turn the chicken every few minutes until it is done. We also do this with salmon and it is wonderful, too.

    It's very easy but you will need to turn on the exhaust fan because it does tend to have some smoke and steam (kind of like fajitas that you see in the Mexican restaurants). When we do salmon, the house tends to smell like that for a day or so but the chicken doesn't leave much scent.

  5. Sounds like a yummy week!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)
