Menu Plan Monday - June 1

Eeek! It's already June 1; can you believe it? At the last minute tonight I got to working up a menu plan for the week. I think that, beginning next week, I'll do up several in advance. I'll just have to remember that it'll be a bit flexible because one never knows what will be on sale at the grocery store. We have a new Meijer store that I'm loving because their sales top all of the others in our neighborhood - match them up with manufacturer coupons and Meijer Mealbox coupons and I'm all set.

Since we live in Michigan where pasties rule, I thought I'd try my hand at one. I found a ton of old tried and true recipes and chose one that I thought everyone would like. My family, with the exceptions of Jeff and Josh - the meat eaters - would generally not like the traditional pasties with rutabaga and all of the meat and gravy. I'm going to try a chicken and bacon one and update it a bit.

So, here's this week's plan:


Italian breadsticks
Cherry cheesecake


Shredded chicken and bacon pasties- combining a few of the recipes and tweaking them
Macaroni salad
Magic Milkshakes


Roast chicken
Mashed potatoes


Pizza & pop


Tossed salads
Chocolate cake


Chips and salsa


On your own

As always, Organized Junkie has a huge list of menu plans. You have no excuse not to get some new ideas for dinner!
