Monthly Meal Plan: May 2010

This month we're going to be eating on a turkey.  But to avoid the monotony of a turkey meal each night, I've tried to find recipes that would flavor the turkey differently with each meal. We'll also be having our Friday Night Pizza night and I'll be sharing more pizza recipe concoctions every Friday afternoon (by the way, if you have a family favorite pizza and would like to share, email me and we'll set up a guest post for you).  We're also going to continue having our Breakfast for dinner on Wednesday nights.  You'll see lots of Tuna Salad sandwiches on the weekends.  My husband grew up eating Tuna on Sunday for lunch and we've got accustomed to eating it and really love it.  Plus I got quite a few pouches and cans for free a while back at Kroger.
  1. Saturday Lunch:  We're running in our 2nd 5K this year.  So I'm sure we'll be eating brunch and then we'll have dinner:  Hamburgers on the Grill, Oven Cheese Fries & Fruit

    You have a GREAT menu lined up for the month. Your grilled chicken recipes look really yummy, I'll have to give them a try soon.

    WOW! I plan for 2 weeks, but I haven't done it for a month. WTG! :D Definitely frees up time thinking of what to make. :D

    Have a great day!

    Good for you to be so organized! My monthly plan went by the wayside for May. Hopefully we'll still eat. :)
