Menu Plan Monday 8/2/10

This week we're going to be eating on a beef roast.  A few weeks ago Publix had beef bottom round roast on sale for $1.99 a pound.  The catch?  I had to purchase the entire bottom round.  24 pounds.  The butcher was nice enough to cut it into 4 small roasts and 4 one-pound packages of beef strips to use in fajitas and stir fry.  So the idea is to sear the beef roast and then cook it in the slow cooker with some beef broth and seasonings.  I'm hoping we'll have enough leftovers to remake them into Shredded BBQ Beef and Shredded Beef Tacos. 

Here's the meal plan for the week. 

Weekly breakfasts:  cereal with bananas, blueberry muffins, 

Weekly snacks:  graham crackers with Nutella, cherries, blueberry muffins, peaches, crackers with peanut butter, grapes,

Weekly lunches:  Veggie Pasta Salad with Pepperoni, Cheese & Macaroni with Hot Dogs,  Applesauce, Apple slices

Monday:  Beef Roast (crock pot) Potatoes, Carrots, Onions, Celery, Yorkshire Pudding

Tuesday:  Beef Roast REMAKE #1:  Shredded BBQ Beef Sandwiches, Spicy Sweet Potatoes Fries, Cole Slaw

Thursday:  Beef Roast REMAKE #2:  Shredded Beef Tacos, Mexican Rice & Beans (making burritos with leftovers)

Saturday:  Lunch:  Tuna Sandwiches; Supper:  Nachos

Sunday:  Lunch:  Mexican Beef & Rice Burritos (from the Thursday); Supper:  Crock Pot Lasagna, Salad, Garlic Bread Sticks

This week I'm hoping to share our recipe for Garlic Bread Sticks and my mother-in-law's Fig Preserves. 

Hope you have a tasty and filling week!  Be sure to visit Organizing Junkie for more weekly meal plans.

You started working outside the house, and I just quit my job. I hope I can get it together like you! I want to be able to pull together my meal plans like you have, however we are currently trying to clean out the food in the freezer. I recently did a pantry clean out, (all of the expired foods). Do you have a book or a list that you pull your tried and true recipes from?

You are so sweet to "think" I have it all together :) I'm a list person and having our meals lined up keep me on task for the week and month. Most of the recipes on my recipe blog are from family members. There are some I get from and read the reviews. I learned this from a friend. Hope that helps!
