Menu plan Monday: July 26th 2010

It's Monday again, which means it's time for Menu Plan Monday, hosted by Laura over at orgjunkie.com. I think I mentioned before that my menus lately are from savingdinner.com. If you're familiar with The Flylady, then you've probably heard of Leeanne at Saving Dinner. Anyway it's really simple to use, I signed up for 3 months worth of menus. The way it works is once a week I get a link for the new menus. Then I just log in and pick out which menu I want (some of the menus available are regular , heart healthy, low carb, etc.) for the week. It's got a shopping list as well which is organized by section of the grocery store.

Monday: Crock Cooker Lemon Chicken, Salad, brown rice
Tuesday: Chicken Ratatouille Pasta, Salad
Wednesday: Leftovers/Fend for yourself night
Thursday: Turkey Broccoli Salad,
Friday: Tomato-Herb Scallops
Saturday: Turkey burgers
Sunday: Grilled Creole Pork Chops, sweet potatoes, salad

I wanted to share today's recipe with you, it's one we haven't tried before, we'll see how it turns out.

I love menu planning and it is a good way to save money at the store. We have a specialized diet for my husband and I get recipes from a website.
