Menu Plan Monday :: 2.20.2017

Monday, February 20, 2017

Happy President's Day! We are coming off a spectacular weekend weather wise. It was like spring here in the northeast on Saturday and Sunday. It made me crave a juicy burger on the grill topped with Jersey tomatoes. But today, it's chilly again, and I'm easily reminded that it's still winter and that my weekly menu plan needs to reflect that. :-(

Here's what's on our plates this week:

Monday - Cheesy beef quesadillas . Quesadillas are definitely one of the easiest and crowd pleasing meals that I make. I am always looking for new recipes. I was thrilled to come across this post on

Tuesday - Italian orzo spinach soup. After sunny days and temps in the 60s over the weekend, the temps are going to drop a bit this week. Not a nosedive, per se, but they will dip down a bit enough that it becomes soup weather!

Wednesday - Steak peppercorn salad. I love salads as a main meal, but I definitely don't include them in my meal plans often enough. For this recipe, I plan to grill the steak indoors using a grill pan unless it's warm enough to do it on the grill outside.

Thursday - Caprese pasta. The forecast is for spring-like weather, so of course, I'm making a warm weather favorite: Caprese pasta. Super, super easy and equally delicious!

Friday - Dinner out

Saturday - Slow cooker Mexican pot roast. Mexican spices on a pot roast? Well, of course and yes, please. Anything that requires throwing everything in a slow cooker and walking away for hours is just my style.

Sunday - Baked ziti with spinach. Baked ziti is one of my all-time favorite comfort dishes. Pasta + ooey gooey cheese = pure heaven. Sneaking in some spinach is an easy way to get your leafy greens.
