How To Cook: Meal Planning Mondays

by How To Mommy on 07.29.12

I leave town in the middle of this week and my mother-in-law is coming in town to help my husband with the girls.

I thought it would be nice of me to not only plan the menu for them, but cook the meals ahead of time as well.

Here’s what they can expect for dinner this week:


Chicken Acapulco {Freeze leftovers}
{This recipe is very similar to mine, only I use monterrey cheese and not swiss}
Brown Rice
Green Beans


Grilled Chicken
Corn on the Cob {freeze leftovers}
Garden Tomatoes and Cottage Cheese


{I kiss the girls and my husband good-bye and head East for a week!}
Tacos {already made and froze the meat}
Refried Beans


Lasagna {made on Sunday and froze the extra}


Out to Eat
{Hubby always has to show his mom some of our best restaurants when she’s in town}


Frozen Pizza


Ground Beef Enchiladas {already made and frozen}
Corn {from Tuesday}


{I get home late Monday night, so this is the last meal without me.}
Chicken Acapulco
Brown Rice
Green Beans

This week I’m linking up with Organizing Junkie.

Just stopping by from Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday!
It looks like it’s going to be in the low 100’s but humid in Las Vegas today.
Your menu plan looks delicious! When I was working I would prepare several meals over the weekend. It was very helpful.
I hope you have a terrific week
