Menu Plan Tuesday?

Hosted by: orgjunkie.com

I'm trying to be more organized so I've decided to hop on the meal planning train! I'm not really off to a good start as I plan on doing this every Monday but I'm a bit late doing my grocery shopping and planning this week.

Wednesday - Mushroom, Spinach, and Ricotta Stuffed Manicotti, Chicken Parmesan, and Salad
Thursday - Dine Out
Friday - Garlic Onion Burgers (Garlic Onion JalapeƱo Burgers for DH!), steamed mixed veggies, and Steak Fries
Saturday - Chicken & Dumplings with French bread
Sunday - Meatloaf and Garden Salad

I have to be careful with my meal planning so that I don't choose too many dishes with chicken or pasta, I could eat a variation of chicken everyday and be just fine and well pasta I'm Italian, need I say more? I'm also making meatloaf for the first time this week, DH hates meatloaf but has promised he'll try it - we'll see how this goes! Maybe next week I can figure out a healthier menu.

Welcome to MPM!

So how do you make your garlic onion burgers?? those sound yummy!

I totally understand about the variation of chicken everyday! I have more ways of making chicken on my master meals list than I do any other meat! I guess though that isn't too bad cause chicken is a healthier meat to eat.

thanks so much for the comment, here's the main recipe that I go off of.

* 1 pound ground beef (sirloin works best but honestly anything tastes equally as yummy!)
* 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 cup minced onion
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning

mix all ingredients in medium-large bowl and refrigerate for 2-4 hrs. Preheat grill on high heat for 15 minutes. Form burgers into 1/2" thick patties, lightly oil grate and grill for approximately 6 minutes, turning once.

I use a George Foremen grill and don't turn them and refridgerating the meat is what gives it the most flavor. If you try them let me know how they turn out! :)
