Meal Planning Monday

We strive to try new recipes each week and this week is no exception.

  • With our usual Lenten {no meat Fridays} challenge, we made Shrimp Fondue. I marinated uncooked large shrimp in a white wine & herb marinade...then did an oil fondue, with a Cumin dipping sauce - afterall, a great marinade and dip makes the fondue.
Shrimp Fondue for Two
  • We planned on grilling hot dogs {and chili dogs} with potato wedges for lunch.
  • Dinner was an Irish feast with friends at their home
  • We grilled out Johnsonville Sausage Brats and then combined it with sweet red peppers, garlic, and pasta sauce for a delicious dish! {See tomorrrow's post!}

{Mexican} Monday:
  • Creamy Chicken Enchiladas - a recipe found on my BigOven app. {review to come}
  • Grilled Chicken Salads - with a baked potato on the side
  • Pizza - It's not's DiGiorno {$5 on sale this week}
  • Grill out - Brats {with leftover sauerkraut from the Irish dinner} & Hot dogs...and a side of steamed cauliflower
Breakfasts: Oatmeal, Smoothie, Cereal, Peanut Butter Toast
Lunches: Leftovers, Salad, PB&J, Lean Cuisines

Hopefully, I have inspired you to make something new, borrow an aforementioned recipe or begin meal planning yourself.

  1. The pasta and sausage sounds delish. I'll have to tuck that into my memory to try after Easter, when I can start cooking with meat again! Can't wait to heat about the enchiladas too :)
