Monday Menu Plan

We had a very nice weekend. We took a short trip to a resort with a water park and enjoyed our time away as a family! Our kids spent about ten hours in two days at the water park and loved every minute of it. I (yes me) even went down this huge slide. My kids are still talking about the look on my face when I came shooting out of the tube into the pool.
This week I am planning to grill several times. The weather is so great everyone just wants to be outside. Tonight we grilled smoked brats and enjoyed the 80 degrees.
Here is my menu plan for the week:
Monday: Grilled barbecue chicken, red potatoes, asparagus & corn
Tuesday: Taco Salad
Wednesday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches with fresh fruit
Thursday: Grilled chicken over fettuccine alfredo with salad and garlic bread
Friday: Grilled Hamburgers with teriyaki sauce and pineapple, salad and chips
I posted here a few recipes from last weeks menu.

The water park sounds like so much fun! I love those water slides.
Your menu is making me hungry, and no eating after 8 p.m. so I guess I better go drink some water :o).

The water park sounds like such a fun vacation. We will have to do that some time.

Have fun grilling this week!

Such a summer-y sounding menu! YUM!

Susanne said...

Waterparks and family time go hand in hand!

MMM, I did grilled chicken yesterday and it was heaven. I love when the weather gets nice enough to start barbqueing! I've even done a bbq pizza that was awesome!

I'm so glad you had a great time. I missed Hunter on the recycling field trip, though.
Your menu does look sooo yummy. Can we come over?? just jokin'! I think we will grill out a lot, too this week.

We spent our weekend outside in the pool and was just wonderful.

You are a brave woman to go down the huge slide LOL

Great menu, thanks for sharing :)

It sounds like lots of people are starting to grill again! We need a new grill.
Yours all sounds good. Happy Monday!

Your post about the waterpark reminds me of our visit to Sea World. My teen and hubby wanted me to join them in a water ride. Well, I actually went twice!
I almost broke my eyeglasses but I'm definitely glad I went.
You have a great week!

oohhhhh a water park, I love water parks.
Your menu looks wonderful. I'm making your slow Cooker Italian Shredded Beef Hoagies that you posted last week, this week for one of our meals.. Thank you for posting it.

Sounds like a fun weekend Chris. We have a Water Park near us that boasts it has been named the number one water park in the world. I can't vouch for that as I have never gone. Our kids are planning to spend time there this summer with the grandkids so perhaps I'll get to check it out. I'm not too sure about going down any slides though :)
Thank you so much for your encouraging comments Chris. You bless my heart!
