Menu Plan for August 4th - August 10th

I haven't done a menu plan since beginning of July...!!! I feel so WEIRD. Well, the kitchen is completely unpacked, and life is somewhat normal enough for us to have regularly scheduled meals again. And I'm getting back into the swing of things (read: going grocery shopping and cooking again instead of running to fast food/instant meals/TV trays).

I only do a menu plan for our dinners since the other two meals of the day happen at completely different times. My husband gets up at 3:30am, I get up around 10am. He eats lunch at 11:30am, I eat lunch around 3pm. It's rather pointless and silly to plan out anything else.

If the title of our dinner intrigues you and you would like the recipe, leave a comment and I'll post it up. It's just rather time-consuming for me to write up all the recipes up front, but I'll be more than happy to do it if someone expresses interest in a particular one.

Lettuce wrap w/ ground beef instead of chicken
Chocolate chip cookies for dessert!

Chicken with lemon & capers

Sweet pea fried rice


LEFTOVER NIGHT - Since my husband has duty at least once a week, I decided to have a moving leftover night. Whatever night he's not home will be leftover night, since it's pointless to cook for one and he takes leftovers anyway.

Grilled flank steak with confetti salsa

Burritos & Tacos!

I have absolutely no idea...because although he is presently unaware of this fact, hubby is responsible for dinner on this night. And while he's doing that, I might make ice cream s'mores sandwiches or something tasty for dessert.

This will be a very interesting week, since I've never made 3 of the above recipes before. I'll be sure to share (maybe with pictures) how it turns out.
