Menu Plan Monday for March 9

It’s menu time again. My mom was nice enough to bring some BBQ ribs by today, which takes care of one of our meals this week. And today I went ahead and made a pot of chicken tortilla soup. I divided it into two bowls and placed the bowls in the freezer. One will be our dinner for Wednesday, and the other be used later on.

My husband just started a new job a few weeks ago, and he’s working a rotating shift. It makes meal planning a little harder, because I have to work around his schedule. Off days and day shift are easy to plan, but night shift is a little harder because I have to be able to throw things together fairly quickly. To make those days a little easier, I’m making things that don’t take a lot of effort or time to cook, and I’m trying to make things ahead of time (like the soup), or else make those nights our leftover nights. It’s taking a little extra planning on my part, but I know I’ll adjust soon. Wish me luck!

  1. Sounds great! Are hamburger steaks like salisbury steaks? Is there a gravy? I think my dh would really like that!

    I’m a red beans and rice girl myself!


  2. I hope all goes well with his new job, I like to see that I am not the only one who decides a whole week of dinners in advance. Everyday sounds great.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I love red beans and rice and my husband is a hamburger steak kind of guy. I think that is one of his top 10 favorite foods. Your tortilla soup looks really good.
