Menu Plan Monday: Back to routine…

posted in: Simply Home | 1

Well, after my 31 Day series in October, it’s time to get back to the routine of posting my menu plans here on Romance on a dime. (I did still menu plan during October MOST of the weeks, I just didn’t take the time to post it here.)

I’m not going grocery shopping until tomorrow, so some of the details such as sides and what type of pizza I haven’t determined yet. I’m going to be picking up what’s on sale and making something from that.

This week, I chose several recipes from Cooking Light.


Crispy Pork Medallions from Cooking LIght


Menu Plan

Monday: leftovers

Tuesday: Crockpot Chili (with some Sweet Potatoes added to it, as in this chili recipe) & cornbread

Wednesday: Crispy Pork Medallions & Garlic Fries

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: Japanese Chicken Rice Bowl

Saturday: homemade pizza (what type, still to be determined but if you want some inspiration, here are some of what we have done in the past)

Sunday: Mexican Chicken Lime Soup



One thing we had last week, which both my husband and I LOVED was the Avocado-Bacon Breakfast Wrap. Since Avocados are on sale again at Aldi this is a great frugal breakfast!! (Plus I picked up eggs pretty cheap at Hy-Vee last weekend.)

  1. Stopping by from Menu Plan Monday. I’m not a huge avocado fan although guacamole isn’t too bad 😉 but those wraps look really good!
