Menu Plan Monday- Week of September 17th

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Menu Plan Monday and since I actually planned my menu for the week today, I thought I would share the recipes in a post.  With the fall chill now in the air, I’ve been filing away my summer recipes and started to look for colder-weather meals.  I have to admit that I had to put the heat on for the first time this season this morning- it was 52 degrees in our house!  Here are some meal ideas sure to warm you up for the week:

Menu Plan for the week of September 17th:

Monday: Slow-Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala with Indian Basmati Rice

Tuesday: Beef Noodle Salad Bowls with Steamed Broccoli

Wednesday: Quick and Easy Beef Chili from Whole Foods Meals for 4 under $15, Fall 2012 (could not find recipe on-line)

Thursday: Shrimp Enchiladas from Whole Foods Meals for 4 under $15, Fall 2012 (could not find recipe on-line)

Friday: Jambalaya and a side salad

Saturday: night off from cooking!

Sunday: Sunday Roast Chicken, Apple, Walnut, and Blue Cheese Salad, and Classic Apple Crisp for dessert

    I love the idea of planning out a menu for the week. I’m a busy college kid and don’t have time to make lavish meals and time-consuming entrees. Do you have any advice on ways I could make healthy and delicious food on a time crunch and a budget?

      Hi Melissa- When I did cook in college, I did a lot of George Foreman grilling. Check to see if your local grocery store or warehouse club sells chicken breasts in single-serve packets. It’s easy to freeze and pull out to defrost and marinade the night before you need them. I also recommend frozen veggies that are super easy to steam in the microwave, with a side of grilled bread or rice (many stores sell frozen rice that is also very easy to reheat).

      Thanks for stopping by 2S2C!
