Menu Plan Monday: February 28

Yes, I know. I'm a day late. Again.

I hard the hardest time planning my menu for this week. Uninspired? Not so much as a mental block that suddenly lifted overnight. I made a quick trip to Brookshire's today to pick up a few sale items, and now I have something for the week, including a new recipe to try.

Well... I was going to make Shrimp Alfredo with Broccoli and Mushrooms and Caesar Salad. But... I thawed out chicken instead of the shrimp. Instead of going ahead with Chicken Alfredo, I decided to hold off and do something totally different.

I stir-fried the chicken with some olive oil and some Asian seasoning, then I tossed in some sliced onion, carrot matchsticks, broccoli florets, and fresh mushrooms. After those had cooked a little, I added some teriyaki sesame sauce I had bought at ALDI during their Asian food week. I served it over some leftover steamed rice from our fried rice a few nights earlier. It was a hit!

It was National Pancake Day at IHOP, and I took the boys for brunch. Not only was that my breakfast and my lunch, but it's most likely going to be my supper, too! Well, I'll probably eat some granola and yogurt... The boys will be hungry, though.

Yeah, the mushrooms are gone now...

Today was the last day of Brookshire's sale on the family pack of pork chops. Now we're good to go for three meals!
