Menu Monday!

I've been reading Rachel's blog for quite some time and have always wanted to join in with her Menu Mondays. Now that I'm done with grad school I can actually concentrate on planning meals again and (hopefully) remember to take pictures!

Here is what we ate this week:

My Meals:

Pinned Image
So good from Pinterest found on this blog

This was the first time I made this and was delicious--very easy too. I wish I could say this was my picture, but I totally forgot to take one, and we had plenty of left overs. I also didn't add the sour cream and avocado on top although I'm sure that would have been delicious.

We eat a lot of Mexican...can you tell? They were not on back to back days though :)
I actually grilled these just like they said to and they were delicious. Unfortunately I forgot to add the black beans :(

Turkey Burgers

J and I really try not to eat much red meat. It's been almost three weeks since the last time we had it. There's not particular reason (J said it's not the best for you), but we know there are good things in it too. Thankfully we both love turkey as a substitute. I forgot to take a picture the night we ate these, but I made an extra for my lunch. I am obsessed with mushrooms (cooked) and eat them whenever I can, so of course I added some on my burger. 

J's Meals

There is an amazing Greek restaurant in Columbus called Loops. We really can't get enough of it. J picked it up for us on Friday because we had both been talking about it and had not had it in over a month. I tried the Jackson Street in a salad (comes in pita). It had grilled chicken, mushrooms, cucumbers, and hummus. It was delicious

Sweet & Sour Chicken

This was J's other meal for the week. Wow! He is usually an amazing cook, but we were both pretty busy and didn't plan as well. This week will be better.

Hope you enjoyed our first Monday Menu! Don't forget to link up with Rachel and check out her blog. She is also a fellow teacher and such a doll!


  1. Yay! So glad you linked up this week! The enchilada pasta sounds tasty!

  2. Both of those Mexican dishes look AMAZING. I'm going to have to try the enchilada pasta!

  3. I need to try both of the Mexican dishes. We love Mexican in this household!
