Monday's Meal Plan- The "Bring the Restaurant Home" Edition
I am changing things up a little this week :) I am going to try to "bring the restaurant home" in some of my meals. We have been SO busy that the times we do have to just enjoy family, we try to get out of the house. Many times that will include a cheap meal out... but as we all know, even a cheap meal out is more expensive than just eating at home.
So.. In 3 of the meals this week, I'm going to make them more fun by creating meals that are similar to a few of our fav places to eat!
Monday: Fish Tacos (alaskan cod is on sale at Kroger this week... also cabbage is in season right now) with homemade salsa and chips (Blue Coast Burrito)
Tuesday: Homemade Mac and Cheese with ham, big salad (feta, red onion, mushrooms, spinach and an olive oil and apple cider vinegar dressing.. our fav!)
Wednesday: Grilled Burgers and Homemade fries... (5 Guys) Not sure if they have milkshakes or not at Five Guys, but we'll do those too :)
Thursday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches (chopped chicken from the freezer, grapes, walnuts, celery, mayo, salt/pepper)
Friday: Cheese Fondue, mushrooms with a cream cheese filling and Chocolate fondue (The Melting Pot).. still looking for yummy recipes!
What restaurant would you "bring home" for your family to enjoy?
