Menu Plan Monday #45 and some news!

Menu Plan Monday


   Hey guys! I have some exciting news to share, a long with this weeks menu 🙂  I’m sure most of you know that the last 7 years I have worked as a surgery scheduler for Ear, Nose and Throat Doctors. It has been an amazing job and I have learned so much. The Dr’s I work for are the greatest and have been the most supportive bosses.

  Over the last 6 months I’ve been debating whether or not to quit my job. It’s been a reliable source of income and it’s been so great. The problem is, it’s full time and I don’t have the time to dedicate recipes and follow through on things with my blog. Last week things happened that made me realize it’s time to leave, so I gave them my notice. As of March 11th I will be a full time blogger! 

   I am beyond excited to be able to stay home and blog full time. I will be posting recipes more consistently and every Monday will have a menu plan. No more sporadic posts for me. I also have some more things in the works I am SUPER excited to tell you about. It should be soon!

  A long with blogging full time soon, I’m most excited to be home more with my kids. That part of all this is the most important to me ♥ I’m so excited for this new chapter in my life!

  Okay, let’s get this menu started! Here’s what I’ll be making this week:


BBQ Chicken & Bacon Pizza



Chef Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing



Homemade Fried Rice with diced Ham & Pineapple



In n’ Out Cheeseburgers


Chicken Bow Tie Pasta Salad

  1. I have to say that I am excited for you but at the same time so very sad not to be working with you anymore on the surgery schedule!! But I know you have a lot of fun things coming up and you will be with your family more, which is most important. Now that I have your blog, I will stay in touch this way!

    Good luck to you, Holly

    1. Stacy, Thank you so much for your sweet comment. We LOVE those enchiladas, too. I actually just made them the other day and updated the picture. I just need to upload it to the post 🙂

  4. Congrats! Your blog and The Pioneer Woman are my go-to blogs for dinner ideas.

    P.S. – We’re also having fried rice this week, except I’m throwing chicken in mine and picking from egg drop soup from our favorite Chinese place.
