Late Menu Plan Monday

We traveled to New York City this weekend for FiL's birthday (his 60th). We were supposed to return to Richmond Sunday evening (around 6 pm or so), but a band of severe weather caused them to cancel our flight. We were stuck in New York for another night, and we ended up flying into Washington, DC and driving back home instead (getting up at 3 am to catch our flight included) since the flight to Richmond was full (they actually ended up canceling the totally full flight that we couldn't get on Sunday night into Richmond because of the weather also). I was able to get my next door neighbor to come over and take care of the dogs (my mom and stepdad stayed the weekend), whew! Anyway, because of all this, by the time we got home yesterday, hubby and I were exhausted and we spent most of yesterday napping/sleeping. Luckily he had already asked off for yesterday. My plan to take Sunday evening to Menu Plan like usual was thrown off, and maybe even wait until Monday was totally thrown out the window. And heck even today I'm cheating, I'm using Saving Dinner Low Carb book to do it. Here's the shopping list for Summer Week 1 that I'm using.

Tuesday: Tandoori-style Chicken with grilled yellow squash and brown rice
Wednesday: Thai Beef Salad with celery stick and spaghetti
Thursday: Greek Turkey Burgers with grilled eggplant and onions and a salad with red potatoes
Friday: Pub Pork Ribs with Coleslaw and potato salad
Saturday: Skillet Salmon with Horseradish Cream,Caprice Salad and brown rice
Sunday: Crock Swiss Steak with Mashed Potatoes and steamed broccoli
