Menu Plan Monday: Texas, here we come!

You may have deduced from the title that we are headed to TX this week!  You may also have noticed how excited I am!!  So, it’s a short menu plan this week since we leave on Thursday at a truly ungodly hour.  I am hoping to keep “menu planning” for the 7 weeks we are away with meals I am in charge of or recipes we discover and make while in my homeland.  Fear not, I will be blogging!  ;)

This week’s abbreviated menu plan

Honey Orange Shrimp on Udon Noodles

This week, we are finishing freezer foods, which include a bag of shrimp.  You will them starring in several meals.  ;)  Honestly, all 3 of these meals are some of our favorites, so give ‘em a try sometime!

After this, I am hoping for some serious Tex-Mex and my mother-in-law’s wonderful cooking!  I get many recipes from her and from my mom, so I am very excited to visit them both!
