Menu Plan Monday #4

Hope you're having a fabulous, relaxing weekend! Below is my menu plan for the week. I'm trying a couple of these recipes for the first time so I'll probably be posting those recipes on here after I make them, that is if they're good. :)
I've gone back to weekly planning (for now at least). Our schedules have been busier lately and a monthly calendar just wasn't working. It was getting messy and unorganized and I hated it.
I have a monthly calendar that I write down the dinners I want to try but this is kept in my folder of menu plans. I have a separate weekly calendar for the definite menu and our schedules for the week.
So here's my dinner menu. As you'll see, 2 nights I'm not cooking because of events that I'm involved it, so Hubby will be on his own.

Cook's Night Off--meeting with my Hostess Team
Cook's Night Off--Open House for my Mary Kay business
Spicy Southwest Turkey Tenderloin (bought if from Sam's Club), red potatoes and vegetable
Tortilla Crusted Chicken Strips (from Southern Living magazine), rice and vegetable
Blue-Corn Blueberry Pancakes (from Cuisine at Home magazine) and bacon (might end up putting this recipe on here on Friday or Saturday, if they're good. :)
Lunch: 6 inch hoagie sandwiches
Dinner: Ribeye steaks (marinated with olive oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper, garlic powder), baked potatoes and vegetable
Lunch: lunch with friends after church
Dinner: burgers and fries (we might end up going out to eat with church friends after church since Labor Day is the next day)

How are the chicken strips from the southern living recipe? I saw it and marked it in mine, but haven't tried them yet!
