Cheap and Easy Eatin' (May 7-11)

We were traveling for the end of last week and all weekend.  I had been trying to clean out the fridge before we left, so we came home to very empty cupboards!  This week is busy and having had lots of "fun" on vacation, I was looking to plan a menu that was both easy and cheap.

Monday:  Rotisserie chicken thighs and Costco quinoa salad
Tuesday:  BBQ chicken salad (using the rotisserie chicken breasts)
Wednesday:  Spaghetti and caesar salad
Thursday:  Steak and salad
Friday:  Either out or omelettes or something silly like english muffin pizzas

This is Monday's supper.  We are huge Costco lovers and this quinoa tabbouleh salad is a particular favorite.  I wanted to stretch the salad a bit and added a can of 6 variety beans, a chopped red pepper and some mushrooms.
