  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 4/9/2012

    I’m finding that planning the menu a couple of weeks in advance helps me think farther ahead about cooking, so that it’s easier to get the shopping and cooking done. I like it! This week, I’ll prepare a menu for the rest of April, and I’ll plan a month-long menu for May. ^_^

    Here’s what’s on tap this week:

    Monday – Meatloaf Burgers, Sauteed Green Beans, Garlic Butterhorns, Macaroni Salad

    Tuesday – Takigomi gohan (rice cooked with seasonings and vegetables), Miso Chicken, Seasoned kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) or daikon (Japanese radish), Strawberry Shortcake

    Wednesday – Roast Chicken, Flatbread, Garlic Sauce, Steamed Broccoli

    Thursday – Pizza using artisan bread dough, Salad

    Friday – Chicken Salad Sandwiches (using leftover chicken), Fruit

    Saturday – {not sure what our plans are}

    Sunday – Dinner out

    1. Planning meals in advance sure is helpful. Of late, I’ve been planning my menus by the Publix sales that come out on Wednesdays. Gotta love BOGO!
