  • Menu Plan Monday: Week of 5/21/2012

    I’m not so sure about this monthly menu plan – while it’s nice to have it done, I have a harder time following it. Still, I can see the benefits of doing it all at once, especially when I don’t feel like planning any kind of menu at all. Like this week. So it’s kind of nice to have a plan in place, even if I end up not following it:

    Monday – Seafood Lasagna, some kind of vegetable

    Tuesday – Grilled Pizza, Salad

    Wednesday – Meatloaf, Sauteed Zucchini

    Thursday – Sardine Cauliflower Pasta, some kind of veggie

    Friday – Gazpacho Sevillana, Artisan Bread

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Dinner out

    1. I’ve not tried planning for a month. Good luck on the week!

    2. Mmmm grilled pizza sounds so good! Do y’all grill it directly on the grate or do you use a pizza stone? It’s something I’ve always wanted to try but we haven’t – yet!

        I grill right on the grate, but I have a metal pizza pan I am going to try next time to see if the dough burns less. It really has a fabulous flavor – I highly recommend giving it a try!
